Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy rests on the belief that classroom learning is best accomplished through the use of varied methods of instruction. These will include assigned readings to capture a basic understanding of course material, lecture designed to summarize, highlight, clarify and connect constructs, class discussion to question and extend learned constructs, written assignments to further insight, oral presentations and examinations to measure conceptual learning.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Class Assessment: Assessment will be based on a midterm examination, a final examination (non-comprehensive), an unscheduled/pop quiz (only one at some point during the semester), a written report/paper, and an oral presentation.
Grading: Mid Term Examination 30%
Final Examination (non-comprehensive)30%
Pop Quiz (only one) 20%
Written Report 10%
Oral Presentation 10%
Grades will be assigned as follows: 90-100% A; 80-89% B; 70-79% C; 60-69% D; Below 60% F
Late Submission of Course Materials: Late Submission of assigned course material will not be accepted, unless prior approval has been given by the instructor. Since instructor pre-approval will be given only in isolated cases, the general guideline is that late submission is unacceptable and will result in zero "0" points toward assignment(s) in question.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students are asked to adhere to conduct based on the philosophy that all individuals are unique and worthy of respect. As such, students will be expected to demonstrate repectful behaviors toward one another and toward the instructor at all times, without exception.
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.

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.
