Regular attendance is expected because an important part of the course is the dialog that takes place among students. Five points will be taken off the total for each regular class absence. Attendance and participation are also expected in online discussions. Requirements for participation will posted as part of each discussion assignment and points will be deducted if requirements are not met.
Other Class Policies:
Respect for others demonstrates professionalism. Issues covered in this class can lead to heated discussion and disagreements among class members. This is to be expected and is not discouraged. It is important to remember that you may disagree with the thought or idea of another person, but not disrespect the person who has it. A diversity of opinions brings growth, especially if we concede that other people’s ideas may be as valid as our own. Points may be subtracted for disrespectful behavior.
Only one person should be talking at once. In the distance format, the person who has the floor, whether at the sending or receiving site, should have the attention of all others. Side conversations when your site is not on TV are unfair to the instructor or presenter as well as to others at your site. Please refrain from doing this. This behavior can result in points being subtracted.
