Educational Philosophy: An open and honest dialogue is the key to learning. I use multiple mediums to present the material including lecture, discussion, the internet, videos and current events. Religion and beliefs are often very personal and emotion and I encourage free inquiry and expression of ideas in the classroom. I expect each person to be open and tolerant of other people's ideas and beliefs. At the same time I expect students to justify their opinions and ideas with facts. Students should be aware of current world events and I encourage you to bring them to class for discussion.
Instructor Learning Outcomes
Late Submission of Course Materials: All assignments are due at the beginning of class date as assigned unless prior arrangements are made with the instructor.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
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

If you keep me informed and give me as much notice as possible, I will work with each student on an individual basis to ensure you complete the course requirements
