Educational Philosophy: My main objective as an educator is to provide opportunities for students to learn and express themselves in many creative ways. I don't teach as much as I facilitate your learning. I'll make suggestions, offer some guidance, and (yes) make some assignments. But, the learning is entirely up to you. Students in my classes are expected to express themselves in creative ways, while gaining skills and knowledge. Learning is a life-long process and should not end with formal education. Students learn in many different ways and I work to provide opportunities for divergent learning styles in the classroom. Technology is a tool that must be accompanied by sound educational practices for its use to be successful.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Tentative list of Assignments

Late Submission of Course Materials: Late assignments will not be accepted for credit unless arrangements have been made in advance with the instructor. Full or partial credit may be awarded at the discretion of the instructor depending on the circumstances that resulted in the assignment being turned in late.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
All assignments and lab projects are to be computer generated.
Students must recognize that technology can create problems such as printers that run out of ink or 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 a disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes. Technology malfunctions do not excuse late assignments.
When absences do occur, you must inform your instructor through email in order to receive an excused absence. It is your responsibility to obtain and turn in the work missed.
All assignments and lab projects are to be computer generated. I will not accept hand written assignments unless I specifically ask for them.
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.

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.

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

These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply.
