This asynchronous class is designed to be highly interactive. Students will always have at least 24 hours to complete their tasks, in order to accommodate for time zone differences and other scheduling issues. Twice a week (Monday and Wednesday), I will post a package of recorded lectures, exercises, debate questions, and other activities that students will be required to complete by the end of the following day (Tuesday and Thursday). Office hours will be held over Zoom.
