Students in Section A (in-person expectation) are indeed expected to attend
lecture in person whenever possible. Lecture interactions are an important part of
the learning experience.
In order to attend class meetings in person, all students are expected to abide by all
behaviors indicated in A Tartan's
Responsibility, including timely updated based on current conditions. In terms of
specific classroom expectations, whenever the requirement to wear a facial covering is
in effect on campus, students are expected to wear a facial covering throughout class.
Such a requirement is in effect for the start of the Fall 2021 semester.
Lectures will be recorded and made available on Canvas > Zoom. Recordings of class
sessions are covered under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and
must not be shared with anyone outside the course. Feel free to use the recordings if
you would like to review something we discussed in class or if you are temporarily
unable to attend class.
Lectures will be recorded and made available via Canvas > Zoom. In addition,
remote-only students may attend the regularly scheduled Zoom office hour and are
expected to use Piazza for weekly substantial interaction with the course staff
regarding the lecture material.
There will be in-person and Zoom office hours by the instructor and teaching
assistant, indicated on the course home page.
All assignments have due dates indicated on the schedule and assignment pages. In
general, submitting assignments on time lets the instructional team provide feedback in
a more timely and efficient manner. Assignments build on each other, so timely
submissions are crucial to your progress in the class. However, we will not strictly
enforce the assignment deadlines. But please note that advance notice is required if
your homework is delayed, and grading may take longer for late hand-ins compared to
those submitted by the deadline.
If you have a disability and have an accommodations letter from the Disability
Resources office, I encourage you to discuss your accommodations and needs with the
instructor as early in the semester as possible. We will work with you to ensure that
accommodations are provided as appropriate. If you suspect that you may have a
disability and would benefit from accommodations but are not yet registered with the
Office of Disability Resources, I encourage you to contact them at email@example.com.
There are a lot of unknowns this semester, which adds to the usual academic stress.
Please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org should you need support, help, or
accommodations, or come to the regularly scheduled office hour.
The university also offers support and counseling and we encourage you to take
advantage of it if you experience difficult life events, or feelings like anxiety or
depression. Counseling and Psychological Services (CaPS) is here to help: call
412-268-2922 and visit their website at http://www.cmu.edu/counseling. Consider
reaching out to a friend, faculty or family member you trust for help getting connected
to the support that can help.
