Course Introduction 01.01.02: Successive Course Summary


This goal of this infor­ma­tion is to define the para­me­ters of course assess­ment unique to a suc­ces­sive an/or remote course environment.

Successive Course Policies

  • This course requires sig­nif­i­cant self-moti­va­tion by stu­dent to com­plete the course assign­ments. It is the stu­den­t’s respon­si­bil­ity to ensure that any and all work is com­pleted on time, that any dis­crep­an­cies in the instruc­tions are ques­tioned, and that assign­ments are clearly iden­ti­fied for assessment.
  • All dead­lines for sub­mis­sions is 11:59 pm (mid­night) Cen­tral (Okla­homa, Dal­las and Chicago loca­tions) of the date ref­er­enced in the assign­ment sheet or drop­box. Points are deducted or ommit­ted for late work.
  • It is likely that errors in com­mu­ni­ca­tion will occur. All cor­re­spon­dence will take the form of writ­ten com­mu­ni­ca­tion and or sum­maries. Errors on behalf of the course instruc­tor will always ben­e­fit the stu­dent and will be documented.
  • The instruc­tor will reply to any com­mu­ni­ca­tion within 24 hours, with a goal of an acknowl­edg­ment reply within six hours.
  • Atten­dance is mea­sured by weekly indi­vid­ual meet­ings and dis­cus­sion top­ics. Par­tic­i­pa­tion in both is is required.
  • Sched­uled meet­ing times are used to track stu­dent progress. Each meet­ing should ver­ify pos­i­tive move­ment toward com­ple­tion of each par­tic­u­lar assign­ment. Please inform the course instruc­tor if a weekly meet­ing is to be missed, so a makeup can be scheduled.
  • Meet­ings can take place via D2L Dis­cus­sions, email, text, phone and/or elec­tronic video on a mobile or desk­top device. All notes and/or sum­maries will also be posted in the D2L Dis­cus­sion sec­tion. The intent of this process is to repli­cate the cri­tique, with the addi­tion of pre­serv­ing the notes for later ref­er­ence by all students.
  • The use of com­puter con­trolled tech­nolo­gies may be used with the express con­sent of the stu­dent, and will be lim­ited to the use of spe­cific files, direc­to­ries and appli­ca­tions needed to com­plete the course require­ments. Pro­grams used include Face­Time as part of Design Tech­nol­ogy require­ment, Zoom and/or TeamViewer, which may require an addi­tional account, doc­u­mented and ref­er­enced in a course exercise.
  • The use of com­puter con­trolled tech­nolo­gies will allow the course instruc­tor to inves­ti­gate files in an attempt to dis­cover and cor­rect issues pre­vent­ing instruc­tional progress, should the need arise.
  • While instruc­tional devel­op­ment is the ideal, unin­tended or acci­den­tal expo­sure to pri­vate infor­ma­tion may occur. Any appar­ent or unin­ten­tional dis­cov­ery or mis­use of this process should be doc­u­mented via writ­ten com­mu­ni­ca­tion, and in full trans­parency between the stu­dent, instruc­tor and admin­is­tra­tion, will be thor­oughly inves­ti­gated and rectified.
  • Given the nature of con­tem­po­rary soci­ety and con­ve­nience, the use of a mobile device is likely. It is the stu­den­t’s respon­si­bil­ity to main­tain and fund such device, but the use of one is not required.
  • The doc­u­men­ta­tion of notes, sketches and printed mate­ri­als may be nec­es­sary to ful­fill course require­ments. The abil­ity to scan or pho­to­graph the mate­ri­als for sub­mis­sion is required. Mobile phone images are accept­able, given appro­pri­ate light­ing and clarity.
