What a great time to highlight our teaching excellence. I wish there was time, and space, to highlight all of the great comments, but here are a few from this week:
“Dr. Dassel always provides constructive feedback. She is organized, pleasant and kind. Out of all the courses that I have taken online, I enjoy her classes the most. She has mentored me to become a better student. She takes the time to help me understand formatting and writing styles and relevant information that is current to the field of Gerontology. She keeps her platform clear, concise and engaging. I am grateful to have been her student and look forward to taking additional classes from her.”
“Kara Dassel has been my favorite online instructor out of all of the classes that I have taken online. She posts announcements at the beginning of every week so that everyone knows what is expected of them for that week and she is very organized. She grades things quickly and she gives a reasonable amount of assignments. Her tests also directly reflect what was taught in the course.”
“Dr. Dassel made everything very clear with the modules by laying them out with a "step-by-step" process. The weekly routine made it easy to keep up with the assignments. If anything changed, she made sure to communicate the changes with us through announcements. It reduced stress for me.”
Three cheers, Kara!
