Educational Philosophy: The facilitator’s educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, videos, web sites and writings. The facilitator will engage each learner in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The final exam for FI 201 will be the assessment tool used for this course. The exam will be comprehensive and the grade used to determine competency levels achieved by the students. The exam will be closed book and closed notes. The exam consists of multiple choice questions covering the chapter readings in the course and problems that examine the critical thinking, effective communication skills and technical skills of the student. Partial credit will be given for the problems.
Various methods of enhancing and measuring the student learning process are utilized.
These include the following:
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business and Management courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business and Management.
Due to the accelerated nature of the course, it is strongly suggested that the student submit assignments on time. If, for some reason that student will be late in turning in a particular assignment; the student should seek prior approval from the instructor.
A major consideration for the timely submission of materials is that - answer keys and solution sets to selected problems are presented and open for class discussion after the item is due. If, for some reason a student is late in turning in assignments, this "lateness" can thwart the enhancement of the class learning feedback process by holding up the dissemination of the course answer keys and solutions sets. With this is mind, it is strongly suggested that the student be proactive in submitting course materials.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
It is expected that students conduct themselves in a professional manner with respect for the student themselves, their classmates and the instructor. Any deviation from this policy will result in first a warning by the instructor. Then if further instances occur, a reporting of said conduct to the proper Academic authority within the student's campus center. Judgement will be exercised by the instructor within the parameters of Park Universities policies.
Week One is section one. Week 2 will cover section 2. Week 3 will cover section 3. Week 5 will cover section 4. Week 6 will cover section 5 and Week 7 will cover section 6. This gives us Week 8 for the project and final. Week 4 for the midterm.
