Please note: Each student is required to bring a laptop computer (with wireless Internet capability if possible) and is able to use it competently before the course begins. Please arrive early to “plug in”. This is a paperless course. At this time a laptop is essential (rather than an iPad or other tablet.) We will give you a flash drive with all materials except the books as noted above. We will provide a nice continental breakfast and snacks. Lunch is from 12noon – 1pm – please bring your own or there are several eateries nearby. If the weather good you can eat outside on our patio or in the conference room.
