Educational Philosophy: I base my teaching on the idea that my role as a teacher is to act as a guide and facilitator of learning, to be a source of knowledge (there are many other sources of knowledge), and to provide a challenging and supportive learning environment for students who are willing to learn.
An important aspect of my role as a teacher involves setting standards of achievement for my students, assessing their progress based on those standards, and providing feedback that will help them learn.
I reward students who demonstrate responsibility for their learning, who engage in critical and analytical thinking, and who seek answers to their questions by searching sources other than the standard course materials

The final examination will be taken in person during the 8th week of instruction at one of the Park University sites around the country or at an alternative location approved by your Instructor where Park University sites are not available. It will be the responsibility of the student to arrange for a proctor, by the 6th week of the term. The proctor will be accepted and approved by the instructor. The final exam will count at least 30% of the grade, and will be closed book/closed note.
Park University site administrators or adjunct faculty are preferred proctors, but K-12 school teachers, counselors or administrators, certified librarians, testing centers at accredited colleges or universities are acceptable. Approved proctors may also include U.S. Embassy officials, military education officers, or testing control officers at U.S. military bases. Excluded from approval as proctors are family members, relatives, neighbors, friends, clergy, and employers, supervisors and co-workers.
For proctored examinations, photo identification is required at the time of the test. A proctor request form will be made available to you during the first week of class so that you can send your requested proctor to me for approval. Failure to take a final proctored exam will result in an automatic loss of points assigned to the final examination.
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business and Management courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business and Management.
Assignment/test not turned in by the end of the scheduled class meeting week due will result in a 10% grade deduction. If not submitted on line during the following week, it will no longer be accepted and zero points will be awarded. The time stamp will be used to determine time of submission.
The student is responsible to either verbally communicate with the instructor or email the week before to why and assignment will be late.
If late work is associated with an "excused absence" (agreed to and granted by this instructor) makeup arrangements must be met on time or the student's submission will be classified "late". Verification will be required concerning: medical, work, or family emergencies for an excused absence.
Instructors Additional Policies
Instructors additional Policies
Any student not logging into the site, returning assignments or participating in discussions over 2 classes meetings will receive a failing grade, whether absences are excused, unexcused or in combination with tardies/partial attendance. Attendance will be determined by site access at prior to 11:59PM Sunday night of that week.
An incomplete grade will not be granted for lack of attendance or late work
Requesting an excused absence (See Late Submission)
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Professors are required to keep attendance records and report absences throughout the term. Excused absences can be granted by the instructor for medical reasons, school sponsored activities, and employment-related demands including temporary duty. The student is responsible for completing all missed work. Absences in excess of four (4) class periods (2 weeks in a term) will be reported to the Dean for appropriate action. Any student failing to attend class for two consecutive weeks, without an approved excuse, will be institutionally withdrawn (unofficially withdrawn) and notified by mail that an "F" will be recorded.
Students are expected to spend a substantial amount of time online and offline each week including but not limited to responding to the weekly conference discussions, sending/receiving Email, reading and viewing online lectures, completing online quizzes and tests, and conducting research over the World Wide Web. A rule of thumb is that you should spend approximately 4-5 hours per week online reviewing course content and engaging in group work and discussion and an additional 4-6 hours per week on readings, preparing assignments, or completing papers or examinations.
Online Current Events Discussion: A list of U.S. and foreign newspapers and periodicals is available to you in the REFERENCES area of your classroom. Use this list ONLY this week to select an article related to current world events and post a one-page review in this thread by clicking on the Respond button.
