Email: Please contact your instructor only through the course email system in Canvas (see the Inbox on left bar). Always send correspondence to All Course Faculty to ensure that any course assistants also receive the note. The instructor may not receive emails sent from other email systems because of spam protection.

NOTE: I will read and respond to email and discussion forums at least once per day during the work week (Monday through Friday). You may see me online occasionally on the weekends, but please don't count on it!
