There are no formal lectures this term and instead, our meetings will be more of a seminar style. They are primarily based on your issue presentations and discussions. As discussed and as outlined HERE, your presentations will be pre-recorded with a link to your presentation posted on the OWL FORUMS HERE BY FRIDAY so that all of your classmates can view it before class. Class time will be devoted to your discussions and other things like comments from me and the occasional guest speaker.
