The Zoom meeting link will be the same for both days.  At the beginning of the course, a waiting room will be set up to allow all participants and faculty to enter at one time.  Participants will be muted upon entry. We request all participants and faculty to keep their cameras off during the streaming sessions. Faculty will turn their videos on for participation in the panel discussions and live Q&A.  Participants will be asked to “raise their Hand” using the “Raise Hand” icon in zoom to ask a question.  The Course directors will call on the student to unmute and ask the question live.
