Please note, this is a new course outline available for your download. There are a couple of changes to our timetable, most notably that a week Friday, there will be a lab day so you can work on your video project and I will be giving a talk at the campus opening and not available to teach. Also of note, the distribution of grades has changed. What remains the same is your course work which is worth 70%. Each day, except the last day is counts as 5% towards your course work total. Those people who didn’t email me their websites have lost 5% already. Participation is worth 20% and every time you are late, late back from break or talking while I am talking or speaking in another language, there will be 1 point deducted, starting tomorrow (the English-only policy is a campus policy, but the rest are my own). Those people who participate well during class, i.e. volunteer answers and discussions, and generally seem to engage with the material, will gain points.
