Course Policies

Attendance: Much of the learning that occurs in a seminar happens in the classroom, so it’s essential that you be present in order to participate fully. All students are allowed two absences during the term for illness or personal leave; there’s no need to contact me or provide excuses as long as you stay within this two-class limit. Missing your third class without a documented excuse (such as a doctor’s note) will result in a half-grade penalty to your final grade (e.g. If you have an “A” and miss 3 classes your grade would automatically drop to a “A-”).

Grades: You can find information about the UVA scale for “ENWR Grading” here.

Assistance: Your success in this class is important to me. If there are any circumstances that may affect your performance in this class, please let me know as soon as possible so we can work together to develop strategies that address your needs and enable you to meet the requirements of the course. I am always happy to assist you in any way I can. If you are in need of official university learning accommodations, please email the Student Disability Access Center at You can also find information about CAPS (Counseling and Psychological Services) by visiting their website. To set up an appointment, call 434-243-5150 or stop by the Student Health Center located at 400 Brandon Ave.

Academic Integrity: Because this course is based on playgiarism, it’s nearly impossible to cheat. We will be talking about the ethics of sampling and citation all semester long, so what is not acceptable should become very clear to you well before the first graded assignment. However, I’m always happy to answer specific questions about your work as they come up. If you are unsure about what constitutes academic fraud at UVA, see the Honor Committee’s statement here.


Additional Info

Clemons Media Library: This is a great place to go to talk to staff who have training in audio and video editing programs. You can set up individual consultations (we will be doing a group workshop on video editing at Clemons, too). You can also reserve rooms for group projects (like “UVA Remixed”). I highly recommend familiarizing yourself with the available resources at Clemons.

Writing Center: The Writing Center, located in 314 Bryan Hall, provides experienced tutors who will work with you individually by discussing drafts of your projects in detail. You can set up an appointment or check availability using the online scheduler.
