Consent for Group Work No group work may be posted online or used in any manner other than submission to the course instructor without the full consent of all group members. VCU policies and regulations regarding the network and resources are also applicable and can be found at VCU Computer and Network Resources Use Statement . Academic Integrity Much academic work involves seeking out information and ideas from other sources and incorporating what you find into your own work. Be sure to provide credit whenever material is quoted directly, summarized, or paraphrased. In other words, provide credit not only for others’ language, but their ideas as well. This class will include instruction on how to maintain academic integrity and avoid plagiarism. Handing in the same work for credit in multiple classes is an honor offense. Consult with your instructor if you have questions. Respect the work of others and in no way present it as your own. Read VCU’s honor system policy here .

Learning happens as a result of being exposed to different ideas and different experiences, both in the classroom and beyond, in the larger University community. It often takes other peoples’ perspectives and opinions to spark in us new and deeper ways of seeing something. Think, for example, when you listen to other people in class or in general conversation, how many times you have said to yourself, “Gee. I never thought of it that way before.” Thus, we learn and think through social exchange. Be a social learner while you are here. There are a number of social learning communities that should be of particular interest to you as a first-year student.
