Course Evaluation Comments
As comments from my course evaluations demonstrate, I put my research into action by creating a psychologically safe classroom environment and encouraging voice in the classroom.

  • Nicole was incredibly organized, thoughtful, and engaging. I looked forward to attending her lectures, and would take another class with her if she were teaching a next level of the course.
  • I think she was the best instructor [out of the 3 co-instructors] in moderating the classroom discussions and answering our questions.
  • She created an open intellectual environment, where we all could debate and ask for more detail on concepts. Nicole was super responsive and really made you feel like your comments were being heard. She was always available to talk further and made this option feel very welcome.
  • Nicole is a master communicator and explained topics in such a way that they were easily comprehended. She fostered lively discussion during each class period she led. Feedback on assignments was extremely fast and specific.
  • She really engages the students well, especially in an online format. To the point about fairness, she was great at getting class participation and not allowing the more outspoken members to “hog the mic.” I think this is especially important because we want to hear what our peers think. Additionally, she brought in some great use cases and interesting studies to lectures.
  • Nicole has a great presentation pace that keeps you engaged in difficult topics and works well over zoom. She facilitated a comfortable environment that opened the floor for natural discussion and questions from my peers. I found her topics to be the most interesting.
