It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it. (Aristotle)
Educational Teaching Philosophy:
I enjoy augmenting the textbook material with real life experiences and current events to promote the transference of concepts to the real world. Discussion of ethical issues in decision-making is also important.
I think of each of you as a potential co-worker one day. From that vantage point, not only should you have a good grasp of the materials, but adequate and timely communication skills, honesty, and the ability to work with others. Give your best effort in the classroom, just as you would at your job. If you are struggling in any way, the sooner you let me know, the quicker we can address it and make your learning experience a positive one. If you have been out of school for a while, don’t worry. You still have what it takes to do well in class.
If unforeseen situations come up, let me know as soon as you know and I will try to work with you. Treat your class work no differently than your job. Bring up problems promptly and don’t be afraid to let me know if you could use a little additional guidance in becoming competent with the materials presented. We all learn differently. Not right or wrong, just differently. What you need to understand the material in one class may be different than another class.
Our course’s cognitive core learning outcomes will be based on:
Ø Knowledge of the facts, terminology, and methods
Ø Comprehension and understanding of the conceptual information
Ø Application of the information in specific situations
Ø Analysis of the organizational structure in specific situations
Ø Synthesis involving creative applications of your knowledge and skills, and
Ø Evaluation of the relative value of the information

Academic Honesty:As a learning community, the University upholds the highest standards of academic integrity in all its academic activities, by faculty, staff, administrators and students. Academic integrity involves much more than respecting intellectual property rights. It lies at the heart of learning, creativity, and the core values of the University. Those who learn, teach, write, publish, present, or exhibit creative works are advised to familiarize themselves with the requirements of academic integrity and make every effort to avoid possible offenses against it, knowingly or unknowingly. Park University 2010-2011 Graduate Catalog Page 20
Plagiarism involves the appropriation of another person's ideas, interpretation, words (even a few), data, statements, illustration or creative work and their presentation as one's own. An offense against plagiarism constitutes a serious academic misconduct. Although offenses against academic integrity can manifest themselves in various ways, the most common forms of offenses are plagiarism and cheating. Plagiarism goes beyond the copying of an entire article. It may include, but is not limited to: copying a section of an article or a chapter from a book, reproduction of an art work, illustration, cartoon, photograph and the like and passing them off as one's own. Copying from the Internet is no less serious an offense than copying from a book or printed article, even when the material is not copyrighted.
Plagiarism also includes borrowing ideas and phrases from, or paraphrasing, someone else's work, published or unpublished, without acknowledging and documenting the source. Acknowledging and documenting the source of an idea or phrase, at the point where it is utilized, is necessary even when the idea or phrase is taken from a speech or conversation with another person.

Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and report absences. Excused absences can be granted by the instructor, for medical reasons, school sponsored activities, and employment-related demands, including temporary duty. Students are responsible for any missed work. Absences for two successive weeks, without approved excuse, will be reported to the Director of the individual graduate program, or to the Executive Director for the Graduate School, for appropriate action. Students with such a record of absences, without an approved excuse, may be administratively withdrawn from the class and notified that an "F" will be recorded, unless the student initiates official withdrawal from the class(es).Park University 2010-2011 Graduate Catalog Page 24
