Educational Philosophy: I believe that learning takes place best when new material is presented in a way that relates to students everyday lives. Participation is key to this type of learning. Park University students bring lots of experience to the classroom and are expected to share their experiences with their classmates. Active discussions facilitate an in-depth exploration of topics and leads to better retention of the concepts and ideas, resulting in increased application in the workplace.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment:
Course assessment will be determined using written papers, class discussions (including case studies), a mid-term and final exam. Each student will be required to describe a real word situation as it relates to the reading assignment for that week. This involves reading the assigned chapters and then researching a related topic in newspapers, on-line, magazines or using an actual work experience. This research will form the basis for the discussion for the class. Additionally, each student will research two topics of their choosing and submit a written paper ( approx 4 pages) on each topic. The Mid-term examination will consist of multiple choice and short essay questions. The final examination will be a comprehensive, closed book, multiple choice examination and will complete the graded requirements of this class.
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.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: All students are expected to particpate in class discussions. However, it is very important to ensure everyone feels free to share their opinions and comments, so students are asked to refrain fom dominating discussions. Disagreements are part of the learning process, but common courtesy needs to be observed at all times. Students are expected to listen while others are talking, and side conversations should be kept to an absolute minimum.
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
Plagiarism:Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. from Park University 2011-2012 Undergraduate Catalog Page 95
