New from last fall and reprised for the spring is the Flipped quick-start to R series. The flipped series’ aim is to make remote learning more engaging, less fatiguing. You will watch the introductory video in advance. You control the pace of the thirty-minuted advance video. Optionally watch additional explanatory videos at your discretion. Exercises, referenced within the video, are recommended and at your own pace. The Zoom-workshop will start with an open Question/Answer period; questions that arise from the video(s) and exercises.
