Live Class Meetings
Beginning in Week 2, the instructors will offer several live discussion sessions during which you can discuss course content with your classmates. Before we schedule these live sessions, we want to hear from you! In Week 1, you will be asked to complete brief survey to tell us about your interest in and availability for live discussion sessions. We will choose times and dates that work for the majority of class participants.
