Communication Policy

Please post all course-related questions in the Ed Discussions discussion boards so that the whole class may benefit from our conversations. Not all posts require a reply from the instructor or learning assistants and often it is better for students to work on an answer to a question themselves, helping cement understanding or locate resources to answer questions.

To contact the learning assistants, open Canvas Inbox, compose a new message, select this course, then next to the ‘To’ box click the address book, select “Teaching Assistants”, then choose the name(s) of learning assistants you wish to contact.

Please DM in Teams or email Mr. Kerlin only for matters of a personal or private (grading) nature. The instructor or a learning assistant will reply to most course-related questions within 48 hours.

Please send a Teams message or email to your instructor for matters of a personal nature. I am typically around on Teams throughout much of the day, though I am in the U.S. Central Time Zone.  If you need to schedule a 1 on 1 meeting with me, please try scheduling a meeting through my Scheduler (link) first (Note: same day appointments are unlikely to be available).  If you cannot make any of the available open scheduling slots, please email or Teams message me with at least 3 day/time combinations which work for you and would make sense for the U.S. Central Time Zone as well.

Technical Questions
