Instructor notes: This is an 8-week, entirely online course. Students are expected to start working in Blackboard from the very beginning, and there are deadlines in the first few days of the class which must be met to maintain enrollment. The book for the course is How to Think About Weird Things, 7th edition, by Schick and Vaughn. It's available in the bookstore. I will also accept 5th or 6th edition (4th or earlier would be too early). There are no in-person meetings, but there are weekly deadlines, and the course is not self-paced.
