Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy is to integrate class lectures, power point slides, examinations, group exercises and review of current research to expand understanding of human behavior, individual/cultural diversity, major psychological concepts and introduction of critical thinking to encourage active learning. The instructor will engage each student in a myraid of role playing exercises and group activities to apply learning concepts, promote critical thinking, and to integrate principles in a CORE Assessment Position Paper.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Position Paper- Controversial Topic
The purpose of this critical thinking assignment is to examine both sides of a controversial issue, select a position, apply it to a multicultural context, and to apply the Park University General Education literacies: aesthetic, civic, critical, science, and values. Two of these literacies (critical and values) are perceived to cut across disciplines and departments, while the other three (aesthetic, civic, and scientific) literacies address major academic concerns. Students with these literacies should be able to succeed in communicating, computing and problem-solving, clarifying values, using the arts, functioning within social institutions, and using the sciences and technology.
