Getting Help

The best way to contact course staff is through the course Slack workspace. If you have not already, please join our Slack workspace. See a TA if you missed the invitation link.

Come to office hours! We love to help! :-)

Office hours are a time when you can visit the instructor personally. You can use that time to talk about anything that is important to you, from help on an assignment to advice about school or employment to discussing personal challenges or learning more about the instructor’s own experiences.

You do not typically need to schedule with the instructor if you are going to his or her office during posted office hours. Just show up! If you have a more personal or urgent issue you would like to discuss, you can message your instructor on Slack to set up a time to meet privately.

Office hours give you the opportunity to create a more personal relationship with your instructor. These relationships give a foundation for future letters of recommendation and other forms of professional networking.

Talk to each other! Learning from each other is a core part of the course.

The Slack space is for you. Feel free to talk together on Slack about how to understand the material. Just don’t cheat! See the course syllabus for guidance.

Message us!

If you are unable to make it to office hours, or you work better via online interactions, ask a question in a Slack channel or direct message (DM) us on Slack.

Contact instructors if: You have logistical questions or concerns, you are still struggling after you have talked with the TAs, or you have experienced an unwelcoming environment in the class.

Contact TAs if: You need help with any of the course content or assignments.
