Is this weather still nice? by now you should have gotten the msg – THE COLLEGE IS CLOSED THURSDAY, so there is NO CLASS tonight, so we will miss a full week of classes.
The faculty have decided that we will move the schedule for weeks 2-4 back to weeks 3-5. thus, the book for NEXT WEEK (week 3) is Thinking in Systems, and the seminar roles for next week will be as they were for this week.
The schedule for weeks 6-10 will be much as it is now in the syllabus (readings, lectures, seminar roles), with a few minor changes. We will post a revised syllabus next week (and announce that Tuesday in class). The midterm exam (now scheduled to be due Week 5) will likely be due Tuesday of Week 6. So you might want to start reading (and writing!) ahead.
We suggest you also use this time “off” to work on your candidacy paper abstract and bibliography (due next Thursday).
If the change in seminar role dates is a problem for you (e.g., you are scheduled to be facilitator or scribe for a week you will be out of town), contact your seminar faculty. To consult the seminar roles for your seminar, look in the program fileshare (see below). Gerardo will post the articles to read for the Fisheries week as soon as he can get in to the College.
I’m typing this in my cold dark apartment, so be tolerant of errors (but email if you have questions).
Stay safe and warm. If your power is out, try downtown – it’s hopping! Enjoy the snow! See you next week.
FINDING ESS DOCS: You can always find that (and other program docs) easily by going to http://blogs.evergreen.edu/ess/ then clicking on the nav bar at right: ESS Fileshare on Orca, i.e., https://myfiles.evergreen.edu/academics/programs/ESS-MES-Winter2012/
Once there, click on “Handouts”, then Docs, and you’ll see various files with the info you want. This method works for downloading and viewing files, but not uploading (copying files to the fileshare).
I’ve also posted on the program web site (in the sticky “Welcome” post) how to information on accessing the program fileshare for uploading documents from off campus.
