Student Feedback

SEMINAR IN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY

Incredibly approachable and engaging, making for a successful discussion-based seminar. He allowed his students to make inferences from the material, and supplemented our conversations with expert commentary. His encouraging tone allowed for a positive learning environment.

This was my favorite professor in the department. Subject was relevant and interesting. Lots of reading to support creative thinking. Loved the power point presentations. Loved the effort the professor put in creating a real community feeling in the class. Professor was interesting, compassionate, encouraging, helpful, available, patient, willing, and overall super nice.

Professor Davis is a great teacher, good at facilitating discussion, but can also sit back and let the students run the conversation. I enjoyed that he is flexible and open to talk about anything relevant to the subject and enjoys a good debate. His class was a fun and relaxing class to go to every Thursday.

One of the best psychology professors I have had. He is knowledgeable and passionate about his subject matter. He is kind and interested in what students have to say. He allowed for student led conversations to veer off the main topic in order for us all to gain more knowledge of a range of subjects and to learn more about the varied experiences of the students within the class.

The course was overall, interesting and challenging. The instructor was dynamic and managed classroom discussion quite well. He was always prepared, and organized the seminars very well. He opened up the conversations, and we brought up a lot of real-world themes, debating them at length thanks to the various readings assigned. Professor Davis is a fun teacher, and maintained a casual attitude while being strict for the assignments and discussions.

I really liked Professor Davis’ teaching. We had very intriguing discussions that were relevant and thought provoking.

The class was lecture based with a great amount of class discussion, at times very lively. I learned so much from students that were passionate about what they were sharing.

Professor Davis was informal, engaging, and an absolutely amazing teacher. I felt so comfortable in our seminar that class discussion was something everyone was involved with.

Very knowledgeable and engaged teaching, and noticeably excited about the material which was contagious.

PERSONALITY PSYCHOLOGY

Lectures/presentations are very informative and interesting, professor does a great job of talking through it in an intriguing way and not boring! Material is useful

He’s great! He teaches well, he’s funny, and he really seems to care about us and if we learn or not.

The outside readings relate really well with what we are talking about, and they make what we are learning even more real.

Great instructor! Very knowledgeable on his area and always ready to answer questions. Also, very understandable of students problems. I liked the way he divided the grades of the overall course, encouraging not only to be prepared on exams but also to write papers in a regular basis, which makes you be always prepared and not fall behind. I definitely think he is great!

I thoroughly enjoyed this class, and the lectures as well! You were very enthusiastic and I could tell you had/have a genuine interest in us and how much we learned and how well we did.

You are a great professor! You are very knowledgeable and were able to facilitate discussion really well! I was thankful for this course.

One of my favorite professors in my 3 years here. I wish he was teaching more upper-level psych classes!

I have truly enjoyed this course and feel it has given me a better understanding of the different types of individuals I will be interacting with on a day to day basis in College but also in the ‘real’ world.

With the help of a strong support system, daily meditations, and the knowledge I am learning from my psychology courses, especially this one, I am continuing to grow as a person in a positive way.

This class has definitely given me a more complete understanding of myself and how I became the person that I am today.

I have thoroughly enjoyed every lecture and discussion as together we have delved deeper into all of the facets of human personality.
