Educational Philosophy: The instructor's philosophy is based on learning through sharing information, experiences, and critical thinking. The instructor will use lecture, discussion of current events, case studies, guest speakers, assigned readings, and field trips to engage students in the understanding of public personnel administration. Students will be expected to use critical thinking to examine personnel processes and come to a greater understanding of the personnel process and the issues affecting it.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
University courses must
include a core assessment that measures Departmental Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to
determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes
across all instructional modalities. The
core assessment for this course is the Final Exam and will account for at least
20% of the total grade for the course and cover at least three of the Core
Class Assessment: The class assessment will consist of attendance, class participation, quizzes, final exam, reflection writings, an article review, and a case study.
Late Submission of Course Materials: The case study and article review may be turned in ONE DAY late with a 50% penalty (assignments are due by 11:59 on the due date). A missed quiz or final exam may be made up at the discretion of the instructor with a valid excuse. A valid excuse will need to be documented by the student to the satisfaction of the instructor. Without a valid excuse or proper documentation, the student will receive a zero. The class participation grade and attendance grade will be negatively affected by any absences. The reflection writings will be due at the beginning of class each week and will not be accepted after class starts.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students are expected to be on time and participate in discussions. Cell phones should be turned on vibrate. Students may only answer emergency calls during class. Chronic tardiness will result in a reduction of attendance and class participation points. If a student is not participating, I will let the student know that an increased amount of participation will be required to avoid losing points.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95-96
