LATE ASSIGNMENTS: 

D2L is designed so that students are locked out of the system after the deadline has passed.  Please make note of all deadlines and adhere to them.  Anything not completed and handed in on time will be considered and graded as a “0”.  All assignments must be completed by 11:59pm of the due date.

 

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

Professors have become increasingly aware of, and therefore more adamant about, plagiarism on college campuses.  Remember that copying any part of someone else’s work without properly citing it constitutes plagiarism.  Further, copying other’s ideas and portraying them as your own, even if not word for word, constitutes plagiarism.  The professor will investigate any suspected cases of academic dishonesty.  If further action is necessary, the professor will turn the incident into the proper MWSU authorities for disciplinary action. In addition to the issue of plagiarism, academic dishonesty in an online environment may include:  having someone else complete any assignment or any portion of an assignment and/or discussing via any medium, even email, any exam question.

All assigned 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! 

You are expected to do your own work just as you would be in a “traditional” classroom setting.

 

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 4223-x30 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 attesting they abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests, 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 tests 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.

 

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 activities that require each student to post opinions from the readings, case studies, research, or in response to the discussion by others.  However, in order to earn the maximum amount of participation points you are expected to participate actively in and contribute to the learning experience in this course.   You should provide feedback, comments, and thoughts under dialogue and discussion. 

 

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. There is not a required length for postings as I am looking for quality and substance. 

 

Grading Scale:

A:  90-100

B:  80-89

C:  75-79

D:  70-74

F:  <69

 

A minimum grade of 75 (C) is required in all respiratory courses.  Failure to attain a minimum grade of C will prevent the student from progressing in the program. 

 

Evaluation:

 Syllabus Confirmation                              2%

Discussion Boards                                                18%

Case Studies                                           20%

Teaching Practicum                                  20%

Quizzes                                                  40%

 

All Discussion Boards, Quizzes, and Teaching Practicum Assignments have an open start date meaning you may work ahead during the semester to fit your personal schedule.  However, due dates have been placed and will be followed through with.

 

Syllabus Confirmation:

I have included a syllabus confirmation assignment that can be found in the quiz section. This is a simple yes or no question confirming that you have completely read and completely understand all of the components of the syllabus for this class. This is due by June 6th at 11:59pm. If you have any questions regarding the syllabus, please contact me and I will be happy to help you. This is my way of verifying that you do understand the expectations of this course. This will account for 2% of your final grade.

 

Discussions:

Discussion content and questions will be posted on certain weeks throughout the semester.  You can see the weeks that will include a discussion assignment on the course schedule within the syllabus.  During the weeks that include discussions, an initial post must be submitted by Wednesday at 11:59pm.  Two substantial responses must be made within the discussion board by Saturday at 11:59pm.  For example, your first week’s assignment includes a discussion covering Chapter 1.   Your initial discussion post must be made by Wednesday June 3th and your responses must be posted by Saturday June 6th. Each discussion has a max point value of 6 points. 2 points will be given for your initial post and 2 points will be given for each of your 2 response posts. Late posts do not allow for the possibility of good discussion and therefore are not accepted and will be graded as a 0. The Discussion Board will account for 18% of your final grade.

 

Case Studies:

Throughout the semester, I will assign case studies that cover the reading assignments for that specific week.  I will not assign case studies during the same weeks you have discussion boards.  You are to answer these case studies using the knowledge and understanding of what you have learned from your reading assignments.  Some of these will be thought provoking and will require you to think outside the box.  Some may ask specific knowledge based questions and some may require you to utilize your own opinions and thoughts.  Your answers must have substantial information to back up your thoughts.  A simple “yes” or “no” or “I agree with that” will not suffice. Your answers need to be saved as a WORD document and placed in the appropriate dropbox. Case Studies will not only be graded based on the accurateness of the answers but they will also be graded based on the students’ efforts and the quality of their writing. The Case Studies will account for 20% of your final grade.

 

Quizzes/Exams:

There will be a total of four quizzes, which will cover several chapters within the text. Students are expected to analyze and apply their education knowledge during these quizzes.  Quizzes are located under assessments.  You may use learning resources to help you with the quizzes; however, the quizzes are timed and may only be taken once.  90 minutes for each quiz. Quizzes/Exams account for 40% of your grade, each quiz/exam being worth 10%.

 

Teaching Practicum:

The Teaching Practicum is an actual educational presentation that you are making to a group of people.  This presentation is to be made by YOU and delivered to your audience by YOU!  You also need to create an evaluation form for your audience members to fill out. These evaluation forms must be completed by the audience members and must be submitted in the dropbox along with your presentation materials and summary page.  A document summarizing your evaluations will not be accepted. Students must work individually.  Students will select a specific topic for patient or continuing education; illustrate the need for the program; write objectives, design a relevant learning activity, conduct the learning activity, and use an appropriate evaluation process to demonstrate effectiveness. Each individual will prepare a learning activity using either a Power Point presentation, video, voice over, or module format.  Any creative format will be accepted. 20% of your final grade will depend on your presentation as it will bring together all the concepts we will be discussing throughout the semester. It is recommended that topics be selected early in the semester in order to write each section of the presentation as we are discussing it. Your education topics are your choice.  They need to pertain to healthcare in some format but I do not require that you submit a topic choice to me prior to beginning your work on the presentation.  Students will submit the completed educational model as well as a summary page.  The summary page must include the date the presentation was given, the audience, objectives for the presentation, why you chose your topic and how you felt the presentation went.  Some suggestions for appropriate audiences include RT students, professional colleagues or patients/patient families.  The practicum may be an in-service, procedure demonstration, new product instruction etc.  Any presentation must include the elements outlined above.  Power points should be around 12-15 slides. You must cite your references at the end of your project.    The project must have at least 5 references. References must be current (within the last 10 years).  Use scholarly sources; apply APA style throughout.

***Teaching Practicum due by July 25th, 2015!!!***

Please be sure that when you begin an exam you set apart enough time to start and complete the exam in the allotted amount of time.    

 

BOOK REVIEW/WRITING ASSIGNMENT:

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks is a cautionary tale that reflects the inherent contradiction between the stated purpose of medical research to provide benefit to human kind and the reality of blatant profiteering in the name of advancement of science. The tragedy of the Henrietta Lacks saga should remind us all, especially those in the medical profession, that we have a responsibility to protect those we serve. Several ethical issues arise in this book: identify at least two ethical issues that arise in the Henrietta Lacks case. What could have been done differently? Within the report cite at least 3 current (last five years) peer-reviewed research articles that focus on the ethical issues you address. These sources should correlate with your subject content. Please do not hesitate to utilize additional sources as well. The report is to be APA format, word processed utilizing a font no greater than 12 with 1-inch margins and double-spaced with page numbers. The amount of student written material (excluding the Title Page and References) must total at least 3-5 pages. You will be graded on overall coverage of the subject and readability of the report. Points will be deducted for spelling, grammar and APA formatting. Reports should be submitted under the assignment drop box and are due no later than July 25th.

 

DISCUSSIONS:

During the weeks that include discussions, an initial post must be submitted by Wednesday at 11:59pm.  Two substantial responses must be made within the discussion board by Saturday at 11:59pm.  For example, your first week’s assignment includes a discussion covering Chapter 1.   Your initial discussion post must be made by Wednesday June 3th and your responses must be posted by Saturday June 6th. Each discussion has a max point value of 6 points. 2 points will be given for your initial post and 2 points will be given for each of your 2 response posts. Late posts do not allow for the possibility of good discussion and therefore are not accepted and will be graded as a 0.

 

SYLLABUS CONFIRMATION:

I have included a syllabus confirmation assignment that can be found in the quiz section. This is a simple yes or no question confirming that you have completely read and completely understand all of the components of the syllabus for this class. This is due by June 6th at 11:59pm. If you have any questions regarding the syllabus, please contact me and I will be happy to help you. This is my way of verifying that you do understand the expectations of this course. This will account for 2% of your final grade.

 

 

American with Disabilities Act (ADA):

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.

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.

 

Honor System:

All components of RESP 4153 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 attesting that abided by this rule.

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 and 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.

 

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 “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.

 

PLEASE NOTE:

Focus/Ideas

Excels in responding to assignment.
Interesting, demonstrates
sophistication of thought. Central
idea/thesis is clearly communicated,
worth developing; limited enough to
be manageable. Paper recognizes
some complexity of its thesis: may
acknowledge its contradictions,
qualifications, or limits and follow
out their logical implications.
Understands and critically evaluates
its sources, appropriately limits and
defines terms.

A solid paper, responding appropriately to assignment. Clearly
states a thesis/central idea, but may have minor lapses in development. Begins to acknowledge the complexity of central idea and the possibility of other points of view.
Shows careful reading of sources,
but may not evaluate them critically.
Attempts to define terms, not always
successfully.

Adequate but weaker and less
effective, possibly responding less
well to assignment. Presents central idea in general terms, often
depending on platitudes or cliches.
Usually does not acknowledge other
views. Shows basic comprehension
of sources, perhaps with lapses in
understanding. If it defines terms,
often depends on dictionary
definitions.

Does not have a clear central idea or
does not respond appropriately to the
assignment. Thesis may be too vague
or obvious to be developed effectively. Paper may
misunderstand sources.

Does not respond to the assignment,
lacks a thesis or central idea, and
may neglect to use sources where
necessary.

Organization/Structure

Uses a logical structure appropriate
to paper's subject, purpose, audience, thesis, and disciplinary field. Sophisticated transitional sentences often develop one idea from the previous one or identify their logical relations. It guides the reader through the chain of reasoning or progression of ideas.

Shows a logical progression of ideas
and uses fairly sophisticated
transitional devices; e.g., may move from least to more important idea. Some logical links may be faulty, but each paragraph clearly relates to paper's central idea.

May list ideas or arrange them
randomly rather than using any
evident logical structure. May use
transitions, but they are likely to be
sequential (first, second, third) rather than logic-based. While each
paragraph may relate to central idea, logic is not always clear. Paragraphs have topic sentences but may be overly general, and arrangement of sentences within paragraphs may lack coherence.

May have random organization,
lacking internal paragraph coherence and using few or inappropriate transitions. Paragraphs may lack topic sentences or main ideas, or
may be too general or too specific to be effective. Paragraphs may not all relate to paper's thesis.

No appreciable organization; lacks
transitions and coherence.

Support & Development

Uses evidence appropriately and
effectively, providing sufficient
evidence and explanation to
convince.

Begins to offer reasons to support its
points, perhaps using varied kinds of
evidence. Begins to interpret the
evidence and explain connections
between evidence and main ideas. Its
examples bear some relevance.

Often uses generalizations to support its points. May use examples, but they may be obvious or not relevant. Often depends on unsupported opinion or personal experience, or assumes that evidence speaks for itself and needs no application to the
point being discussed. Often has
lapses in logic.

Depends on cliches or
overgeneralizations for support, or
offers little evidence of any kind.
May be personal narrative rather
than essay, or summary rather than
analysis.

Uses irrelevant details or lacks
supporting evidence entirely. May be
unduly brief.

Style/Grammar

Chooses words for their precise
meaning and uses an appropriate
level of specificity. Sentence style
fits paper's audience and purpose.
Sentences are varied, yet clearly
structured and carefully focused, not long and rambling.

Generally uses words accurately and
effectively, but may sometimes be
too general. Sentences generally
clear, well structured, and focused,
though some may be awkward or
ineffective.

Uses relatively vague and general
words, may use some inappropriate
language. Sentence structure
generally correct, but sentences may
be wordy, unfocused, repetitive, or
confusing.

May be too vague and abstract, or
very personal and specific. Usually
contains several awkward or
ungrammatical sentences; sentence
structure is simple or monotonous.

Usually contains many awkward
sentences, misuses words, employs
inappropriate language.

Mechanics/Presentation

Almost entirely free of spelling,
punctuation, and grammatical errors.

May contain a few errors, which may
annoy the reader but not impede
understanding.

Usually contains several mechanical
errors, which may temporarily
confuse the reader but not impede
the overall understanding.

Usually contains either many
mechanical errors or a few important
errors that block the reader's
understanding and ability to see
connections between thoughts.

Usually contains so many
mechanical errors that it is
impossible for the reader to follow
the thinking from sentence to
sentence.

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 attesting they abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests, 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 tests 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.

Course Tools:

1. Syllabus---contains the syllabus.  

 

2. Announcements---All announcements will be posted under the NEWS section on the course homepage.

 

3. Weekly Course Content Modules---I have broken down your weekly reading assignments, discussion boards, as well as any exams/quizzes that pertain to that specific week and placed them in individual weekly modules.  You will also find PowerPoints that pertain to the assigned chapters for that week.

 

4. Learning Tools---Here you will find information that may be helpful to you during this course.  This may include APA and Writing Information as well as information to aid you in researching online databases.

 

5. Email---Use email in the course site when you need to communicate with me or if you wish to communicate with other learners in the course. You can add attachments to the email. You also can email me at my university address. My university address is randy.case@mwsu.edu I will check my email periodically throughout the day (Monday – Friday) (8am – 5pm). If you send an email after 5pm during the week or on the weekends, do not expect an immediate response. Those emails sent after hours will be responded to the following day, and those sent on the weekends will be responded to the following Monday.

 

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. 

 

MISSED EXAM, OR OTHER GRADED ITEM POLICY:

Anything not completed and handed in on time will be subjected to a “0” for that specific grade. Please talk with your professor, prior to the due date, regarding circumstances that may prevent you from completing an assignment.  All assignments must be completed by 11:59pm of the due date.

Syllabus Confirmation:

I have included a syllabus confirmation assignment that can be found in the quiz section. This is a simple yes or no question confirming that you have completely read and completely understand all of the components of the syllabus for this class. This is due by June 6th at 11:59pm. If you have any questions regarding the syllabus, please contact me and I will be happy to help you. This is my way of verifying that you do understand the expectations of this course. This will account for 2% of your final grade.

 

Journals:

The class discussion board (Journals) is for you to post your comments, assessments, insights or questions on the readings for that week. This concept is slightly different than your typical discussion board where the professor posts a question and you answer it in your own words. This type of journal requires that you reflect on the week’s reading assignments and make a substantial post about a topic that interested you specifically. You may choose to comment on an assigned reading chapter, an article that pertains to that weeks’ chapter readings, or on the chapter questions presented within the text. Choose a topic that interests you that you want to elaborate on.  You can see the weeks that will include a journal assignment on the course schedule within the syllabus.  During the weeks that include journal assignments, an initial post must be submitted by Wednesday at 11:59pm.  Two substantial responses must be made within the discussion board by Saturday at 11:59pm.  For example, your first week’s assignment includes a journal entry covering Chapters 4, 5, 6, 8, & 9. Your initial journal post must be made by Wednesday, June, 3rd and your responses must be posted by Saturday, June, 6th. Each journal assignment has a max point value of 6 points. 2 points will be given for your initial post and 2 points will be given for each of your 2 response posts. No points will be given for posts that are late, as this does not allow for sufficient time to create discussions with your peers. The Journal will account for 18% of your final grade.

 

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?

 

Midterm:

In-depth exam covering specified material given from your readings. Examinations may consist of true/false, multiple choice, short answer or essay questions. Due June 27th!!!

 

Final Exam:

A comprehensive examination will consist of true/false, multiple choice, short answer or essay questions. Due July 25th!!!

 

Article Assignment:

Research a topic covered within your reading assignments that interests you.  Find a current (2010-2015) scholarly article that discusses this topic.  Submit a link to the article as well as a brief (1/2 to 1 page) summary of the article.  This is not meant to be a long and difficult task.  I simply want you to find current information that you feel is important to our profession and would be beneficial to other therapists. Due August 1st!!!

 

Application Project:                                                                                        

The intent of this project is to share ideas and advance student knowledge of assessment and care of neonatal and pediatric patients.  You will be required to submit a power point presentation on a specific neonatal or pediatric respiratory therapeutic technique that you are interested in.  Power point should be around 15 slides. EX: of advance practice techniques include ECMO, Nitric Oxide, jet ventilation, or new ventilation strategies.  You may cover something interesting that is new at the hospital you work at.  Or you may present a case study.  The project should include the indications, contraindications, hazards, and desired outcomes. You must cite your references at the end of your project.    The project must have at least 5 references. 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 June 20th***  The actual Project itself is due July 18th

LATE ASSIGNMENTS: 

Please make note of all deadlines and adhere to them.  Anything not completed and handed in on time will be considered and graded as a “0”. 

 

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

Professors have become increasingly aware of, and therefore more adamant about, plagiarism on college campuses.  Remember that copying any part of someone else’s work without properly citing it constitutes plagiarism.  Further, copying other’s ideas and portraying them as your own, even if not word for word, constitutes plagiarism.  The professor will investigate any suspected cases of academic dishonesty.  If further action is necessary, the professor will turn the incident into the proper MWSU authorities for disciplinary action. In addition to the issue of plagiarism, academic dishonesty in an online environment may include:  having someone else complete any assignment or any portion of an assignment and/or discussing via any medium, even email, any exam question.

All assigned 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! 

You are expected to do your own work just as you would be in a “traditional” classroom setting.

 

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 4223 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 attesting they abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests, 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 tests 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.

 

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 ATTENDANCE PARTICIPATION: 

Class attendance will be a portion of your grade for this class.  I do understand that certain circumstances do come up that will result in your inability to be at class.  However, I do expect you to notify me when you will not be in class.  If I begin to recognize a problem with your attendance, I will ask to meet with you to discuss the problem.  This class will meet a total of 7 times on campus.  You will receive a 1 point deduction from your Class attendance grade (which is a total of 7 points) for each class that you miss unless the absence has been discussed and approved by me.

 

Class participation is also an integral part of this course.  In order to earn the maximum amount of participation points you are expected to participate actively in and contribute to the learning experience in this course.   You should provide feedback, comments, and thoughts during the process of 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. Again, this class will meet a total of 7 times on campus. You will receive 1 point deduction from your Class Participation grade (which is a total of 7 points) for each class that you do not actively participate in.

 

The reason for this is based on the style of teaching that we will be conducting within this course. It requires your attendance and participation. 10% of final grade.

 

CASE STUDIES:

Throughout the semester, I will assign case studies that cover the reading assignments for that specific week. You are to answer these case studies using the knowledge and understanding of what you have learned from your reading assignments.  Some of these will be thought provoking and will require you to think outside the box.  Some may ask specific knowledge based questions and some may require you to utilize your own opinions and thoughts.  Your answers must have substantial information to back up your thoughts.  A simple “yes” or “no” or “I agree with that” will not suffice. Your answers need to be saved as a WORD document and placed in the appropriate dropbox in D2L by 11:59pm on the due dates listed in the course schedule. You will also need to bring a copy of your word document to class as we will be discussing that specific case study. Case Studies will not only be graded based on the accurateness of the answers but they will also be graded based on the student’s efforts and the quality of their writing. 2 points will be awarded for each correct answer. 1 point will be awarded for each attempted answer with good effort. 0 points will be given for questions not answered. The Case Studies will account for 20% of your final grade.

 

YOUTUBE VIDEO PRESENTATION:

 After graduation, many of you will quickly move into positions of education and leadership. One new aspect of health care education is the ability to create educational in-services and opportunities that are accessible online. For this project, you will each be required to create, video record, and present an educational in-service for a specific respiratory device, equipment or therapy. These video recordings should be well organized including good use of visuals. Make sure your audio can be well-understood. You must wear your scrubs for the presentation as well. Each presentation should be between 5-10 minutes long. You may do as many takes as you would like to get your final results. Each video presentation will then need to be uploaded to YouTube. I will have a specific channel created for you to upload your videos to. These uploads must be completed by April 24th at 11:59pm. This assignment is worth 35% of your final grade.

 

 

HEALTH FAIR PROJECT PRESENTATION:

As part of your final project, you will create a project that summarizes, educates, and pertains to a specific topic that correlates with respiratory.  This project is 35% of your final grade. This project will be presented as part of the Midwestern State University Health Fair which will be held on Friday March 6th, 2015 from 9-1.  During class on March 4th each group will present their project to the class for peer evaluation.

Course Tools:

 

1. Syllabus---contains the syllabus.  

 

2. Announcements---All announcements will be posted under the NEWS section on the course homepage.

 

3. Weekly Course Content Modules---I have broken down your weekly reading assignments, discussion boards, as well as any exams/quizzes that pertain to that specific week and placed them in individual weekly modules.  You will also find PowerPoints that pertain to the assigned chapters for that week.

LATE ASSIGNMENTS: 

D2L is designed so that students are locked out of the system after the deadline has passed.  Please make note of all deadlines and adhere to them.  Anything not completed and handed in on time will be considered and graded as a “0”.  All assignments must be completed by 11:59pm of the due date.

 

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

Professors have become increasingly aware of, and therefore more adamant about, plagiarism on college campuses.  Remember that copying any part of someone else’s work without properly citing it constitutes plagiarism.  Further, copying other’s ideas and portraying them as your own, even if not word for word, constitutes plagiarism.  The professor will investigate any suspected cases of academic dishonesty.  If further action is necessary, the professor will turn the incident into the proper MWSU authorities for disciplinary action. In addition to the issue of plagiarism, academic dishonesty in an online environment may include:  having someone else complete any assignment or any portion of an assignment and/or discussing via any medium, even email, any exam question.

All assigned 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! 

You are expected to do your own work just as you would be in a “traditional” classroom setting.

 

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.

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.

CLASS PARTICIPATION: 

Class participation is an integral part of this online course.  There are activities that require each student to post opinions from the readings, case studies, research, or in response to the discussion by others.  However, in order to earn the maximum amount of participation points you are expected to participate actively in and contribute to the learning experience in this course.   You should provide feedback, comments, and thoughts under dialogue and discussion. 

 

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. There is not a required length for postings as I am looking for quality and substance. 

 

Grading Scale:

A:  90-100

B:  80-89

C:  75-79

D:  70-74

F:  <69

All Discussion Boards, Quizzes, and Teaching Practicum Assignments have an open start date meaning you may work ahead during the semester to fit your personal schedule.  However, due dates have been placed and will be followed through with.

 

Syllabus Confirmation:

I have included a syllabus confirmation assignment that can be found in the quiz section. This is a simple yes or no question confirming that you have completely read and completely understand all of the components of the syllabus for this class. You have 2 weeks to complete this. If you have any questions regarding the syllabus, please contact me and I will be happy to help you. This is my way of verifying that you do understand the expectations of this course. This will account for 2% of your final grade.

 

Discussions:

Discussion content and questions will be posted on certain weeks throughout the semester.  You can see the weeks that will include a discussion assignment on the course schedule within the syllabus.  During the weeks that include discussions, an initial post must be submitted by Wednesday at 11:59pm.  Two substantial responses must be made within the discussion board by Saturday at 11:59pm.  For example, your first week’s assignment includes a discussion covering Chapter 1.  The week begins on Sunday January 18th.  Your initial discussion post must be made by Wednesday January 21st and your responses must be posted by Saturday January 24th. Each discussion has a max point value of 6 points. 2 points will be given for your initial post and 2 points will be given for each of your 2 response posts. The Discussion Board will account for 18% of your final grade.

 

Case Studies:

Throughout the semester, I will assign case studies that cover the reading assignments for that specific week. You are to answer these case studies using the knowledge and understanding of what you have learned from your reading assignments.  Some of these will be thought provoking and will require you to think outside the box.  Some may ask specific knowledge based questions and some may require you to utilize your own opinions and thoughts.  Your answers must have substantial information to back up your thoughts.  A simple “yes” or “no” or “I agree with that” will not suffice. Your answers need to be saved as a WORD document and placed in the appropriate dropbox. Case Studies will not only be graded based on the accurateness of the answers but they will also be graded based on the student’s efforts and the quality of their writing. The Case Studies will account for 20% of your final grade.

 

Quizzes/Exams:

There will be a total of four quizzes, which will cover several chapters within the text. Students are expected to analyze and apply their education knowledge during these quizzes.  Quizzes are located under assessments.  You may use learning resources to help you with the quizzes, however the quizzes are timed and may only be taken once.  90 minutes for each 20 question quiz. Quizzes/Exams account for 40% of your grade, each quiz/exam being worth 10%.

 

Teaching Practicum:

The Teaching Practicum is an actual educational presentation that you are making to a group of people.  This presentation is to be made by YOU and delivered to your audience by YOU!  You also need to create an evaluation form for your audience members to fill out. These evaluation forms must be completed by the audience members and must be submitted in the dropbox along with your presentation materials and summary page.  A document summarizing your evaluations will not be accepted. Students must work individually.  Students will select a specific topic for patient or continuing education; illustrate the need for the program; write objectives, design a relevant learning activity, conduct the learning activity, and use an appropriate evaluation process to demonstrate effectiveness. Each individual will prepare a learning activity using either a Power Point presentation, video, voice over, or module format.  Any creative format will be accepted. 20% of your final grade will depend on your presentation as it will bring together all the concepts we will be discussing throughout the semester. It is recommended that topics be selected early in the semester in order to write each section of the presentation as we are discussing it. Your education topics are your choice.  They need to pertain to healthcare in some format but I do not require that you submit a topic choice to me prior to beginning your work on the presentation.  Students will submit the completed educational model, a sign-in sheet for those that attended your presentation, completed critique forms from those who attended your presentation, as well as a summary page.  The summary page must include the date the presentation was given, the audience, objectives for the presentation, why you chose your topic and how you felt the presentation went.  Some suggestions for appropriate audiences include RT students, professional colleagues or patients/patient families.  The practicum may be an in-service, procedure demonstration, new product instruction etc.  Any presentation must include the elements outlined above.  Power points should be around 12-15 slides. You must cite your references at the end of your project.    The project must have at least 5 references. References must be current (within the last 10 years).  Use scholarly sources; apply APA style to the manuscript. ***Teaching Practicum due by April 18th, 2015!!!***

 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 4133 X20 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 attesting they abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests, 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 tests 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.

INTERVIEW PROJECT:

How do you go about becoming a better leader?

For many, if they’re honest, the answer to that question would be they ‘wing it’. It just happens. The problem is, it doesn’t ‘just happen’. Growth in leadership takes intentionality. It takes effort and hard work. When your leadership growth is haphazard, the net result is haphazard leadership. The reason being, your capacity to lead is directly related to your capacity to grow. When you stop growing, your leadership potential is stifled. This doesn’t have to be the case. There are countless books, podcasts, and conferences that can help keep you growing and expanding as a leader. But another great way to grow is to ask other leaders meaningful questions.

It may sound simple, but asking questions, and actually listening to the answers, can radically change the way you lead. If you’re mindful you’ll soon discover leaders all around you that you can learn from. It doesn’t matter if they’re “better” than you, or “worse”. It doesn’t even matter if they have a huge amount of influence, or not. What matters is your ability to engage in the act of listening and learning. From a great leader, you can learn what to do. From a “bad” leader, you can learn what not to do.

So, where do you begin?

Start by deciding to be intentional. Always be on the look-out for leaders you can interact with, then start asking questions. Depending on the person you would like to converse with, you may not have the opportunity to have a face to face conversation without an appointment, so make an appointment. I am sure most of you already have an idea of who you would like to interview, but in some instances, it may be good to think outside the box and find a leader that could bring good insight and information to you.

What questions do I ask?

If you’re stuck for what to ask, here’s a list of 20 meaningful questions that are sure to kick-start your own ideas for other questions;

1. Have you always been a leader? Do you think leadership is personality driven? In what ways have you developed and was this intentional?

2. How do you go about learning and growing as a leader? How do you ensure you don’t stagnate?

3. Do you listen to podcasts, read blogs or books? Would you have any speakers, writers, authors or resources that you can recommend?

4. Who is the one person that has had the biggest impact on your leadership over the years? How did they impact your life?

5. What does your daily routine look like? Do you have habits that you are “religious” about?

6. What behavior, or character traits, would you recommend engaging in and developing, in order to ensure a long and successful leadership career?

7. How many hours do you work in an average week? How do you manage your time with all your various responsibilities? How to you prioritize family/career?

8. Do you have any specific advice for someone going into a position of authority for the first time?

9. How do you go about making decisions? Do you have any advisors, or do you make decisions on your own? Do you have a process, or is it different each time?

10. How have you handled times of criticism, opposition, or failure? Can you tell me about a time you’ve handled it well, and one that you’ve handled not so well?

11. How do you stay motivated and inspired? Are there any tips you can give to help in this area especially over the long haul?

12. Do you have a specific vision you are working towards? What is it and how has it changed over the years?

13. How do you build teams, get people on board and enthusiastic about your vision? Do you set aside specific time to cast the vision, or does this happen along the way?

14. How do you encourage creative thinking and a pro-active mindset in those you lead?

15. How do you ensure a high level of excellence is consistently attained?

16. Where do the best ideas come from for you and your organization?

17. How do you go about choosing people to become leaders? What are the core attributes you are looking for?

18. Is there one mistake you see leaders make regularly? What is it?

19. What is your greatest weakness as a leader?

20. What is your greatest strength as a leader?

 

Before you ask anyone the above questions answer them yourself. That way you’ll actively think through how you currently lead. When a leader gives you an answer you’ll already have something to compare it with. You’ll be positioned well to engage in an authentic conversation.

The list is by no means complete. There are obviously many great questions worth asking. Those listed are intended to get your own imagination going.

The intent of this project is to share ideas and advance student knowledge of leadership development from multiple perspectives through an interview process.  You will be required to evaluate leadership development from the perspective of someone already in a leadership role.  Although a leader within a healthcare organization would be optimal, it is not required that the leader be from the healthcare setting. You will be required to submit a power point presentation that encompasses the findings from your interview.  You will be required to ask and have responses to a minimum of 15 questions.  You will need to submit a power point presentation that lists the questions you asked during your interview along with the answers you received.  You also need to include a summary that explains the overall experience of the interview along with the things that you learned during the interview process.  The Interview Project is to be submitted by Wednesday, April 1st at 11:59pm. Notice the due date is on Wednesday of this week and that is due to the Easter Break from April 2-5. You will submit your project in 2 places.  One is to be submitted in the Dropbox.  One is to be submitted in the discussion board under the Interview Project discussion post.  You will each be required to evaluate 2 of your classmates’ projects, critique them and provide feedback.  Give insightful information to your peers.  Your feedback evaluating your classmates’ projects is to be submitted by April 25th.  This interview project is worth 15% of your final grade.

CONFIDENTIALITY:  The confidentiality of those you are interviewing is paramount.  Under no circumstances, are the names of those being interviewed as well as the names of the organizations they work for, to be disclosed.  You may describe the type of facility they work at, but no names are to be given.

 

LEADERSHIP ESSAY:

In essay format, explain your leadership style, principles, and foundational skills as related to leadership assessment instruments discussed in Chapter 2, using at least four assessments. Produce results of at least four leadership-related assessments, apply those results to your leadership persona, and attach the results to your essay.  Based on Self-Assessments of your personality style, leadership style, principles, and foundational skills, devise a plan to improve your weaknesses while leveraging or enhancing your strengths.

This essay will consist of 4-5 pages of material.  I do expect well written essays that are at a college level of writing.  A rubric for the essay will be used for a grading guideline.  This essay will be due no later than April 18th at 11:59pm. The leadership essay is worth 15% of your final grade.

 

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS:

The homework portion of your grade includes a couple of simple, yet necessary components of the course.  By the end of the second week, you will need to complete the Myers Briggs Type Indicator Test.  I will have a link to the test as well as a dropbox for you to submit your results.  The Myers Briggs Test is due no later than January 31st at 11:59pm. The second homework assignment is the “Your Leadership Legacy Test”.  A link will be provided as well as a dropbox for your results. This is to be completed by March 7th. Your homework assignments make up 10% of your final grade.

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 3553-201 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 attesting they abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests, 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 tests 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.

PEDI ASTHMA ASSIGNMENT:

In an effort to become more involved with our local education towards the pediatric population about asthma and airway associated problems, we are going to work together to create a program to present to the WFISD. This will be an on-going project that we will work together on next year as well. It cannot be developed overnight. For this semester, I want you to research the educational programs and prevention methods for children that are already in existence. You will be required to turn in 2 website links to sites that utilize existing educational programs for children. Give a brief description of the program as well as where it is utilized and what age ranges it is designated for. I want as much information about the specific program that you can find so that we can eventually incorporate some of their materials or activities into our plan. This assignment is due by May 5th.

 

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.  You may choose your topic, but you need to have approval from me on the topic.  This paper will be based off of literature reviews you perform on the 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 February 23rd before class begins.

 

COMPREHENSIVE FINAL EXAM:

An in-depth comprehensive examination covering the material presented throughout the entire semester. This exam will consist of true/false, multiple choice, short answer or essay questions. 

 

PROJECT:                                                                                        

The intent of this project is to share ideas and advance student knowledge of assessment and care of neonatal and pediatric patients.  You will be required to submit a power point presentation on a specific neonatal or pediatric respiratory therapeutic technique, disease, condition, or procedure.  Power point should be around 15 slides. You must cite your references at the end of your project.    The project must have at least 5 references. References must be current (within the last 10 years).  Use scholarly sources; apply APA style to the manuscript.  Topics will be randomly chosen during the first week.  It is your responsibility to know and remember your topic.  The Project is due APRIL 13th

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 4433-01 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 attesting they abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests, 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 tests 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

The last opportunity to drop this course with a grade of “W” is 4:00pm on October 27th.  Refer to the Undergraduate Bulletin for details about receiving a grade of “Incomplete” in a course.  In an emergency or extenuating circumstance, a student may request a grade of “Incomplete” in a course before grades are submitted.  If the instructor grants the “Incomplete,” the student has until thirty (30) days after the beginning of the next long semester to complete the course requirements.  If the student does not complete the course requirements within the deadline, the grade of “Incomplete” will automatically convert into a grade of “F.

 

Communication with the Professor:

 

Individual questions and concerns should be handled through an email directly to the professor using the email address at the top of this syllabus. Email is the best way for contacting the instructor. Please make sure you have your preferred email address as the one for your university email account to forward to as I will not use the D2L mailbox at all. Direct email to randy.case@mwsu.edu  .

 

Throughout the semester, the professor may post announcements on D2L.  Contact information for the professor is listed at the beginning of this syllabus.  Email is the preferred mode of communication.  Students must use the MSU Student Email system.   The professor will respond or at least acknowledge email messages from students within a maximum of five (5) business days when MSU is in session.  Beyond standard university holidays and breaks, the professor will notify students of any extended periods of time when email contact is not practical (professional meetings, etc).

 

Students should include the course name (RESEARCH) in the subject line of the email and include his/her name in the body of the email. If students do not use the course name, the professor will return with an email asking for more information; this will delay getting answers to students.

 

The professor will be available to meet face-to-face with any interested students if they request it.  This meeting is optional and must be confirmed by email ahead of time with the professor.     

 

Attendance

 

This is an online course and there are no mandatory sessions.  However, the student should be vigilant in logging onto D2L.  Regular checks will insure that messages from the instructor are received in a timely manner. This course is on a schedule that will be strictly adhered to. See the Course Schedule for specific information about activities and due dates.

 

 

COURSE MODULES

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.

CLASS PARTICIPATION:

Class participation is an integral part of this online course.  There are 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. There are no specific discussion board assignments like you may have seen in our other online courses, as having a discussion on PFTs could be difficult. However, you are required to make an initial introduction post and you will also use the discussion board at the end of the semester for your project submissions and feedback. I will also keep a discussion board up for students to ask questions and communicate with each other. 

 

CASE STUDIES (25% of Final Grade):

Throughout the semester, you will have a series of case studies that focus on Pulmonary Diagnostics. These Case Studies are meant for you to put the information you have gathered from your reading assignments into practice. Each Case Study will give you a situation, along with PFT results for a specific patient as well as a few questions about the case study. You are required to answer these questions in a word document and submit in the dropbox. There are a total of 4 Case Studies within the semester.

 

INTRODUCTIONS (2.5% of Final Grade):

Please post an introduction to the discussion board. Please introduce yourself with a brief overview of who you are. Give your Name, where you work, how long you have been in RT, Why you got into the profession, family, hobbies, etc.  If you would like, post a picture of yourself so we can put a face with the name! This is due by August 30th at 11:59pm.

 

 

 

 

 

SYLLABUS CONFIRMATION (2.5% of Final Grade):

After reading the syllabus in it’s entirety, please go to the syllabus confirmation tab, which will direct you to mark that you agree and understand the contents of the syllabus. This is due by August 30th at 11:59pm.

 

 

EXAMS (40% of Final Grade):

There will be four exams in this class.  These will be open book, as you may use any of your assigned resources, notes from discussions online, posted content from the professor.  You may NOT consult your classmates.  These exams may consist of multiple choices, short answer, definitions, listing, true false, and/or essay. Each exam is 30 questions and you are given 120 minutes for each exam. Once you have reached the time limit, the exam will close and be submitted for grading. Make sure you allow yourself the appropriate amount of time to take the exam in one sitting.

 

PROJECT PRESENTATION (30% of Final Grade):

Select a topic of interest to you within (Pulmonary Diagnostics Respiratory Care) and post a 15-20 slide presentation.

  • Include indications/contradictions, associated pathologies, equipment, and any new technology that may be available. 
  • What is known and reported in the literature and research about your topic?
  • Given what the literature and research say about your topic, what conclusions can you draw?
  • Will your findings affect your practice or understanding of your given topic?

You must site your references at the end of your project.   If you chose to add pictures they must also be referenced.   The project must have at least 5 references. References must be current (within the last 5 years).  Use scholarly sources; apply APA style referencing. I have included a sample APA style Powerpoint in D2L for you to reference. With that said, general rules must be followed.

•One must create parenthetical citations whenever you quote, paraphrase, or summarize information from another source.
•The parenthetical citations are generally located at the end of the sentence (before the period), or as close as possible to the text which you quoted, paraphrased, or summarized. 
•One must create parenthetical citations for all graphics used.
•The PowerPoint presentation must have a slide that is the References page . Normally this would be the last slide.
•References on the slide are formatted exactly as they would be formatted for the references page of a paper. 
 

You are not limited to but may consider the following topics:

Polysomnography, Cardiopulmonary Exercise Testing, Specialized Test Regimens, Pediatric Pulmonary Diagnostics, Quality Assurance in Pulmonary Diagnostics, Metabolic and Nutritional Assessment, Arterial Blood Gas Analysis, Challenge Testing, etc.

 

Please use the following link to help you research databases for your projects:
http://libguides.mwsu.edu/content.php?pid=285705&sid=2351294

 

Project Submission: You will need to submit your project in 2 places. The first will be in the dropbox provided. You will also need to submit/attach your project in the discussion area titled Project Downloads and Feedback. These need to be turned in to both places by November 15th at 11:59pm.

 

Student Feedback:

After presentations are posted you will provide feedback for two student’s projects.  Try and make sure everyone receives feedback! Feedback must be posted by November 22nd at 11:59pm.

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-X10 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 attesting they abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests, 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 tests 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 discussion board (Journals) is for you to post your comments, assessments, insights or questions on the readings for that week. This concept is slightly different than your typical discussion board where the professor posts a question and you answer it in your own words. This type of journal requires that you reflect on the week’s reading assignments and make a substantial post about a topic that interested you specifically. You may choose to comment on an assigned reading chapter, an article that pertains to that week’s chapter readings, or on the chapter questions presented within the text. Choose a topic that interests you that you want to elaborate on.  You can see the weeks that will include a journal assignment on the course schedule within the syllabus.  During the weeks that include journal assignments, an initial post must be submitted by Wednesday at 11:59pm.  Two substantial responses must be made within the discussion board by Saturday at 11:59pm.  For example, your first week’s assignment includes a journal entry covering Chapters 4, 5, 6. Your initial journal post must be made by Wednesday, August 27th and your responses must be posted by Saturday, August 30th. Each journal assignment has a max point value of 6 points. 2 points will be given for your initial post and 2 points will be given for each of your 2 response posts. 1 point will be deducted for each post that is submitted late.

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?

EXAMS: 50% of Total Grade In-depth exams covering specified material given from your readings. Examinations may consist of true/false, multiple choice, short answer or essay questions. Each exam is worth 12.5% of your total grade, therefore your exams combined are worth 50% of your total grade. 

HOMEWORK: 5% of Total Grade

SYLLABUS CONFIRMATION: The syllabus confirmation is to verify that you have read, understand, and agree to the syllabus in its entirety. The syllabus confirmation is worth 20% of your homework grade.

ARTICLE ASSIGNMENT: Select a topic covered within your reading assignments that interests you.  Find a current (2010-2014) scholarly article that discusses this topic.  Submit a link to the article as well as a brief (1/2 to 1 page) summary of the article.  This is not meant to be a long and difficult task.  I simply want you to find current information that you feel is important to our profession and would be beneficial to other therapists.  The Article Assignment is worth 80% of your homework grade and is due by September 20th at 11:59pm.

APPLICATIONS PROJECT: 20% of Total Grade  The intent of this project is to share ideas and advance student knowledge of assessment and care of neonatal and pediatric patients.  You will be required to submit a power point presentation on a specific neonatal or pediatric respiratory therapeutic technique that you are interested in.  Power point should be around 15 slides. EX: of advance practice techniques include NAVA, ECMO, NIV, Nitric Oxide, jet ventilation, new ventilation strategies, etc.  You may cover something interesting that is new at the hospital you work at. The project should include the indications, contraindications, hazards, and desired outcomes. You must cite your references at the end of your project.    The project must have at least 5 references. 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 27th***  The actual Project itself is due November 1st at 11:59pm. 

NEO/PEDI RESEARCH PAPER: 15% of Total Grade 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 15th at 11:59pm.

LATE ASSIGNMENTS: 

D2L is designed so that students are locked out of the system after the deadline has passed.  Please make note of all deadlines and adhere to them.  Anything not completed and handed in on time will be considered and graded as a “0”.  All assignments must be completed by 11:59pm of the due date.

 

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

Professors have become increasingly aware of, and therefore more adamant about, plagiarism on college campuses.  Remember that copying any part of someone else’s work without properly citing it constitutes plagiarism.  Further, copying other’s ideas and portraying them as your own, even if not word for word, constitutes plagiarism.  The professor will investigate any suspected cases of academic dishonesty.  If further action is necessary, the professor will turn the incident into the proper MWSU authorities for disciplinary action. In addition to the issue of plagiarism, academic dishonesty in an online environment may include:  having someone else complete any assignment or any portion of an assignment and/or discussing via any medium, even email, any exam question.

All assigned 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! 

You are expected to do your own work just as you would be in a “traditional” classroom setting.

 

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 4223-x30 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 attesting they abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests, 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 tests 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.

 

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 activities that require each student to post opinions from the readings, case studies, research, or in response to the discussion by others.  However, in order to earn the maximum amount of participation points you are expected to participate actively in and contribute to the learning experience in this course.   You should provide feedback, comments, and thoughts under dialogue and discussion. 

 

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. There is not a required length for postings as I am looking for quality and substance. 

 

Grading Scale:

 

A:  90-100

B:  80-89

C:  75-79

D:  70-74

F:  <69

 

A minimum grade of 75 (C) is required in all respiratory courses.  Failure to attain a minimum grade of C will prevent the student from progressing in the program. 

 

Evaluation:

 

Discussion Boards                                                15%

Case Studies                                           20%

Teaching Practicum                                  25%

Quizzes                                                  40%

 

All Discussion Boards, Quizzes, and Teaching Practicum Assignments have an open start date meaning you may work ahead during the semester to fit your personal schedule.  However, due dates have been placed and will be followed through with.

 

Discussions:

Discussion content and questions will be posted on certain weeks throughout the semester.  You can see the weeks that will include a discussion assignment on the course schedule within the syllabus.  During the weeks that include discussions, an initial post must be submitted by Wednesday at 11:59pm.  Two substantial responses must be made within the discussion board by Saturday at 11:59pm.  For example, your first week’s assignment includes a discussion covering Chapter 1.   Your initial discussion post must be made by Wednesday June 4th and your responses must be posted by Saturday June 7th. Each discussion has a max point value of 6 points. 2 points will be given for your initial post and 2 points will be given for each of your 2 response posts. The Discussion Board will account for 15% of your final grade.

 

Case Studies:

Throughout the semester, I will assign case studies that cover the reading assignments for that specific week.  I will not assign case studies during the same weeks you have discussion boards.  You are to answer these case studies using the knowledge and understanding of what you have learned from your reading assignments.  Some of these will be thought provoking and will require you to think outside the box.  Some may ask specific knowledge based questions and some may require you to utilize your own opinions and thoughts.  Your answers must have substantial information to back up your thoughts.  A simple “yes” or “no” or “I agree with that” will not suffice. Your answers need to be saved as a WORD document and placed in the appropriate dropbox. Case Studies will not only be graded based on the accurateness of the answers but they will also be graded based on the students efforts and the quality of their writing. The Case Studies will account for 20% of your final grade.

 

Quizzes/Exams:

There will be a total of four quizzes, which will cover several chapters within the text. Students are expected to analyze and apply their education knowledge during these quizzes.  Quizzes are located under assessments.  You may use learning resources to help you with the quizzes, however the quizzes are timed and may only be taken once.  90 minutes for each quiz. Quizzes/Exams account for 40% of your grade, each quiz/exam being worth 10%.

 

Teaching Practicum:

The Teaching Practicum is an actual educational presentation that you are making to a group of people.  This presentation is to be made by YOU and delivered to your audience by YOU!  You also need to create an evaluation form for your audience members to fill out. These evaluation forms must be completed by the audience members and must be submitted in the dropbox along with your presentation materials and summary page.  A document summarizing your evaluations will not be accepted. Students must work individually.  Students will select a specific topic for patient or continuing education; illustrate the need for the program; write objectives, design a relevant learning activity, conduct the learning activity, and use an appropriate evaluation process to demonstrate effectiveness. Each individual will prepare a learning activity using either a Power Point presentation, video, voice over, or module format.  Any creative format will be accepted. 25% of your final grade will depend on your presentation as it will bring together all the concepts we will be discussing throughout the semester. It is recommended that topics be selected early in the semester in order to write each section of the presentation as we are discussing it. Your education topics are your choice.  They need to pertain to healthcare in some format but I do not require that you submit a topic choice to me prior to beginning your work on the presentation.  Students will submit the completed educational model as well as a summary page.  The summary page must include the date the presentation was given, the audience, objectives for the presentation, why you chose your topic and how you felt the presentation went.  Some suggestions for appropriate audiences include RT students, professional colleagues or patients/patient families.  The practicum may be an in-service, procedure demonstration, new product instruction etc.  Any presentation must include the elements outlined above.  Power points should be around 12-15 slides. You must cite your references at the end of your project.    The project must have at least 5 references. References must be current (within the last 10 years).  Use scholarly sources; apply APA style throughout.

***Teaching Practicum due by July 26th, 2014!!!***

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.

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. 

 

DISCUSSION BOARDS:

The discussion board is for you to post your comments, assessments, insights or questions on the readings for the week. I will post a specific question/case study/or discussion topic for certain weeks throughout the semester.  Each student is required to make an initial post as their individual response to that week’s question.  Throughout the remainder of the 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 the Discussion Board. 

For the weeks designated with a discussion assignment, your initial entry should be posted by 11:59pm on Wednesday and your two responses should be posted by 11:59pm on Saturday.  Your first week includes an Introduction Discussion Board as well as the Chapter 1 Discussion Board from page 18 of your text (#6).

 

EXAMINATIONS:

Four In-depth examinations covering specified material given from your readings will be administered during the semester. Examinations may consist of true/false, multiple choice, short answer or essay questions.  Examination are to be completed by 11:59pm on their due dates. Due dates are as follows:

Exam 1 – June 14

Exam 2 – June 28

Exam 3 – July 12

Exam 4 – August 5

 

INTERVIEW PROJECT:

How do you go about becoming a better leader?

For many, if they’re honest, the answer to that question would be they ‘wing it’. It just happens. The problem is, it doesn’t ‘just happen’. Growth in leadership takes intentionality. It takes effort and hard work. When your leadership growth is haphazard, the net result is haphazard leadership. The reason being, your capacity to lead is directly related to your capacity to grow. When you stop growing, your leadership potential is stifled. This doesn’t have to be the case. There are countless books, podcasts, and conferences that can help keep you growing and expanding as a leader. But another great way to grow is to ask other leaders meaningful questions.

It may sound simple, but asking questions, and actually listening to the answers, can radically change the way you lead. If you’re mindful you’ll soon discover leaders all around you that you can learn from. It doesn’t matter if they’re “better” than you, or “worse”. It doesn’t even matter if they have a huge amount of influence, or not. What matters is your ability to engage in the act of listening and learning. From a great leader, you can learn what to do. From a “bad” leader, you can learn what not to do.

So, where do you begin?

Start by deciding to be intentional. Always be on the look-out for leaders you can interact with, then start asking questions. Depending on the person you would like to converse with, you may not have the opportunity to have a face to face conversation without an appointment, so make an appointment. I am sure most of you already have an idea of who you would like to interview, but in some instances, it may be good to think outside the box and find a leader that could bring good insight and information to you.

What questions do I ask?

If you’re stuck for what to ask, here’s a list of 20 meaningful questions that are sure to kick-start your own ideas for other questions;

1. Have you always been a leader? Do you think leadership is personality driven? In what ways have you developed and was this intentional?

2. How do you go about learning and growing as a leader? How do you ensure you don’t stagnate?

3. Do you listen to podcasts, read blogs or books? Would you have any speakers, writers, authors or resources that you can recommend?

4. Who is the one person that has had the biggest impact on your leadership over the years? How did they impact your life?

5. What does your daily routine look like? Do you have habits that you are “religious” about?

6. What behavior, or character traits, would you recommend engaging in and developing, in order to ensure a long and successful leadership career?

7. How many hours do you work in an average week? How do you manage your time with all your various responsibilities? How to you prioritize family/career?

8. Do you have any specific advice for someone going into a position of authority for the first time?

9. How do you go about making decisions? Do you have any advisors, or do you make decisions on your own? Do you have a process, or is it different each time?

10. How have you handled times of criticism, opposition, or failure? Can you tell me about a time you’ve handled it well, and one that you’ve handled not so well?

11. How do you stay motivated and inspired? Are there any tips you can give to help in this area especially over the long haul?

12. Do you have a specific vision you are working towards? What is it and how has it changed over the years?

13. How do you build teams, get people on board and enthusiastic about your vision? Do you set aside specific time to cast the vision, or does this happen along the way?

14. How do you encourage creative thinking and a pro-active mindset in those you lead?

15. How do you ensure a high level of excellence is consistently attained?

16. Where do the best ideas come from for you and your organization?

17. How do you go about choosing people to become leaders? What are the core attributes you are looking for?

18. Is there one mistake you see leaders make regularly? What is it?

19. What is your greatest weakness as a leader?

20. What is your greatest strength as a leader?

 

Before you ask anyone the above questions answer them yourself. That way you’ll actively think through how you currently lead. When a leader gives you an answer you’ll already have something to compare it with. You’ll be positioned well to engage in an authentic conversation.

The list is by no means complete. There are obviously many great questions worth asking. Those listed are intended to get your own imagination going.

The intent of this project is to share ideas and advance student knowledge of leadership development from multiple perspectives through an interview process.  You will be required to evaluate leadership development from the perspective of someone already in a leadership role.  Although a leader within a healthcare organization would be optimal, it is not required that the leader be from the healthcare setting. You will be required to submit a presentation of your liking that encompasses the findings from your interview.  You will be required to ask and have responses to a minimum of 10 questions.  You will need to submit a Word document that lists the questions you asked during your interview along with the answers you received.  You need to include a summary that explains the overall experience of the interview along with the things that you learned during the interview process.  The Interview Project is to be submitted by July 19th at 11:59pm. You will submit your project in 2 places.  One is to be submitted in the Dropbox.  One is to be submitted in the discussion board under the Interview Project discussion post.  You will each be required to evaluate 2 of your classmates’ projects, critique them and provide feedback.  Give insightful information to your peers.  Your feedback evaluating your classmates projects is to be submitted by July 26th.

CONFIDENTIALITY:  The confidentiality of those you are interviewing is paramount.  Under no circumstances, are the names of those being interviewed as well as the names of the organizations they work for, to be disclosed.  You may describe the type of facility they work at, but no names are to be given.

 

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS:

The homework portion of your grade includes a couple of simple, yet necessary components of the course.  First is that each of you completely read the syllabus and complete the syllabus confirmation. I have a dropbox for this that has all of the instructions.  The syllabus confirmation is due no later than June 7th, 2014 at 11:59pm. Also, by the end of the third week, you will need to complete the Myers Briggs Type Indicator Test.  I will have a link to the test as well as a dropbox for you to submit your results.  The Myers Briggs Test is due no later than June 21st, 2014 at 11:59pm. Lastly, is the Leadership Legacy Assessment Test that is to be completed during the ninth week and is due no later than August 2nd at 11:59pm. There is a link in the assignment and you will submit your results in the dropbox.

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 attesting they abided by this rule.

Cheating includes, but is not limited to, (1) use of any unauthorized assistance in taking quizzes, tests, 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 tests 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.

If you send an email after 5pm during the week or on the weekends, do not expect an immediate response. Those emails sent after hours will be responded to the following day, and those sent on the weekends will be responded to the following Monday.

 

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. 

 

MISSED EXAM, OR OTHER GRADED ITEM POLICY:

Anything not completed and handed in on time will be subjected to a “0” for that specific grade. Please talk with your professor, prior to the due date, regarding circumstances that may prevent you from completing an assignment.  All assignments must be completed by 11:59pm of the due date.

Journals:

The class discussion board (Journals) is for you to post your comments, assessments, insights or questions on the readings for that week. This concept is slightly different than your typical discussion board where the professor posts a question and you answer it in your own words. This type of journal requires that you reflect on the week’s reading assignments and make a substantial post about a topic that interested you specifically. You may choose to comment on an assigned reading chapter, an article that pertains to that weeks chapter readings, or on the chapter questions presented within the text. Choose a topic that interests you that you want to elaborate on.  You can see the weeks that will include a journal assignment on the course schedule within the syllabus.  During the weeks that include journal assignments, an initial post must be submitted by Wednesday at 11:59pm.  Two substantial responses must be made within the discussion board by Saturday at 11:59pm.  For example, your first week’s assignment includes a journal entry covering Chapters 4, 5, 6, 8, & 9. Your initial journal post must be made by Wednesday, June, 4th and your responses must be posted by Saturday, June, 7th. Each journal assignment has a max point value of 6 points. 2 points will be given for your initial post and 2 points will be given for each of your 2 response posts. 1 point will be deducted for each post that is submitted late. The Journal will account for 15% of your final grade.

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?

 

Midterm:

In-depth exam covering specified material given from your readings. Examinations may consist of true/false, multiple choice, short answer or essay questions. Due June 28th!!!

 

Final Exam:

A comprehensive examination will consist of true/false, multiple choice, short answer or essay questions. Due July 26th!!!

 

Article Assignment:

Research a topic covered within your reading assignments that interests you.  Find a current (2010-2014) scholarly article that discusses this topic.  Submit a link to the article as well as a brief (1/2 to 1 page) summary of the article.  This is not meant to be a long and difficult task.  I simply want you to find current information that you feel is important to our profession and would be beneficial to other therapists. Due August 2nd!!!

 

Application Project:                                                                                        

The intent of this project is to share ideas and advance student knowledge of assessment and care of neonatal and pediatric patients.  You will be required to submit a power point presentation on a specific neonatal or pediatric respiratory therapeutic technique that you are interested in.  Power point should be around 15 slides. EX: of advance practice techniques include ECMO, Nitric Oxide, jet ventilation, or new ventilation strategies.  You may cover something interesting that is new at the hospital you work at.  Or you may present a case study.  The project should include the indications, contraindications, hazards, and desired outcomes. You must cite your references at the end of your project.    The project must have at least 5 references. 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 June 21st***  The actual Project itself is due July 19th

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

 

 

LATE ASSIGNMENTS: 

Please make note of all deadlines and adhere to them.  Anything not completed and handed in on time will be considered and graded as a “0”. 

 

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

Professors have become increasingly aware of, and therefore more adamant about, plagiarism on college campuses.  Remember that copying any part of someone else’s work without properly citing it constitutes plagiarism.  Further, copying other’s ideas and portraying them as your own, even if not word for word, constitutes plagiarism.  The professor will investigate any suspected cases of academic dishonesty.  If further action is necessary, the professor will turn the incident into the proper MWSU authorities for disciplinary action. In addition to the issue of plagiarism, academic dishonesty in an online environment may include:  having someone else complete any assignment or any portion of an assignment and/or discussing via any medium, even email, any exam question.

All assigned 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! 

You are expected to do your own work just as you would be in a “traditional” classroom setting.

 

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 4223 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.

 

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.

 

 

Grading Scale:

 

A:  90-100

B:  80-89

C:  75-79

D:  70-74

F:  <69

 

A minimum grade of 75 (C) is required in all respiratory courses.  Failure to attain a minimum grade of C will prevent the student from progressing in the program. 

 

Evaluation:

 

Attendance/Participation/Syllabus Confirm   15%

Case Studies                                           20%

Health Care Poster Presentation                  25%

Quizzes                                                  40%

 

 

CLASS ATTENDANCE PARTICIPATION: 

Class attendance (45%) will be a portion of your grade for this class.  I do understand that certain circumstances do come up that will result in your inability to be at class.  However, I do expect you to notify me when you will not be in class.  If I begin to recognize a problem with your attendance, I will ask to meet with you to discuss the problem.  This class will meet a total of 10 times.  You will receive a 1 point deduction from your Class attendance grade (which is a total of 10 points) for each class that you miss unless the absence has been discussed and approved by me.

 

Class participation (45%) is also an integral part of this course.  In order to earn the maximum amount of participation points you are expected to participate actively in and contribute to the learning experience in this course.   You should provide feedback, comments, and thoughts during the process of 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. Again, this class will meet a total of 10 times. You will receive 1 point deduction from your Class Participation grade (which is a total of 10 points) for each class that you do not actively participate in.

 

The reason for this is based on the style of teaching that we will be conducting within this course. It requires your attendance and participation.

 

I have also included a Syllabus Confirmation, which states that you are aware and understand the expectations of this course. This confirmation will be a portion of your grade and will consist of 10% of your attendance/participation grade.

 

CASE STUDIES:

Throughout the semester, I will assign case studies that cover the reading assignments for that specific week. You are to answer these case studies using the knowledge and understanding of what you have learned from your reading assignments.  Some of these will be thought provoking and will require you to think outside the box.  Some may ask specific knowledge based questions and some may require you to utilize your own opinions and thoughts.  Your answers must have substantial information to back up your thoughts.  A simple “yes” or “no” or “I agree with that” will not suffice. Your answers need to be saved as a WORD document and placed in the appropriate dropbox in D2L by 7:59am on the day it is due. You will also need to bring a copy of your word document to class on the day it is due as we will be discussing that specific case study. Case Studies will not only be graded based on the accurateness of the answers but they will also be graded based on the student’s efforts and the quality of their writing. 2 points will be awarded for each correct answer. 1 point will be awarded for each attempted answer with good effort. 0 points will be given for questions not answered. The Case Studies will account for 20% of your final grade.

 

QUIZZES:

There will be a total of four quizzes, which will cover several chapters within the text. Students are expected to analyze and apply their education knowledge during these quizzes.  Quizzes are located under assessments.  You may use learning resources to help you with the quizzes, however the quizzes are timed and may only be taken once.  90 minutes for each 20 question quiz. Quizzes/Exams account for 40% of your grade, each quiz/exam being worth 10%.

 

HEALTH FAIR PROJECT PRESENTATION:

As part of your final project, you will create a project that summarizes your topic.  This project will be presented as part of the Midwestern State University Health Fair which will be held on Friday March 7th, 2014 from 9-1.  During class on March 5th each group will present their project to the class for peer evaluation.

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

 

 

LATE ASSIGNMENTS: 

Please make note of all deadlines and adhere to them.  Anything not completed and handed in on time will be considered and graded as a “0”. 

 

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

Professors have become increasingly aware of, and therefore more adamant about, plagiarism on college campuses.  Remember that copying any part of someone else’s work without properly citing it constitutes plagiarism.  Further, copying other’s ideas and portraying them as your own, even if not word for word, constitutes plagiarism.  The professor will investigate any suspected cases of academic dishonesty.  If further action is necessary, the professor will turn the incident into the proper MWSU authorities for disciplinary action. In addition to the issue of plagiarism, academic dishonesty in an online environment may include:  having someone else complete any assignment or any portion of an assignment and/or discussing via any medium, even email, any exam question.

All assigned 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! 

You are expected to do your own work just as you would be in a “traditional” classroom setting.

 

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 4223 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.

 

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.

Evaluation:

 

Attendance/Participation/Syllabus Confirm   15%

Case Studies                                           20%

Health Care Poster Presentation                  25%

Quizzes                                                  40%

 

 

CLASS ATTENDANCE PARTICIPATION: 

Class attendance (45%) will be a portion of your grade for this class.  I do understand that certain circumstances do come up that will result in your inability to be at class.  However, I do expect you to notify me when you will not be in class.  If I begin to recognize a problem with your attendance, I will ask to meet with you to discuss the problem.  This class will meet a total of 10 times.  You will receive a 1 point deduction from your Class attendance grade (which is a total of 10 points) for each class that you miss unless the absence has been discussed and approved by me.

 

Class participation (45%) is also an integral part of this course.  In order to earn the maximum amount of participation points you are expected to participate actively in and contribute to the learning experience in this course.   You should provide feedback, comments, and thoughts during the process of 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. Again, this class will meet a total of 10 times. You will receive 1 point deduction from your Class Participation grade (which is a total of 10 points) for each class that you do not actively participate in.

 

The reason for this is based on the style of teaching that we will be conducting within this course. It requires your attendance and participation.

 

I have also included a Syllabus Confirmation, which states that you are aware and understand the expectations of this course. This confirmation will be a portion of your grade and will consist of 10% of your attendance/participation grade.

 

CASE STUDIES:

Throughout the semester, I will assign case studies that cover the reading assignments for that specific week. You are to answer these case studies using the knowledge and understanding of what you have learned from your reading assignments.  Some of these will be thought provoking and will require you to think outside the box.  Some may ask specific knowledge based questions and some may require you to utilize your own opinions and thoughts.  Your answers must have substantial information to back up your thoughts.  A simple “yes” or “no” or “I agree with that” will not suffice. Your answers need to be saved as a WORD document and placed in the appropriate dropbox in D2L by 7:59am on the day it is due. You will also need to bring a copy of your word document to class on the day it is due as we will be discussing that specific case study. Case Studies will not only be graded based on the accurateness of the answers but they will also be graded based on the student’s efforts and the quality of their writing. 2 points will be awarded for each correct answer. 1 point will be awarded for each attempted answer with good effort. 0 points will be given for questions not answered. The Case Studies will account for 20% of your final grade.

 

QUIZZES:

There will be a total of four quizzes, which will cover several chapters within the text. Students are expected to analyze and apply their education knowledge during these quizzes.  Quizzes are located under assessments.  You may use learning resources to help you with the quizzes, however the quizzes are timed and may only be taken once.  90 minutes for each 20 question quiz. Quizzes/Exams account for 40% of your grade, each quiz/exam being worth 10%.

 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 4133 X20 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. 

 

DISCUSSION BOARDS:

The discussion board is for you to post your comments, assessments, insights or questions on the readings for the week. I will post a specific question/case study/or discussion topic for certain weeks throughout the semester.  Each student is required to make an initial post as their individual response to that week’s question.  Throughout the remainder of the 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 the Discussion Board. 

For the weeks designated with a discussion assignment, your initial entry should be posted by 11:59pm on Wednesday and your two responses should be posted by 11:59pm on Saturday.  Your first week includes an Introduction Discussion Board as well as the Chapter 1 Discussion Board from page 18 of your text (#6).

 

EXAMINATIONS:

Four In-depth examinations covering specified material given from your readings will be administered during the semester. Examinations may consist of true/false, multiple choice, short answer or essay questions.  Examination are to be completed by 11:59pm on their due dates. Due dates are as follows:

Exam 1 – February 8.

Exam 2 – March 8

Exam 3 – April 5

Exam 4 – May 6

 

INTERVIEW PROJECT:

How do you go about becoming a better leader?

For many, if they’re honest, the answer to that question would be they ‘wing it’. It just happens. The problem is, it doesn’t ‘just happen’. Growth in leadership takes intentionality. It takes effort and hard work. When your leadership growth is haphazard, the net result is haphazard leadership. The reason being, your capacity to lead is directly related to your capacity to grow. When you stop growing, your leadership potential is stifled. This doesn’t have to be the case. There are countless books, podcasts, and conferences that can help keep you growing and expanding as a leader. But another great way to grow is to ask other leaders meaningful questions.

It may sound simple, but asking questions, and actually listening to the answers, can radically change the way you lead. If you’re mindful you’ll soon discover leaders all around you that you can learn from. It doesn’t matter if they’re “better” than you, or “worse”. It doesn’t even matter if they have a huge amount of influence, or not. What matters is your ability to engage in the act of listening and learning. From a great leader, you can learn what to do. From a “bad” leader, you can learn what not to do.

So, where do you begin?

Start by deciding to be intentional. Always be on the look-out for leaders you can interact with, then start asking questions. Depending on the person you would like to converse with, you may not have the opportunity to have a face to face conversation without an appointment, so make an appointment. I am sure most of you already have an idea of who you would like to interview, but in some instances, it may be good to think outside the box and find a leader that could bring good insight and information to you.

What questions do I ask?

If you’re stuck for what to ask, here’s a list of 20 meaningful questions that are sure to kick-start your own ideas for other questions;

1. Have you always been a leader? Do you think leadership is personality driven? In what ways have you developed and was this intentional?

2. How do you go about learning and growing as a leader? How do you ensure you don’t stagnate?

3. Do you listen to podcasts, read blogs or books? Would you have any speakers, writers, authors or resources that you can recommend?

4. Who is the one person that has had the biggest impact on your leadership over the years? How did they impact your life?

5. What does your daily routine look like? Do you have habits that you are “religious” about?

6. What behavior, or character traits, would you recommend engaging in and developing, in order to ensure a long and successful leadership career?

7. How many hours do you work in an average week? How do you manage your time with all your various responsibilities? How to you prioritize family/career?

8. Do you have any specific advice for someone going into a position of authority for the first time?

9. How do you go about making decisions? Do you have any advisors, or do you make decisions on your own? Do you have a process, or is it different each time?

10. How have you handled times of criticism, opposition, or failure? Can you tell me about a time you’ve handled it well, and one that you’ve handled not so well?

11. How do you stay motivated and inspired? Are there any tips you can give to help in this area especially over the long haul?

12. Do you have a specific vision you are working towards? What is it and how has it changed over the years?

13. How do you build teams, get people on board and enthusiastic about your vision? Do you set aside specific time to cast the vision, or does this happen along the way?

14. How do you encourage creative thinking and a pro-active mindset in those you lead?

15. How do you ensure a high level of excellence is consistently attained?

16. Where do the best ideas come from for you and your organization?

17. How do you go about choosing people to become leaders? What are the core attributes you are looking for?

18. Is there one mistake you see leaders make regularly? What is it?

19. What is your grea weakness as a leader?

20. What is your grea strength as a leader?

 

Before you ask anyone the above questions answer them yourself. That way you’ll actively think through how you currently lead. When a leader gives you an answer you’ll already have something to compare it with. You’ll be positioned well to engage in an authentic conversation.

The list is by no means complete. There are obviously many great questions worth asking. Those listed are intended to get your own imagination going.

The intent of this project is to share ideas and advance student knowledge of leadership development from multiple perspectives through an interview process.  You will be required to evaluate leadership development from the perspective of someone already in a leadership role.  Although a leader within a healthcare organization would be optimal, it is not required that the leader be from the healthcare setting. You will be required to submit a presentation of your liking that encompasses the findings from your interview.  You will be required to ask and have responses to a minimum of 10 questions.  You will need to submit a Word document that lists the questions you asked during your interview along with the answers you received.  You need to include a summary that explains the overall experience of the interview along with the things that you learned during the interview process.  The Interview Project is to be submitted by March 29th at 11:59pm. You will submit your project in 2 places.  One is to be submitted in the Dropbox.  One is to be submitted in the discussion board under the Interview Project discussion post.  You will each be required to evaluate 2 of your classmates’ projects, critique them and provide feedback.  Give insightful information to your peers.  Your feedback evaluating your classmates projects is to be submitted by April 19th.

CONFIDENTIALITY:  The confidentiality of those you are interviewing is paramount.  Under no circumstances, are the names of those being interviewed as well as the names of the organizations they work for, to be disclosed.  You may describe the type of facility they work at, but no names are to be given.

 

LEADERSHIP ESSAY:

In essay format, explain your leadership style, principles, and foundational skills as related to leadership assessment instruments discussed in Chapter 2, using at least four assessments. Produce results of at least four leadership-related assessments, apply those results to your leadership persona, and attach the results to your essay.  Based on Self-Assessments of your personality style, leadership style, principles, and foundational skills, devise a plan to improve your weaknesses while leveraging or enhancing your strengths.

This essay will consist of 4-5 pages of material.  I do expect well written essays that are at a college level of writing.  A rubric for the essay will be used for a grading guideline.  This essay will be due no later than April 12th at 11:59pm.

 

HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS:

The homework portion of your grade includes a couple of simple, yet necessary components of the course.  First is that each of you completely read the syllabus and complete the syllabus confirmation. I have a dropbox for this that has all of the instructions.  The syllabus confirmation is due no later than January 18th, 2014 at 11:59pm. Also, by the end of the second week, you will need to complete the Myers Briggs Type Indicator .  I will have a link to the as well as a dropbox for you to submit your results.  The Myers Briggs is due no later than January 25th, 2014 at 11:59pm.

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.

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.

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. There is not a required length for postings as I am looking for quality and substance.

 

EXAMS:

 

There will be four exams in this class.  These will be open book, as you may use any of your assigned resources, notes from discussions online, posted content from the professor.  You may NOT consult your classmates.  These exams may consist of multiple choices, short answer, definitions, listing, true false, and/or essay.   Your exams are timed and must be completed within the time limit. 

PROJECT:

Select a topic of interest to you within (Pulmonary Diagnostics Respiratory Care) and post a 15-20 slide presentation.

  • Include indications/contradictions, associated pathologies, equipment, and any new technology that may be available. 
  • What is known and reported in the literature and research about your topic?
  • Given what the literature and research say about your topic, what conclusions can you draw?
  • Will your findings affect your practice or understanding of your given topic?

You must site your references at the end of your project.   If you chose to add pictures they must also be referenced.   The project must have at least 5 references. References must be current (within the last 5 years).  Use scholarly sources; apply APA style referencing. Refer to provided power point presentation. 

APA does not offer specific advice on how to cite within a PowerPoint. But one can assume that a PowerPoint is simply a paper and that all the rules that apply to a paper apply to the PowerPoint. In-text citations (or parenthetical citations) point your viewer to specific entries on the References page.

With that said, general rules must be followed.

•One must create parenthetical citations whenever you quote, paraphrase, or summarize information from another source.
•The parenthetical citations are generally located at the end of the sentence (before the period), or as close as possible to the text which you quoted, paraphrased, or summarized. 
•One must create parenthetical citations for all graphics used.
•The PowerPoint presentation must have a slide that is the References page . Normally this would be the last slide.
•References on the slide are formatted exactly as they would be formatted for the references page of a paper. 

I will add a link to the course content page with an example of a power point in which APA format is used. Remember that the placement of the parenthetical citation on a slide is not absolute. However, it should be apparent to the viewer where the information is coming from.

You are not limited to but may consider the following topics:

Polysomnography

Cardiopulmonary Exercise ing

Specialized Regimens

Pediatric Pulmonary Diagnostics

Quality Assurance in Pulmonary Diagnostics

Metabolic and Nutritional Assessment

Arterial Blood Gas Analysis

 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.

LATE ASSIGNMENTS: 

 

D2L is designed so that students are locked out of the system after the deadline has passed.  Please make note of all deadlines and adhere to them.  Anything not completed and handed in on time will be subjected to a 15% per day penalty (weekends and holidays included).  All assignments must be completed by midnight of the due date.

ACADEMIC HONESTY:

Professors have become increasingly aware of, and therefore more adamant about, plagiarism on college campuses.  Remember that copying any part of someone else’s work without properly citing it constitutes plagiarism.  Further, copying other’s ideas and portraying them as your own, even if not word for word, constitutes plagiarism.  The professor will investigate any suspected cases of academic dishonesty.  If further action is necessary, the professor will turn the incident into the proper MWSU authorities for disciplinary action. In addition to the issue of plagiarism, academic dishonesty in an online environment may include:  having someone else complete any assignment or any portion of an assignment and/or discussing via any medium, even email, any exam question.

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! 

You are expected to do your own work just as you would be in a “traditional” classroom setting.

 

Grading Scale:

 

A:  90-100

B:  80-89

C:  75-79

D:  70-74

F:  <69

 

A minimum grade of 75 (C) is required in all respiratory courses.  Failure to attain a minimum grade of C will prevent the student from progressing in the program. 

 

 

Evaluation:

 

Educational Philosophy Paper                               20%

Discussions                                                       20%             

Teaching Practicum                                            30%

Quizzes                                                            30%

 

 

 

Discussions:

Discussion content and questions will be posted on certain weeks throughout the semester.  You can see the weeks that will include a discussion assignment on the course schedule within the syllabus. 

 

Quizzes:

There will be a total of four quizzes, which will cover several chapters within the text. Students are expected to analyze and apply their education knowledge during these quizzes.  Quizzes are located under assessments.  You may use learning resources to help you with the quizzes, however the quizzes are timed.

 

CLASS PARTICIPATION

Class participation is an integral part of this online course.  There are activities that require each student to post opinions from the readings, case studies, research, or in response to the discussion by others.  However, in order to earn the maximum amount of participation points you are expected to participate actively in and contribute to the learning experience in this course.   You should provide feedback, comments, and thoughts under dialogue and discussion. 

 

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. There is not a required length for postings as I am looking for quality and substance.

 

 

Educational Philosophy Paper

 

Examination of one's philosophy of education is primary to beginning either patient or staff education.  This paper should be 3 pages in length (excluding cover page and references) using APA guidelines. An abstract will not be required. 

 

Questions to be answered in this paper include:

 Part I) your view of education, your experiences which have formed that view, and the impact on teaching and learning your views will have or have had,

 

Part II) choose an educational theorist with whom you identify and briefly discuss his/her theory (Chapter 3 as reference).  This paper will constitute 20% of your grade. This paper will be submitted per the Educational Philosophy Paper icon on the homepage.

Teaching Practicum:

Students must work individually.  Students will select a specific topic for patient or continuing education; illustrate the need for the program; write objectives, design a relevant learning activity, conduct the learning activity, and use an appropriate evaluation process to demonstrate effectiveness. Each individual will prepare a learning activity using either a Power Point presentation, video, voice over, or module format.  Any creative format will be accepted. 30% of your grade will depend on your presentation as it will bring together all the concepts we will be discussing throughout the semester. It is recommended that topics be selected early in the semester in order to write each section of the presentation as we are discussing it. Students will submit the completed educational model for evaluation and a summary page must be prepared which will include date the presentation was given, the audience, and feedback generated by the participants.  Some suggestions for appropriate audiences include RT students, professional colleagues or patients/patient families.  The practicum may be an in-service, procedure demonstration, new product instruction etc.  Any presentation must include the elements outlined above.  You will also post a summary of the teaching practicum on the presentation site for the class to view and evaluate.
