You must meet with me at least twice in the course of the semester during the designated
studio appointment days prior to the final critique presentation.
Presentations/critiques: Students will be evaluated through in class critiques as to
professional seriousness and commitment to the concerned subject. This includes
preparation, content depth and vitality of resources related to content. There are 2 critiques
and 2 presentaions in the course of the semester.
Participation: It is important that you be at all lectures and class seminars and that you are
engaged in the dialogue with the rest of the class. You will be deducted for absences that
are not medically prohibited*. Missing a cumulative total of critique, lecture or demo class
days will result in an unsatisfactory evaluation.
10% Notebook: your notebook is the critical link to the process you are involved with and its evolution. It is important that you take class notes and record your research and source material to assist in the evaluation of your progress.
I would like to take this opportunity to fill you in on some general course expectations and
policies regarding attendance, grades, classroom etiquette, assignments, materials and attitude.
Questions and/or difficulties in this course most often arise in these areas. It is your right to be
informed of my beliefs and strategies on these issues.
remember that it is the University policy that faculty are only required to respond to emails
sent from a university account. So you may use your own personal off campus email but I
am not required to respond.
