Important note:


— The 2022 2nd edition has been adjusted to be completed in 3 weeks. Between classes you will consider a few short texts which will be discussed (and evaluated) during synchronous classes. 

For the asynchronous work between week 2 and 3 you will create a very simple, short, presentation (2-minute video). You will receive plenty of help and support to do this. 

— although there is a lot of extra content made available, the asynchronous work has been designed to take a maximum of two hours each week. Any more than this is your own option and you are very welcome to do extra.
