Be a successful student

Your role is to come to class prepared. Read the assigned material before class and complete your assignments on time. Be ready to participate in class discussions.
You’re encouraged to ask questions. The only wrong question is the one not asked.
Never miss class; take advantage of the most valuable and productive learning time. Take good notes, participate in class, and always ask when you’re confused. Stay attentive and aware — no texting, and stay off of Facebook and Twitter :)

Practice class lessons immediately after each session. And then practice, practice, and practice some more.
Find a classmate to work with and bounce your ideas off of. As a designer, you need to get feedback from others. Students thrive when they learn together.
You’re not “given” a grade in this class, you earn a total number of points. These points should reflect what you’ve learned. The points you earn will determine your grade.
Schedule a time to see me during office hours. This is a great time for me to answer your questions in more depth. Also, seek your instructor’s advice on getting to your future goals.
