FACULTY’S EDUCATIONAL PHILOSOPHY
· Design: Design is a process that involves generating ideas, editing and refining those ideas and producing the final result. It is both individual and collaborative. It is both creative and meticulous. It involves critical thinking and effective communication through writing, drawing, describing, modeling and drafting. I believe in the universality and importance of the Design Process. Learning the process of design will enable one to apply that process to any problem, whether it be a written document, the design of a space or the design of a product. Every project and assignment shall be approached as a design problem.
· Teaching: As a teacher I collect a body of knowledge and share it with other people. This shared information becomes a springboard to a variety of activities that reinforce the course concepts. Students observe, read, write, discuss, evaluate, collaborate and create. Cross disciplinary projects are encouraged and forays into the design community help make the boundary between the professional world and the academic world fluid.

Grading points required: A: 810 and above D: 540-629
B: 720-819 F: Below 539
Late Submission of Course Materials: Many assignments will have an oral presentation component. There will be no make up dates for missed presentations, but work may be turned at the next class meeting for partial credit. A written excuse must be attached.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
An attendance sheet will be passed around at the beginning of each class while announcements are being made. Students who miss the attendance sheet are considered late. Three late arrivals will equal one absence.
The value of this class is diminished for all when students are absent. Attendance at all classes is required, but since “things happen,” each student may be absent three times without penalty. The fourth absence, whether excused or not, will result in the lowering of the final grade by ten points. Each subsequent absence will result in an additional ten points being taken from the final grade.
