Class Policies

Interaction Policy

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 is one regularly scheduled meeting per week on Thursday from 4:15 PM to 7:00 PM. Students should make every effort to be present for these classes. If you are unable to attend the course, a tape of the broadcast will be available at each TELETECHNET site. Students are responsible for viewing tapes of missed classes prior to the next class meeting.

Some weekly meetings will be replaced by online discussions. These times will be announced at least two weeks prior.

Please note: This class may not be taken as an independent study.

Coursework Policy

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.
