This is really the schedule / list of topics / list of assignments. It’s what I think of as the Syllabus (but the University has a different idea).

What happens in class meetings is subject to change, however, you can expect that (unless there is an extreme event), when classes occur will be the same. You can use this to see when classes are cancelled, and when they are optional. (remember, the class is overscheduled – we’ll meet for approximately 30 75 minute meetings)

As this work in progress progresses, it will include links to the assignments as well.

Generally, every week there will be

  • 2 class meetings – sometimes there may be 0,1 or 3. And sometimes these are optional. Remember, it is required to attend class when there is a (non-optional) class.
  • Readings to do
  • An online discussion – usually connected to the readings, with the first posting due on Tuesday
  • A seek and find – due on Friday
  • Some part of a design challenge
