Starting September 21 ENVS 100.1 is all Zoom until further notice.
Krygier’s Pandemic Lecture Stylings®: We will be outside as much as possible, and it’s tough to do a regular lecture with slides. Instead, I’m going to leisurely talk through the lecture materials, while gazing at my iPad. You can follow along (on your phone or whatever) – all the stuff is on the internets – or just listen. All will be Zoomed and recorded and I’ll add the videos of each lecture to the schedule below.
Class Ceyword Compilation®: Famously known as CCC. Just so you don’t completely blamp out on all the fun concepts I talk about, I’m asking that you document two relevant keywords from each lecture topic.
The form and explanation are here.
