Course Outline and Requirements

Class Behavior

Whether in a face to face traditional classroom or in a virtual online classroom we need to establish and maintain an environment that is conducive to teaching and learning.   Please assist me in doing this.  We can not tolerate any behavior that is disruptive in any manner nor undermining the instructional program.

Unacceptable behavior including but not limited to behavior that is distracting, disruptive, undermining or insulting or demeaning will not be ignored and will be reported if not halted immediately upon request from the instructor.  Repeated offenses may result in removal from the class.

ONLINE Class Behavior

The above message applies to those in an online class just as well as to those in the traditional classroom setting.  In the online virtual classroom repeated offenses will result in being barred from participation in the class.
