 American Disabilities Act (ADA)

Midwestern State University (MSU) does not discriminate on the basis of an individual’s disability and complies with Section 504 and the Americans with Disabilities Act in its admission, accessibility and employment of individuals in programs and activities.  MSU provide academic accommodations and auxiliary aids to individuals with disabilities, as defined by law, who are otherwise qualified to meet academic and employment requirements. For assistance call (940) 397-4618 or 397-4515.  Please see the instructor outside of class to make any arrangements involving special accommodations. It is the student’s responsibility to declare any disabilities. After declaration, preferably at the beginning of each semester, the student needs to contact individual instructors to determine any reasonable accommodations that may be required

 

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

Plagiarism is the use of someone else's thoughts, words, ideas, or lines of argument in your own work without appropriate documentation (a parenthetical citation at the end and a listing in "Works Cited")-whether you use that material in a quote, paraphrase, or summary. It is a theft of intellectual property and will not be tolerated, whether intentional or not.

 

Student Honor Creed 

As an MSU Student, I pledge not to lie, cheat, steal, or help anyone else do so." 

As students at MSU, we recognize that any great society must be composed of empowered, responsible citizens. We also recognize universities play an important role in helping mold these responsible citizens. We believe students themselves play an important part in developing responsible citizenship by maintaining a community where integrity and honorable character are the norm, not the exception. Thus, We, the Students of Midwestern State University, resolve to uphold the honor of the University by affirming our commitment to complete academic honesty. We resolve not only to be honest but also to hold our peers accountable for complete honesty in all university matters. We consider it dishonest to ask for, give, or receive help in examinations or quizzes, to use any unauthorized material in examinations, or to present, as one's own, work or ideas which are not entirely one's own. We recognize that any instructor has the right to expect that all student work is honest, original work. We accept and acknowledge that responsibility for lying, cheating, stealing, plagiarism, and other forms of academic dishonesty fundamentally rests within each individual student. We expect of ourselves academic integrity, personal professionalism, and ethical character. We appreciate steps taken by University officials to protect the honor of the University against any who would disgrace the MSU student body by violating the spirit of this creed. Written and adopted by the 2002-2003 MSU Student Senate.

 

Honor System:

All components of RESP 3553-X1 are designed to represent the efforts of each student INDIVIDUALLY and are NOT to be shared, copied, or plagiarized from other sources.  When students submit their efforts for grading, they are ating they abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, s, or examinations; (2) dependence upon the aid of sources beyond those authorized by the instructor in writing papers, preparing reports, solving problems, or completing other assignments; or (3) the acquisition of s or other academic materials belonging to the university faculty or staff without permission.

Plagiarism includes, but is not limited to, the use of, by paraphrase or direct quotation without correct citation in the text and on the reference list, the published or unpublished works of another person. Students may NOT submit papers and assignments that they have previously submitted for this or other courses. The use of materials generated by agencies engaged in "selling" term papers is also plagiarism. Students are encouraged to review the tutorials and suggested websites for more information about plagiarism. 

Academic dishonesty (cheating, plagiarism, etc.) will not be tolerated in this class. Whenever a student is unsure of whether a particular situation will be interpreted as academic dishonesty, he/she should ask the instructor for clarification.  If students are guilty of academic dishonesty, a grade of zero (0) will be given for the quiz, assignment, etc.  Cases may also be referred to the Dean of Students for possible dismissal from the university.

***Research papers and projects must be original work for each course assignment.  The faculty will not accept a submission that has been or is being submitted for another course.  No Exceptions! 

PLEASE NOTE

By enrolling in this course, the student expressly grants MSU a “limited right” in all intellectual property created by the student for the purpose of this course.  The “limited right” shall include but shall not be limited to the right to reproduce the student’s work product in order to verify originality and authenticity, and for educational purposes. Specifically, faculty may submit student papers and assignments to an external agency to verify originality and authenticity, and to detect for plagiarism.

CLASS PARTICIPATION:

 

Class participation is an integral part of this online course.  There are numerous activities that require each student to post opinions from the readings, research, or in response to the discussion by others.  You are expected to participate actively in and contribute to the learning experience in this course.   Participation means providing substantive comments, questions and contributions that advance the learning process for you and/or other learners in the course. Participation may include responding to questions and issues posed by other learners. Non-substantive comments, irrelevant comments and comments of the nature of “I agree” or “I disagree” (unless the latter two are elaborated upon to make them substantive) do not count towards meeting the participation requirement. You are expected to participate each academic week. 

ONLINE JOURNAL:

The class journal is for you to post your comments, assessments, insights or questions on the readings for the week. You may choose to comment on, an assigned reading chapter, an article that pertains to that weeks chapter readings, or on several.  Choose a topic from your reading that Please do not re-state or summarize the weekly readings.  You may want to find new peer reviewed journal articles that relate to the weekly readings and share with your peers.  I have also included several additional reading articles that pertain to your reading chapters that you could journal about.  These articles can be found in the Additional Learning Tools Module.  Each student should login and read journals and comment on other postings.  Each week you are required to read 2 other student’s journals and give feedback.  Your feedback should be constructive, and should show that you have actually read their response.  Responses of 1-2 lines are not acceptable.  Post your journals under Discussion/Journal. 

Your initial journal entry should be posted by 11:59pm on Wednesday and your two response should be posted by 11:59pm on Sunday.  

In addition to the suggestions above consider these questions when posting your comments:

1. What did you learn? What do you now know that you did not last week?

2. What do you agree with or disagree with

3. How can you apply this information to your clinical practice?

4. What do you conclude?

References must be current (within the last 10 years).  Use scholarly sources; apply APA style to the manuscript.  ***Your Application Project topic must be approved by me.  Please turn in your topic choice ASAP but it is due no later than Sept 22nd***  The actual Project itself is due October 27th at 11:59pm

 

NEO/PEDI RESEARCH PAPER:

This paper will consist of 3-5 pages of material, in addition to your reference page, covering a specific topic within the specialty field of Neonatal and Pediatric Respiratory Care.  The topic will be assigned to you.  This paper will be based off of research you perform in regards to the given topic.  A minimum of 5 scholarly resources are required for your research.  This paper must follow APA guidelines and an APA style guideline resource is provided to you within the additional resources module.  An example of a typical APA style research paper can be found in the additional resources module as well.  I do expect well written papers that are at a college level of writing.  A rubric for the paper will be used for a grading guideline.  This paper will be due no later than November 13th at 11:59pm.
