Educational Philosophy: Not all people learn the same way, for that reason, I believe in using a variety of instructional methods which include interactive lectures, readings, as well as the use of technology to achieve the learning outcomes. This provides a balanced learning environment in which students are open to exploring the ideas and concepts being discussed.
Grading: Total Points Possible = 500
A >= 450
B = 400-449

Late Submission of Course Materials: Late work will only be accepted with prior approval from your instructor, so once you become aware of a situation, personal or employment-related which may prevent you from submitting your work on time, make sure you communicate this to your instructor. All late work must be submitted one week from its' original due date. Final exams and all work due on week 8 cannot be made up, unless in case of emergencies, which must be documented.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Please be on time, attend class for the entire 2.5 hour period, turn off your cell phone or other devices and be ready to learn. Class attendance and communication with your instructor are essential to your success in this class, keep your instructor informed of illnesses, family emergencies, or other responsibilities which may keep you from attending any class meeting.
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
