Classroom Rules of Conduct:
· AR491 is primarily a lecture class, but the format will include lecture, discussion, group and individual discussion
· Group interaction speeds learning and increases the depth of study for all. Feedback from the instructor is an important element of learning, and whether in lecture class discussion or a studio setting, the feedback may be given to one student and the resulting information shared with all.
· Students are expected to come to class prepared to participate with books as supplies as needed. The studio and computer lab will be available for students' use when the rooms are not scheduled for other classes.
· Students are expected to work a minimum of six hours a week outside of class, in addition to making full use of class time.
· A professional and respectful attitude toward the instructor and fellow students is expected. Tardiness, leaving before class is dismissed, and other class disruptions (such as phone calls) will be noted and reflected in the final grade.
A schedule of class topics, activities, and assignments is attached to this syllabus.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 93
Attendance Policy:Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.
Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 96INSTRUCTOR'S ATTENDANCE POLICY:
•Class attendance is required. An attendance sheet will be passed around at the beginning of each class while announcements are being made. It is the student's responsibility to sign the attendance sheet at this time. Do not hold the attendance sheet for fellow classmates who are late.
•Students who do not sign the attendance sheet, but arrive after it is distributed, will be considered tardy. Three late arrivals will equal one unexcused absence.
•In case of illness or emergency, the instructor must be notified before noon on the day of the absence. Notification must be in writing and sent via e-mail. Each student will be allowed three absences, which, if proper notification is sent, will be recorded as "excused."
•Thus each of the following will result in a 5% deduction from the final grade:
1. Three late arrivals, equaling one unexcused absence.
2. Any absence that is not excused by sending e-mail notification.
3. The fourth and each subsequent absence, regardless of excuse.
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 .
