Notes for Fall 2020 Enrollment
EDUC 2610 will be open to all Cornell undergraduate students during the August enrollment period.
EDUC 2610 will continue to be a course that relies heavily on class conversations and dialogue. As such, students are expected to attend their synchronous section time each week. Students will need access to a quiet, private space, and will ideally have headphones. Students will need a web camera, a microphone, and a reliable internet connection in order to successfully participate in class activities.
Students who are in Ithaca and are concerned about access to a quiet, private space or reliable internet: We will work with you to reserve small private rooms (one person per room) on campus for you to use each week during class.
EDUC 2610 is open to all Cornell undergraduate students. Each section comprises 10 – 20 undergraduate participants and two trained peer facilitators. Class meets once a week for three hours.
To maximize learning and the opportunity for meaningful intergroup dialogue, sections are intentionally created after students have enrolled in the course in order to ensure a mixed and balanced representation of views, experiences, and identities. To do this, it is necessary for us to collect information about your social identities. We do this via our Placement Form. We also use the information collected in this form to inform our decision-making when choosing specific readings and activities for the semester.
You do not need to disclose an identity if you are not comfortable doing so, but you do need to submit a Placement Form in order to obtain or maintain enrollment status in the course.
Please note, while we use your self-reported social identities to craft dynamic and diverse sections, this information has no impact on enrollment in this course.
If you are not able to enroll in EDUC 2610 in Student Center, you should still submit a Placement Form. When you submit a Placement Form, you will automatically be added to the waitlist. As seats open up (if students drop the course or switch sections), we will begin to reach out to students on the waitlist to offer them a seat. We will contact you by email if a space opens up for you. You do not need to do anything in addition to submitting a Placement Form.
Dropping EDUC 2610
Dropping EDUC 2610 requires department consent as it is important for us to have an accurate course roster and to know if a student is dropping so we can add additional students from the waitlist.
Submit an EDUC 2610 Removal Request Form to notify us of your intention to drop the course and to receive department consent to drop the course in Student Center. The details we ask for in the form help us process your request as quickly as possible. We will email you to let you know when your request has been processed.
