Anonymous Feedback

At least one of the instructors of this course is a fan of anonymous feedback, which is available through Collab.

The feedback is really truly anonymous; there is no way we can find out who posted it, so posting things like you misgraded my homework there will not be effective.

Please respect the fact that our TAs are also students in other classes, with assignments and so on of their own, and limit your 3330-related contact with them to the times they have scheduled to act as TAs.

Unless they tell you otherwise, use Piazza to contact them (and make your post visible to all course staff, not just one or two of them).

3.1 Office Hours

All professor office hours are open, meaning we will not close the door and have a private conversation during office hours. If you have sensitive matters to discuss, please email your professor to set up a separate time to visit about them.
