Class Participation and Presentations: IST 511

Class Material Writeup: For each class you will create a powerpoint summary of the material covered. This should include:

These ppt are to be placed by 2pm in the IST 511 dropbox on Angel before class.

Please be prepared to present all or part of your presentation.

Grading: Each presentation counts toward your final grade.

Participation: Class participation is a measure of your contributions to the course and a means to assess your intellectual engagement with the issues and materials in the course.  Participation means:

Participation also accrues across the semester, and not just at the end. Participation is not the same as air or floor time.  The quality of insight is more important than the quantity of insight/contributions. Class participation accumulates with each class through in-class discussion and interaction. Each student will receive an interim class participation grade around mid semester.  The remaining participation grade will be reported after the last class.

Attendance is mandatory; please see the instructor for absenses. Unexcused class absences can lead to the loss of all points for that class.

For any clarification, please ask the instructor.
