Office Hours: Winter 2016

My scheduled office hours during the Winter 2016 term (January 4 – April 9) are Tuesdays 1:30-3:00 and Fridays 9:30-11:00, and by appointment. Scheduled office hours are drop-in only.

Sometimes an unexpected scheduling complication means I have to cancel my usual office hours. When this happens I try to post an announcement on my door and on Blackboard, but this is not always possible. If you come by to see me and I’m not there when I should be, please email me and we’ll set up a specific appointment.
