Details about this class

Instructor: Emerson Wolfe. Since this is a remote course, there will be weekly Zoom meetings required. Readings and videos will be provided within D2L's weekly modules, and you will not need to purchase any materials for this course.

The instructor is changing this course over summer to use flipped classroom methods. This means that students will have videos and readings through D2L which will serve as the lecture, and class time will focus on activities, whole class discussions, small group breakouts, personality exploration, and real life problem solving role plays. Fewer assignments will be due online, and Zoom time will count as the weekly discussion/homework assignments instead. Community Agreements will be established as we engage with each other in respectful, compassionate, and curious dialogue about the complexities of personality.

Email Emerson Wolfe at emerson.wolfe@pcc.edu if you have any questions or would like to review a draft of the syllabus and calendar.


There is no additional technology required for this class.
