If you consider enrolling in a subject, it is important to know how a lecturer is rated. Do your peers find the subject well taught and motivating to learn? I pride myself on good if not excellent student ratings, and am keen to keep it that way. That means going the extra mile, by sharing updates before the course, availability during lecturing days and assisting with queries afterwards.
