    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not procrastinate on the paper. It is only for participation, but it requires a lot of research and time.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class was a class that I'm sad to say wasted a lot of time for me. Honestly, the class was extremely broad and a lot of information to take in. Mostly it is all about critical thinking and trying to somehow relate every lesson to the outside world. On the flipside, a benefit of the course is that if you do your work then you're highly likely to get fairly high grades considering there are hardly ever any right or wrong answers for the questions that you are told to ask.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that a stick can be technology. Jk, but really we were asked that question. Anyways, I really don't know what I was supposed to learn or even if I did learn anything at all. I really just thought more about technology being things other than devices than I ever have before.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do journals as the week goes on. Thankfully it is the only homework in the course so getting it finished in a timely manner is something the professors expect to be completed.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    The class was very unstructured; lectures often seemed random and disjointed from one another, and the professors did not seem like they necessarily prepared much for class. However, assignments were kept to a minimum and grading was typically agreeable. If you like discussion based classes without many restrictions, this class is for you, but if you prefer clear, specific assignments and a more structured classroom, you may want to look elsewhere.

    Course highlights:

    This course definitely encouraged critical thinking and exploration of my own opinions. Reflection is a key element in this course, and students had to learn how to think for themselves. Generally, I learned that technology and culture is an extremely broad subject matter that almost anything can apply to if one is willing to think critically and make connections.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Stay on top of your journals and do the readings. Otherwise, assignments will creep up on you and you will not be able to put out your best result. Also, speak up in class. A significant percentage of your grade comes from participation.
