Educational Philosophy:

As a Graphic Design teacher, my principal objective is to expand student's design competency. In accomplishing this goal, I rely on a variety of skills including

• Understanding the course material knowledge level of my students; and

• I believe that a teacher must encourage and allow students to take responsibility for their own learning accomplishments.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive.  Learners must recognize though that technology may also cause problems.  Printers run out of ink and hard drive crash.  Learners must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to zip disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.

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.   Park University 2008-2009 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87

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. Park University 2009-2010 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92
