My educational philosophy is one of
inter-activeness based on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations,
internet, videos, web sites and writings. I will engage each of you in what is
referred to as disputatious learning to encourage the lively exploration of
ideas, issues and contradictions.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course's Core 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 Comprehensive Final Examination to be administered in all sections of MG 401. This exam is worth at least 30 percent of the student's final grade and will test students' mastery of the Core Learning Outcomes (as listed on this syllabus) through definitions, essay, and/or multiple choice questions.
This core assessment is a CLOSED BOOK, CLOSED NOTES comprehensive examination that must be administered and proctored in the classroom and may not be given as a take-home examination. Students should not have access to the exam or its questions before it is administered. The duration of the exam can be no longer than two hours.
No computers, or materials other than a writing instrument and a calculator without text functions and communication may be used for the exam; this applies to all students, regardless of whether the exam is for on-line or face-to-face students. Completion of the exam is strictly individual; students may not work in groups to complete the exam.
Learning will be assessed through
participation, examinations, papers and presentations. Assigned readings
must be completed before each class to facilitate discussions. Written
case analyses and individual presentations will be required for the final grade
for the course. Examinations will be closed book.

Instructor Bio: Welcome students of MG 401, Senior Seminar in Management. My name is George Powell and I will be your
instructor during the next 8 weeks of your course. My teaching experience began in 1974
teaching both Graduate and Undergraduate courses face to face and on line. I teach Business Management and Human Resource
courses as a Senior Adjunct Instructor and have been teaching exclusively for Park
University since 1992.
I completed a thirty six year
professional military career in the United States Air Force, which included
four years in Senior Executive Leadership as Commanding Officer of two Major
Communications Groups. I retired Lt. Colonel in 1991. After retirement I
began civilian employment as a government contracting manager of Innovative
Technology Corporation, O’Fallon, Illinois. Later I committed to a three-year
stint as General Manager of Durham School Services, a student transportation
company. This activity required daily involvement with labor union and other leadership activities which provided considerable insight and
practical application in the Leadership process. I will bring this experience to our class.
Welcome aboard for a very
interesting and informational course.
