As part of the course participation in this course, you will be required to participate in a series of discussion assignments related to readings in the course. The reading homework/discussion assignments should NOT be a summary of the main ideas and findings in the readings. Rather, your discussion (750 min. – 1,000 words max.) should focus on the implications of the main points of the readings or notes (Please see schedule below for discussions and review each set of power point notes for various discussion questions to answer). With respect to discussions focused on the main points of the reading assignments, you could consider discussing: what do they make you wonder about? What lines of inquiry might they open up regarding facility management or how do they connect to facility management notes you are provided by me? How do the readings relate to each other and to readings from previous weeks, if applicable? How do the readings connect to your career field and aspirations? Again, I want to stress this is not a summary activity but a critical thinking exercise.
