Student learning goals
General method of instruction
A variety of media will be used in instruction. These will include lecture, film, presentations, guest speakers, and interactive activities.
This course will have numerous Teaching Assistants (TAs) to supplement course materials with small group discussion.
As an introductory seminar, there is little in the way of "preparation" that would be required. Students should be ready to engage in active learning and discussion, as well as have fun!
Class assignments and grading
Grading for the class will be credit/no credit, with minimal assignments.
Attendance of all classes is required in order to earn credit, as are participation in class and completion of assignments.
Students are expected to come to class on time; arriving to class late will result in additional assignments.
