Educational Philosophy: Over the years, my role as a teacher has evolved from being a giver of knowledge to being a facilitator. My main objective is to recognize students as individuals and help each one become a motivated self-sufficient learner who is able to evaluate information critically. Students in my classes are expected to learn course concepts and skills, internalize it, then transfer and apply it, in new and different situations. Providing some structure allows students to be in charge of their inquiry and prepares them to be the “life-long learners” described in the objectives of every educational institution today. Finally, I believe that technology is a tool. Educated people should recognize the need to control technology and use it for the betterment of society.

Classroom Rules of Conduct: All students are expected to follow the rules for acceptable conduct and good manners. Any student, who does not adhere to these guidelines will be excused from class and reported to the proper authorities.
· GRADING PLAN: A schedule will be furnished the first day of class listing the required assignments and due dates. The instructor reserves the right to add/delete/substitute assignments as dictated by unforseen circumstances that may arise.
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.

Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 89-90The instructor must be notified in advance of any absences due to sports events, planned medical tests or operations, or family matters (i.e. court dates). Students who are ill may be asked to furnish an excuse for their absence from class.
ATTENDANCE will be taken every class period. There is a daily signup sheet at the front of the room for attendance records. EVERY student is expected to sign in and attend every class. Any student who doesn't sign in has not attended the class! Attendance will count in assessing your grade. Do not leave class early or you will be counted absent. AAny student with more than 3 unexcused absences during the term will automatically have his/her grade lowered one letter grade.

These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities.
