Educational Philosophy: Teaching empowers both the teacher and the student to learn and grow from each others knowledge and experience. It is an interactive activity that encourages resourcefulness, respect and responsibility in the quest for new knowledge. Teaching is not a one sided act, but requires both a leader and a follower. The ability to generate excitement in the student for the topic at hand is the reward for teaching well.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
For this course, the core assessment is a Comprehensive Final Examination to be administered in all sections of MG 354. This exam is worth at least 30 percent of the student's final grade and will test students' mastery of the Core Learning Outcomes (as listed on this syllabus) through definitions, essay, and/or multiple choice questions.
This core assessment is a CLOSED BOOK, CLOSED NOTES comprehensive examination that must be administered and proctored in the classroom and may not be given as a take-home examination. Students should not have access to the exam or its questions before it is administered. The duration of the exam can be no longer than two hours.
No computers, or materials other than a writing instrument and a calculator without text functions and communication may be used for the exam; this applies to all students, regardless of whether the exam is for on-line or face-to-face students. Completion of the exam is strictly individual; students may not work in groups to complete the exam.
