Office hours provide a valuable opportunity for individualized teaching and learning. Please note my scheduled office hours for 2021-22:
Due to health and safety concerns related to the Covid-19 situation, please make an appointment with me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Office hours are not a substitute for class attendance, but rather a supplement. The best place to ask questions is in class; almost always, other students have similar questions in mind. If you don't ask questions, I cannot tell that you have questions. Therefore, if you have a question during class discussion, you should put up your hand and ask, rather than waiting until after class ends.
However, office hours provide a good opportunity to ask questions and seek advice outside the classroom. You should use my office hours to explore issues that you find particularly challenging or interesting, to discuss problems with either course material or study strategy. I encourage you to drop by with general or specific questions.
