The instructor’s overarching approach to education is to emphasize the broadening of intellect as a strategy for developing problem solving and critical thinking skills. It is essential to integrate the knowledge, skills, and abilities developed in the classroom into the active lives of students, both as individuals and as members of social groups. It is not the facts we learn, but how we use them that provides us with the tools needed to better the human condition.
The instructor will use lectures, class discussions, group activities, handouts, supplementary readings, audio-visual aids, examinations, case studies, and other methods to facilitate learning. Student performance expectations:
1. The instructor assumes the student has read and understands the syllabus and expects students to ask questions if any aspect of the course requirements is unclear.
2. Students are expected to demonstrate that they are meeting the course objectives by attending class; actively participating in class discussions, activities, and exercises; timely submitting all written assignments; delivering required oral presentations; and sitting for any scheduled examinations.
3. Students are assigned readings from the required text(s) and/or supplemental text materials in advance of each class meeting and are expected to be prepared for class.
4. Students are expected to ask questions if they do not understand something.
5. The instructor encourages a mutual learning environment, where students can freely raise questions in the search for understanding. Students are expected to listen to each other, ask questions, raise concerns, and provide the respect that each individual deserves. Students are also encouraged to bring any items to class which they feel will add substantially to the learning environment.
