Very informative and eye opening. As long as you keep an open mind and fresh perspective, you will definitely learn a lot. In fact, it might even change a person's philosophy and teaching philosophy.

Interesting topics that are helpful for new teachers. The projects help by making you think about the material in relation to your classroom. I found the peer-reviewing process hit-and-miss.

I learned a lot from the lectures. The essay grades should not be solely based on peer review. There should be instructor input on the essay grade as well.

very good course. it focuses more around reflecting on your ideas about education, as opposed to teaching you concrete teaching techniques

The fact that the essays was peer reviewed made me skeptical about the credibility of this course.

The theorem is very useful. But sometimes it's a little abstracting.

I enjoyed the course for my own personal development. I did not enjoy the fact that work was plagiarized multiple times. This more of an integrity issue, because the person that initially plagiarized my essay was still on the course after the fact. I noticed this because I was chosen to grade another essay from them. Where I come from plagiarism is a zero tolerance policy. If you cheat by copying someone's work then you fail the class. I felt this didn't happen with the person who copy and pasted my whole essay and changed the title.
