Read the About and Policies pages. Respond to them by putting a Comment to this post. You should discuss your reaction and response to the course goals, projects, what you expected from this class, what you think it’s going to be about, what you value as a student, what you hope to gain from this class, what ideas you might already have for presentation topics, and anything else you find relevant for me to know from the outset.
Your post serves as recognition that you have read and understood the course syllabus (i.e., this blog) and also helps me gauge what you expect from me and this class. This post should be 3-4 paragraphs, and is due by 8am next Wednesday, January 20.
Let me know if you have questions!
