Design: Design is both creative and meticulous. It is a process that involves generating ideas, then editing and refining those ideas before producing the final result. The steps in the design process are universal and can be applied to any design problem, whether it is a written document, the design of a space or the design of a product.
Teaching: As a teacher I articulate what I have learned as a professional, sharing my accumulated knowledge and skills with the students. This information is the basis for a variety of activities that reinforce core learning objectives. Students observe, evaluate, collaborate and create as they approach each assignment as a design problem. Students communicate design concepts visually and orally using drawing, drafting, board building and modeling techniques.

Late Submission of Course Materials:
Late work will not be accepted without a legitimate written excuse attached. Late work must be turned in (with excuse attached) by the beginning of the next scheduled class or the assignment grade will be lowered 5%. An additional 5% subtracted for each class period that the work is late. Many assignments have an oral presentation component. There will be no make up dates for missed presentations, and regardless of excuse, the student will not recieve points for the presentation component of the assignment.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
AR292A is a studio class. The design studio class provides a group setting where students learn by individual as well as group experiences. Group interaction speeds learning and increases the depth of study for all. Feedback from the instructor is an important element of learning. Class periods include lecture/demonstration, discussion and group critiques of work, as well as time to practice visual communications skills and techniques. Students are expected to come to class with tools and supplies, prepared to work in class. In addition, students are expected to work a minimum of two hours outside of class for every hour in class. The studio and computer lab will be available for students' use when it is not scheduled for other classes.
A professional and respectful attitude toward the instructor and fellow students is expected. Tardiness, leaving before class is dismissed, and other class disruptions (i.e. phone calls, etc.) will be noted and reflected in the final grade.
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. Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-86
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. Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-88INSTRUCTOR'S ATTENDANCE POLICY
Class attendance is required. An attendance sheet will be passed around at the beginning of each class while announcements are being made. It is the student's responsibility to sign the attendance sheet at this time. Students who do not sign the attendance sheet, but arrive after it is distributed, will be considered late. Three late arrivals will equal one absence.
In case of illness or emergency, the instructor must be notified prior to class by sending an e-mail message. Each student will be allowed three absences, which, if proper notification is sent, will be recorded as "excused." Thus each of the following will result in a 5% deduction from the final grade:
1. Three "tardies" equalling one unexcused absence.
2. Any absence that is not excused by a written (e-mail)notification.
3. The fourth and each subsequent absence, regardless of excuse.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
