The instructor is excellent, and her enthusiasm for the subject is inspiring. I enjoyed the course very much , but it was almost too much material to squeeze into 3 sessions. It would be very helpful to have some summary materials before the course begins so that the presentations might be absorbed more quickly and with more understanding.
Kristin’s knowledge and enthusiasm brought a tough read alive.

Dr. Stasiowski is very knowledgeable about her subject, and her presentation skills are excellent. Her enthusiasm is contagious. So it is very pleasurable to attend her course.
Dante’s Divine Comedy is a very complex subject. However, Dr. Stasiowski’s presentations were a very helpful intro to the subject for me. Considering that the whole course’s duration was only 4.5 hours, I still have enough of a direction to now dig deeper into The Divine Comedy, which is what I was looking for.
If the point of Pedagogy is to encourage a lifetime of learning and spur curiosity then this course should be its template. The breadth of knowledge presented awakens the mind and soul alike, taking you on a journey far wider in scope and beyond the specific topic at hand. When you finish a course and see the world through an entire different lens, observe things that were previously unobservable, well then to say the course was a success would be to call Leonardo a painter.
Dr. Stasiowski presented a 13th century Italian poet as contemporary and his relevance tangible. Our struggles and fears are not new and our hope remains eternal. Bravo! Bravo!
