Lectures are supplemented by weekly, 90-minute sections led by the teaching fellows. Different sections are offered for those less comfortable, those more comfortable, and those somewhere in between, demand permitting.
Attendance at sections (at least one section for each of Weeks 1 through 10) is expected.
The course treats Zoom just like a classroom. For any meeting that you attend, be sure to:
- Participate from a quiet space (and not from a bed, car, hammock, plane, or train), where can you listen and speak. If you participate from a more public space, just be sure you won’t be approached or disturbed by others while there.
- Be sure to participate with your camera turned on, using horizontal (not vertical) video, unless your circumstances don’t permit.
If unable to accommodate these norms for some meeting, please watch the recording (if any) thereof. And please forgive if the staff ask you to log out so that all attendees are those fully engaged!
All sections are held online via Zoom. Per the syllabus, you are expected to attend sections live, one per week. A calendar of sections will appear below once section times have been established.
Sections have no limit and you can attend any one you’d like in a given week, but we grab via an API your name and email attached to your Zoom account when you sign into the meeting for attendance so be certain that you can be properly and uniquely identified, if you want credit for attending the section! (You are free to switch to a pseudonym, if you wish, during the section meeting itself!) One section per set will be posted after the fact for later review. Watching a recording of a section does not substitute for the section attendance requirement in the course’s syllabus.
The calendar below should be shown in your local time zone, you can confirm this by checking the calendar’s footer!
