Educational Philosophy: Instruction in the classroom will be interactive based on lectures, facilititation, readings, writings, student participation, and examples of personal and professional experiences relative to material being discussed. Individual and group analyses and presentations of case studies are required.

Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Learning will be assed via classroom participation, examinations, papers, and presentations. Assigned readings must be completed before each class to facilitate discussion. A mid-term worth 100 points(40% of grade), a final worth 100 points(50% of grade) and individual paper and presentation(10% of grade) are required to obtain a final grade for the course. ALL EXAMINATIONS WILL BE CLOSED BOOK.
THE EIGHT(8) CORE LEARNING OUTCOMES will be covered in general during the first five weeks of the course. During weeks six and seven specific emphasis will be provided in the form of presentations and lectures using the basic text, case studies from the text, and supplemental materials such as current publications and/or text books(from the Park University approved list of text books) that speak to these learning outcomes. The FINAL EXAM will test each students ability to define, list, explain and/or identify each of the core learning outcomes.
Upon completion of this course, each student's ability to "think critically" should be sufficently enhanced.
Grades will be determined on the percentages indicated above. The following scale will apply:
A=100-90; B=89-80; C=79-70; D=69-60; F=59 and below
Late Submission of Course Materials: Assignments not submitted on the due dates will receive a grade of "zero."
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students may use pen or pencil when taking examinations. Term papers must be typed in double-spaced format. Computers, projectors and calculators may be used when working computations during examinations or when making presentations. Computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive. Students must recognize that technology can also cause problems. Printers run out of ink and hard drives crash. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.
