Educational Philosophy: It is the facilitator's philosophy that the student should be able to take lessons taught in class and apply them to real world situations. This class will be structured as such through lectures, readings in addition to the text, two-way dialogue and the sharing of personal experiences as they relate to the material covered in class.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: Examinations will be in the form of three exams covering the core concepts of each chapter. The final exam will retest essential concepts of the class but focus on the chapters not yet tested. Homework will also be key to the learning process as this will entail exercises to be completed outside the classroom as well as weekly submission of a written critical review covering an accounting business topic found in a reputable periodical.
