  • understand why the freedom to read and use materials is important.

Class starts on May 13, 2019, and all assignments must be completed by May 24, 2019..

The class is asynchronous — class participants do not need to be online at any particular time; however, there are due dates for assignments, which must be met.

A few days before the class starts, class participants will be sent information about accessing the class.
