The facilitator's educational philosophy centers around the principle that learning is an active process. The student's ability to apply the concepts covered in class in real world settings is directly related to the student's willingness to participate actively in the class and practice concept applications. Attendance and participation are required elements in the learning process as are practice, interaction, group discussion and idea exploration. The facilitator believes in creating an interactive course with problems that reflect situations and scenarios encountered in the world outside the classroom.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment that measures the course Learning Outcomes. The purpose of this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. For this course, the core assessment is a final exam to be administered in all sections of EC 141. This exam is worth 30 percent of the student’s final grade and will test students’ mastery of core learning outcomes through short essay Tools and Methods of Economics questions, Graphical Problems in he Communications section, and Critical Thinking short-answer questions. For each core learning outcome, the student should be prepared to draw the relevant graph, define basic concepts or policies, identify relevant shifts in the curves, and state final impacts on relevant variables.

THIS IS A BLENDED COURSE: This format provides some of the
best features of face-to-face and online courses, such as: direct interaction
with your instructor and classmates in a classroom environment, use of
technology in the online component to enhance your learning experience,
flexibility and convenience, and reduced commuting time and expense.
There will not be any more (or less) work to complete a
course in a blended format. It will simply provide students and the instructor
with a degree of flexibility not available in the standard face-to-face course.
The course sessions will include eight face-to-face meetings (on Tuesday of
Weeks 1-8, Thursday of Weeks 1, 4 and 8)--see course schedule above for
specific dates—from 5:30 pm to 8:10 pm) and the time spent working online make
this hybrid course 60% face-to-face and 40% online. The face-to-face sessions
are mandatory meetings. Each online activity is organized on a weekly basis
with predetermined due dates and are self-paced; however,
since the online participation is asynchronous, students will enjoy the
advantage of choosing the times they wish to participate outside of the
face-to-face sessions during the week.
