Student Opinions

This space is intended to compile general comments from past students on the course. It will be judiciously moderated for extreme and unprofessional comments, but otherwise, it is open to a broad range of student feedback.

  • Mary Lou is a fun, dynamic professor who keeps you awake - which is good because the class is early on Friday morning! Not too much lecture time which is always a nice change. Various practitioners come in to present on techniques they use in their work. Lots of practical and hands on experience - good for resume building! The small project assignment gives you lots of flexibility to look into a specific participatory technique that interests you - you can write a paper, do a presentation, facilitate a meeting, etc etc.  Anyone who is looking into a career in natural resource management should take this course to learn how to work with stakeholders.

The Instructor's Take...

This space is exclusively for the instructor to broadly comment on his or her course, and respond to commonly received feedback, explain methods and approaches, and encourage student registration. Instructors: Please limit to 300 words, or link to a wiki page of your own creation to explain in detail.
