Educational Philosophy: I am a life long learner. It is my hope that all students leave my classes with a strong desire and the skills necessary to be a life long learner in any subject that they may be interested in. I also encourage my students to use technology to their ability as a part of the learning process.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The purpose of the literature review is for students to research a topic relevant to social psychology, formulate a research question, and conduct a literature review to address their target question. A literature review is not simply a report or an annotated bibliography; a literature review is a summary of the available information on a specific topic organized by common themes, trends or findings.

Late Submission of Course Materials: Twenty percentage (20%) points will be deducted for any late assignments unless prior arrangements have been made with the instructor. Keep in mind that technology problems are not an excuse for late assignments. If you have technology problems i.e. printing etc please make other arrangements like emailing to a fellow student for printing. Keep electronic copies of all materials. All electronic copies must be received prior to 11:59 p.m. or 2359 hour.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students are expected to attend all class meetings, be punctual, and participate in class discussions. If a student is unable to complete the class attendance according to university policy, it is his/her responsibility to withdraw from the class. In cases of emergency or illness, students are to contact the instructor immediately and arrange for another student to take notes, pick up any handouts, etc. Any unexcused absence or excessive tardiness will result in lowering your grade by one full letter grade.
Argumentative and or disruptive behavior toward the instructor or other students will not be tolerated and will be dealt with according to Park Universities Student Code of Conduct. In order for all students to have opportunities for active participation in class discussions and learning activities, classmates are encouraged to be respectful to their fellow students. Allow all students time to express their ideas and positively encourage comments from others. Students must be assured that any personal information shared with classmates will be considered confidential. Allowing students to make-up a missed exam is at the option of the instructor.
The Park University Policy Statements regarding cheating and plagiarizing, will not be tolerated and will result in zero points for that assignment. The student will also be reported for code of conduct violations.
