Class Format:

All activities, including assessment for this course will be completely online. The weekly lectures for this course will be recorded and made available asynchronously. We will also have weekly problem-solving sessions in collaborative groups during the scheduled class time that require synchronous participation.

Testing for this course will be asynchronous, and will consist of short answer and essay questions that will be submitted via Canvas during a designated time frame.

This course will use Canvas for all asynchronous online components, announcements, and for posting other resources. Synchronous meetings with the instructor (office hours) will be conducted through Zoom. Students should have access to a camera and microphone.

The instructor will make every effort to provide reasonable accommodation for unpredictable circumstances during this course, including but not limited to, loss of reliable Internet access/other technical difficulties and the need to care for yourself and/or a family member, neighbor, and friend during the pandemic. Accommodation will most likely take the form of granting short-term extensions on assignments or modifying the method of submission as is appropriate.
