“Dr. Johnson spent last year teaching me about qualitative and quantitative data analysis including coding interviews, the process of write-ups, and speaking my truth in a scholarly manner. Dr. Johnson has such ease within her teaching style. She has made me feel heard, valued, and, above all - worth it”—student observation. .
“From day one, sitting next to an undecided first-year student, she treated me as an equal. She has always made my ideas feel important and uplifted my work. Now, when I draft my papers for any other class, I always start with a “15-minute brain-dump”, a trick Carrie Ann taught us to just get our ideas on the paper”—student observation.
“I like the time, location, and teacher. She doesn’t act like a strict teacher who only cares about grades. She genuinely cares about us and wants us to learn. I have liked most of the assignments and they are interesting and different.”—student observation.
“You do very well with encouraging while also pointing out where improvements can be made. You also discussed revisions for the ePortfolio, as well as work that has been done in class in preparation for each paper, thereby helping the student to see the bigger picture into which each paper/project fits. Your use of the rubrics is appreciated; the rubrics help both you and your students.” –supervisor observation.
“What helped my learning the most is the feedback on all my assignments (especially the video feedback). It was so helpful to have such detailed comments where it justified points I missed or things I did well on”—student observation.
“Carrie Ann focuses on facilitating and applied knowledge versus just teaching and reading from the book. She spent time making sure we understood the material versus just mindlessly completing the homework assignments and projects”—student observations.
