Educational Philosophy: The facilitator's educational philosophy is based on being interactive with both the instructor and other students in the class. Learning is based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, videos, web sites and writings. The facilitator will engage each learner in what is referred to as disputatius learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Test and Case Study
Class Assessment: Mid term and final examinations, quizzes, 1-2 page paper, class participation, and discussion/comprehensive questions.

Mid Term 22
Final Exam 25
Total 100 points
The comprehensive final is not a take-home test.

Late Submission of Course Materials: Late submission of required assignments will result in a zero for that assignment unless previously discussed with the instructor and is the result of an emergency.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Open and active discussion is highly encouraged and required for participation points. Although disagreements and open discussion is encouraged for critical thinking, do not degrade the person making the input. Rather, focus on the subject and the opinion rather than the person. Simple awareness of this being adult learning should be all that needs to be mentioned.
