GANNON UNIVERSITY Course Syllabus – GCIS 601 Prof. Quality Module: Communication, Spring 2010 1 2 3 4 Examinations / Quizzes x x x Mini-Projects, Assignments x x x x Final Project Work and Report x x In-Class Activities x x x x Course Administration and Grading: Preparation - Material should be read prior to class in order to facilitate learning. You are responsible for the contents of the textbook and any supplemental materials unless I waive the material. Do not procrastinate on doing the assignments. Mishaps, problems, and unavailability of the equipment do happen. Ask questions when things are not understood in the class or from the reading. Attendance, Class Courtesy - I expect students to attend and actively participate. Attendance is part of your participation grade. Attendance implies attention. If you choose to instant message, use a PDA, or other electronic device or software because it is available to you rather than be involved with the material of the class, then you have elected to be responsible for the material of the class without the support of instruction and are willing to bear the consequences to your grade. You are not to be using the computers unless indicated by me.
