CS492/CS692 W18 Course Structure

This page contains elaboration on the structure of the CS492/CS692 offering in Winter 2018, including sections on lectures, the marking scheme, the late policy, assignments, role-playing exercises, and plagiarism.


Lectures are scheduled for three fifty-minute slots per week (MWF 9:30-10:20 (sec2); MWF 10:30-11:20 (sec1) (QNC 1506)). The class will be run more like a discussion seminar than a standard lecture. Students are expected to do the preparatory readings (as listed in the timetable) in advance; discussion will commence using those readings as a base. The instructor may talk for five minutes here and there in order to set the stage, make a technical point, summarize, or concentrate attention. Student participation is important not only to facilitate the learning process but because marks are assessed for class participation.
