Instructor: Maggie Rouman
Welcome! I look forward to learning with you and sharing experiences during this course. If you have a question, feel free to post, and ask it in the Maggie's Musings section of the class discussion board. I check the discussion board twice a day (once in the morning and once in the evening). You may also send an email. All emails will receive a response within 24 hours. You may call, or Skype during the following days/hours: M-F 3pm-5pm CT or 7pm-9pm CT, Saturdays 8am-11am CT.
Analysis: When creating my contact information list, I tried to offer a variety of options to my students. For those who prefer to talk, I chose to use my cell phone and Skype as contact method. I preferred not to use my home phone number. I offered the Skype option for those who would like to "meet" face-to-face. Since most of my students probably don't live in Chicago, this would be a good way for them to get reassurance and see a friendly face. The call hours I provided give my students a variety of options. I offered times during the work day, times during the evening, and even a weekend option. These times are optimal for me, and don't infringe upon my personal/other work life. For those who prefer to write, I offered the option of posting a question on the discussion board. For those who would like more privacy, I offered the option of sending an email. I did mention that I respond to emails within twenty-four hours.
