As a participant in this course, you will be expected to:


  1. Read the assigned articles and chapters to get a handle on the issues of the day.

  2. Participate in the face-to-face Session 2.
  3. Participate in discussions by a) posting comments and responding to the posts of others on the Discussion Boards and b) sharing your thoughts and questions during the face-to-face Session. As you do so, please remember to interact with your peers in a respectful manner. Here are some things to keep in mind:

    • Seek first to understand, then to be understood.

    • Don't take it personally if someone disagrees with your point of view. Stick to the issues.

    • Speak for yourself, not for others.

  4. Maintain your own reflection journal for responding to prompts at the end of each lesson.

  5. Try the math problems used as examples (there are no tests!).

  6. Complete the final evaluation at the end of the course.

  7. Enjoy the experience!
