Purposes or Objectives of the Course
Student Learning Outcomes
Expectations of Students
Although not every area listed below will be covered each week, a typical format is as follows:
Required Materials and Equipment
Basis for Student Evaluation
We will work on a daily assignment system. There are 12 class sessions and during each class you will receive and complete an assignment. The assignments consist of breakout sessions, viewing your peers’ work, and hearing important announcements. You must complete at least 10 assignments to pass the class.
What happens if I don't complete an assignment?
If you miss two daily assignments your letter grade will go down one letter. If you miss three daily assignments, you will receive an F for the course. If you miss an assignment due to illness or other reason, documentation will be needed (a doctor’s note, for example). An alternate assignment will be arranged with the student.
What happens if I sign in and skip a breakout session?
Your faculty is working hard to bring you quality and effective breakout sessions. Any student found signing in for class and then skipping a breakout session (even once) may receive a failing grade for the class. Falsifying attendance is academic dishonesty. The University defines academic dishonesty to include those acts, which would deceive, cheat, or defraud to promote or enhance one's scholastic record. In addition to receiving an F for the course, all official academic honesty avenues will be pursued which can include disciplinary probation, suspension and expulsion. Please see the University Academic Honesty Policy: http://www.semo.edu/facultysenate/handbook/5d.html.
What happens if I leave class early?
If you leave class early, you will not receive credit for that day’s assignment. If you leave a breakout session early, (even one) you may receive a failing grade for the course. Emphasis is laid upon “I have to leave class early to get to another class on main campus.” Extra emphasis is placed upon said class on main campus being “a class that I need or I won’t graduate and it’s not offered at any other time.”
What happens if I come to class late?
Being late to this class is defined as arriving at 12:01 PM or after. As you are missing important material when you are late, late arrivals will count as one-half an absence. You must inform the instructor in person that you arrived late before we split for breakout sessions. Failure to do so will result in missing an entire assignment. Emphasis is laid upon “I have a class on main campus right before this one.” Extra emphasis is placed upon said class on main campus being “a class that I need or I won’t graduate and it’s not offered at any other time.”
The Student Bulletin states...
“Students are expected to attend all classes and to complete all assignments for courses in which they are enrolled. An absence does not relieve the student of the responsibility to complete all assignments. If an absence is associated with a university-sanctioned activity, the instructor will provide an opportunity for assignment make-up. However, it is the instructor’s decision to provide, or not to provide, make-up work related to absences for any other reason.”
What if I have announcement that I’d like to make?
Fantastic! Please email it to me and I will forward it conservatory-wide. Make sure your email is clear and includes a contact email for any questions. You will not be able to make announcements in class.
