Educational Philosophy: I believe in fostering a supportive and fun environment to promote learning and experimentation. I feel that it is important to provide the basic fundamentals to students and encourage them to push their ideas. We learn by doing and sometimes that may mean that we have to do something repeatedly before completely understanding it. It is this process of tactile connection with clay and developing ideas that can open up doors to bring a new awareness of the material and of ourselves.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Late Submission of Course Materials: Unless special arrangements are made with me beforehand, late work will be graded down 5%.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
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 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-86
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.
Park University 2007-2008 Undergraduate Catalog Page 87-88My attendance policy is as follows...I will take attendance at the beginning of class. If you know that you will be absent ahead of time, be sure to email me before class in order to receive an excused absence. If you will be late be sure to call the studio phone number.
You are allowed four absences before your grade will started to be affected. Additional absences beyond the 4 that you are allowed will result in a 1% deduction to your final grade. I will accept doctor's notes, plane ticket stubs, etc. to give exused absences. Arriving late or leaving early will also be noted. Two of these instances is the equivalent to one absence.
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. 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.
