Collaboration and Projects

We are moving to ONLINE instruction for this class beginning this week no matter what OU decides:

  • If OU face to face classes are *still in session* go to the classroom at 3 pm. I will communicate with you via Canvas or email or text how I will attend virtually
  • If OU face to face classes have *all moved online* check your email, texts, and Canvas for instruction about where/how we will meet virtually at 3 pm.
    • We will probably NOT meet the full time as a whole class together, but I may have follow ups individually with each of you on the phone or FaceTime during class session so please do not schedule anything else from 3-5:40 Wednesdays.

No matter what I hear you about the need for clear, consistent, regular communication. I promise that if you are engaging in the class, I will be generous and considerate of the challenges and ask that you be generous and considerate of your peers.
If you are feeling stressed, feeling a desire to check out please text me so we can strategize about how to get back on track.
