Educational Philosophy: I believe that learning is about challenging the boundaries of your own thoughts, beliefs and ideas. I encourage active participation, dialogue and differing points of view. I fully expect that you will encounter things you disagree with and I fervently hope that you will come to look at things through many lenses as a result of our discourse.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The purpose of the literature review is for students to research a topic relevant to social psychology, formulate a research question, and conduct a literature review to address their target question. A literature review is not simply a report or an annotated bibliography; a literature review is a summary of the available information on a specific topic organized by common themes, trends or findings.

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 85Please ask and err on the side of caution. Far and away most of my students who are guilty are guilty through ignorance, not deliberation. I am happy to help and have provided some resources for your consideration in the links below.
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
