COURSE POLICIES: Course Design: I conduct this class in an interactive manner. Everyone will be responsible for contributing to the success of the learning experience. Questions and comments are encouraged! You will have small group discussions and exercises throughout the class. I will shape our time in class to consist of maximum interaction, sharing, group work and collaboration. You will have required readings, research and work outside of class, which must be completed in advance of each class period. Bottom line up front – you must do your pre-work and home work to excel in this course. Failure to do so will result in your being unprepared and unable to contribute to in-class interaction. The bulk of the assessment and learning in the course is presented in small chunks, and will come at a very fast pace. You cannot count on the Midterm and Final to pull you through! This not only provides the opportunity to learn many things across a wide range of topics, but it also replicates life outside of college as a young officer, where you will have more to accomplish than you think you can and will need to plan your time to meet all of your suspense’s. Liberal Arts and Professional Focus: Two parallel objectives of this course, and your MSIV year, are to develop in you the essential skills an officer must possess, and deepen your understanding of the world around you. These efforts will take many forms – multiple required briefings, use of technology, frequent writing, and research and critical analysis of aspect from through the scope of a liberal education. My job as a senior officer and mentor is not only to train you in the technical basics of our profession. Those things are transitory and most often handled by your NCOs and soldiers. My job is to forge you into a competent, intelligent officer who can think critically and lead well. A basic understanding and familiarity with classical and civic knowledge, literature, science, politics, world religion, and common culture all are important for effective professional leaders. We will cover all of these things in addition to the core topics in the curriculum. Late Work: The maximum possible score on a late assignment is 75%. All point deductions will start from that score. Assignments due dates, expectations, and submission requirements will be communicated clearly. Missed exams may be made in the event of an emergency. Class Participation: You are expected to participate actively in learning through critical reflection, inquiry, dialogue, and group interactions. This includes participating in class discussion, sharing personal perspectives and experiences related to principles discussed in class or reading, working with fellow students to engage in class and online exercises, and leading lab exercises. Uniforms and Appearance: You are expected to wear ACUs (Army Combat Uniform) to all Staff Calls and Leadership Labs unless otherwise directed by the PMS and adhere to Army Regulation 670-1 and associated ALARACT messages with regard to uniforms and appearance changes. Required Course Technology: D2L will serve as the primary method of course management, announcements and information dissemination, assignment submission, and posting of grades. All assignments, projects, and exercises will require your use of D2L, WebEx, Skype, and Google Hangout. Each cadet is required to have their own computer, access to the Internet (broadband access required in most cases), headset and microphone (built in or external), and be comfortable with the use of email, D2L, WebEx, Skype, Google Hangout, and various other Internet based programs. You are expected to bring an Internet Connected Device (laptop, iPod Touch, iPad, etc.) to class with you every day. We will make use of cell phones and Internet devices in many MS410 Adaptive Leadership, Fall 2014 Syllabus Page 5 of 10
