All five of these general areas will be covered, but some in #2 - 5 may be emphasized more heavily than the others.
The course will employ a variety of instructional methods to accomplish its objectives, including some of the following:
A combination of lecture and discussion (possibly including student presentations). Some class sessions may involve formal lectures for the entire time (allowing time for questions), in which case a later class session will allow discussion of the lecture and reading material. Other class sessions may involve a combination of informal lecture and structured discussion.
After the course has been offered for at least two semesters, an alternative method of instruction may be employed involving guest lecturers and equal number of audit students (35) to the number of students taking the course for credit (35). For eight or ten weeks of the semester, a guest lecture with special expertise may be brought in for one of the two class sessions of the week (e.g., for a 90 or 100 minute lunch-time period). These sessions will also be open to audit students or to the general public, up to the specified limit of 35 additional students. The remainder of the class sessions in the semester will be reserved for students taking the course for credit.
Evaluation will be based on course objectives and will be carried out in accordance with Douglas College policy.
The instructor will provide a written course outline with specific criteria during the first week of classes.
Any possible combination of the following which equals 100%:
(No one evaluation component within each category may exceed 40%)
|Tests, quizzes, short written assignments||20% - 50%||Three 10% tests 30%|
|Written class presentations, essays, essay exams||30% - 60%||Two 30% essays 60%|
