Eric’s Working Plan for SSII

Some people have asked me to clarify my availability to communicate with students in this class.

Because this is an asynchronous online class, the primary way you’ll interact with me in an instructional manner is in writing, by way of my comments on your posts on the course website and my comments on your draft, papers, and assignments. All discussion of readings will happen in writing on the course website.

I answer email Mondays through Thursdays first thing in the morning and then once again in the evening. I’ll follow the same pattern on Sundays.

I’m available Mondays through Thursdays by prior appointment for a Zoom call or chat. I’ll need 24 hours advanced notice for a Zoom appointment. These appointments should be booked primarily for supplementary consultations on paper drafts or to discuss how to use feedback received on finished papers. Ordinarily, they’ll last between 10 and 30 minutes.
