Metody i kryteria oceniania:


1. You have to attend class. No matter what the reason is, you may skip only 2 meetings after the introduction class.

2. You have to be prepared, that is, be familiar with assigned readings and ready for the discussion. I don’t expect you’ll understand every assigned reading immediately, but I require that you’ll give a try.

3. Don’t raise your hand in class. I expect you to speak up when you have something interesting and contributing to say, but don’t speak over anyone and respect the opinions of others.

4. This is a media and communication course and you are expected to communicate and use digital media appropriately. Media misuse (texting, emailing) will rule you out of class.

5. You can contact me during my office hours (and by appointment) and via email (wojtkowski@umk.pl).


1. Participation in the discussion (10 points): active class participation and familiarity with readings
