Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, videos, web sites and writings. I believe in engaging each learner in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues, and contradictions.

Finding a Proctor - You must follow the Park University procedures for obtaining an approved proctor. Please refer to the Help and Resources page (http://captain.park.edu/cd/oshr/Pages/proctor.aspx) to review the requirements for locating a proctor and the procedure for completing a Proctor Request Form. For proctored examinations, photo identification is required at the time of the test. Park provides access to the proctor request form during the first week of class so that you can send your requested proctor to your instructor for approval. It will be the responsibility of the student to arrange for a proctor, accepted and approved by the course instructor, by the 6th week of the term. Approval of non-Park proctors is at the sole discretion of the online instructor.
