Please note that your individual grade in this project will be determined from your group's recommendation of the portion of the grade you should receive on the project. This is a team project, and students will be evaluated on their performance within the team. Be advised, however, that if any student intends to assign a mark of less than 80 percent (of the grade your team receives on the project) to a member of his/her team, the student must notify the instructor and the team member by the deadline on the syllabus so that the team member has an opportunity to improve behaviour. It is very important that you understand this process clearly!

David Crawford_C292_TTH_S109 (2:00-3:30pm)_S110 (3:30-5:00pm)_HA291 4 4) Active Learning (10 percent of course mark) Because this course relies heavily on applications and discussions of materials, 10 percent of your grade will be determined from active learning activities. Active learning means that you take responsibility both for your learning, and helping others to learn more about the material. This course is about building skills to enable you to be a better employee, team member, manager and leader. Active learning in the course is your way to demonstrate the attitudes and behaviours that are required of these roles. Active learning can be demonstrated in a variety of ways. These may include: Attendance and involvement – attending every class (with exceptions for serious emergencies), arriving on time and remaining fully engaged throughout the class. Preparation – using the course outline to plan and prepare for each class, completing readings prior to class, developing informed individual responses to the materials, bringing any additional materials distributed by your instructor and submitting assignments on time following the instructions. Participation in full-class discussions – offering informed, constructive, original contributions that build on what classmates have already said to move the discussion forward, integrating the lessons from the theoretical readings into the discussion, and being prepared if you are called on without raising your hand. Please note that participation that does not add any value is treated the same as not participating. Frequent non-quality contributions may be penalized. Quality of contribution is rewarded – not quantity. Participation in small-group activities – taking an active role in the discussion without dominating it, keeping the group on-task, encouraging the whole group to participate, and facilitating discussion. In the past students who have prepared the theoretical readings in a study group before class have benefited greatly from the advance preparation. Since this is an active learning focused course, we consider attendance in every class to be very important.
