Typically, I ask students to submit their favorite songs in order to create a Spotify playlist to play during lab times. With distance learning, this has changed slightly: students were asked to submit a YouTube video link to their favorite song, and I add a random music video to the end of every recorded lecture. The full playlist for all 3 of my Fall 2020 DTC classes is at right.
