The instructor was very well-intentioned but the overall feeling of the course was disorganized and chaotic. It felt like the professor was designing it as we went and the expectations weren't clear. He was very indecisive and when prompted with questions he would just turn them back around to the students. Despite the course allegedly being focused on the Climate Crisis we did not study this at all.

The professor is very passionate about the subjects of the climate crisis and photography, but there was an immense amount of confusion due to disorganization and indecisiveness. There was not a proper balance of both subjects, but more on photography, and less on the climate crisis. Mindfulness was emphasized, when writing should be higher on the agenda. Regardless, it was a nice class for improvement as a photographer. Anyone who enjoys photography will like the class.

This is part of the Middlebury-Copenhagen first year class. The course lay emphasize on mindfulness and place. It is a very chill and relaxing class as FYSE and relatively light course load. Students interested in mindful walks and photography will really enjoy this class.

Professor is very enthusiastic about the topic but the open-endedness of the class made assignments very confusing. I feel like more focus on writing and less on mindfulness is needed. The class went in circles at times as well.
