Note: the week of Monday March 23 (which would have been week 5) is now a teaching break, because #covid19. So now week 5 starts on March 30, then there’s the 2-week teaching break as usual, then week 6 starts on April 20 and we’ll have a 7-week second half of the semester. I’ve updated all the assessment submission dates on this website accordingly. I know it’s confusing—soz—so if you have any questions hit us up on slack.
