3.3 Getting to Know Each Other

PrintPrint

This week, you’ll have a one-on-one video conference call with one of your classmates as per the schedule you were provided in Week 1. The discussion should be at least 30 minutes in length. If it’s the first time you’ve chatted with each other, spend the majority of time getting to know each other. Otherwise, focus on discussing the lesson content. For this assignment, you can use any video conferencing tool you like (e.g., Google Hangouts, Skype, etc.). You can also use the Zoom room we use for the weekly webinars. If you do decide to use the Zoom room, send out an e-mail to the whole class listing the date and time you have agreed to with your one-on-one partner for the week so others don't attempt to use the room at the same time.

Assignment 3-4 (15 points)

Submit an M.S. Word document which briefly summarizes your one-on-one conversation with a classmate (no more than 300 words) to Assignment 3-4 in Canvas. The summary you’ll submit is an individual assignment and is not intended to be a joint activity. If it’s the first time you’ve spoken with each other, your summary should primarily address what you learned about each other’s skills, interests, and backgrounds. Otherwise, your summary should focus on ideas and insights about the lesson content which came out of the conversation.
