Educational Philosophy: I believe in education, not indoctrination. Normally I will not discuss my opinions but if I do, you may disagree and still make an "A."
This is not primarily an opinion course but rather one which involves tools for analysis. Endeavor to seek truth through objective analysis even if it contradicts opinions that are popular in our society and opinions that you may have held for most of your life.
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 141. This exam is worth 30 percent of the student’s final grade and will test students’ mastery of core learning outcomes through short essay Tools and Methods of Economics questions, Graphical Problems in he Communications section, and Critical Thinking short-answer questions. For each core learning outcome, the student should be prepared to draw the relevant graph, define basic concepts or policies, identify relevant shifts in the curves, and state final impacts on relevant variables.
