We are all learners throughout our entire lives. This learning is from both formal education and “informal education”, or what some of us refer to as personal experience. Since our personal experiences are by definition limited, there may come a time when we desire to enrich ourselves through formal education. For some of us this may be knowledge for its own sake. For many of us the desire to seek formal education is to prepare for future opportunities that would not otherwise be available. But there is more to formal education than completing assignments and “filling squares”. There is what we can learn from each other.
This learning and interaction occurs while completing course objectives together. I believe these objectives are introduced and measured best through lectures, readings, homework and your research paper/presentation. Their completion enables all of us to learn things that would not be possible anywhere else.
Finally, I firmly believe that knowledge in the classroom must not only be acquired but also translated for personal application and for application in the work environment. Enrichment is made complete when learning is applied in our own personal experience.
As a life long learner I look forward to your unique experiences that will enrich us all.
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.
