Welcome to ENG 319-001: Document Design

Welcome to ENG 319-001: Document Design with Dr. Jeremy Tirrell. This is a hybrid course, which means that ordinarily we will have one period in our classroom (on Thursdays from 12:30pm–1:45pm in BR 202) and one period online. Hybrid courses require more online interaction and self-governance than standard sections.

The course flows through this website, so it is crucial that you thoroughly familiarize yourself with it. Because much of your work will be independent, you should pay particular attention to the Calendar page, as it articulates the schedule of activities and provides links to corresponding materials. Additionally, the Home page collects updates and news that you should know, the Syllabus page describes course policies, the Assignments page contains information about course projects and ancillary work, the Handbook discusses course concepts, and the Links page collects useful resources on the Web.

Again, welcome to the course! I hope you find it challenging and rewarding. If you have any questions, feel free to email me through tirrellj@uncw.edu.
