Materials studied in this class were not suitable for intro courses and at times were a bit too chaotic. The readings were mostly boring and the professor was just reading off of her slides instead of actively engaging with the class.

Do not take this class with Chwalisz. She is a terrible presenter and the lectures get incredibly boring. She tries to turn the class into a discussion quite often, but she is not good at inviting students to talk and it ends up being a very quiet class. She also isn't very nice. It takes a lot to get an answer out of her, even for simple things. During office hours, she is vague and unhelpful the entire time. Anytime you attempt to talk to her outside of class, it always seems like she is disinterested and focused on other things.

This was the professor's first semester teaching this course, and she was in the third trimester of her pregnancy, so I try and have a little grace, but I would not recommend this class. There was far too much reading that dry and unnecessary. I had a tough time determining if this was an intro or advanced class because we would start with a basic introduction to the frameworks and then jump to complex applications. Each class ended with the last half hour led by students. We had to do a presentation and lead a class activity or discussion. She was a very tough grader as well. I took the class for an IGST global course, and I'm glad I took a class on IPE, but I do not think I learned as well as I could have in the way this class is organized and taught.
