Spring 2017 CEE300 Schedule

CEE300 classes are organized into two types: 1) plenary, in which the entire class meets in PSY102, and 2) parallel, where we break into smaller groups and meet in separate rooms.   Tuesdays will be held in parallel.  Thursdays will have a mix of plenary and parallel sessions.

    On the topic of experience points, anyone is eligible to earn these points. The way to earn them is to participate in blogs, tweets, online surveys/quizzes etc. Although XP do not affect our grades negatively, it might be a good idea to earn some to make up for other points lost.

    XP final grade: (Totoal Points + XP)/(1000 + XP)
