Content is fair quality. Though there could be more range in content that is politically challenging, though the same might be said for every university in this country. Overall the quality of teaching is also fair, though there could be more class debates instead of just group work. There should also be more emphasis to engage students who do not engage in seminars within the group work or discussions, as this becomes a big issue when dealing with group projects or opinionated content. The learning portals are helpful and very easy to use. read more
