Educational Philosophy: I believe in the "transformational" view of learning where the student interacts within their community as part of the learning process. The student is an active participant, not a passive learner. I believe in challenging students to consider new and different views. The classroom is an excellent setting to challenge current paradigms by being introduced to new concepts. I challenge students to critically evaluate the new information and to reach their own conclusions.
Instructor Learning Outcomes
Late Submission of Course Materials: Late assignments will be marked down one letter grade (40 points) for each class period they are late and a failing grade assigned if not submitted before the final exam. Students should plan ahead so as to not be late with assignments due to equipment malfunctions.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Students must be respectful to all points of view, especially to those which are different from their own. Respect and courtesy must prevail in the classroom. Students are responsible to ensure all work is submitted timely.
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
