<p>I teach this class in an interactive and hands on format. If you have a laptop, please bring it to class every day. If you do not have a laptop, you will be able to check out a Chromebook from me for use during the class period, but you cannot take it home with you.</p>
<p>In my experience, iPad and Android tablet devices do not work well for what we are doing. A Microsoft surface tablet should be totally fine. Everything we are doing will be web-based. For this class, it does not make a difference if you have a Windows/Linux/Mac/Chrome OS computer.</p>

For this class, it does not make a difference what kind of laptop you have. Everything we are doing will be web-based. But, I would recommend any Mac, Linux, or Windows device over a Chromebook.</p>

<p>This class involves primarily individual assignments. Below is a brief sketch of the assignments we will complete. More detailed assignment guidelines will be provided later in the quarter.</p>
<p><strong>Attendance &amp; Participation</strong> This class is taught in an interactive format. There will be no lectures. At each meeting, you will be asked to evaluate your own participation in that day&rsquo;s activities on a small exit slip. Please make sure you turn this in before leaving the classroom! <em>(Note: It should go without saying, but filling out a participation worksheet for another student (or lying about your own participation) is considered a form of academic misconduct.)</em></p>

<p><strong><em>Please contact me</em></strong> in the case of any exceptional or unpredictable event
that significantly impacts your ability to complete work or attend class
— such as an illness, a sick child that cannot attend school or daycare,
a family emergency, iced over roads, etc. I reserve the right to request
documentation before granting any extensions, but they are occasionally
possible given extenuating circumstances beyond your control.</p>
<p>Please note that <em>traffic, TriMet delays, bridge lifts, regular work
schedules, and personal travel are not considered exceptional or
unpredictable events</em>. Please warn your family and friends in advance (i.e.
today) that they need to consult you regarding any future travel plans
made on your behalf (e.g., weddings, bachelorette parties, cruises,
etc.). If you choose to prioritize one of these events over your class time,
that is perfectly fine. You are an adult and can make your own decisions.
However, you understand that you forfeit any in-class assignments we complete
during your departure.</p>

<p>As you may have noticed there is no D2L shell for this course. We will be trying out Google Classroom instead, with the hope that it will be a much easier place to turn in assignments, ask questions about course content, etc. As this is a bit of an experiment, I would appreciate any feedback you have about the Google Classroom environment throughout the term.</p>
<p>As this is a new environment for most of us, we will have to work together through the year to figure out best practices for using this new tool. However, I am hopeful that it will be easier to navigate and use than D2L!</p>
<p>Please try to ask course-related questions on the Google Classroom page before emailing me. This way everyone can benefit from the answer &ndash; and your peers may be faster at answering than myself :)</p>
