ENVS0215 with Kathryn Morse5 days ago

This course was easy but fun and engaging. There are only two major assignments which are 4-5 page papers on the readings and a final group project--all of which you get more than enough time on. Morse was very accommodating to people who turned in stuff late/asked for extensions and the class discussions were very lively and insightful. Would take again.

I didn't enjoy this course, was extremely basic---more so than APES if you took it in high school. We spent maybe a month on systems diagrams/feedback loops which was pointless and it felt like 97% of the class was not engaged for good reason. Would not recommend unless you need it for your major.

ENVS0261 with Joseph Holler9 days ago

It's very clear that Joe tried to make the class less stressful than it usually is. I think it worked pretty well overall. There are two visual essays (not much writing) and two workflow construction assignments which take up the vast majority of work outside of class. Otherwise, there isn't that much to do besides some short question sets. The class wasn't too hard, but workflows were spikes in difficulty to watch out for. Grading can be a little annoying, as it's not all housed on Canvas and it's hard to tell what your exact grade is, but this class ended up being far better than its old reputation suggests.
