Below are comments written by my students from courses where I was the instructor-of-record. The following comments are representative of those received, and are available on my website.

“Professor Henin was very passionate about the topics he presented in class. Having someone that passionate about a subject made it easy and entertaining to learn.”

“He was very energetic! I learned a lot even when class started at 8:30am.”

“Thibaud is very enthusiastic and has engaging lectures that are very enjoyable! He is very available for questions and allows for questions before weekly quizzes."

 

"Thibaud was extremely interested in the advancement of his students, past what they (myself included) may believe they are capable of. He would reach out to students for make-up work and other things even when no contact was the student was received. I can really tell that he is passionate about the topic he is teaching.”

“I think his lectures were interesting and engaging, and slides were organized. He is a good public speaker and seems knowledgeable regarding the topic of environmental policy. He took the time to address everyone’s questions and concerns, and was very motivated to do whatever he could to improve the class during the term. There was a variety of assignments, in order to engage all different types of learning. It was nice to see a professor ask for constructive criticism throughout the term, because it reflects his concern that students get the most out of the class."

“Thibaud is incredibly passionate about the subject and does a great job of explaining the topics. He also was very understanding when I fell behind in the course and he helped me stay on track”

“Super engaging teacher, always felt an urge to be involved in the conversation, which is saying a lot coming from an extremely introverted person.”

“Thibaud is an excellent instructor. His strengths include a true passion for the subject is teaching as well as his breadth of knowledge. I very much enjoyed how he conveys concepts and ideas without seeming overly biased towards one viewpoint. I have had many different teachers at the University of Oregon and I would put him up with some of my favorites. I really felt like my time was well spent in his class and learned a tremendous amount in a very short amount of time. I really liked how he was constantly adjusting or tweaking his class to try to make it better for the group of students he is teaching. I would highly recommend him to a colleague.”

"Thibaud is a very engaging instructor. I like how he encouraged discussion and sharing of opinions and perspectives. I thought the course was organized in such a way that enabled students to build upon what they learned in earlier weeks. While some emphasis was placed on remembering specific facts, I appreciated that it was more important to understand and relate concepts. Overall, a great class for anybody with a passing interest in the subject matter or looking for a good foundational course to build upon."
