How this class works

This class (or course, if you will) works this way. First, you read or watch the assigned material before the class and make sure that you understand it. I will indicate the nominal time it should take to go over the class material offline. This is an average time that an average college-educated student should take. Depending on the person, the actual time may vary somewhat. That’s the homework portion of this class.

The online sessions will be audio only. When needed, I will have slides that I will share from my desktop. During the online session, which will be exactly for an hour, starting precisely on the hour, we will review the assigned material briefly for about the first 30 minutes or so.

For the rest of the hour we will discuss the topics introduced, and address all questions. This is the interactive portion of the online engagement. It is going to be a small group — about two dozen at most — and so we will be able to entertain all questions.

All subsequent discussions relating to the online hour will be on this blog in the comments to posts titled “Discussions on Session #x” which will be posted on Saturdays.

I expect that the audio of the online sessions will be recorded and available in the archives. Please note that at the top of the right hand column of this blog has a button marked “Follow.” By following this blog via email, you will get push notification of all posts in your inbox. I will avoid sending out email notifications.

If you have any questions or concerns, please use the comment section of this post. Also remember to download zoom on your computer, laptop, phone, etc.

  1. Eagerly waiting for this class.
    However, I will not be able to attend the first class because I’m travelling at that time.
    I will read all the materials and will watch the recording of it.
