It’s my duty as your instructor to ensure students enrolled in an online course receive the same “educational value” as those enrolled in a face-to-face presentation of the same course. Whether you are enrolled in a face-to-face or online section of this course, you will cover the same material, perform the same assignments, and be examined on the same concepts.
In either setting, our focus is on the Core Outcomes and Learning Objectives established for the course, and all course activities are designed to help you attain those objectives. The biggest difference is the way we go about these things. In an online section, "Lectures" are in the form of written notes and/or PowerPoint presentations; even so, they’re supplemented by outside reading assignments (textbooks, articles, Web pages, etc.), just as they would be in a face-to-face classroom.
One of the most important aspects of instructor-led learning is the ability to interact with the instructor and other students in the class. Since online students are not together in the same room, we accomplish this interaction using tools available in the online classroom:
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
There will be examinations, article and case reviews, group project, and weekly discussion questions. You will be assigned to a group and will be creating a group project. The group project will involve a written project of at least 15 pages and an accompanying PowerPoint presentation. The project can be on any topic that you choose as a group, though it should relate to the course and must be approved by the instructor. Your project should address not only problems that may exist, but also solutions or recommendations. You should utilize at least five outside sources besides the course textbook(s). The final project should be double-spaced and free of grammar and spelling errors. You should use the APA method of reference citations. The PowerPoint presentation should complement the paper.
You have many methods of communicating with your team/group for this project (e-mails, group chat rooms, etc.). You are encouraged to make contact with your group early in the course and decide on how you will assemble this project.
The group project is due by the end of Week 7. Please note, the group members will be assigned during the 2nd week.
Grading Weights are as follows:
Final Grading Scale:
Late Submission of Course Materials:
Each week's work must be completed by the due dates specified for that week. Assignments received after their stated due dates will incur a 10% reduction in your score for each three days (or fraction thereof) that your assignment is late.
NO work will be accepted for credit after the last day of the term.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Respect for each learner and diversity of viewpoints are strongly encouraged and required. We are all here to learn, and I learn from you as much as you learn from me. The instructor succeeds when students succeed. I believe in learning, unlearning, and relearning. Please do not hesitate to contact at any time if you have questions or concerns.
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.

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
Disability Guidelines:Park University is committed to meeting the needs of all students that meet the criteria for special assistance. These guidelines are designed to supply directions to students concerning the information necessary to accomplish this goal. It is Park University's policy to comply fully with federal and state law, including Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, regarding students with disabilities. In the case of any inconsistency between these guidelines and federal and/or state law, the provisions of the law will apply. Additional information concerning Park University's policies and procedures related to disability can be found on the Park University web page: http://www.park.edu/disability .
