Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, this class will be held ONLINE. It will mainly follow a synchronous setup (e.g. via Moodle-supported live-conferencing applications) each week at the scheduled time of class. In order to be able to actively participate in class, it is necessary for you to have functioning speakers and a microphone (ideally a headset). A camera is not required but ideal. If synchronous online participation does not work at all for you, please get in touch with me ahead of registering and so we can see how you can participate otherwise.
More details will be given in the first session. If you have any specific questions ahead of signing up, please do not hesitate to get in touch with me (firstname.lastname@example.org).
