To get started with the course, please review the items under the Start Here menu, as these will give you a quick orientation to the course. Make sure to watch the Course Walkthrough video for more information on how to navigate this facilitated asynchronous online course.
Then, head to the Week 1 Overview to get started with your course activities and assignments. Your first reading assignments are due by Wednesday January 20 at 11:59 pm, and your first discussion activity kicks off then as well, so make sure that you’re prepared to join in. This is a structured course; although topics, readings, activities, and assignments will be spread out over the week, you will have specific due dates during the week. It’s important to review the weekly overviews and to-do lists so that you know what you’re responsible for doing each week.
Please ask any and all questions on the Q&A channel in Teams!
