Educational Philosophy: The educational philosophy applied in this class is one of interaction among instructor and students. This interaction is accomplished through the use of PowerPoint lectures, examples, illustrative discussion questions, readings, quizzes and examinations. Identification of additional student instructional needs are also highlighted and addresses through these processes. An important part of the education process in this class will be the discussion questions provided for students together with appropriate feedback and comments from the instructor.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Policy # 1: Back up every piece of work you complete. This will ensure that a computer glitch, or a glitch out there in cyberspace won't erase your efforts.
Policy # 2: If you are experiencing any confusion over course material, technical difficulties that are not being resolved and are preventing you from completing your assignments, or general questions about the course, let me know and refer to Course Policy #1. Avoid "Dropping out" of the course communication or failure to submit assignments due to time constraints, technical problems, or confusion. If you miss class discussion for a week, you will not pass the course, unless you have communicated the nature of your absence to the instructor(s).
Policy # 3: Please check the Announcements area in the Course Conference before you ask general course questions. If you don't see your question there, then please post your question. Posting them in the threaded discussion area will allow your fellow students to benefit from your questions. And remember, there are no stupid/silly questions. We are all here to learn!
Policy # 4: (E-Mail Procedures) When sending e-mail other than assignments, you must identify yourself fully by name and class in all e-mail sent to me and/or other members of our class.
o My Response Policy: I will check my e-mail and the conference area frequently. I will respond to course-related questions within 24-48 hours (unless I notify you previously that I will be unavailable).

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
