This is a project where much will be done online, sometimes in your group, sometimes individually. The class will gather every Monday afternoon. These on‐ and offline meetings give you a chance to hook up with the tutor for coaching, discuss learnings about the course and about Team work and to work on the week’s assignment. Probably the class should be 3‐4,5 hour and will involve a synchronous on‐line lecture and discussion with Nancy White, coming to us from Seattle via Google Hangout.
Because we work together in groups, we expect everyone’s attendance and participation. Missing more than 2 workshops and/or meetings with your tutor will result in a lower grade. Inefficient participation could lead to being kicked out of your group. Your tutor will discuss this with you.
