Educational Philosophy: The facilitator's educational philosophy centers around the principle that learning is an active process. The student's ability to apply the concepts covered in class in real world settings is directly related to the student's willingness to participate actively in the class and practice concept applications. Active participation is a required element in the learning process as is interaction, group discussion and idea exploration. The facilitator believes in creating an interactive course with problems that reflect situations and scenarios encountered in the world outside the classroom.
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 142. This exam is worth 30 percent of the student’s final grade and will test students’ mastery of core learning outcomes through Multiple Choice, Tools and Methods of Economics questions, Quantitative Critical Thinking Problems, and Graphical Problems in the Communications section. For each core learning outcome, the student should be prepared to draw the relevant graph; define basic concepts or policies; determine costs, revenue and profit levels; and state final impacts on the individual, firm, and/or industry.
