Course Schedule

Note: The usual weekly schedule for this course is as follows:
Friday night before: unit and weekly introductory videos published. Any other weekly material marked TBA posted. View intro videos before you do the readings.
Tuesday: Discussion leaders post discussion posts about the readings on the student blog
Thursday: Everyone else posts responses on the student blog
Friday: Dr. S. will post a summary video. On some Fridays, “Labs and Building Blocks” assignments are due.

Links to assignments and videos typically will be posted the Friday night prior to the week listed on the syllabus. If you don’t see a link, then I haven’t updated the syllabus yet — hang tight until Friday night.

All students should do the assignments listed, except for anything under an “Additional Assignments” bullet point. “Additional Assignments” are optional for undergraduates and required for graduate students.

You can do any of the work for this class before the due dates as long as all the links are posted and you’ve done the prep work (for example, doing ALL weekly readings, websites, & videos before posting to the private student blog).

Assignments may change or shift depending on class needs. Check back here each week for the most up-to-date schedule.
