Students are expected to treat their classroom obligations as they would any professional engagement. In addition to taking responsibility for information shared during the instructor's lecture, students will:
1. Arrive promptly for class. Class attendance is part of your class participation, which is a portion of your overall grade. Roll will be checked="checked"="checked="checked""="checked="checked"="checked="checked""" at the beginning of each class period and after each break.
2. Excused absences will be granted at the instructor's discretion.
3. Computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive. Students must recognize though that technology can also cause problems. Printers run out of ink and hard drives crash. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to a disk, a flash drive, a hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.
4. Prepare and take part in class discussions of assigned readings and exercises. This means that you have to read the assigned readings and are prepared to discuss them during class. This course will consist of class discussion, small group discussion, group work, video clips, and lecture.
5. Assigned readings will not always be reviewed in class, but examinations will be from both assigned readings and class/group discussion.
6. Adhere to deadlines and timetables established by the instructor.
