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.

Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Any classroom conduct that disrupts the learning environment

crash. Students must be responsible for
planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to disk,
hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.
