I will serve as your facilitator and will work with you to take responsibility for your learning processes and work. You will learn how to perform research for your case studies and discussion topics using the World Wide Web and your text.I develop my classes with the assumption that We are all Life Time Learners and that adults learn better if they are part of the learning process itself. In order to succeed in this course, the student must first and foremost be in class for all meetings. The student must conscientiously prepare for class by reading the text prior to class. Taking notes on the reading will also be to the student's benefit. The student should be prepared to answer questions and solve problems in class as well as cases. The student must also satisfactorily complete all examinations and homework in the class. All methods of instruction are designed to transfer new material by clarifying and emphasizing subject areas presented in the text. The lecture relies on the fact that you have read the assigned material and have completed any assignment relating to it. We can then take this learning and find situation to apply the new knowledge.
