A dry course but the information is easily understood and the power points show the most relevant data though they could be shortened somewhat for clarity.

The presentation was very vanilla and boring. More real life examples would give better grasp of real world ethics applications

Presenter was very dull. Would be better if he provided some examples or additional comments vs. just reading the text to us.

A little boring. Instructor could have included some examples and enthusiasm instead of just reading from the slides.

Presenter was a bit on the monotone side. Would like to have some "spice" in the presentation
