The course WAS interesting. Particularly with previous iterations of it, or those courses offered by Jeff Kroeker. The course content and cases are also interesting. However, taking it with Jocelyn is a bit difficult and there are several inconsistencies. Firstly, we are taught to mark up the cases, whether by printing the case package on paper and marking it up with pen/highlighter, or downloading it on our iPads and marking it up there. Her exams are on Canvas, and her cases are way too long to comprehend and read for the time given on the midterm. Next, her Canvas page, slides, case package, and course notes are FILLED with typos.

Jocelyn makes it appear like she cares about student feedback, by having an open feedback form throughout the semester, as well as an early informal feedback (separate from the early feedback collected by Sauder). However, she takes these responses, compiles them into a summary and shows it in the next lecture, yet spends 10-15 minutes going over the feedback and reasons why she can't enact any of it. She also does not proofread her case packages, exam questions, and quizzes, nor does she take the time to update/correct/upend any mistakes, even when brought to her attention.
Take it with Jeff Kroeker.

Good course. A decent amount of work is required, but you will be rewarded for consistently putting in effort.
Learn the class problems, participate frequently, and try the problems before class.
