A sample of anonymous student comments on SOC 241, "Sociology of Work," taught by Kenneth Westhues in Fall 2001, at the University of Waterloo
Other professors should take this course so that they can reflect Westhues' style of instruction. A valuable learning experience.
Definitely at or near the top.
Good course, great instructor. Could deviate from the information presented in the books to allow students to apply written knowledge to other aspects of life.
Thanks for offering us a rich learning experience that will be applicable to outside the classroom.
Awesome! Anyone and everyone in Canada can learn from this class.
I would have liked a little bit more lecture from the professor about the texts and course material.
Really good course overall. I would definitely recommend it for any person planning on a career in the world of business.
A very practical class.
I really enjoyed this class. It challenged me to see the other side of things.
It was different, but I enjoyed the different atmosphere that was created.
I was extremely impressed with the course as a whole. Westhues seemed to really care and get involved.
Wow, I thought I was a concise writer until I took your class. Getting to the point is something we all need practice at. Thanks.
Stimulating, fair presentation, informative.
At the beginning, it was hard to know what to expect because it is so different from other classes. After the first test, I felt more comfortable. It was more about understanding.
Discussion was relied upon too heavily. At this stage in our lives we don't have experience with all of the material covered.
