Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational and teaching philosophy is one of partnership with students to accomplish a mutually agreed goal of learning. To accomplish this goal, the instructor serves as an active "agent" to orchestrate ways to facilitate open and free communications; coordinate students' effort to meet course objectives; and to provide a healthy, learning environment to give each student the freedom to learn and grow. Prior to each class, the instructor will provide a detailed course outline of major are of interests for each chapter, followed with a copy of power point lecture slides. During class, students will be asked to summarize major concepts, ideas or issues brought out in the lecture as well as participating in small working groups. In summary, th instructor will integrate class lecture, power point slides, examinations and group discussions and Core Assessment assignment to meet course objectives.
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.
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Late Submission of Course Materials: The instructor will not accept assignments late unless for documented, excused reasons. Unexcused reasons for late submission of assignments will receive a grade of "zero." There will be NO make up sessions or tests for unexcused absences. The student must make every effort to contact the instructor as soon as possible to make up missed assignments/tests.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Class participation and appropriate classroom behavior is expected and attendance taken for each class. Class missed for legitimate reasons such as TDY, personal and medical emergencies are excusable but the student will need to coordinate with the instructor (e.g. email or phone call) as soon as possible to make up missed assignments.
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.
