Our Course

In our course we are going to dive into the psychology of human relations. We'll be learning about how we interact with others, ourselves, and how to implement evidence-based skills for use in our current and future lives. 


Our course is remote and meets two times per week through zoom (M/W 11:00am-12:50pm). While attendance is expected, I know that life happens! In anticipation of this, there are make-up assignments you may complete to earn back the points from missed in-class activities when they occur. 


You will complete in-class activities, team quizzes, skills assessments, and weekly capstone questions! In recognition of our busy lives and life in the time of COVID-19, all late assignments will be accepted without penalty for 1-week after the due date, no questions asked! I am always open to extensions and encourage you to reach out for questions, help, or requests. 

I look forward to getting to know you all!


Due to our course being remote, you will need to access zoom and your D2L to attend class. This means that you'll need a stable internet connection to participate in online activities with your instructor and other classmates. All assignments and communications will be online, so please let me know when you have issues with technologies!
