Professor David Ortiz Reviews
Prof: David Ortiz / Summer 2021
Oct 19, 2021
The course is fairly straightforward with only 4 assignments and the 4th assignment is the only full essay. Every assignment builds off the one from before, skill-wise, so the workload is very light.
The course content was decently interesting I'm not going to lie, it makes you think about really basic concepts, like debates in what constitutes knowledge understanding, which I enjoy. I don't see myself using the course later on in my career but nonetheless, I don't regret taking it.
The professor is kind of dry, if you crack a couple of jokes he'll laugh but the class atmosphere is pretty dull. He is a very strict grader, it's rare he gives out 100s.
Attendance and participation are all up to you. Staying home won't help you, he has a very specific writing style that I have never encountered in any of my classes and they are not posted in Canvas (only the reading material is). Show up, take notes, and drop into office hours.
