DEXIGN THE FUTURE COURSE ARC 2.001

FIRST, A CAVEAT:

This is the first time that we’re teaching this course and it intends to accommodate a wide variety of student interests and the enormous evolutionary leaps taking place in the field. As a result, there are bound to be some “bumps” along the “journey of discovery” that we’re taking together. We hope for and appreciate your suggestions and constructive criticism of what works and what doesn’t, and generally how to make this course great. In addition, we’re always finding new things that apply to the course and we’ll likely try to inject other materials as we come across them during the semester. It is possible that, as we “get into” the material, we’ll want to make some modifications to the course schedule due to timing and/or content issues. Our commitment is to give you enough advanced notice on modifications to sufficiently prepare.
