This course is based on reading and engaged class discussion. You cannot succeed without reading the material, reading it carefully, and taking notes on what you have read. Simply monitoring the discussion threads and reading the weekly lectures will not be enough -- citations from the readings and comments on the class discussion are required in every written journal assignment and you cannot reach successful depth of understanding without reading. Please let me know if you are having trouble understanding the material. You will probably not be alone and you will provide me a clear opportunity to help all the students engage with the ideas.
The Core Assessment of this course are "Final paper and presentation". Students will complete an 8-10 page paper on a leadership topic of his or her choice (as approved by instructor) and present the paper to the class. (Outcomes: #1, #2, #4, #5) Paper must

Late Submission of Course Materials:
It is easy to get behind in this course. This is particularly troublesome because learning the course is designed to be sequential and cumulative. Your active participation throughout each week will be critical to your learning and critical to the health of the learning community. In other words, if you aren't present, you suffer and your colleagues suffer. It is critical that you engage with the class consistently across the semester.
The on-line environment requires us to complete the work for each week within the Monday to Sunday window. We will adhere to that rule. However, we have cumulative projects in this course, so it will be important for you to do the reading and the suggestions for preparation to succeed in the core assessment on a regular basis across the semester.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
All students and the instructor will engage in a supportive classroom environment while actively challenging and encouraging our intellectual progress. All students and the instructor will behave with the upmost respect for others despite differences in opinion, background, or views.
