In my opinion learning is most effective when the information is presented in multiple formats, stimulates active participation from students, and is reinforced by applying the information to the “real world”. I require students to read the applicable chapters for each week and prepare written responses to end-of-chapter questions when applicable. Then during class we use those responses to generate class discussions and apply the concepts to cases, projects, and current events.
I believe the instructor’s role is to facilitate learning and spark interest in finding the answers to questions, not to spoon-feed the information and see how well the student can parrot it back on an exam. If a question is brought up during class that does not have a quick answer, I sometimes will ask the students to research the question as homework or extra credit. This allows students to find the answer and equips them with skills such as problem-solving and analysis.
I encourage and value feedback from my students, and incorporate their suggestions as appropriate

Academic Honesty:As a learning community, the University upholds the highest standards of academic integrity in all its academic activities, by faculty, staff, administrators and students. Academic integrity involves much more than respecting intellectual property rights. It lies at the heart of learning, creativity, and the core values of the University. Those who learn, teach, write, publish, present, or exhibit creative works are advised to familiarize themselves with the requirements of academic integrity and make every effort to avoid possible offenses against it, knowingly or unknowingly.

Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, interpretation, words (even a few), data, statements, illustration or creative work and their presentation as one's own. An offense against plagiarism constitutes a serious academic misconduct. Although offenses against academic integrity can manifest themselves in various ways, the most common forms of offenses are plagiarism and cheating. Plagiarism goes beyond the copying of an entire article. It may include, but is not limited to: copying a section of an article or a chapter from a book, reproduction of an art work, illustration, cartoon, photograph and the like and passing them off as one's own. Copying from the Internet is no less serious an offense than copying from a book or printed article, even when the material is not copyrighted.
Plagiarism also includes borrowing ideas and phrases from, or paraphrasing, someone else's work, published or unpublished, without acknowledging and documenting the source. Acknowledging and documenting the source of an idea or phrase, at the point where it is utilized, is necessary even when the idea or phrase is taken from a speech or conversation with another person.
