Details about this class

This is an asynchronous Web class, so you will NOT attend in-person classes online or on campus. All coursework will be completed online.  We will use a digital textbook that includes interactive features like self-tests, videos, journal writings, self-assessments, and a variety of other study aids. I will also offer a curated selection of current videos on D2L Brightspace each week to supplement your learning, so you can "choose your own adventure" to some extent :) 

As your instructor, I'll be available on campus, remotely on Zoom, or by phone or email to talk or meet with you to support your learning.

There is no additional technology required for this class.
