Online Instructor Evaluation:

Course and instructor evaluations are critical for maintaining and improving course
quality. To make evaluations as meaningful as possible, we need 100% student
participation. Therefore, participation in the School\u2019s web-based academic administration
initiative during the eighth and ninth week of this course is a requirement of this course.
Failure to participate in this process will result in a grade of incomplete for the course.
This incomplete will be automatically removed within seven weeks after the end of the
course and replaced by the grade you would have received if you had fulfilled this
requirement.

Email:

Email is the primary means of communication between faculty and students enrolled in
this course outside of class time. Students should be sure their email listed under
"demographic information" at http://campusconnect.depaul.edu is correct.
