Dr. Kim-Farley really, really cares about this class, his students, and the field. His passion is easily apparent, and I really appreciated that he was very intentional about getting to know his students and what helped/didn't help them. He was very welcoming during office hours, encourages student participation, both during and after class. I liked that we spent a solid .5-1hr every class just talking about COVID-19 from a public health lens. He offers interesting personal anecdotes working for the CDC and WHO and shares information about how to be happy.

The course was very straight-to-the-point. Do all the readings from the textbook and follow all the directions for the editorial (approx 500 words) and 3-4 minute student presentation. Participation was mandatory (REEF questions). The midterm and final were both multiple choice, and pretty much based on surface knowledge of the textbook (ie vocabulary). They were very easy questions if you studied key words. My only complaint about this class is that you can pretty much not pay attention during lecture and still get an A because we did not talk about the textbook at all during lecture. Lecture was reserved for student discussion, which I appreciated, but it still felt largely disconnected from the readings.

Highly recommend! Great class and even better prof.

Dr. Kim-Farley is an amazing Professor! He is so kind and always willing to help. He takes the time to explain the underlying concepts whenever you need help! This is the first time that this course has been taught, but I think that he did a really great job. I liked the flipped classroom because we were able to take the time during class to have really interesting discussions, and Dr. Kim-Farley shared some of the unique experiences he has had over his career. Definitely recommend!

Dr. Kim-Farley is a cool professor and cares about student learning. This class is flipped classroom though, but you can easily find the textbook pdf online, no need to buy the book. Your grade is based on a midterm, final, participation, a short presentation, and opinion editorial--all relatively easy. Attendance is mandatory, but clickers are only based on participation. The midterm and final were fair, as long as you read the textbook and pay attention to the clickers and quizzes on the textbook site you'll easily get an A.
