Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness, under the premise of interested students, using, for example, lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, and examinations. The instructor will seek to engage each student in learning to encourage the exploration of ideas, issues, and contradictions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
· QUIZZES Quizzes may be given at any time during the course. They are designed to provide current feedback to both the student and the instructor. Quizzes will be unannounced in advance, and there will be no quiz make-ups.
· TESTS Major tests will be given at appropriate course milestones as indicated in the course outline. These tests may require the interpretation and solution of problems. Make-up tests will be permitted only when prior arrangements are made and/or when the circumstances are explained to the instructor's satisfaction.
· FINAL EXAM May include problems as well as objective (T/F and/or MC) and essay questions, which will be comprehensive.
· HOMEWORK Homework assignments will be reviewed for credible effort and accomplishment. .
Each student will be graded on academic achievement as follows:
Your final numerical rating will be calculated based on:
Final Exam 30%
Final course letter grades will be assigned as follows:
A 89.5 - 100%
B 79.5 - 89.4%
C 69.5 - 79.4%
D 59.5 - 69.4%
E 59.4% or lower
Late Submission of Course Materials: The instructor may excuse late assignment turn-ins and absences for cogent reasons, but missed work must be made up within the term of enrollment for the assignment of a grade other than "I", incomplete.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
A credible level of effort appropriate to the course material, which may vary from student to student (e.g., time required for independent study), is expected. Students are expected to initiate communication with the instructor regarding absences, perceived deficiencies in coursework performance, etc. Park University policies regarding attendance and student conduct, which includes academic honesty, will be enforced. Submitting someone else's work as your own, for example, will not be tolerated. Penalties for violating ethical standards can include receiving an “F” for the course and suspension or expulsion from the College. On the issue of academic honesty/plagiarism Park University policies regarding academic honesty will be enforced. Academic honesty is required of all members of a learning community. Hence I will not tolerate cheating or plagiarism on tests, examinations, papers, or other course assignments. Students who engage in such dishonesty may be given failing grades or expelled from Park. Plagiarism is 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.
The following is excerpted from the 2004-2005 Park Undergraduate Catalog, page 26:
The following codes have been adopted as a structure by which Park University will function. The major emphasis in any disciplinary action is the education and development of the student for responsible citizenship and the protection of the rights of the other students to participate fully in the educational process.
