My educational philosophy is one of interaction of all learners based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, websites and writings. My philosophy will engage each learner in what is referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of ideas, statistical concepts, issues and contradictions.
Students are expected to come to class prepared (i.e., read and review assigned textbook and supplemental material and complete assigned projects).
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. For this course, the core assessment is a final exam to be administered in all sections of EC 315. This exam is worth 30 percent of the student’s final grade and will test students’ mastery of core learning outcomes through short answer questions on specific knowledge, Regression analysis procedure, and hypothesis testing.
