Educational Philosophy: In a free and democratic society, all persons should have access to quality educational opportunities, and these opportunities should include an understanding of ethics and our responsibilities to society. The primary purpose of education is to help learners become critical thinkers, and to equip them with the skills an knowledge that will allow them to achieve their life goals. Learning environments should be active, collaborative, and should address learners with varying learning styles. We will have a classroom atmosphere of mutual respect that seeks to increase our understanding and shared appreciation of our individuality and differences. Learning activities must be relevant to learners and allow for the transfer of learning to other contexts that are meaningful to the learner.
Instructor Learning Outcomes
Late Submission of Course Materials: Late assignments will carry a 10% deduction for every day it is late. All assignments are due by the beginning of the class period.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Success in this class is SIMPLE:
S - Students are expected to read all text and supplementary readings prior to
participating in the weekly discussions.
I - Initiative is a characteristic of both successful students and successful people in
world of work. If you need help, take initiative and contact me, or form a study
group to review for tests.
M - Make homework a priority! Set aside time each week to complete your readings
and complete homework assignments early in the week. If you wait until the day
of class, if you have questions, you may not have a chance to get the help you
need before the assignment is due.
P – Prepare to be challenged! This course will expect you to learn and try new
computer applications, and to think about ways that you can apply your learning.
L - Learn and ask questions, ask questions, and ask more questions. The only way
to learn is to ask questions when you don't understand something, when you
want more clarification, when you aren't sure, etc.
E – EXPLORE!!! The best way to learn about computers and software applications is
to get hands-on and explore the different menus and options. Try different
options out and see what effect they have.
