CLASS STRUCTURE

While this is an online class, it is not totally self-paced. We will go through the material together, with weekly readings, assignments, and online discussions. (You can do the work anytime during the week.)

All other activities are online only. The purposes of this class meeting are to get acquainted, review all course requirements, get hands-on experience with the online course environment you'll be using, and complete your initial assignments.
