Schedule

Tuesday, August 31 – November 9, 2021

Once the registration period has passed and we know how many students have registered for each course section, students will be assigned to a specific small group. A list of these small groups will be posted on Blackboard, which will include: the names of the students assigned to each group, the name and contact information of the facilitator for each group, and the Zoom meeting link for each group. Once assigned to a particular small group, students will be expected to attend that same group’s meetings each week of the course.

*Note to Graduate Program Coordinators: Any student who needs to take the course in the “Online” delivery mode rather than as a “Completely Online” course (e.g., new international students in MS programs who are here on campus) should register for IND 501-1, the 4:30-5:30pm section coded “Hybrid”. (The misnomer is an issue with course coding in UR Student.) For students in IND 501-1, at least one small group session will take place ‘in person’ (date and location will be announced later).

ATTENDANCE IS MANDATORY AT ALL SESSIONS
