Students are encouraged to supplement assignments with web searches and readings in current periodicals relevant to Leadership (including publications such as The Leadership Quarterly, Leadership and Organization Development Journal, WallStreet Journal, BusinessWeek). Such readings will be very helpful for participation in class discussions in order to earn maximum points. Be sure to use your own words to summarize information and reference and cite any external material consulted. Material posted in Blackboard after given deadlines will not be graded. 2

ASSIGNMENTS Assignment Instructions are provided in a separate area. All Exams, Quizzes, Discussions and Individual Reports must be completed on an individual basis. I do not accept emailed assignments. All reports are due via SafeAssign (this program checks your work for originality). There will also be one course project including a team presentation on an organization’s top leader or management team. All assignments are listed/available in the “Assignments” area in Blackboard. You are expected to complete assigned readings and complete all assignments on time. The following is a brief overview: (1) DISCUSSION FORUMS Students are expected to read all 4 assigned discussion forums in order to be aware of material discussed. There are 4 assigned discussions and students must participate in all (4) forums. Appropriate online etiquette should be practiced. Include websites/articles, examples, and apply course content. (2) QUIZZES, EXAMINATIONS and PARTICIPATION Please note that (a) Quizzes are based on the vLeader simulation and integrates course concepts related to each vLeader scenario. (b) Exams cover course material that augments your assigned readings (some portions of the examinations cover material not in your textbook (this material will appear in your lecture notes – indicated by “NIT” on each powerpoint slide). All quizzes and exams in this course require the Respondus lockdown browser. Download and use the instructions attached in "course information" in Blackboard then go straight to the link that appears below to download the lockdown browser. http://www.respondus.com/lockdown/information.pl?ID=721312624 . (c) Team development is facilitated by regular communication and will be reflected in the peer evaluations that team members turn in on completion of each portion of the team project. Active, constructive participation is encouraged and counts toward your grade. Attendance will be recorded and points awarded. Participation in a class such as this is very important! Participation is not just showing up to class it’s getting involved, offering opinions, asking questions, getting into the class and group discussions. Participation will be graded as follows: 0-1 UNEXCUSED (no supporting documentation) absences by end of semester earns you: - 40 pts For each UNEXCUSED absence beyond 2 you will lose: - 2 pts Extent to which I believe you participated earns you : - 10 pts (3) VLEADER SIMULATION ( www.simulearn.net/LeadershipSupport/FAU.html )

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
