In my personal opinion, lectures are dense but very interesting. Idan assigns us long empirical papers to read and analyze, which are heavy with jargon. Personally, it's not really something that helped me learn the material better as a newbie with Cog Sci concepts. Unless if he were to go through the concepts and then assign those readings but instead he just goes over the concepts to apply right after we do the assignments, which I find counter productive. I also don't like how part of our grade involves being graded on how we graded other students, primarily with group projects. Beware, he also grades harshly with written content and is very picky with answers and word choice. Miss one concept and you'll go down a grade. Is very subjective with grading. Definitely has some instructor bias. The problem is for the writing assignments and final, he has high expectations but absolutely no clear way to meet them. You can have the correct answers written for his questions regarding the material but still get marked down by a lot. I can tell since after doing the assignments myself when getting grades back, I noticing huge markdowns when comparing my original worded answers to someone else's who scored much higher and had the same correct responses to the given questions. I don't know what else I can tell you. Not reasonable. Not for me. Nice guy though.
