The facilitator’s educational philosophy is one of interactiveness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, videos, web sites and writings. The facilitator will engage each learner in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, issues and contradictions. As a racially and internationally diverse student body, class discussion is an important resource, and rules of courtesy will be observed at all times. Attendance and participation are very significant to the overall education process, and will make up a part of the grade. The instructor will begin this course of study with the assumption that the students has had little experience within this area of study. Reading of the text prior to the class is encouraged, and different forms of assessment with facilitate this.
