Course Meeting Day, Time, and Electronically-mediated Class Participation
This course meets on Mondays from 1:00 pm to 3:45 pm in room 532 of Gorgas Library. There will be one 15 minute break approximately 90 minutes into the class period. See Course Calendar for course meeting dates.
I would also like to bring your attention to the electronically-mediated participatory aspects of this class:
- Online Discussion: Click the "Online Discussion" link on the left Nav Bar to see the course discussion boards organized by lecture. This technique will allow you to publicly discuss questions and issues during the week that may have arisen in class with your fellow classmates and me. (I you would prefer private communication, please click the "Course E-mail" link).
- del.icio.us Boomarks: If you find resources on the web that you would like to bring to the attention of class members, you can create a del.icio.us bookmark and by tagging it appropriately, it will be available in the right context. For more information on this technique, see the Course Calendar.
And best of all, employing either (or both) of these electronically-mediated techniques during the semester will improve your class participation grade!
