    • JINS 376: Women’s Health
      How to complete this course online in eight weeks
    • Play with the links
      Explore the different sections of the course
      Become familiar with what’s posted at which link
      Use the external links to outside sources
      Not for a grade; just to stretch your brain
    • “Information”
      Goes to documents that tell you what to do
      Consider downloading the syllabus, article list, and wiki schedule to your own machine
      Read the syllabus; it’s your friend
    • Syllabus
      A syllabus is a contract between instructor and students
      Course policies as detailed in the syllabus apply to all students consistently
      Any exceptions to syllabus policy must be available to all students equally
    • Course calendar
      The course calendar is available to you in two places:
      The last two pages of the syllabus
      The “my calendar” module in Blackboard
      These should be consistent; notify me if you find discrepancies.
    • Try to do a little bit every day.
      You’ll work on all multiple things simultaneously.
      You will probably need to do some reading and/or writing every day.
      Get in touch with me right away if you’re having trouble with the class.
    • I want all of you to be successful in the course.
      Please note policy on extensions in the syllabus.
      Please do contact me by email, in office hours chat, or by phone (785-4561) if anything needs clarification.
    • A few considerations:
      Any exception I make from course policies for one student must be available to every student.
      I will be reading, writing, and grading every day myself– any exceptions from course policy shouldn’t exacerbate the already intense summer schedule.
    • What you can expect of me
      I will be absolutely consistent in the application of course policies.
      I will read all written work within one business day after it’s posted to Blackboard.
      I will post scores and provide feedback on each assignment in time for students to incorporate that feedback into the next step of their work.
    • What you can expect of me
      I will keep office hours from 2-4 Monday through Friday, accessible by phone or Blackboard chat.
      I will work with the class to adjust those hours if they’re incompatible with your needs.
      I will check my email twice daily M-F, once before noon and again before 5 p.m.
    • Think of the course as three strands:
      Reader’s Journals and Replies
      Wiki entries
      Your synthesis project
    • About writing
      I assume you’ve all had at least one writing class in the past.
      We are not going to spend time going over writing process and basic composition.
      Click “Synthesis paper” in the homepage sidebar for links to writing-related resources.
    • About citations and plagiarism
      I also assume you’ve received instruction about how to cite sources appropriately.
      Refer to your discipline’s style manual or the online resources provided for details on how to cite when paraphrasing or using direct quotes.
      You will submit papers in Blackboard through SafeAssign, which screens for plagiarism. See syllabus for academic integrity policy.
