Please complete the following tasks to set yourself up for the course.
In this course we will use Piazza for announcements and for answering questions. You are responsible for making sure Piazza messages are properly forwarded to an email account you check regularly. Go to https://piazza.com/virginia/fall2018/18fanimalminds to sign up.
Go to Collab and select
Tests and Quizzes in the left-side toolbar. Select
the assessment called
Reading Response 8/31. Answer the questions as you
complete the required reading for Friday’s class, Chapter 1 in Animal Cognition. If you have not yet purchased the texts for the
course, you can access the first chapter as a PDF in the Collab Resources folder.
Several of the learning exercises in this course will be conducted in groups. To help me place you in a team that’s more likely to work well together, please complete a brief pre-course survey on CATME as follows:
18F Animal Mindsand a survey called
Pre-Course Survey. You also should have received an email from CATME about the survey with a link. If you are on the waiting list or joined the course after I set up the survey, you may not see the class or the survey. Please contact me by email ASAP so I can add you to the list.
Pre-Course Surveyand answer the questions to the best of your ability. If there is a question that you prefer not to answer, or where none of the options is applicable, you may leave the answer blank. All answers will be treated with strict confidence.
