Educational Philosophy: The educational philosophy of the professor is based on creating an opportunity for students to shape their professional development by means of interactive based lectures, reading, and dialogs exploring ideas from fellow students as well as with the professor. Promoting a three tier approach of instruction consisting of lectures, research projects and a series of written and oral evaluations supported with classroom discussions and encouraged student participation, the objective of introducing the student to an in-depth examination of the course curriculum is satisfied.
Instructor Learning Outcomes
Late Submission of Course Materials: Out of class assignments submitted after the deadline will be subject to a 10% reduction for each day after the assignment due date, without prior arrangements. It is the responsibility of the student to inform the instructor of any delays in complying with the assignment due date. Should the delay continue pas the third day without the assignment being submitted for grade, the student will receive a zero for the assignment.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: All students are expected to participate in classroom discussion, while respecting the views of their fellow students, instructor and other presented materials. While open individual expressions are encouraged, each member of the class is to remain respective and courteous at all times. Cell phones need to be placed on vibrate at all times, in the event of emergency, students will excuse themselves from the classroom to receive personal calls, students will reframe from texting while in class, thus eliminating as much distraction as possible. Each student is responsible for completing all assigned reading prior to class and be prepared to discuss all topics related to the week’s curriculum. In addition all students are responsible for completing all out of class assignments and be prepared to present their product to the instructor on or before the due date as identified by the class syllabus. If for any reason the student should miss a schedule class meeting, they need to notify the instructor within 1 hour if possible or the scheduled start of the class. In the event a student is to be deployed or encounters an emergency that would impede on meeting the class requirements, they must make prior arrangements with the instructor to satisfy the course requirements. The Park University policy concerning class attendance will strictly be enforced. ACADEMIC HONESITY IS NON-NEGOTIABLE.
