Attend to all classes is essential. Un-excused absences will result in faults to the participation evaluation. Keep me updated if you need to miss class. In any case, the students are responsible for being up-to-date. Being late will be perceived the same way.
Since our class periods are very long (2:30–7:45PM), we will have sections in which it will be possible for you to leave the classroom to do research elsewhere, whether it is for production or conceptualization.
You will be evaluated according to your overall engagement in the projects. Your active participation during the semester will also be taken in account.
