The class portion of this course will be conducted online, and the lab portion of the course will be hybrid. Class consists of synchronous class meetings, and asynchronous videos, activities, discussions, virtual help sessions, and peer collaborations. Synchronous sessions will occur during the scheduled times, with those sessions recorded for asynchronous viewing. The professor will provide equitable opportunities for each student to engage with the material, the professor, and each other, based on each student's individual circumstances. We will use a digital text, Zoom, email, and Moodle. Lab sessions will be hybrid and will consist of some online, remote sessions and some in-person sessions, with the professor meeting with 1 or 2 groups of 4 at a time; students who are not on campus will participate via zoom for group meetings with the professor. In addition, for those on campus, some face-to-face one-on-one or small group meetings may be available, but these are NOT required. One $45 digital text is all that is required to purchase.
