Our collective efforts should focus on making this class interesting, challenging, thought provoking, interactive and fun! This course will use a variety of learning methods including lectures, in-class discussions, case study and exercises, videos and other interactive processes. Your responsibility is to attend each class on time, to complete assignments according to the schedule, and to be involved in the class discussions and activities. These elements will determine how much you learn, and your grade, in this class.
In order to be fair to everyone in the class the following norms are to be followed by all class members including me: Classes start on time and end on time. Using mobile phone in class is prohibited (including SMS), please turn it off in class. No chatting in class except in a small group activity or assigned discussions. Using of personal computers is not encouraged.
Your philosophy on this matter should be very simple: absolutely no tolerance for cheating or plagiarizing. To violate this sacred trust strikes at the very core of why you paid so much effort in attending to school, which is to learn, to challenge, to dialogue with others, and to receive feedback. Those who violate this cardinal rule should be ready to receive an “F” in the class.
