I had him for psychology of human development. he talks in a monotone voice that is so boring after 3 hours and his tests are really close to the text book but are still pretty hard. we didn't do any classwork or assignments, just three tests that we were graded on. he also never posted our marks so we never knew how we were doing in the class.
He is a really boring teacher, its a shame he teaches psychology. His class is not diffcult, the tests and essay are fairly easy but he reads everything straight from the book. I would not take him.
great teacher! just make sure u study what he says and read the book, youll do great. he has alot of experience and knows his stuff very well. he is also very approachable and makes sure u do great.
I think he's a good teacher . He makes psychology easy to understand and if you attend class and pay attention aswell as read over the chapters you can pass his class .
He's good but he doesn't really pay attention to his students and he's not very up to date with technology....
doesnt take attendence so dont even bother going to lectures just read the chapter a few days before the test and your good
Adorable and funny. Slow talker, but makes for a relaxing lecture. Would definitely recommend him!
Don't bother attending lectures. For Nursing students, read the book and do the Pearson practice questions online. You can tell he's a softy... Don't freak out if you're failing. He'll help you out.
Psychology of human dev: READ THE BOOK! His exams are multiple choice questions but they're tricky. Nice man though, if u fail with a mark within the 50s he'll still pass you.
Take lots and lots of notes. Nothing comes from the book. The questions on exams often aren't covered before hand
The exams are not even about what he says in class, he had to increase our marks for EVERY exam because the class average was so low, he talks low, the course doesnt have any structure, but theres no homework only one project
not an easy class. It is boring, he is.. special... Test are VERY HARD compared to what you do in class. never gives homework, so its not easy to get a high mark if you do not do well on text and the only paper we have to write
LOVED his class, he makes funny random jokes, class is very easy aslong as you take NOTES ( a lot of notes) and read the book, I finished with an 80, and I found child psych really interesting.
Nice guy but his tests are a little tough. He sometimes forgets what he taught last class and ends up doing it again and the schedule of topics he provides at the start of the semester isn't always followed.
Good teacher ( had him for nursing psych) but his classes are long and mostly consist of him reading you notes for you to copy but overall a good teacher
very good teacher will try and do everything to make you pass, but some of his questions on the test weren't even in his lectures or the book, but if you read the book and listen in class you'll do good!!!
Good teacher, a little slow and forgets which class he tought and makes you retake the same notes, other than that he explains well but his tests are tricky.
The class material is very interesting (social psych.) This teacher knows what he is doing, but the three hour class may end up putting you to sleep. His multiple choice tests are a bit difficult (not much). Good teacher!
He's speaking abit difficult to understand but I did learn something from this class. He is very good teacher. He does know what he is doing.
Very interesting and easy class but extremely boring.
I really liked him, he doesnt take attendance but if you go to class and listen you will do well. I listened, never read the book, and got over 80. He is really funny, his voice is a little boring, but a good teacher!
If you listen in class and study a bit for his tests, his class is easy.
I had Dr. spence back in 88 and absolutely loved his classes. He is not the most "animated" teacher, but his dry humour was nice and as long as you read the material you passed.
he kinows whats hes talking about! hes so passionate too! i loved him! tests are very hard but i learned something in this class.. more than in any oher class
Nice man but he is not a very good teacher is exam are not at all based on his lectures he gave us an exam and there were things in that exam that we had never covered in class. The classes are long and boring it's very hard to stay focused I am happy that this semester is over bye bye Dr. Spence.
Exams were not at all based on the lectures, you are expected to memorize every single little detail in the chapters. Funny and nice guy, but not a good teacher. Classes are very long and boring, he has a very monotone voice.
looooooooooooooooooong classes and lectures, especially in that attic classroom until 5:30pm. read the chapters and review class notes(if you didnt fall asleep) and you'll be fine
This teacher is really easy. His classes are extremly boring and u cant help but start to doze off, however his teasts are super easy, read the long boring chapters and the tests are not a problem.
he is one of the most intelligent teachers at abbott.Extremly interesting and has amazing stories. Only one assignmnet, and 3 tests, good movies. Amazing Class
Really good teacher, just sometimes his voice can drone on and make you sleepy especially in child dev class!
i have to say that this teacher is very good. he makes jokes that come out of nowhere and you just cant help to laugh. his exams are EASY! read da book n ur SET
Exams weren't relevant to notes given in class, had to read entire chapters in the book and know it BY HEART. Funny guy, not a great teacher. Class long+boring
Dr.Spence is hilarious! His classes are pretty interesting, and if you show some sort of interest and are curtious, he will adore you!
he's cool but it's impossible to not fall asleep in his class... just a bit to dark and boring but still an easy teacher if you read the book.
Great guy to have teach child psych. Can make a hard subject entertaining. Knows how to entertain while he teaches
wt can i say... ur sitting until 5h30 for 3 hours in this attic with no light. class is boring, and had no breaks. try not to get him.
really good teacher, the lectures can get long, doesn`t take attendance, give exam question before the exam so you can study every thing that on the exam.
