Konkretisierung der Anforderungen

Regular class participation and expectation that students attend at least 80% of the lessons.

Every week there will be texts and videos which students are required to read / watch and prepare notes regarding their opinions and ideas.

Further requirements include:
- Regular class participation - in class and on Lernraum.
- A collection of weekly videos to watch and texts to read which students will discuss during class and on Lernraum forums
- Writing in weekly forums about the week's videos and texts as well as about your experiences regarding the week's topic
- A 3-5 minute presentation video which students will prepare and record on their Smartphone and post on Lernraum

Because a large part of a student's skills are developed and demonstrated during the weekly class sessions, should a student misses 20% or more of those sessions, extra work will be required to prove the student's proficiency and mastery of the course material.
