This course is being offered in a hybrid format. Classes on January 24 and March 14 in particular, will be in-person (students who receive exemptions ahead of time from the instructor will receive access to a live-streaming option). On other evenings, classes will be online via Zoom. Class recordings will be provided for only a limited time to your class only.
Students are strongly encouraged to turn on their videos for Zoom classes. Students who do not wish to turn on their videos will be excluded from break-out group discussions (as members in small group discussions respectfully need to be able to communicate face-to-face with each other). Instead, these students will be sent to a “non-participating group,” where they will wait for the class to be brought back. As break-out group discussions constitute a vital part of course participation, this will impact Credit Students’ grades.
