Educational Philosophy: The facilitator’s educational philosophy is one of interactiveness
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.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Homework – Weekly homework will contain exercises derived from your
textbook to be submitted by the deadline indicated in the syllabus (usually by
the Sunday of the corresponding week). Each homework assignment contains 10 questions.
Quizzes – Each week includes 1 quiz. The weekly quiz is timed and may be submitted 3
times for a better score. The quizzes are due by 11:59 CST on Sunday of the
academic week. No late submissions are
allowed. Each quiz contains 10
Weekly Discussion – Respond
at least once to a topic for that week, and post a ‘thoughtful’ comment to
someone else's posting. Refer to
discussion thread instructions for more details on discussion requirements.
Final Exam – Complete the final exam in Week 8.
In terms of percentage, the final grade will be according to the following
90 – 100 %
80 – 89 %
70 – 79 %
< 60 %
Late Submission of Course Materials:
No late submissions and posting are
accepted for the two quizzes and the weekly discussion. These learning
activities must be completed within the online week to which they refer.
Late submission of homework may be
accepted under special circumstances.
It is unfair to other students to
allow some individuals to submit assignments after the scheduled due date. The
following is a list of valid reasons for submitting late work:
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Some helpful information about
participation in an online classroom is found in the Netiquette section
on the Help and Resources page. Click here: Netiquette
Additionally, at times we will
discuss controversial topics and have people who disagree with each other. You
and I both must remember that while each of us has a right to our own opinion,
we must respect the right of others to have differing opinions. Calling someone
or some idea "stupid" creates a defensive communication climate and
hampers the ability of all of us to learn. Think before you criticize.
If anyone in class makes a comment
you are uncomfortable with, please contact me immediately and first. Apologies
and policy changes are best handled in the classroom.
Contact me when you have questions,
concerns, or suggestions about the class. It is less frustrating for both of us
if you ask questions before the assignment is due, rather than after it has
affected your performance.
