    9. Which of the assigned literature for the last two weeks do you really like (please, explain why) and which do you recommend to change (please, explain why and how)?

      A1: A1: I really like XXX article because it helps me to see different appraches to teaching, I suggest to cut YYY chapter because it was too technical (and long and boring) besides I don't think it adds much to a discussion on learning in informal settings. The other readings are OK.
    10. What do you like in the class? How do you think the class can be improved?

      A1: Thanks for the class!
      A2:.Please, cut reading and do more lecturing.
      A3: I'd like to see more reading on gender issues and more student-controlled class discussion. Other than that, the class is OK.
      A4: Can you add literature on distant learning, please?

    Thanks for your helpful feedback, I'll try to address it in my instruction. Eugene.
