Reviewed by Anonymous on 7/17/2019
1. Class needed to be 30 minutes longer, especially with there being total beginners. Initially a good amount of time was spent answering questions, thus it is important to allow enough time to answer all. Subsequently, the syllabus was left to the end and less time to cover in depth. 2. Another option is to just create an intermediate level for people with festival experience versus total beginners. But ideally just extend the time by15-30mins to help. Or the last option is to just remove the short instructor film video shown & discussion, as this will help save time for student questions. 3. Insert instructor name with final email confirmation. 4. Add a way for students to contact each other after class for networking. Thanks
