Hoch, Hannah
[PSYC BC1105] Psychology of Learning (w/ or w/o lab)

Please keep in mind that this review is more than 5 years old.

I had Professor Hoch for Psychology of Learning, and I loved her. The tests are extremely fair, and the workload is not overwhelming. Her experience with autistic children really brings the material to life (she uses videos in class), and I enjoyed this aspect especially. You can do well in the class without going to lectures. However, I looked forward to lectures as she supplemented the material with antecdotes, videos, and real life experiences; this REALLY helped on exams. She is always enthusiastic and available to her students, whom she truly cares about and wants to do well. The only way anyone could hate this class is if they are bored by the subject. Hoch is a fantastic professor.

Workload:

multiple choice exams are extremely fair; opportinity for extra credit. she gives a+'s if you deserve one.
