STUDENT OPINIONS FROM PROFESSOR KEELING'S
SUMMER 1997 CLASSES
GEOGRAPHY FIELD SCHOOL IN ECUADOR
** Excellent. Very enthusiastic and down-to-earth.
** Excellent. Keeling is an expert in urban geography. Very approachable.
** David is an excellent teacher, is fair, and knows more about everything than anyone
I ever met.
** Dr. Keeling will be a major asset to this program next year. As a matter of fact, he
will make the trip! He taught us a great deal in class and was very interesting and
inspiring to chat to on a friendly level. He is a weathered and wise traveler!
** I would recommend this program highly to any curious, good-tempered mind.
** Sometimes the amount of material covered in this course was overwhelming. I think a
little bit more free time would be advantageous and maybe the students wouldn't be such
complete grumps. Overall, this was a very eye-opening experience and very
** By far the best part of this course was the professor. He had an excellent attitude
towards the subjects studies, the students, etc. He kept the work fresh and fun while
still demanding a decent amount of work.
** By far the best part of this course was the professor. I could not have asked for
one more knowledgable about the subjects we studied. He had an excellent attitude
towards teaching and staying positive and keeping the course fresh and fun.
** Professor Keeling was a wonderful teacher and gave us all inspiration to learn.
** The only suggestion I have is to allow a little more free time for students,
otherwise a great teaching job.
** David is an excellent teacher that is great to be around and it makes everyone happy
with his good attitude. This is an experience I will never forget in Ecuador with such
URBAN GEOGRAPHY -- GEOG480/580 (E-Town)
** I really enjoyed learning all the stuff you taught, but I do have one problem. I
just felt that this class should have a prerequisite because I found a lot of the
material difficult to grasp. But overall Prof. Keeling I found your class very
interesting and useful in the real world and I learned a lot.
** Text was boring. Needs to be more down-to-earth. Dr. Keeling should write the
** I wish I had taken this during the regular semester. Too much information to absorb
in a short period.
** Even if it's a short period to complete the assignment it gave me a lot of insight
on how to evaluate places and can continue to study more about geography. The cities
are very interesting.
** Extremely knowledgable. Stimulated interest to me in a course that I would normally
** You're a great inspiration to us "struggling students."
** I feel the work load is a little much for a class that lasts a month.
** The text book explains some of the concepts, but not clearly - I think Professor
Keeling should write the textbook for this course. He explains things so well.
SCOPE AND METHODS - GEOG300
