In the Fall of 2021, the highlight of my semester was my Biology 251 class I took as an introductory course to ecology and other macro-biological concepts at the Honors level. The course itself was well supported, collaborative, and instruction bolstered good understanding of the information required.
My relationship with my professor was golden, allowing for inside humor and an open understanding of my own comprehension as well as the potential criticisms and shortcomings that may have been present in the course (of which there were none, but it was nice knowing that we could be open enough to talk about those issues).
Overall, the biggest challenge in this class would have been the in-person research day presentation. Although this would have been a requirement in other classes previously, COVID-19 requirements left me unconfident in my in-person presenting skills. Thankfully, I wasn’t overdressed, and was reassured I presented well. The powerpoint from that presentation, as well as an example of literature written in that course has been embedded below.
