ASSIGNMENT PREP DUE DATES: [note: assignments will be ordered so that the most recent one appears on top]
NOTE: Due to the nature of our hybrid/remote learning dynamics, I’ve moved all assignment announcements to the “Weekly” module folders under “Course Content” in Blackboard (Bb). There, I provide links to course materials that I house here, but I won’t be updating *this* page like I normally would have in the past. Look for what’s due each week inside those Bb weekly folders.
