This course was overall engaging. Professor Coe is very passionate about Desert Ecology. She helps her students debunk all sorts of desert myths that have been normalized for generations. There are weekly readings and questions that she covers in class. She also encourages discussion throughout the lectures.
Very enjoyable class with a wide range of assignments and lab work, including both field and greenhouse labs. There's an emphasis on paper discussions towards the end of the semester, so presentations are a pretty common type of assignment. However, while assignments had rubrics, feedback was sometimes not given back in any form besides a grade.
Professor Coe was extremely engaging and accommodating. She clearly cares about the material, which was reflected in her teaching. I would highly recommend taking a class with Professor Coe if you have the opportunity.
