We’re glad to be getting started with this course. You'll find it a challenge, but it will also be fun.

***Active class participation is central to our work together.***

Here are a few suggestions about how to participate in the discussion. Remember to keep up with the discussion every couple of days or so. Keep your contributions short and exploratory. Try to respond to what others have already said, if you can. And try to ground your comments and ideas in the readings whenever possible. There are suggestions provided for participating in the discussion under the icon in the main menu entitled "Course information."

Each week a new topic area will appear on the Monday. You can begin discussing things right away on Monday morning - actually it's Sunday midnight if you're inclined to be up at night.
