Educational Philosophy: I
will use brevity to describe my philosophy for this particular
course. I feel learning should be enjoyable/fun and possess certain
ingredients, which will challenge students each week. We will
accomplish this through the following methods: Weekly threaded
discussions will serve as our means to discuss issues and interact with
each other. I believe that a healthy level of weekly discussion will
make the course enjoyable and provide valuable insight to one
another. Homework (journal article reviews) will serve as an additional measurement to keep
everyone current and up-to-date with the course. The final exam will
evaluate your understanding of the material and provide a logical
conclusion for the course. The core assessment research culminates many of the learning aspects gained from all of the core learning objectives. I expect everyone to therefore enjoy the
next eight weeks and leave the course feeling challenged with a
significant grasp of Security Administration.

Each review is expected to be between 1,000 and 1,250 words typed.

Your submission should cover the major theory or thesis, research methodology and population studied (if any), major arguments or points of view, findings or conclusions, and major issues. It should also include a critique of the author’s work and its implications and usefulness for security managers and administrators. APA Style guidelines will be adhered to in all respects.
