These 4 week classes are offered as virtual online learning opportunities. They are designed to provide a complete learning experience at a slower, more measured pace and without the added expense of travel and lodging. Students may log into the class blog at anytime. There are no scheduled times for the class to meet, so students may complete their work and study on their own schedules. Classes are limited to 10 participants.
The Class Blog
The class is centered around a private blog, accessible only by class participants. About a week before the class starts you’ll receive an invitation via email to join the class blog. You will need to accept in order to participate in the class. I’ll send the invitation to the email you used to sign up for the class unless you tell me to use another one.
Also, once the class starts, you’ll receive emails whenever anyone posts or comments to the blog. However, in order to comment or make a post, you’ll need to sign into the blog and do that there.
Several weeks before the class starts, students receive via email a materials list, reading list and a class notebook. Each week on Friday a class assignment and lesson will be posted along with other pertinent information like examples of exercises or other concepts, video demos and written materials pertaining to that week's topic. Students will complete their assignments and post them to the blog for discussion/critique by the following Wednesday . Most students post their work throughout the week and questions and comments are posted and responded to on a daily basis.
In order to fully participate students will need to be able to upload digital images to the blog.
