We are going to be a mixed group of folks in this course - in multiple ways!
One important way we are mixed is that some of us are Iliff students taking the course as a hybrid and we'll be on campus together October 12-13, while others of us are students at Christian Theological School in Indianapolis, or are students at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary in Texas and we will be online only. But except for weeks 5 and 6, we're ALL going to learn and engage together in this space. In weeks 5 and 6 Canvas will automatically show you only the assignments relevant to you (if I set it up correctly.) 7-25-2019
