Expectations and Basic Policies

My basic policies all exist so that you can give yourself a chance to learn but also so you can give yourself some space to take care of the rest of your life.

Main policy: If you are sick, please rest!

This semester is going to be an experiment in flexibility. We’re nowhere near out of the crisis that COVID-19 has set in motion, and though you may have settled into something like a rhythm, things could change at any moment. Anxiety and exhaustion, mentally and physically, are ever-present realities.

With that in mind, here are my main expectations:

Discussion Norms

  1. Leave room for connectivity issues (have patience!)
  2. Raise hands or signal that you want to talk.
  3. Assume best intentions while people are talking.
  4. Include icebreakers and ways to be more comfortable together and feel more open with each other. Take time to get to know each other.
  5. Support each other with chat and other functions to provide feedback.
