Class attendance and expectations of students: Students perform better when they attend class regularly, therefore you are expected to be there . It would be in your best interest to make it to every class (yo u’r e paying for it, so take advantage of all to which you re entitled). For the convenience of Sections 02/03 and required for Section 01 (blended online course), all lectures will be recorded with Panopto. See below for Panopto description. The instructor is the facilitator, but it is you, the student, who is ultimately responsible for: 1. being prepared for each lecture and activity session a. studying required reading assignments (and Panopto recordings when appropriate) b. completing online homework assignments c. reviewing lecture outlines d. logging on to the Canvas website regularly to check announcements. 2. turning-off all electronic devices (phone, laptops, tablets). (Note: if you choose to use laptops/tablets to take notes, you are asked to sit in the back of the classroom) 3. taking written notes in class (see “Taking Notes/ Studying - Forming synapses & growing dendrite s” below) 4. making arrangements with a classmate or TAs for missed lectures 5. studying your notes and other materials regularly; recommend~3-6 hr/wk. 6. seeking out the instructor or TAs as questions, comments or concerns arise.

Page 4 of 10 Taking Notes/ Studying- Forming synapses & growing dendrites: Learning is the formation of new synapses and dendrite branches. So when you learn, your brain is actually physically growing and changing. To accomplish this, new concepts/material should: (1) build on what you already know AND (2) be exposed to the brain several times and in several different ways (seeing, hearing, reading, talking). Therefore, it is recommended that as you approach the new course material you look for connections with what you already know (e.g., from other lectures, classes or experiences); and study the material from different resources (e.g., lecture notes, text book chapters, other readings), and in different ways (e.g., applying material through homework, taking practice quizzes, and talking about the material with classmates). I also encourage you to form small study groups that meet weekly. For information on learning/training your brain, check out these websites: ; Students are given access to lecture notes before each chapter. These are in Word format and contain lecture outlines and important figures not found in your text. Note: I do not share my Powerpoint slides, so please don’t ask. You may look for any missed material on the Panopto- captured lecture. I suggest you bring the lecture outline with you to class (or as you view the Panopto recording) to take written notes. Research on learning shows that students learn better when they take notes by hand than when they type with a keyboard. Writing by hand allows a student to process a lecture’s contents and reframe it— a process of reflection and manipulation that can lead to better understanding and memory encoding.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
