Participation for a course dealing
with current issues is defined as asking and answering useful questions
which further contribute to the subjects discussed in each part.
To this end, it is strongly recommended, that participants do indeed
read the assigned chapters and WWW pages, so that questions may be asked
and good exchanges and discussions take place. Contributions can also be
made by identifying resources on the WWW that would be useful to the course.
These contributions can be made in the form of emailing the information
to the professor. When making such subsmissions, don't simply
email the URL, go further and describe some reasons why the particular
site/article is relevant. 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.
