Enjoyed the breakout rooms and the threads discussion. The threads website seems a bit slow - can berkman fix that? Having a bit of lecture from the Prof is also good, I like that he framed the discussion and started things off for us
I appreciated that we named racism at the outset and that this is a slave nation. I think the breakout room could have had more direction, and I'm not sure if individually created definitions of racism that root themselves in skin tone, accurately depicts the issue.
Very excited for the class and this was a great way to start off the virtual semester. I'm excited to get into this issue on a deeper and hopefully look at it from a somewhat more unconventional perspective. Threads also seems great though it did get a little laggy when we were all trying to post.
I appreciate your patience with us and your adeptness with the technology. You are much better with it than you gave yourself credit for. I also appreciate the use of threads in class—it helped me feel like I could respond honestly and make mistakes to learn from without the added pressure of possible judgment. I would have liked 4 minutes to write, rather than three, but I understand that might not be possible. Thank you for such a thoughtful introduction to this course.
Nesson is awesome. Really enjoyed the breakout groups. I think something worth considering is keeping groups together for some period of time. It usually takes a bit of time to break through the zoom awkwardness in a group.
Professor Nesson did a great job of making us feel comfortable! I really enjoyed my breakout room discussion. I'm also hoping we do just a little bit of background perhaps on the 6th Amendment and some doctrine, just so we have a bit of a baseline for ou broader discussions.
Enjoyed the breakout rooms - would love to have some of these conversations in the larger group as well (with the topics, not discussions, directed by the professor). Would also love some background on 6th amendment. Otherwise Nesson you're better with tech than you think!
I like the idea of the breakout room, and I think it has a lot of potential, but most of the people did not seem very interested in participating. More direction as to what we might want to discuss in the breakout rooms would be helpful, and maybe some incentive to participate. Thank you for a great class.
