# 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).

## E-mail

Barring extraordinary circumstances, I will respond to all e-mails
within 48 hours.  Please do not expect a response sooner than 24 hours
after you send your e-mail (and don't expect to receive a reply on
Saturday or Sunday).  Please do not e-mail Prof. Russell 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.

## 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.
