More details, along with a complete reading list, will be given to participants before the seminar.
We will meet each weekday from 12:00 to 3:00 PM EDT. The seminar will be held virtually via Zoom, and appropriate links will be made available in the weeks prior to the seminar’s start date.
Each participant will meet with the co-directors during the first two weeks to discuss final project research and development, and the co-directors will be available throughout the seminar for additional individual meetings.
Our pedagogy consultant will be available to meet with participants by appointment throughout the seminar.
