Description

Class Experience

Throughout this course, students will engage creatively and deeply with Cicero's 16 Topics of Invention. They will apply their knowledge of them to specific tasks and connect their learning in imaginative and creative ways to other areas of individual interest and general knowledge. Two graded formal points of assessment allow insight into personal and creative achievement on the course.
Students will need a standard stationery kit (writing implements, ruler, paper, eraser), access to a scanner if submitting handwritten work, and an over-ear gaming-type set of headphones with built-on microphone and a noise-cancelling feature is recommended for best audio quality for communication in classes. Students will also benefit from having a course-specific ring-file binder or large (UK A4 or US Letter) notebook to use as they go through this Odyssey Grid journey. Please note that unless students have a very good reason not to have their video on during class, I expect students to be visible and participate actively in classes I teach. The digital classroom is a social space shaped by our intentions and our activity - and I encourage participants to actively build the kind of space they feel comfortable in, and to actively work on creating a space in which others can also feel comfortable being and acting in. Outschool does provide a 'verification' system for those who have good reasons not to participate visually, and I will respect and support that fully. Please consult https://support.outschool.com/en/articles/4063624-learner-verification for further information and contact 'verification@outschool.com' at least a week before the start of your first class to allow time for the verification process to be completed. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation in this matter.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
