For courses with 8 or more weeks o Any student counted as “absent” for more than three weeks (or the equivalent of three weeks) in any one course will not receive credit for the course and will receive a grade of “F”. This is an institutional policy and is not left to the discretion of the instructor. Students who stop participating without formally withdrawing from the course will receive a grade of “F” or “WF” and will incur a financial obligation to pay for the course. If a student is not participating in class, financial aid funds will be returned to the lender. Version 1 07/14
CRJ387: Criminal Law 24 Standard policies with regard to absences will be discussed in class. The participation grade is derived from attendance, virtual team evaluations, and a subjective assessment of the quality of participation. NETIQUETTE Please apply basic principles of courtesy, tolerance, and professionalism . In particular, note the following in online discussions and course-related emails: 1. Respect the confidentiality of what is shared in the course in order to facilitate communication and learning in this environment, as well as to respect privacy. DO NOT reveal or discuss any personally identifiable information from or about others (such as work site, comments about organization or persons, views of policies). 2. Keep in mind that confidentiality in the course cannot be guaranteed. Do not write anything that would be embarrassing if it were made public and never disclose trade secrets or company-confidential information. 3. Give citations for quoted materials or others' ideas, as in all writing for class. 4. Be cautious about expressing emotion, whether intentional or unintentional, e.g., when using BOLD typeface; when using words or phrases that can stereotype people; or when responding to ideas about which one feels strongly. 5. Be sure to reread messages before sending , think about their potential impact, and edit as necessary. HINTS FOR SUCCESS IN YOUR ONLINE COURSE Be sure you have access to proper computer equipment, internet service and software as listed below. Designate certain times each week to work on your course. Plan ahead; avoid procrastination; even out your workload; absorb material before moving on. Have a specific achievement goal for each log-on session to help you accomplish what you need to get done and avoid distractions. Actively participate in discussions. Meaningful interchange will lead to better understanding of various aspects of the course and also contribute to the personality and warmth of the online class community. If assigned to an online team or study group, work with your team members actively from the start. Thus, team members will benefit from each others' ideas and experiences and can depend on one another to complete assigned tasks. Practice an informal but organized, concise, and clear writing style that aids online communication.
