The goals of this course

The goals of this course are to: 1. Promote active, self-directed learning by providing you with an effective combination of inclass teaching and online learning. 2. Provide you with more flexibility by allowing you to do more of your work from home and to complete online learning activities at times that best suit your weekly schedule and learning preferences. It is important to remember that: 1. All students in this course must have access to the Internet. You must use the D2L site regularly to keep up with the announcements and to complete the assigned activities. 2. Less structured classroom activities does NOT mean less work. It is expected that your active participation will enhance your learning. 3. Learning is not a spectator sport. You are expected to take the responsibility to actively use the online learning material and to manage your time so that you complete assigned reading and online activities and be prepared for classroom discussion. The following are few things you can do right away to prepare for this course: 1. I recommend you start by visiting D2L and reading the Course Information and Course Policies posted in the Content Area. These documents cover most aspects of the course and will give you a good start to success. If you have never taken a blended course before be sure to review the D2L and technology documentation and tutorials. 2. If you have any questions about the course that are not fully explained in the documents mentioned above or this syllabus, please post your questions to the "Raise Your Hand" topic in the Discussion Area. If another student has the same question, or knows the answer to your question, please share that information. I will monitor the Q&A discussion forum for new messages, but don't be surprised if another student replies before I do--I encourage it. 3. Please write an introduction for yourself that you can post in the Introductions Topic in the Discussion Area. Your introductions will help me get to know you and your classmates. These introductions are public to the whole class. With the online introductions you can share information about yourself, and the introduction remains in the course to review later as you get to know each other. I encourage you to be creative and open in introducing yourself. 4. Most importantly, print out and read this Syllabus for important due dates and readings. You are expected to refer to this document throughout the course to ensure you complete all the activities in the time allotted.
