I believe that education
is a life-long process. I understand that for some of you, this class may
not have any direct correlation to your current job or major. However, I also
think that it is difficult to properly value the process of learning itself, or
the impact that it can have on not only you but those around you. My hope is
that by the time this class is done that each of us will, at a minimum, have
found something that can be used either in our personal lives or to improve our
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
FORMAT, READING ASSIGNMENTS, AND TOPICS:
Please be prepared to
participate in class as needed. I hope to bring in current “real world”
examples, and to stimulate debate. Do ask questions concerning material you do
not understand or if you question the contents. I will add material based
on the topics-subjects for that lecture period. I hope you are comforable
sharing with us how your organization applies (or fails to apply) the concepts
we are addressing.
As you know, in
organizations, we solve problems, either alone or in teams. Therefore, one
case problems will be analyzed, written, and prepared by student teams. On the
evening these are due, teams will present their cases to the entire class and
turn in two copies to the instructor; one hard copy and one electronic
copy for my records. The case format and grading criteria will be handed out in
class well in advance of the due date of the first case.
Please choose any topic
you would like from our studies, and put together a 5 page paper that discusses
how this topic is relevant to your place of employment. If you are not
employed, then look over the topics and think of something that impacts you
See assignment schedule.
Students will be divided into 2 teams. This will be an actual case
with some of the facets of negotiations, including planning, agenda
building, alternative development, tactics, and postmortems. Grading on this assignment will be based upon
participation- and the "winning" teams will be awarded extra points on
their final exam.
EXAMINATIONS AND GRADING:
The mid-term and final
examinations will be multiple choice, fill in the blank, and closed
book. The cases will be graded according to the criteria handed out in
class, all case team members will receive the same grade. 2 quizzes will be
given at the first of class a week before the exams (open notes), to help you
determine if you are on track for the tests. The field projects are
individually graded. All grades are based on an A, B, C, D, F basis, and the
final weights are as follows:
Field Project /
Points (50 Each)
90-100% = A
Below 60% = F
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average
of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting
of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business.
I understand that life often gets in the way of school, so I am
willing to except late submission of materials if the following criteria are
1) You let me know in advance that you will not be able to
complete you work in a timely manner, and give adequate justification
2) Emergencies that do not allow for early notice will be
3) All assignments must be in no later than the final day of
class, or will be recorded as 0 points
4) Quizzes and tests can be made up on a subsequent night, but I
MUST be notified in advance if you will not be available for a test. Missing a
quiz or exam without prior notice will result in a 0 for that element.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
1) Be polite, to your classmates and your instructor
2) Please do not use your cell phone / blackberry during class. If
you must take a call or send messages, please step out of the classroom
3) Please show up on time as much as possible
4) We will plan on taking a short break each hour or as needed /
requested during the class time.

If you don't feel you are able to score well on either the exams or the assignments, please let me know the reason and I will attempt to accommodate you to the greatest extent possible.
