Required and Recommended Readings

Required Readings

Edit Required Readings Content
This is a skills-focused and hands-on course, and as such, the emphasis is less on reading and more on "doing" for this course. However, there is
still reading involved, as detailed on the course reading list required for this course. In cases where specific reading or preparation is needed before a workshop, I'll give you plenty of advance notice of this, and will then expect students to have completed the necessary preparation beforehand.
