The fall semester begins today. I hope everyone is looking forward to classes as much as I am. Students who are in my various classes should have received a postcard with instructions on how to access course materials. We will be relying on the Moodle environment again this semester. I encourage everyone to review the class materials as soon as possible (before coming to class). Don’t forget to get your textbook(s) as well. I hope most will be able to participate in the traditional versions of classes. I realize this is not an option for everyone. If you enounter problems at any time during class, please contact me as soon as possible. After all – bad news never improves with age.
