Educational Philosophy: The educational philosophy of the instructor is one of group interaction based on a facilitative approach in which open class discussion plays an intregal part of the learning process. The course incorporates lectures, oral presentations, readings, quizzes, dialogue, final examination, internet, written assignments, educational videos, websites and broad-based research. The instructor will engage each student in disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions. Blooms Taxonomy will be utilized in assisting students to think critically (e.g., knowledge, comprehension, application, analysis, synthesis and evaluation.)

Late Submission of Course Materials: It is the student's responsibility to submit assignments to the instructor on the due date. Oral reports must be presented also on the due date. Students missing a class session are expected to submit written assignments upon returning to class, and to also have completed assignments for the current class session as well. No points will be given for assignments past due, or for oral reports not given on the assigned date. The projects, as well as, written and oral presentations, are due as assigned and on the scheduled date. There may be no opportunity to present an oral report if the student is absent on the scheduled presentation date, thus no points will be given.

Excused absences pertain only to personal illness, death in the family or occupation/work related requirements.
