Course Session Format Class sessions will feature discussions, lectures, outside guest speakers, video presentations, written and oral case analyses, in-class group/individual communications exercises and presentations. Some of the materials presented in class will supplement assigned text readings. With all of the activities and supplemental material planned for class time, it will not be possible for lectures to give comprehensive coverage of material from the text. Consequently, it is important that class members carefully read the assigned chapters before class in order to be prepared for discussion, in-class exercises and occasional unannounced quizzes. There will be 3 exams during the semester. Each exam will have multiple choice and/or true or false questions, and short answer questions. Exams will cover material from class lectures, discussions, guest speakers, in-class assignments, as well as assigned readings. The exams will be constructed to reward students who consistently attend class, complete the assignments, and take full responsibility for their learning of the material. Exams are non-cumulative. Each exam will cover the chapters or readings noted in the syllabus. Students with a valid absence excuse prior to the exam may request a make-up exam that must be scheduled and completed within one week (7 calendar days) of the closing date of the exam.
