Educational Philosophy: The facilitator's educational philosophy is one of involving the students in classroom time, based on prior reading and preparation for class from the textbook reading assignments and focused homework, and use of all current business news sources available, to make the textbook fundamentals more current and interesting. Emphasis and encouragement is given to exploration of new ideas, issues and contradictions, and developing a skill set that enables the student to be employable at multiple levels.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Students must read all assignments prior to class and attend all classes with the expectation to discuss the subject matter. Students are expected to be reading business news daily, which will be a required part of homework and used for class participation.
Assigned homework deserves a good faith attempt and is turned in at the beginning of the class, with credit given for effort. Homework not turned in on time cannot be made up.
One short presentation will be given by each student, and quizzes are given to keep the student caught up with the materials, along with a final quiz which will be somewhat comprehensive.
1 Quiz 20%
1 Final Quiz 20%
Short (chapter) presentation 20%
Homework, current reading and class participation 40%
All final exams will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. 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 Associate Dean.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Turn off cell phones during class time.

The homework problems will be set out in class the week before they are due. The students will also be required as part of each week's homework to bring a current business article with their one 1 page summary of the facts and the issues in the article. Some followup class time will be spent with these articles. This part of homework represents half of the homework grade.
Student presentations on each chapter are done to enhance instructor's lecture and involve students. Each chapter can be presented in 10-15 minutes, then instructor will follow up.
