Introduction to Historical Practice: Variable Topics in European History: Visual Historical Methods
Winter 2020 - I took Visual historic methods during the zoom year. I'm not sure why no one has reviewed this professor. He's one of the most approachable and all around just nice professors. Having said that, he doesn't hold back on feedback. He will tell you exactly where you came up short. I really appreciated this as it helped me grow and do better. He let the class decide the format- whether we wanted synchronous or asynchronous online lectures and the discussion aspect of the class was really lively. Whether people were more comfortable in chat or talking, he was accommodating to both. Most of the material was very engaging and he polled us at the end of class to find out which materials we engaged more with which we didn't. He was really attentive to student feedback. He also helped us every step of the way on our final projects- even letting people resubmit portions (like the proposal) to improve their grade. This class was just such a good balance of understanding and hard work. It wasn't easy, but it was enjoyable, and I felt like I learned a valuable skill. It's definitely worthwhile for any humanities major interested in visual media/methods.
