This course consists of 8 units or modules. You should complete 2 modules a week. Each module will be structured similarly. There will be an introductory video outlining the activities in that module. There will be an assigned reading to complete, some media (documentary, podcast) to watch, questions for an online discussion, and finally an assessment to gage your understanding of the material presented. The tasks should be completed from left to right for each module. Once a module is completed, then you can move on to the next module.
