My courses, including MBA Pricing Strategy and Introductory Social Psychology, have been highly rated by my students. In 2016, I was the single recipient of the Outstanding Graduate Associate Teaching Award at Ohio State, the result of a semester-long process that included student-led nomination and voting, an interview about my teaching philosophy, and classroom observation.
Below are some of the things my students have said about my courses, as well as a brief summary of the courses I have taught.
"Hands down the best instructor I've had for any class, any subject, at any college I've attended."
"Prof. Durso is a very caring and conscientious instructor. He is always available and highly responsive to questions, and it's obvious that he's truly invested in the learning and success of his students. He also regularly solicits feedback and actively tries to adjust the content and format of the class to make it more relevant and engaging based on student input."
"Teachings are practical. Lectures have clearly been tailored for a business audience. Very much appreciate the lack of academic filler material. I think I learned a lot in this course."
"Geoff was an excellent teacher who really cared for his students. He was always available for help and did a great job in assisting us to help us learn. I felt very comfortable to ask him for help with anything, even in writing for a different course."
"Geoff creates an atmosphere where it is very safe and comfortable to speak your mind and ask questions. I also enjoyed my group work and the fresh cases."
"Geoff is awesome! Very approachable and easy to talk to. He does a great job at teaching the material in a way that is understandable. He is also very energetic and excited to teach."
"Amazing class, incredible teacher."
"Such a helpful instructor. Loved his style of teaching."
"Professor Durso was an above and beyond professor. Professor Durso returned emails in a prompt manner as well as offered various office hours for one-on-one attention. Professor Durso always lend a helping hand and provided the class with interesting facts as well as use of the technology in the class room. Professor Durso is one of the best professor's I have had while studying at The Ohio State University."
