Educational Philosophy: The instructor's educational philosophy allows for the fulfillment of the whole student concept. This allows for the student to learn and express ideas in an oral, individual, group, written, and examination (assessment) format. In order to effectively accomplish this students must come to class fully prepared by having completed the required readings and any other outside class assignments. In addition students learn not only from the instructor, but from fellow students. Therefore, it is extremely important students attend class and take part in any class and small group discussions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Class Assessment: Assessment tools will include a mid-term and a comprehensive final exam. The exams will constitute fill in the blank, multiply choice and short essay questions. In addition each student will be required to submit a 10 page research paper covering an approved topic in Public Management or Leadership. Finally every student will take part in a small group presentation to the class. This will help students facilitate their presentation, organization, and group interactive skills...all of which are extremely important in the world of Public Management and Leadership.
Grading: Graded Item/Points/Percent of Grade (rounded)
Late Submission of Course Materials: Unless prior arrangements have been made all late work will receive a reduction of one grade level in assessment. This is not an encouragement to submit late work, but an incentive to have work completed and submitted on time. Turning in of late work can also impact your overall class grade through reduction of attendance and participation points. Students departing on TAD, TDY, or other excused absences, approved by the instructor, should complete assignments prior to departure.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Classroom conduct consists of respect towards your instructor and fellow classmates. If you arrive late for class please feel free to come in and take a seat, however, do so with as little disruption to the class as possible. Please turn all cell phones, and any other telecommunication devices off during the class period. Refrain from side conversations while the instructor is teaching the class. Laptop computers are welcome in the classroom for note taking only. Abuse of this privilege will result in the individual involved being banned from using the laptop in class for the rest of the term.
