Educational Philosophy: We will use outside resources such as lectures, readings, and actual case studies. Each student
will be expected to obtain an understanding of the overall theory and applications of supervision and administration of personnel. The instructor will engage each learner in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues, and contradictions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Students will write a case study during week 7 of an 8 week course and week 15 of a 16 week course.

The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business.
Late submission of any home work or test will be accepted with a valid reason for the lateness. It will lose 10% points on its total grade however.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Cell Phones MUST be turned off during class time.
Textbook chapters assigned will be expected to have been read to facilitate class room discussion.
Home work will be expected weekly. If Home work is not complete,points will be lost on home work, along with point reduction on class participation, as without the homework being complete, class participation will be reduced.
