Educational Philosophy: My approach to teaching involves the integration of lectures, readings, quizzes along with my experiences to expose students to a variety of media and materials. Students are encouraged to share their experiences and ideas to facilitate a positive learning environment.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park Universitycourses must include a core assessment tool that measures the degree to whichstudents learn the course's learning outcomes. School policy dictates that astudent's performance on the core assessment tool must count for at least 20%of the student's total course grade. For this course, the tool consists of thefinal exam. Therefore, the final exam must count for at least 20% of thestudent's total course grade (preferably, it will count for more). Schoolpolicy dictates that the core assessment tool must cover at least 75% of acourse's learning outcomes. To ensure compliance, instructors must include thefollowing types of questions in the final exam:
Type 1: The studentwill be required to solve a series of problems by applying mathematicalprinciples (arithmetic/Boolean algebra)
Atleast 6 problems that are representative of the above types.
Relevantlearning outcomes: 1, 2
Type 2: The studentwill be able to explain/define some of the items described in LO #4
Atleast 6 questions that are representative of the above types.
