The following is a list of values that I expect in and out of the classroom.
meant as guidelines, not as an exhaustive list of suggested behavior:
– I absolutely will not tolerate cheating.
I demand myself to be as fair
Part of that fairness is creating a level playing field.
If somebody cheats,
they gain an unfair edge relative to other students in this course, and that simply will not
In the past, I have dealt specifically with students cheating on tests, and if
forced to do so, will deal with it again. You may find the official UNT Academic
Integrity Policy at the following URL:
– I will treat each student with respect, and expect all students to treat myself,
and their peers with respect.
This is not meant to stifle disagreement.
We will promote
discussion in the classroom, and alternative points of view are allowable for discussion,
keep disagreement to the issues – do not get personal
– This is a requirement of the course. Your participation makes all the
difference between a dry, lecture-focused course, and an active and fun-learning
environment. Your education will be so much richer if you and your classmates actively
participate in the course. I have learned in my academic and professional career that you
really do learn more when you contribute. Much of this course centers on active learning,
and your contributions directly increase the value of this course.
