Educational Philosophy: I believe learning should be an enjoyable, challenging exxperience. I try to bring real world experiences to the class room. I try to bring excitement to learning by various approaches and grading criteria producing successful students. The facilitator's educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, special projects and writings. The facilitator will engage each learner in what is referred to as disputational learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues, and contradictions. I encourage students to call me at home whenever they need help.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: Students are required to read all assigned material prior to class.Homework will be completed prior to class and will be reviewed during class. Complete a database project to demonstrate knowledge of the concepts covered in class. There will be quizzes, a midterm and final exam. Assign a sufficient amount of homework and lab projects such that all the above objectives are met. Exams will include one or more of: Short answers, multiplechoice, True/False, and completion.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Homework must be turned in at the beginning of class on the day it is due. The date due will be annotated at the beginning of each assignment. Late homework will be accepted at the start of the next class meeting but will incur a 7 point (out of 100) reduction in score. The instructor will accept late assignments if extenuating circumstances exist.Late homework will not be accepted after a week past the due date and will receive an automatic zero for that assignment.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students must read all assigned chapters for that night prior to that scheduled class meeting. Students are expected to be well prepared to discuss examples and assignments provided at the end of each chapter or handed out by the instructor. Students are expected to come to all classes and be on time. Classes missed for legitimate reasons: illnesses, death in the family, work assignments, temporary duty are excusable. The student s responsible for providing the instructor a reason for the excused absence either prior to or immediately after the absence.
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.
