A BIG THANK YOU
To everyone’s who has been ATTENDING CLASS!
To everyone who is keeping up with their blog assignments. To the four people who are completely up-to-date on their blog: 👏👏🏾👏🏿👏🏽👏👏🏾👏🏿👏🏽👏👏🏾👏🏿👏🏽👏👏🏾👏🏿👏🏽
And a reminder that Phase 2 blog assignments are required. (This is meant to balance out the decreased grading emphasis on attendance and participation.) There’s no minimum word count for blog posts, but I suggest writing 1-3 paragraphs for each speaker. Please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns.
Today’s session will involve interactive activities that make full use of the Zoom UI: hand raising, reactions, microphone, breakout rooms, etc. I hope that you’ll attend with an open mind and give this level of participation a try–I know it can be a lot right now. If you think this might not be for you, you are welcome to let me know in the chat (you can message me directly).
The preliminary Final Project Requirements are now posted and updated with a new “story-making” option. We will discuss them in class today. I will now wait until next Tuesday 4/28 to finalize this post.
Course Evaluations are now open. I’ll allot 15 minutes for this in an upcoming session.
Please discuss today’s Intro to LGBTQ+ workshop with Chris Woods. Please discuss any new terms, strategies, concepts, or resources that you learned about. Discuss the Breakout Room prompt: How can technology support LGBTQ+ communities in the time of COVID? How can different kinds of living situations be supported?
Please review the Final Project Requirements and email me by Tuesday if you don’t these requirements seem feasible for you right now (or if you have any other questions/comments).
