Educational Philosophy: As a Graphic Design teacher, my principal objective is to expand student's design competency. In accomplishing this goal, I rely on a variety of skills including:• Building relationships of trust with students;• Possessing a high degree of competency and knowledge in course material;• Understanding the course material knowledge level of my students; and• I believe that a teacher must encourage and allow students to take responsibility for their own learning accomplishments

Class Assessment: Class participation, projects and quizzes will be used as evaluation methods in the percentages listed. No make-up quizzes will be given. No late projects will be accepted.

Late Submission of Course Materials: There are no excused absences. The accumulation of more than four absences will result in the student's failure for the class. Class critiques are part of the completion of each assigned project. Students who fail to attend a critique will lose one letter grade on the project. With a Doctor's note you may submit your project, make up your in class assignment or take the written test. But you will receive one grade lower as a final grade for submitting it late as per the class policy.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive. Learners must recognize though that technology may also cause problems. Printers run out of ink and hard drive crash. Learners must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to zip disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.
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 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-89Academic Honesty is required of all members of a learning community. Hence, Park will not tolerate cheating or plagiarism on tests, examinations, papers, or other course assignments. Learners who engage in such dishonesty may be given failing grades or expelled from Park.
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2006-2007 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87Plagiarism – the appropriation or imitation of the language or ideas of another person and presenting them as one's original work—sometimes occurs through carelessness or ignorance. Students who are uncertain about proper documentation of sources should consult their instructors.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
