Course Description:
Lighting will be considered within the framework of the mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems of a building. Students will study the technical, aesthetic and psychological aspects of lighting in an environment. Principles of lighting design and selection will be applied to the selection of luminaries and lighting sources. Lighting design competencies will be applied to a co-requisite studio design project. CO-REQUISITES:AR397A andAR397B 3:0:3

Educational Philosophy:

The instructor's educational philosophy is one of lectures, reading, site observations, examinations, hands-on evaluation of equipment, discussion, and individual design projects. 

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Evaluate an interior space and establish goals for lighting the space.
  2. Calculate lighting level requirements.
  3. Develop a lighting scheme and layout.
  4. Select and specify light fixtures and associated lamping.
  5. Design lighting for a space in the context of associated mechanical and electrical components.
  6. Successfully incorporate quality lighting into interior design by applying lighting principles to a design project.


Core Assessment:
  • Test covering text and related reading, lectures, and discussions  (outcomes 1-5)
  • Completion of assignments and reports (outcomes 1-5)
  • Completion of space evaluations (outcome 1)
  • Completion of core assessment project: design and documentation of lighting for the office design project completed in concurrent AR397B (outcomes 1-6)

Class Assessment:

Class attendance, homework exercises, examinations, and final project.

Grading:

Attendance - 10%
Exam 1 - 20%
Exam 2 - 20%
Exam 3 - 10%
Homework - 20%
Final Project - 20%

Late Submission of Course Materials:

The instructor will receive late assignments (if notified in advance) but the grade for that assignment will be reduced due to late submision.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:

The student will be required to have the assigned textbook and a calculator.  The student will be required to attend class, read text assignments prior to class, participate in classroom discussions, complete the homework assignments, complete the design project(s), and complete the examinations.  Occasionally, the student will be asked to evaluate a particular space(s) and write a short paragraph of their observations for the following week.  The class will take one field trip during the semester, if schedules permit.
 
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 disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.

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.   Park University 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "F".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
