I hope you all are doing well. These are very uncertain times, so I’ll do my best to present a plan we can follow to finish the class without adding more distress.

As you may already know, we’re moving our class online starting next week. For us, that means the following:


I will post a summary + additional discussion on the main topics of the week here. I’ll add questions to answer as comments there [this counts as participation].


Participation for the last two classes (March 27 and April 3) will be exclusively online. This means reading and answering questions (posed by your classmates or myself) as comments on the website. You must answer to at least two questions each week to receive participation credit. Interacting with the stories (in terms of the questions they pose) also counts as participation.

Complementary readings

Instead of a ppt presentation, you will need to write a short overview of your reading (1/2 page) and present two questions to the class. You can post a video if you prefer. The questions should link your reading with the topic of the week.


Yes. You can react to them as well [emoticons do not count as participation, though].

Final project

Please post your updated proposal under evaluations > proposals and schedule an online meeting with me [required]. Projects must be submitted by April 17. We won’t have presentations, but they will be posted on the website. In the case of videos, if you can upload them to a platform, it will be easier. Otherwise, we will publish only summaries.

If you need/want to discuss something with me, or if I can be of any assistance, please let me know.

If you believe that you are unable to meet any of the new class requirements for any reason, please contact me as soon as possible to reach an alternative agreement.

Flatten the curve, grow the care
