Assignments

Students will have weekly readings and participate in student-led discussions in-class and online. Students will contribute as presenters, panelists and audience members.  Also each week, students will submit an individual experience report related to the course readings. Students will work in teams on a midterm and final project. 

As a rough weekly time allocation, students should dedicate 2-3 hours for reading, 1 hour for preparing or responding to discussion questions (or preparing a presentation), and 1-2 hours on experience reports. Devote additional time for the midterm and final project work. The final two weeks will be devoted to in-class testing and preparing the final presentation.

In-class Discussions
See details of discussion roles here. Presenters prepare a 5-minute overview of the reading, highlighting important themes and raising questions. Panelists also read the paper and respond to questions on Piazza before class. Audience members prepare a thought-provoking question on Piazza before class, and listen and capture key points during the panel discussion.

Experience reports
Try something, and write a Piazza post about it.
Always due Thursday before class.

Experience Reports rubric:
For your experience reports, we will allocate points as such:
 
3 pts - if your report exhibits a strong effort to describe your experience, deeply analyze the topic, and connect with materials outside of class in addition to other class materials (readings, lectures, and/or in-class discussions)
2 pts - if your report exhibits a satisfactory effort to describe your experience, analyze the topic, and connect with other class materials (readings, lectures, and/or in-class discussions)
1 pt  - if your report exhibits minimal effort, or provides only a superficial analysis of the experience 
0 pts - if you did not make a report or posted your report after the time deadline
