I love Mr Baigent! He is probably the most articulate person I have ever met. He does have an old-school, professorial vibe, but nowadays that's actually quite refreshing. I think he's brilliant and I wish I had him at uni.

He was a very good teacher. HE taught me well in History but it's that flaw where he speaks in a constant monotone and says each word at exactly 1 seond after the next which can get quite boring

Great teacher but may needs to use more multimedia as when he reads over a long time it can get very boring.

Probably the most interesting teacher I have ever had. Any success I have at tertiary level history is primarily owed to his teaching. I couldnt care less that hes not excessively dramatic when he teaches.. thats refreshing and unpatronising.. hes old school.. and I like that.

he is probably the most knowledgable teacher I have ever encountered. I owe any success I achieve at tertiary level history to his teaching, and passion for his subject. Who gives a toss if hes not excessively dramatic when he teaches.. take drama you fags.. history is about the content and the skil

Cannot stand him, speaks in monotone and lessons aren't inspiring or invigorating which ends up in students getting really bored.

Hes a great teacher. Hes not there to make friends or fool around, hes there to teach. He gives crystal clear notes and you can learn a lot if you can the fight the sedative in his voice.

This teacher speaks far too slowly and doesn't look at students to get their attention, just stares at the back of the wall.

Not a bad teacher, in fact I learn a lot in his classes but he lectures in monotone and speaks far too formally to reach the youth of today. Looks up at the walls at the back of the class when talking
