The interactive component of this course is established through insightful questions and critical thinking of students taking the course. It is therefore crucial that you prepare for class and are ready to ask insightful questions on the topic of each session. Students are required to attend in-person class sessions, unless there exist medical/circumstantial reasons (e.g. family emergency, medical conditions) approved by the instructors.
In the case of remote lectures replacing in-person sessions, students will be notified ahead of time by instructor or TAs. In a remote lecture, students are required to have their cameras on throughout the sessions and use their first and last names as their identifier in Zoom (unless internet logistics precludes that). Questions are encouraged at all times during the session but are essential in the Q&A part of each class.
