Educational Philosophy: Higher education is a collaborative effort, the success of which depends greatly on the disciplined student functioning as part of a larger group that is facilitated by the instructor.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Discussion questions will be posted for every week. Note that many of these are not made to produce a specific answer, so there is no right or wrong answers per say. In many cases, you are to just exercise some critical thinking on some of the issues presented in the questions. There are two requirements regarding discussion questions you should keep in mind. 1, In addition to answering all the questions, you will need to respond to at least one answer that some one else has posted. You may agree, add on to their argument or offer a rebuttal. 2, Anytime you write on the discussion board (whether it be responding or answering a question) keep it civil and professional! If you have to be reminded about inappropriate or discourteous comments, it means you have lost points!

Late Submission of Course Materials: All exams and assignments, including weekly discussions, peer reviews and article submittals must be completed no later than the specified due dates (and times). NO EXCEPTIONS!!
Classroom Rules of Conduct: The online environment is different from the face-to-face environment in that we do not have the luxury of being able to read body language and facial expressions or hear tone of voice. Because of that, we should all be sensitive of how we address each other in the online classroom. I like to assume that everyone has the best of intentions with whatever they may say, but things like foul language and racially/ethnically charged language is never acceptable here. Please refer to the current Park University catalog and look up "Student Conduct Code" to find information about how inappropriate behavior is defined at Park University and how to file a complaint, if necessary.
Bottom line is that you are expected you to conduct yourselves courteously and professionally. This includes weekly discussion questions in which you may post agreements or refutations of your classmate’s posts. If I have to remind you to keep it courteous, it means you have lost points. Having to remind you more than once will result in further disciplinary action.
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
