Educational Philosophy: Learning is the result of a collaborative
interaction between teacher and student. Teachers engage in the process
by making information available, raising students' awareness of salient
points, and training in the use of skills, both mechanical and
intellectual, in as interesting and stimulating a manner as possible.
Students engage by practicing, participating, and embracing new
knowledge and skill-sets. In an atmosphere of patience, tolerance, and
respect, and with concentration on the task, anything can be learned:
even the English language.
Instructor Learning Outcomes
Late Submission of Course Materials: Late work of any kind will only be accepted under the following
conditions: valid medical reasons, accompanied by a doctor's note; in the case
of athletes or musicians, pre-scheduled games or performances. In these cases
the student must inform the instructor well beforehand in order to arrange for
either early submission or makeup assignments. Outside of these circumstances,
missed quizzes, assignments, presentations, and so on, may not be made up.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Be punctual. Turn cell phones off (they are subject to
confiscation if found in use). It is expected that you will listen to the
opinions and thoughts of others with the same respect you would like to receive
