Each student will be further challenged to develop and demonstrate critical thinking skills regarding the exploration of issues and concepts.
Instructor Learning Outcomes
Late Submission of Course Materials: A class week is defined as the period of time between Monday and Sunday. The first week begins the first day of the term and ends midnight the last Sunday of the term. Readings, activities, and assignments scheduled for completion during a class week should be completed by Sunday of the week, unless there is a specific due date in the Course Schedule. It is important to understand that this is not a course where assignments can be posted at any time during the 8-week term and there is a deadline each week for that week's assignments. Assignments posted after the weekly deadline will not receive credit.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: In this course some people may express opinions with which you do not agree. Be objective and respectful when responding to different points of view. It is important not to take disagreement personally. Differences in thinking are good because knowledge is brioadened and learning is enhanced. Rersponses to different ideas and observations need to be objective. This means maintaining boundaries and not making personal attacks on the ability or views of others. Your responses reflect your level of maturity and professionalism. Differences generate conflict. The important thing is to manage conflict in a way that promotes a civil exchange of ideas which is conducive to learning.
