- The professor seemed approachable, and interested in adults with real lives doing well in his course
- He practically guaranteed that if we work hard we will do well
- There is extra credit
- Class/teaching technology seems not to have changed much since I was last in a class
- Not everyone was taking notes on a laptop, which I thought would be happening
and, things I had less positive thoughts about:
- There were about 130 students in the class - that's more people than I like to be around
- More students means more people wasting time and saying stupid/repetitive stuff
- The seats are in rows of 5 that are attached together and the guy next to me was fidgeting the entire two hours which made me vibrate for two hours
- The "desks" were those tiny attached ones that are only on the right side and I am a lefty so I was uncomfortably stretched the whole time
The good thing is that with a few minor adjustments (always sit on the far left of a row of people who don't seem like fidgeters), I think I can solve some of those issues. I'm not looking forward to the fact that I have twelve more two hour sessions, but I do expect to learn a lot and that should help me be better at the financial planning stuff I do at work. So. Adult education! WOO. HOO.
