Attendance and participation are essential. Students who do not attend class and/or participate will find the class material especially difficult and, as previously stated, absent students may forfeit the opportunity to earn points on ICA assignments.
If a student does miss class, it is the student’s responsibility to catch up on any related material. While every student is encouraged to use oﬃce hours to gain a better understanding of class material, oﬃce hours are NOT for helping students catch up on material they missed because they were absent.
While class meetings are recorded, the quality and availability of those recordings is largely out of the instructor’s control. Students are advised to refer to class recordings only as a last resort. Attending class is much more conducive to learning.
Class recordings will be made available at the student’s request. Any student who is not comfortable with this and/or has any related privacy concerns should contact the instructor.
Any recordings permitted in this class can only be used for the student’s personal educational use. Students are not permitted to copy, publish, or redistribute audio or video recordings of any portion of the class session to individuals who are not students in the course or academic program without the express permission of the faculty member and of any students who are recorded. Distribution without permission may be a violation of educational privacy law, known as FERPA as well as certain copyright laws. Any recordings made by the instructor or university of this course are the property of Temple University.
