Educational Philosophy: Being that this is an adult learning class, I don't expect anyone to simply memorize then regurgitate the text. Our goal should be to learn together from each other. You will be graded on your level of participation. That means that you must participate in the discussions. My role is to ensure each of you participate equally, to introduce principles and practices as they apply to the subject and to help open the doors that lead to critical thinking. Your role is to know the text, be well prepared for each week’s discussions and work closely together as a team. In learning this subject it will become transparent that management principles revolve around a team effort and there's no better place to put those principles to task than this class. This is your class – make it a good one! Relax and let's have fun learning together!
