Required Texts/Readings The course material will be available on Cisco Networking Academy web site (http://cisco.netacad.net ). Additional lecture notes will be posted on WebCT. The following textbooks are available from the university bookstore or from ciscopress.com: Network Fundamentals, CCNA Exploration Companion Guide Network Fundamentals, CCNA Exploration Labs and Study Guide Routing Protocols and Concepts, CCNA Exploration Companion Guide Routing Protocols and Concepts, CCNA Exploration Labs and Study Guide The online course material is covered in the companion guides. The books are not mandatory, but strongly recommended, in particular if you want to keep them for future reference. Also, the study guides may not be available online. * Additional readings may be assigned or recommended during the course. 8. Evaluation Method Lab reports and Handson exam 30% Inclass quizzes and participation 10% Chapter assessments* 10% Final online exams (CCNA 1&2)** 20% Final written exam*** 30% * The 10% mark for chapter assessments is calculated in the following way: For each chapter assessment you will be given a mark of 1 (if you score > 50%), 0.5 (if your score is below 50%), or 0 (if you don't submit the assessment) The 10% portion will be equal to the sum of your top 10 assignment marks, multiplied by the percentage of the chapter assessments that you have submitted. For instance, if you submit 16 assessments out of a total of 20, and you have at least ten assessment scores higher than 50%, you will get (10*1)*(16/20) = 8% mark for the assessments. ** The 20% mark for CCNA 1&2 final exams are calculated as following: 0.15*max(CCNA1,CCNA2)+0.05*min(CCNA1, CCNA2). 4 *** Final written exam is closed book. * Final course grades may be adjusted to conform to program or Faculty grade distribution profiles. Further information on grading can be found in Section 5 of the UOIT Academic Calendar. 9. Assignments and Tests Online exams and assessments are provided through Networking Academy site: http://cisco.netacad.net. Each week, students must review the material for the next week and complete the respective online assessments. Students will be notified through webCT course announcements section about the chapters that must be completed for the next week. Chapter assessments can be taken at home and are open book. Each assessment can be taken only once. Students must complete the CCNA Exploration1 and 2 final online exams in order to have access to online materials for future courses. The online exams will be closed book and proctored. The online exams will be conducted during lecture hours. 10. Accessibility To ensure that disabilityrelated concerns are properly addressed during this course, students with documented disabilities and who may require assistance to participate in this class are encouraged to speak with their instructor as soon as possible. Students who require alternative testing and examination arrangements or other academic accommodations must contact the Centre for Students with Disabilities (B297) as early as possible to ensure that your needs can be met. 11. Professional Conduct (if applicable) 12. Academic Integrity UOIT is committed to the fundamental values of preserving academic integrity as defined in UOIT policies and contained in the UOIT Calendar. Students and faculty at UOIT share an important responsibility to maintain the integrity of the teaching and learning relationship. This relationship is characterized by honesty, fairness and mutual respect for the aim and principles of the pursuit of education. Academic misconduct impedes the activities of the university community and is punishable by appropriate disciplinary action. Students are expected to be familiar with UOIT's regulations on Academic Conduct (Section 5.15 of the Academic Calendar) which sets out the kinds of actions that constitute academic misconduct, including plagiarism, copying or allowing one's own work to copied, use of unauthorized aids in examinations and tests, submitting work prepared in collaboration with another student when such collaboration has not been authorized, and other academic offences. The regulations also describe the procedures for dealing with allegations, and the sanctions for any finding of academic misconduct, which can range from a written reprimand to permanent expulsion from the university. A lack of familiarity with UOIT's regulations on academic conduct does not constitute a defense against its application. Further information on academic integrity is available at: www.uoit.ca/EN/academicintegritystudent. Academic Misconduct will not be tolerated in this class. Any student found to be involved in plagiarism or cheating will be penalized in accordance to the UOIT Calendar Section 5.15. The standard penalty for a first offence will be a grade of 0 on the exam or assignment. Permanent expulsion from the university may be implemented as penalty if a student is found to be guilty of successive acts of academic misconduct. UOIT and faculty members reserve the right to use electronic means to detect and help prevent plagiarism. Students agree that by taking this course all assignments are subject to submission for textual similarity review to Turnitin.com. Assignments submitted to Turnitin.com will be included as source documents in Turnitin.com's restricted access database solely for the purpose of detecting plagiarism in such documents for five academic years. The faculty member may require students to submit their assignments electronically to Turnitin.com or the faculty member may submit questionable text on behalf of a student. The terms that apply to UOIT's use of the Turnitin.com service are described on the Turnitin.com website. If a student does 5 object to the use of Turnitin.com, that student must sign and submit the Assignment Cover Sheet attached with each assignment submitted for assessment. Further information about Turnitin can be found in Resources on the Academic Integrity link on your laptop. 13. Final Examinations Final examinations are held during the final examination period at the end of the semester and may take place in a different room and on a different day from the regularly scheduled class. Check the published Examination Schedule for a complete list of days and times. Students are advised to obtain their UOIT Student ID Card well in advance of the examination period as they will not be able to write their examinations without it. A UOIT Student ID card can be obtained at the Campus ID Services, in G1004 in the Campus Recreation and Wellness Centre. Students, who through religious obligations are unable to write a final examination when scheduled, will be permitted to write a deferred examination. These students are required to give three week's notice to the faculty concerned and to document the religious obligations involved. An Application for Deferred Examination for Religious Observances form is available through the Registrar's Office. Students who miss an exam for medical or compassionate grounds may submit a request for deferral, along with supporting documentation, to the Faculty Advising offices within five (5) working days. Medical deferrals will be comprised of a completed UOIT Medical Statement form completed by the student and physician within 24 hours following the missed examination, and a UOIT Application for Deferred Examination form. These forms can be found on the UOIT website, or the Web CT FBIT Announcement Board. Further information on final examinations is available at: www.uoit.ca/EN/main2/about/14057/14152/Academic_Policies_and_Procedures/Finalexam.html 14. Course Evaluations Student evaluation of teaching is a highly valued and helpful mechanism for monitoring the quality of UOIT's programs and instructional effectiveness. To that end, course evaluations are administered by an external company in an online, anonymous process during the last few weeks of classes. Students are encouraged to participate actively in this process and will be notified of the dates via MyCampus. 6 Appendix: Other Policies and Expectations for the Learning Environment 1. Effective Learning in the Classroom The following are suggestions on how to carry out effective learning in your daily studying: PreClass Preparation: Before you go to your classroom, you should allow enough time for commuting, and eat a healthy meal or snack. Also, you should ask yourself the following questions: Have you previewed the reading assignments? Have you noted down key insights and questions from your reading? * Rule of thumb: for every hour lecture, you need approximately three hours of outside class studying to reinforce the material learnt in class. InClass Attitude: In order to get the most out of your lectures, you need to: Arrive to class On Time Concentrate (be curious and be motivated) Be Active: o in class discussion o in group activities o in creative and critical thinking And you should also AVOID the following: Eating 'strong smelling' or 'noisy' food Getting involved in side conversions Sending signs that scheduled class time is up, i.e. closing up your laptop or standing Answering cellular phones in class After class Review lecture notes; highlight key points Consult instructors or TA for unresolved questions Seek help when necessary Finish assignments on time 2. The use of your laptop in the classroom The use of laptops often enhances the learning experience. However, there are circumstances when it can be obstructive. Instructors have the right and the responsibility to determine appropriate classroom protocols for student use of laptops. Students refusing to comply with such requests may be requested to remove themselves from the classroom. Students refusing to comply may also be considered to be in violation of our University code of conduct and disciplinary action may result. Section 5:15 of the undergraduate calendar provide additional information on these matters. Examples of appropriate use of laptops: Taking lecture notes Course related computing Limited messaging for learning purposes Download course material from WebCT Watching movies Playing computer games Social messaging Examples of Inappropriate Use of Laptop 7 3. Effective team management The following are suggestions on how to effectively manage your teamwork: Setting clear objectives Signing the team contract Meeting regularly Conducting effective meetings Assigning roles to members Staying in touch: meeting; emails; phones Managing conflicts effectively 4. Managing Conflict The following are suggestions on how to resolve conflict that could possibly happen during your studying: Have a team contract to guide conflict resolution. The team "leader" might send an email to the absent member, and copy all members, asking why he or she missed the meeting. Keep an attendance log and use this as part of your peer review process. Try to avoid making any decisions that are known to be an issue for an absent member until that person can be reached. 5. In the event of the illness In the event of illness, you are suggested to: Please stay home so as not to spread it to others Contact your Academic Advisor by email or phone right away not your instructor. The Academic Advisors will organize any assignment, test or lab adjustments if needed.
