This is the onsite section of a course also held virtual/online. You are responsible for the modality in which you register. PRE-COURSE HOMEWORK: One month prior to the institute, or immediately upon registration, required pre-course reading will be provided. This will be one document for each of the 25 lectures that will be given during the institute. On average, we estimate that each document will require approximately 30 minutes to read and consider. This is intended to constitute pre-course homework and can be completed any time prior to each lecture. POST-COURSE HOMEWORK: A reflection and feedback assignment will on average require approximately 10 minutes per lecture. This is intended to constitute post-course homework and can be completed any time after each lecture. This must be completed within one week of completion of the institute and is required for the institute to be completed, contributing 25% of the institute credit/grade.
