Policies deal with everything from company benefits to parking permits, but more importantly they govern the flow of work within and between departments. Policies —whether written, spoken, or simply assumed— are what create a corporate “culture.” Likewise, to ensure that all students are working according to the same standards, this course has policies for class attendance and participation, assignments, and grades and grading (see below for exhaustive detail). 1

Class Attendance and Participation Since a lot of our work is in-class and on-line activity, your attendance and participation will be factors in your final grade—just as they are factors in your success in industry. Please observe the following policies for this class: Attend all classes and participate in class discussion and group work, both face-to-face and online. If you cannot attend a class, notify the instructor as far in advance as possible - preferably 24 hours before the class - to discuss your reason. (See note below.) Arrive to class on time!! Two or three minutes early is best. I start class ON THE HOUR, you are responsible for anything you miss if you wander in 5 minutes late, and assignments turned in after the hour will be considered late. Be prepared to answer questions and discuss the reading assignments.
