2021.10.25 11:39 imalwaysalittletired I'm a professor who doesn't use textbooks or give exams. From the student perspective, is this a good thing or a bad thing?

I find that textbooks are boring, usually outdated, and always expensive, so I either hand out articles or assign videos to watch.
I don't give exams because I feel like rote memorization is outdated and I would rather my students come to class and listen/enjoy the lecture, and soak up info that way, rather than just trying to memorize things for memorization's sake. In lieu of tests, my students do projects, papers, etc.
I know that this method pleases many students, because they tell me, but I can also see it leaving some students nervous without the "anchor" of a textbook or the relative predictability of a series of exams. I do put some recommended book titles in the syllabus, but only if the student wants to read them.
For reference, I teach business courses and I generally do not have non-majors in my classes.
As a student, what do you think?
