Course Objectives

 

Students are awarded points for obtaining skills that help advance the practice of respiratory care.  Points are awarded for specific classes. More points are awarded when the student completes a NEW area of practice.  NEW refers to obtaining education/training that the student had not previously been trained in.  Fewer points are awarded for re-certifying in an area of study.  Certificates of Completion are used to document course completion.  The certificates must be obtained, and therefore dated, AFTER the student enrolled in RESP 4663 at MSU.  No certificates can be used when dated BEFORE the student started taking this class.  The student should achieve a point total of 3 (see table below) and write a Reflective Report.  Once documentation is submitted, the instructor can complete grading for this class.  The grade of ‘I’ is assigned until the student requests the instructor to complete grading of the class.  This course can be taken twice for credit, however excess points obtained in the first class CANNOT be carried over to the second and topics must vary.

Course Expectations

 

Certificates of Completion

Each time the student completes a program of study a notarized copy of the certificate of completion must be obtained.  These certificates are used to document the students’ attendance in the class. 

Reflective Report

A word-processed report must be written that explains why the particular certificates that were obtained are important to advancing the practice of respiratory care.  The report is to be narrative rather than a list of topics covered.  The report needs to have at least three pages of written material, 1-inch margins, double-spaced and no more than a 11-point font.  The grade is made on how well the student makes the argument that the material studied advances the practice of respiratory care.  The style of this paper is to be energetic and precise: the sentence structure is varied and the words are carefully chosen. How the writer says things is as excellent as what the writer says. There is evidence of careful editing since the essay contains few grammatical and/or mechanical errors.

Submission Format Policy

 

  

Please send messages to me through WebCt.  However, if you have any problems, you may contact me via my email ann.medford@mwsu.edu.  Please do not use any previous email address you may have been given.



Note: You may not submit a paper for a grade in this class that already has been (or will be) submitted for a grade in another course, unless you obtain the explicit written permission of me and the other instructor involved in advance.

Plagiarism Policy 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.

Students with Disabilities The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is a federal anti-discrimination statute that provides comprehensive civil rights protection for persons with disabilities. Among other things, this legislation requires that all students with disabilities be guaranteed a learning environment that provides for reasonable accommodation of their disabilities. If you believe you have a disability requiring an accommodation, please contact the Disability Support Services in Room 168 of the Clark Student Center, 397-4140.

Safe Zones Statement The professor considers this classroom to be a place where you will be treated with respect as a human being - regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, national origin, religious affiliation, sexual orientation, political beliefs, age, or ability. Additionally, diversity of thought is appreciated and encouraged, provided you can agree to disagree. It is the professor's expectation that ALL students consider the classroom a safe environment.

Contacting your Instructor All instructors in the Department have voicemail in their offices and MWSU e-mail addresses. Make sure you add your instructor's phone number and e-mail address to both email and cell phone lists of contacts.

Writing Proficiency Requirement All students seeking a Bachelor's degree from Midwestern State University must satisfy a writing proficiency requirement once they've 1) passed English 1113 and English 1123 and 2) earned 60 hours. You may meet this requirement by passing either the Writing Proficiency Exam or English 2113. Please keep in mind that, once you've earned over 90 hours, you lose the opportunity to take the $25 exam and have no option but to enroll in the three-credit hour course. If you have any questions about the exam, visit the Writing Proficiency Office website at http://academics.mwsu.edu/wpr, or call 397-4131.
