Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is one where students experience real world labor relations situations. I will incorporate lectures, videos, readings and homework assignments into the classroom environment. I believe learning is more relevant and effective when the students practice what they have learned through the class activities. I will expect each student to explore various ways to address and understand labor relations. I also anticipate that each student will share their experiences and contribute to the overall learning process.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
The course grade for students will be based on the overall average of homework and tests taken during the course in accordance with the weighting of the various requirements as stated in the syllabus.
All final exams in all School of Business courses will be comprehensive and will be closed book and closed notes. They will constitute 30% of the total course grade and will not be a take-home exam. They will be completed during the test week in the period designated by the registrar or by the Proctor in the case online courses. If calculators are allowed, they will not be multifunctional electronic devices that include features such as: phones, cameras, instant messaging, pagers, and so forth. Electronic Computers will not be allowed on final exams unless an exception is made by the Dean of the School of Business.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: This is a 400-level (senior-level) class. Students are expected to be prepared for class each week, and to treat the instructor and the other class members with respect and with courtesy. Students walking out of class without prior notification to the instructor will receive an unexcused absence "U" for that day of class. Students are expected to be in class for the entire class period to receive credit for attendance that day. Students should be prepared to take examinations on the day that the exam is administered. During the Collective Bargaining Exercise, if student receive an unexcused absence for that day of class, it will result in a 5 point deduction from the student's grade during this exercise.
Academic Honesty:Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life. Park University students and faculty members are encouraged to take advantage of the University resources available for learning about academic honesty (www.park.edu/current or http://www.park.edu/faculty/).from Park University 2012-2013 Undergraduate Catalog Page 97
