U of T life sci course selection

A photo of greentea greentea
I checked the U of T arts & science timetable online and I found that for each course, there are multiple instructors, and each instructor's name is separated by a backslash (/). For example for the CHM139H1F, it says Browning/Walker.
What does this mean exactly?
Do we get to choose which one of these instructors we want?

Also, having Browning is bad right? who is the easiest chem teacher?

In the case of course instructors, the backslash means and. So in the example you provided, half the course will be taught by browning, and the other half will be taught by walker.

The course is half-year though :O so a different prof every 2 months? lol
Just commenting but that is awkward...
Especially for the CHM138 that is in first semester, there are THREE different teachers separated by slashes. Not the best idea for the overall flow of the course imo :|

I know that but thanks.

Though honestly, if there was even a slight possibility of having an easier time with another prof, who wouldn't go in that direction? Even if it doesn't matter, it can still give people a sense of security at the very least. Helps ease their initial nerves a little.

I'm just trying to double check because a friend of a friend said Browning was hard.
