We only have an hour so we need to maximize our time.
Stay focused on the topic at hand as side bar conversations can really distract from the main discussions.
Respect differences of opinion and always be considerate.
I usually allow questions after each section, however if you have questions along the way just let me know.
POTENTIAL TECHNICAL PROBLEMS
the past, it has not been unusual for someone to get booted out of a seminar, so please don’t panic if this happens to you. In fact, this happens to me from time to time as well. If you get booted out, just do your best to get right back into the class. Contact me through
AIM or course mail if you miss more than 15 minutes. If I get booted out, please keep the discussion on track while you wait for me to get back in.
