Prof. Yiannis Aloimonos teaches us “How to Conduct Research” in this class. Some reviews from OurUMD.com:
Dr. Aloimonos is a great guy, good teacher, and interesting to listen to in lecture. Like some of the other reviews said, he covers the material really quickly and perhaps not in as much detail as they should be, but if you do the worksheets in discussion and/or study, you’ll be fine. His lectures are good to go to because he covers a lot of stuff that other professors don’t, and talks about philosophy and stuff sometimes (its always somewhat relevant though).
He knows a lot, but if you don’t want to study and don’t already know some of the material, then maybe someone else would be better.
He is a great professor and a teacher. I mean he may not cover the subject material in any detail (u HAVE to read book to get stuff and practice for this class). But it is a fun class with him coz’ he brings in so many higher level fun topics into the discussion. he is very knowledgeable and funny.
He is a nice person.
No one gets a B in that class, I think. Anyway, it’s 1 credit and mandatory.
One paper summary and one research proposal.
