Attendance & Participation

Attendance and Participation are key dimensions of this class. Although this is an intro class, we dive deep in our analyses and creative work, both in class conversation and online. I know speaking in class is not equally comfortable for all, and I do take this into consideration, but I encourage you to do your best to make yourself feel comfortable participating in our class conversations in person, online, or both. I hope you’ll feel comfortable wrangling with ideas, going out on a limb offering interpretations, and exploring new technologies and forms of critical and creative expresssion. Attendance at screenings is also important; through the shared experience (albeit virtual), our weekly class screenings contributes to the collective experience of media analysis that is at the heart of this class.
