Course expectations include: class preparation - reading all materials in advance; attendance and participation in discussions and in-class assignments, accurate, timely completion and submission of course assignments; and adherence to accepted standards in written assignments. Participants will be treated with respect and are expected to act accordingly. Disruptive or disrespectful behaviour in the classroom (making phone calls, checking emails, etc.), is not acceptable. Eating, drinking, and using tobacco are not permitted during class times or within the Museum building at any time.
