20. What did you like best about this course?
21. If you were teaching this course, what would
you do differently?
The way the course material was presented and
the use of multimedia equipment.
The instructors extensive knowledge on Antarctica.
The information taught is cutting edge
It presents a fresh new feeling at a university
that seems all too common.
It was very informative and creative.
I liked how we had the computer to use in our
Interesting and every class is different.
It provided very current information on a number
of scientific issues that were of importance in the world today.
The topic of iceLIFE itself attracted me to the
course. No other course at RUTGERS
offered a course similar in content.
The ability to use the Smart Classroom for visual
info about the antarctic and other class topics.
I appreciate the instructions, encouragement of
student participation, experience sharing.
The professor really wants the students to learn
a lot, instead of just memorizing facts.
22. In what way, if any, has the course or the
instructor encouraged your intellectual growth and progress?
Not much - like the class as it is.
I don't think I could be so nice and positive
on such a regular basis.
Some more films added to the course. I am sure
National Geographic has some good films.
Have a few more in-class speakers.
Have the days split from one to two.
23. Other comments or suggestions.
I feel as though I've been to the places he's
In many ways, he has motivated us in respect to
the marine science field. He told us many 1st hand anecdotes about the
A lot of the work in this class was done through
the Internet. It provided us with up to date information, and taught us
to use a computer in ways that will be important in our careers.
By encouraging us to study what interests us on
our own. He showed us a little and tells us to go find more = active learning.
He has shown how to effectively use the INTERNET
as a research tool & a means of communication between colleagues &
other sources of info
He brought a topic of iceLIFE and connected it
to other topics selecting to the US environment.
His open format encouraged you to seek out for
yourself and expand where you will.
Never knew so much life existed in arctic regions.
Possibly minoring in Marine Science.
He made us want to come to class and made us interested
in something we didn't know about.
The only professor I've ever had that was happy
about me calling him at home to answer questions. He got an A.
The use of a "Smart" Classroom greatly aids the
classroom + learning environment. Although the connection was very slow
at times. The use of the WEB allowed very recent information to be presented
directly in class.
There should be a computer in the classroom to
use to access the WEB from.
I think the computer should be installed permanently
in the classroom.
More INTERNET access in the classroom.
Prof. Kils not only cares about us learning, but
is an understanding down to earth instructor.
