Educational Philosophy: 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.
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 142. This exam is worth 30 percent of the student’s final grade and will test students’ mastery of core learning outcomes through Multiple Choice, Tools and Methods of Economics questions, Quantitative Critical Thinking Problems, and Graphical Problems in the Communications section. For each core learning outcome, the student should be prepared to draw the relevant graph; define basic concepts or policies; determine costs, revenue and profit levels; and state final impacts on the individual, firm, and/or industry.
