Instructor Grove's educational philosophy is based on using a variety of methods in learning, focusing on the interactive. Lectures, readings, quizzes, group work, class discussion, examinations, writing, and use of the Internet are significant components of this learning process.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Class Assessment: You will be graded on the weekly submission of thesis tasks and discussions of current issues from assigned readings.
Proctored final examination- The final exam will be on the topics discussed weekly. For the final, I will pick three topics and ask you to write about two of them.
A final proctored examination will be taken in a proctored testing environment during the 8th week at one of the Park University sites around the country or at an alternative location. For proctored examinations, photo identification is required at the time of the test. Guidelines for selecting an acceptable proctor can be found on the Park University Website.
Failure to take a final proctored exam (or submit your final project for some online graduate courses) will result in an automatic "F" grade.
Late Submission of Course Materials: Generally, the instructor will not accept late assignments; however, if there is acceptable reason students may request an extension. If an extension is granted the late work will not receive full credit, ten percent will be deducted from the raw score. If students know they are going to miss classes, it is their responsibility to submit assignments prior to the due date.
Classroom Rules of Conduct:
1. Instructor is not responsible for contacting absent students or providing items from missed classes.
2. Be prepared for class. This means that you have read the assigned readings and are prepared to discuss them. This course will consist of class discussion, small group discussion, group work, and lecture. You are expected to take part in the discussions and group work. Your in-class participation is evident in your grades through the oral presentations, chapter discussions, etc. Also, assigned reading will not always be reviewed in class, but examinations will be from both assigned readings and class discussions.
3. No makeup exams will be given unless the student Students must make arrangements to take tests prior to the due date if they are not going to be present.
4. Computers make writing and revising much easier and more productive. Students must recognize though that technology can also cause problems. Printers run out of ink and hard drive crash. Students must be responsible for planning ahead and meeting deadlines in spite of technology. Be sure to save copies of your work to disk, hard drive, and print out paper copies for backup purposes.
5. No late assignments are accepted for any reason.
6. Attendance is taken at the beginning and end of class. You must be present at both to receive the participation points in full for the evening along with active participation in class discussions.
7. No extra credit is given.
