+# Policy
+
+## Section synopsis
+
+The purposes of the discussion section are to
+
+1. clarify any parts of the course material which you aren't sure you
+ understood; and
+2. engage philosophically with the course material by talking about it
+ as a group.
+
+Although I have studied the authors we'll be reading before, I'm
+hoping that by discussing them with you I'll learn something new. So
+please feel free to speak up regarding (1) and (2). There are no
+stupid questions!
+
+## E-mail
+
+I aim to respond to all e-mails within two working days. Please do
+not expect a response sooner than one working day, and do not expect
+to receive a reply on Saturday or Sunday. Please do not e-mail
+Prof. Anomaly just because you haven't heard back from me, unless it's
+highly urgent.
+
+## Technology
+
+**No smart phones, dumb phones, laptops or tablets may be used during
+discussion sections.** There are no exceptions without my explicit
+permission.
+
+There is [scientific evidence][] that you will remember more by taking
+notes on paper.
+

+
+## The end of class
+
+**Don't** start to pack away your things until I have finished
+speaking. It's disrespectful of me and other students who are trying
+to listen.
+
+**Don't** expect me to answer either logistical or philosophical
+questions at the end of class. I have to move to another classroom at
+the end of the section and cannot be delayed. Instead, use e-mail or
+office hours.
+
+## Accessibility and Accommodations
+
+If you anticipate or experience physical or academic barriers based on
+disability, please let me know so that we can discuss options. If you
+have reasonable accommodations, please plan to meet with me by
+appointment or during office hours to discuss accommodations and how
+my course requirements and activities may impact your ability to fully
+participate.
