Students are responsible for weekly material, and are valued for contributions to discussion. It is understood that most students are involved with professional and personal obligations, but in taking this course you are responsible to complete the assigned work and interact online with fellow participants.
There are no regularly scheduled meetings, either physically or online. The minimum amount of interaction required for this class is that each participant log into the BlackBoard course environment at least two different times per week and contribute at least four postings directly related to the weeks work. See Participation Information (below) for the course Web address.
Please note: This class may not be taken as an independent study.
Competency is graded by the grasp of assigned weekly material. This assessment will be made through written quizzes, quality of discussion and assigned homework. It is expected that assigned work be completed in a timely manner and in such a way that it reflects a considered effort towards mastery of the subject.
