I am accessible most of the time. Please visit the Contact Me page of this site for details.
I use Slack as the primary communications platform for all of our course communications. When you enroll in one of my courses I will send you an invitation to join the course Slack team before our class meets for the first time. Please use your SHU email and your full name as your screen name when you create your Slack profile and join the course team. Be sure to complete your profile by a adding all of the required information including your name, mobile#, email address, Skype userid and a recent head shot (photo).
Finally, you can access Slack from any browser (mobile or desktop) and via the Slack apps for either either type of device. Please download and install the Slack apps to your Mac, PC and mobile devices (iOS and Android versions are available) before our class begins. You will need to keep your Slack access live on all of your devices so that we can fully integrate the platform into our learning environment. If you have any questions about Slack please visit their support page.
Respect is essential in our various forms of communication. If you are participating in my course then I expect that you will do so with enthusiasm but always with proper decorum. Slang, cursing, texting – style acronyms are inappropriate in any of my course interactions. Proper grammar and spelling must be used at all times. Please also use correct English in emails, and specify the course and subject matter in the subject line, e.g., “BLAW2301 / Discussion Board #2” or “Smith vs. Jones”, not “yo!” or “hey prof”. For further information on Seton Hall University’s code of conduct, please refer to the Student Handbook.
ALL electronic devices must be must be silenced during class meetings, either F2F or virtual.
Parent & Guardian Inquiries / Communication
If I receive any inquiries from parents/guardians regarding your performance in this course, I will first discuss the matter with you, the student. I will not engage in any discussion with parents/guardians until I have done so and received your permission, in writing, to respond to the inquiry.
