Class Participation is defined as regularly attending class (not just for filling a seat) and asking and answering useful questions which further  contribute to the subjects
discussed in each session. To this end, it is strongly recommended, that participants do indeed read the assigned   WWW pages BEFORE class, so that
questions may be asked and good discussions takes place.  Program Participants should make an effort to contribute useful information on regular occasions 

Contributions can also be made by identifying resources on the WWW that would be useful to the class. These contributions can be made in the form or emailing
information to the professor, or bringing to class various articles and documents. If you do send an email, DO NOT just send the URL - you should make a summary, in your own words, as to why the article is useful and how it contributes to what we are discussing in class. Really good emails could be worth 2, 3 or possibly even 4 marks. Class participation / contribution will be calculated on a per incident basis so students should plan on trying to have something useful to say, or contribute at least once every second or third class. 

Class participation marks can also include the dabte in class and the Navigating Work Sheet - if you are not present that day - you will lose the marks. 

You do not get marks for attendance - but the professor keeps track of attendance to help in determining some aspects of class participation and final grade. It is your responsibility to sign the "attendance sheet" as it is passed around in class, if you do NOT sign this sheet, you will be marked absent. If youarrive late, make sure you find where the sheet is and sign it.


Assignments handed in late will have marks deducted - UNLESS prior arrangement made with the instructor.
If you think you might have a reason why a future assignment might be late CONTACT THE PROFESSOR IN ADVANCE.
You should check this page regularly in case there has to be some changes to these dates due to scheduling considerations.
