The best aspects of the course included the knowledgeable, approachable, and funny professor who encouraged group discussion and emphasized understanding and problem solving with the materials presented. Students enjoyed the format of the class, which included group essays and the use of published papers as course materials. Some students had difficulty with the lack of guidance of the open?ended assignments. This class could be improved by posting more detailed lecture notes, and providing more detailed feedback on written assignments. Prospective students should know this course will require a lot of group work and writing. This course was highly recommended.

The best aspect of this course was the interaction facilitated by Professor Lee who was really concerned with the overall understanding of the discussed concepts. Students enjoyed researching and discussing current topics in the field. The worst aspect of the course was the limited distribution of grades and the flow of the lectures. Improvements could be made by giving students more graded assignments as an opportunity to spread out the weight of grades. Prospective students should be aware that this course requires critical thinking and active participation to do well.

The students found the individual projects and student presentations helpful. They found the material interesting and liked that they were able to pursue personal topics of interest; however, the students said that assignment expectations were not clear and grading was arbitrary. They also said the professor was sometimes hard to understand. Students would like to have more feedback from the professor, clearer description of expectations, and better preparation for exams. Future students should be ready to attend and participate in class and should have a background in experimental science and biochemistry/cell biology.
