Office Hours and Computer Assistance

Your instructor will have two office hours per week: Thursday at 12:30 and at 3:30, Clearihue B436. In this course especially you should consider office hours a time when you can conveniently supplement the various materials you are working with. I am there to be consulted: you can ask questions about any aspect of the course, and can receive individual assistance on the computer component of the course if you need it. If you can't make it to my office hours, the best way of reaching me is by e-mail (I check it at several time a day); alternatively you can phone during my office hours. I will get back to you as soon as I can.

General assistance on computer matters is available in the various computer labs around campus.

Problems and Complaints

The first thing to do if you have a problem with the course is to approach the Course Instructor directly÷in person, by phone, or by e-mail. If you are not satisfied, you should speak to the Director of the Language Program (Dr. Gordon Fulton). Hey, nobody's perfect. You should also be aware that the Department of English has two Equity Officers (one male, one female) if your problem has to do with issues that concern equity. The UVSS also has an Ombudsperson.
