Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is one of a seamless interaction between students, instructor and technology with a foundation on lectures, readings, quizzes, dialogues, examinations, internet, videos, web sites and writings. I believe in education as a lifelong process and that each student is an individual with individual needs.

1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8
There are two homework assignments that must be submitted through the dropbox.
There are weekly quizzes that are meant to be comprehension of the material that week, so think of them as a mini exam. These can only be taken once. Their format can consist of all the following: multiple choice, matching, fill in the blank, and short answer. They are open book, but I can not stress enough that studying for them would be a necessity.
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7
This is a proctored exam. It is NOT open book. Your proctor form must be completed by week 6. The format can consist of all the following: multiple choice, matching, fill in the blank, and short answer..
Late Submission of Course Materials: Assignments will be accepted up to one week after their due date, but will be penalized 10% per day. Students may NOT make up quizzes or exams missed because of an unexcused absence.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
Be respectful of each other in the discussion boards. Please do not use sarcasm as it often does not come across as you mean it when read by others. Inappropriate posts will be deleted and you will receive a "0" for that week's discussion grade.
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 95-96
