CommentsGeog1101 (Fall 13)
Dr. Shannon provided interesting examples for topics, used a variety of teaching techniques, and always encouraged class participation.That was one of the most interesting and useful classes. Thank you!Dr. Shannon is awesome. He cares about the subject and loves it. Great teacher and person.Professor Shannon was a great teacher and very approachable if you were to have a question or needed extra help with a topic. Great professor! Cares about students and makes class interesting

He was a very good instructor! Would love to have him again.Prof. Shannon makes sure we understand geography is so much more than just maps and locations.I like that the lectures aren't terribly boring and interactive considering there are so many people. I enjoy how open the class is, with its polls and Professor Shannon asking questions it keeps me engaged and interested.I have also never been afraid to ask a question in class and feel comfortable with Professor Shannon.

Comments from CFAN3480:
He was careful to give us a wide range of views on what we should do with the food system and was good at facilitating discussion.I really liked all of the readings and the discussions in small groups in class. He was very good at helping stimulate conversation among us. Jerry was helpful and engaged as an instructor and available to meet for office hours with questions. Extensive discussion via email beyond course materials Really interesting course, I’m really glad I took it. I hope there are more opportunities like this for interdisciplinary study of the food system, this was a great class. Class activities were the most helpful in helping me to understand concepts, like the difficulty of interdisciplinary work.I LOVED the readings for this course.
Comments from Geog3371:
He donated his time out of class to help me understand what was not clear to meThe instructor makes students feel at easeVery organized, passionate about subject material. Knew his information.Extremely flexible and a great teacher overall. Tried to keep the class engaged and interested and picked really good subject matter for the course. He provided really good feedback for us as well in regards to our papers and other assignments. I really enjoyed the class and can say he was one of my favorite teachers thus far.Very organized, made expectations clear, and always made himself available for questions and comments. He took an interest in his students, and was concerned that the course was engaging.The lectures were amusing and explained the material well. The discussions really helped to understand the material further for those who did not have a full grasp of it. The activities were fun.The readings were all really worthwhile and presented an adequately wide range of ideas and perspectives, many of which I had been unfamiliar with in the past. I thought the lectures went well, and could have actually been more frequent.Videos and mapping exercises were really fun and helpful
