I completely agree with the other review but I didn't think the class warranted 2.0! I personally found it super interesting but yes the workload was a bit way too much and requirements were pretty inconsistent.

Geography 5 is an interesting and fairly easy GE in terms of content and structure. However, I had a very negative experience taking it in Winter Quarter, 2021. Although Professor Robinson was the professor, all prerecorded lectures (made in winter 2020) were done by Professor Cavanaugh. Professor Robinson structured the workload and distribution of material, I believe.
The workload was VERY heavy for a GE and the requirements were very unclear and inconsistent. Professor Robinson was not accomodating towards any conditions that may prevent someone from completing their assignments (no late work tolerated- internet issues are not an excuse), which I find is very classist/ableist especially during a pandemic. My TA was accomodating, however.
Professor Robinson was very open to questions but replied in a seemingly passive-aggressive and rude tone. Since assignments were, again, inconsistent and unclear, students had very reasonable questions but the Professor's responses were accusatory and chastising. This made me wary of asking any questions necessary for completing the work. This was a general consensus among students.
