Great experience that has changed my perspective of the world and my role in it. I would like to take this opportunity to thank professor Roth for taking on this course and offering it to everyone.

Makes you think critically about everyones role in changing the world with concrete actions. We should not take things for granted or think that it is someone else's responsibility.

El curso fue fantástico pero quiero notificar que en más de una oportunidad mis compañeros me han calificado bajo por no saber el idioma en el que esta escrita mi entrega o porque no saben español, lo cual me parece muy injusto. No pido que aprendan español pero creo que todos tenemos Google Translate a la mano y yo personalmente me he tomado el tiempo de traducir trabajos que estaban en ingles para poder calificarlos, pero que ellos no lo hagan y pongan un cero sin ni siquiera preocuparse por mi ensayo me parece una muestra de la poca importancia que le daban al curso y a mi trabajo, la verdad muy irracional de su parte.

A little bit outdated, but still very valuable lessons and frameworks for thinking about tackling the world's most pressing problems. I found many of the readings and videos (particularly the snippets from the Social Good Summit) to be very interesting and moving. I would have loved a different, more reflective and holistic final essay prompt—but overall, I enjoyed this six-week journey and feel better equipped to talk about impact and change with others.

T​he course has tons of great information, but I would have appreciated a more extensive examination of the often deleterious effects to "developing" countries of the conditions imposed upon and required by the World Bank, IMF, et al., as part and parcel of their "aid" packages.

An interactive Course!

overall, interesting concepts and discussions. the videos and interviews are far too long. Could easily be reduced by 25% without losing the narrative. the course is clearly more than a few years old and needs updating - for example, there are mentions of how strange online video tools are, which are now generally commonplace. I also found the instructor to be very distracting - he often spoke overtop of people, and I found his tone quite patronizing. Unfortunately that tone overshadows the intent of the course.

I found the comments of Frederique Apffel-Marglin really offensive and misleading, this has a political bias with false statements about the green revolution.
