Feedback from Former Students (2022)

  • That I really enjoyed her class. It was unique and engaging. I never dreaded doing an assignment which is extremely rare for me, so thank you!

  • You are great professor. I really enjoyed your class and learned a lot.

  • You have a very efficient set up, and are an amazing instructor that has provided SO MANY great resources/links/tools. Thanks for a great course!

  • Thank you for challenging me. This was something that I never thought I would have interest in, let alone how to incorporate it into my classroom. I am able to change that, and not be so scared in how I go about posting things. It can be positive! In addition, I truly liked the blogs and this was a new for me. I would love to continue that in my profession and my journey as a mom in the future after I graduate.

  • You gave good constructive feedback. I always appreciate feedback that is useful and not given in a negative manner. Thank you! I found this class to be one that provided information that can be used in both my professional and personal life.

  • Thank you for being an excellent professor. You helped me come out from my comfort zone.

  • Thanks so much for all of your efforts and responsiveness!

  • This course really challenged me to think outside of the box, and try out new things. Thank you.

  • Now, as this is my last course at Dominican, I can say that your courses were the best among 10 courses I took. They are engaging, fun, relevant! Not just plain text reading! I've learned many new skills (PLN, creating website or google form, blogging just to name a few). I know I have not mastered them, as it takes practice, but I had a great jumpstart! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! You are a wonderful educator! Wishing you all the best!

  • Thanks for putting so much work into this course! It was really well done! I learned a lot and will use these resources in the future.

  • I appreciate the energy that you brought to your introductory videos each week! I also appreciate your quick turnaround time with grading assignments and the feedback you gave both on our blogs and other assignments submitted. This class pushed me outside of my comfort zone and I am glad that I tried my best to immerse myself in this new learning experience!

  • I loved this class! Thank you!

  • Thank you so much for a great learning experience!

  • This was such an interesting course and I learned so much. I picked up so many new tools, tips, and knowledge that will definitely help me with remote learning in the fall. I have already shared so much of the tips we learned with my colleagues, and I loved that the different projects we created could even be used in our own classrooms.

  • Thanks for being a great online professor. I'd love to attend any in person classes/workshops/trainings that you lead.

  • It was great, and you communicated very well! Thank you so much!

  • Honestly a GREAT course.

  • Nicole, you had great interactions and feedback (Both positive and constructive). I really enjoyed being able to see feedback on my work but also take away feedback you shared with others. Thank you for a great class!

  • Thank you for a great course!

  • Thank you for making this online course clear and easy to follow. I will be saving all of the resources to further my career!
