Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is to integrate lecture, readings, and creative thought using concepts introduced by the text. Students will develop the capability to tie theoretical ideas and models to real-world actions and reactions. I will facilitate active learning to engage students to teach themselves and develop a fundamental capability to understand and use these concepts and ideas as tools for future reference.

Classroom Rules of Conduct: This is a “hybrid” class requiring instructor student meetings at least once per week, with the remaining activities presented online. Deviations from the set schedule will be coordinated between the student and instructor. Cell phones are to be set in a “silent” mode or turned off to prevent distractions. If computers/deskpads are to be used as “note takers”, they will not be used for any other purpose unless instructor approved. Students are expected to be on time and have read the assigned chapters prior to class. The instructor reserves the right to request the student leave the in-class session if these rules are not observed. In this case, no points will be awarded for the session's activities.
Course Topic/Dates/Assignments: This is a Hybrid course that is composed of in-class and online segments.
