Feb. 7 is the last day to add HLTH 48 (and any of the Monday-only courses).
This Thursday (1/30) is the last day to add classes or change sections for full term courses.
Come to the first day of class, or email me!
Monday, Jan. 27 we meet from 4:10 to 7:40 in MUB 340.
See you there!
In Spring 2014 I will be teaching HLTH 48, Violence as a Public Health Issue. This class focuses on public health approaches to preventing violence and responding to its effects.
I will not be teaching my usual online class, HLTH 54 - Intro to Public Health in Spring 2014. I plan to be teaching it again in Fall 2014 and Spring 2015.
My office hours for Sept. 24 and 26, my regular office hour at 2:00-2:30 is cancelled, as I have meetings with other faculty at that time. I have 5 students from HLTH 221 signed up to see me on Sept. 24, between 10 and 11 and between 12 and 12:30. I still have space to see students on Thursday Sept. 26 between 10 and 10:30. I can also answer questions by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Thank you for your understanding.
My office hours are back at their regular times on October 1st, onward.
I understand that in some classes, some students were dropped when they didn't mean to be. They didn't drop themselves. The teacher didn't drop them. But somehow, they slipped off the list in Web4. So - if this is you, if you were in HLTH 54 and you aren't now, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. I will let you back in the class. Contact me right away.
Please sign up for HLTH 54 online
- and if it is full, you can add yourself to the electronic waitlist
. If the waitlist is full, it is unlikely I will add you - but I might - so if you want to try, please send me your full name, your ID number and your registration date. I will notify you by the end of the second week of the semester if you may add the class.
If I send you an add code, please add the class right away. If you don't add within 48 hours, I will give your slot to someone else.
After you add the course in Web4, within 24 hours you will be added to the course in Insight and be able to begin. Check your CCSFmail for a password and other information on how to access Insight. Insight is located at http://insight.ccsf.edu
I'm trying out Twitter for my classes. If you are a Twitter user, you can either follow me @JaneySkinner or look for the hashtags #HLTH54 and #HLTH48. I will "tweet" reminders about upcoming quizzes or due dates on assignments. Don't expect a lot of traffic from me on Twitter - it will be mostly utilitarian reminders. I will not tweet a whole lot about the subject matter of the course - not because I am at a loss of words to opine about public health and violence prevention, but I figure I get enough opportunity to do that in this course. If you want to use the hashtags to share more information and/or ideas with your classmates, you are welcome to do so. The one thing I would advise, though, is to remember that if you are in my class and you are using the hashtag for our class, you are expected to be as polite and respectful as you are in class. (Of course, I imagine you can also be as funny or smart or insightful on Twitter as you are in class, too!)
HLTH 54 (Intro to Public Health) online sections: If you are
already on the electronic wait list, check your email frequently during
the first two weeks of the semester – I will send you an add code if
there is space in the course. If you are NOT on the electronic wait
list already, and the semester has not yet started, check back frequently as a space may open up. I will only
add students from the wait list – if you are not on the list, I’m
sorry, please try again next semester. After the first day of the semester, the wait list is closed.
There is an optional
ORIENTATION SESSION for the online sections of HLTH 54 on Thursday, August 16th, 5:00-6:30 pm, in Rosenberg Library room 414. Especially
for those who have not taken online courses before, I highly recommend
attending this orientation. All students enrolled in HLTH 54 or on the
wait list for HLTH 54 are welcome at the orientation session.
HLTH 54 (Transitions Clinic Network cohort): Please look for communication from me or the project director regarding your enrollment in this class.
HLTH 48: Violence as a Public Health Issue. If this class is full in Web4, please come to the first day of class (on time) to put your name on a wait list. I will give add stickers the second week of class, most likely. In fall 2012, this class meets in MU 330, Mondays 4-7 pm.
