I believe the ideal classroom is one where students add their own ideas to discussions, debate and challenge their fellow students, and actively think through the concepts being discussed. I learn so much from my students and I know they learn a lot from each other as well.
Instructor Learning Outcomes
Late Submission of Course Materials:
If an assignment is due on a night that the student is not present, it is the student's responsibility to get the assignment to the instructor on the due date. Five points will be deducted each day an assignment is late. Assignments will not be accepted after three days past the due date without prior approval from the instructor.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
3. The student is responsible for providing the instructor with justification for an excused absence, either prior to or immediately after the absence.
4. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines. Students will conduct themselves in a professional manner at all times.
5. Students are expected to respect other students' opinions and values, even if they disagree with those opinions and values.
6. There should only be one person talking at a time. Side bar conversations will not be tolerated.
7. Cell phones are not allowed to be used during class time. No texting or talking on your cell phone (except on breaks). Should you need to have access to your cell phone, please put it in vibrate and leave the room to take the necessary call.

Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2010-2011 Undergraduate Catalog Page 92
