|Facilitator Information |
| |
| |
|Dr. Raphael A. Mizzell |
|Mizzela@email.phoenix.edu (University of Phoenix) |
|Mizzela@ocps.net (Personal) |
|321 276-1020 (EST) |
| |
|Facilitator Availability |
|I am available from 9 a.m.-9 p.m. Eastern Time on most days, but I attempt to reserve Sunday for my family. On Saturdays, I am frequently online – |
|if this is a Monday class you will have my cell phone for emergencies. |
|Please email, leave a VM or place a message in the Main forum under Question subject thread. I am at different learning centers during the week. |
|If I am in a meeting I will return your call when finished. I prefer that if you post a note in your individual forum or Main forum you can also |
|call me so I will know to check the message. I do check the question thread in the Main forum in the morning. |
| |
|I want you to know that, should you need to contact me outside these time frames, you should not hesitate to do so. |
|Where to Go to Class: Your Course Forums |
|Main: This is the main forum for the class and is where you may ask questions between class meetings. It has read-and-write access for everyone. If|
|you have any questions about the class forums, please let me know during our on-campus class time or by posting your question(s) in the Main forum |
|Question Thread. |
|Chat-Room: This is a read-and-write access forum. It is designed as a place to discuss issues not related to the course content. |
|Course-Materials: This is a read-only forum, which means you can read messages here but cannot send any. This is where I will post the course |
|syllabus and materials. |
|Learning-Team-A, B, C, D and E: These five Learning Team forums may be used as workrooms for the learning teams. You will be assigned to one of |
|these learning teams. |
|Individual Forum: You will see one forum with your name on it. This is a private forum, shared only by you and me, the facilitator. Your classmates|
|will not have access to this forum. This is where you will post your individual assignments, and where I will post your feedback. You can also ask |
|questions here. However, if you have general questions about instructions of assignments, please post those in the Main forum, since other students|
|may benefit by that exchange as well. |
|Classroom Management Policies |
|For class policies please see the “Policies” link on the left side of the classroom. Faculty and student/learners will be held responsible for |
|understanding and adhering to all policies contained within that link. University policies are subject to change so please be sure to read them at |
|the beginning of each class as it may have changed since your last class. Policies may be slightly different depending on the modality in which you|
|attend class. If you have recently changed modalities it is important you read the policies governing your current class modality. |
| |
|Classroom Etiquette - There are a few courtesies that are expected in the classroom. As professionals and scholars, please be mindful of the |
|following: |
|No cell phones, pagers, or other communication devices that ring or otherwise interrupt class. |
|Computers and other devices are permissible, but only if they are used for note taking. No emails, games or writing assignments is permitted. |
|Sidebar conversations should not occur. If there is something to share, be certain to include the entire group; otherwise, save it until break |
|time. |
|Promptly arrive to class and return within the designated timeframe from break. |
|Healthy debate is encouraged, but students must be mindful that remarks that demean others and/or their opinion are not tolerated. |
|Please adhere to the Student’s Code of Conduct Policy found in the Student Handbook. |
| |
|Learning Teams - Learning Teams are an integral part of the University of Phoenix learning environment. You will become part of a Learning Team |
|(3-5 members) during the first workshop. I highly recommend that you meet fact to face with your team if it is a newly formed team or if you have |
|added a new member. Meeting settings should include email, teleconferencing, instant messaging, and/or electronic newsgroups. |
|Learning Team Participation is crucial. Teammates are counting on your timely delivery of contracted contributions, so be sure and let them know |
|if you have to miss any days of participation. If a problem arises that will impact your participation, let your team members and instructor know |
|as soon as possible. |
| |
|If a team presentation is due in the 5th week and a team member cannot make the presentation, and they have contributed to the project, they will |
|potentially receive 50% of the points. For example, if the project has a 20-point grade value and the team members agree that the student |
|participated, then the team member that will be absent during the formal presentation will receive only 10 points for the project. If a team |
|member knows they will not be in class when the presentation is due, the team can request to do their presentation in the 4th week so everyone can |
|participate. |
| |
|Communication with the instructor is the key. |
| |
|Although most members on the team will earn the same grade, your instructor reserves the right to deduct points or give a zero for students who do |
|not participate substantively on team assignments. Students must be held accountable for lack of contributions to a team effort, just as employees|
|are in the work place. The instructor utilizes the weekly Learning Team Log (if requested by faculty) and the Peer Evaluation to make this |
|decision. |
| |
|Team assignments require equal efforts of all team members. Each team member will have an opportunity to evaluate other team members at the class |
|end or each team project. If a student receives below 1-2-3 (out of a possible 4) points in one or more category from every member of his/her |
|team, the instructor has the latitude to drop his/her overall class grade one-letter grade. If team members rate a team member a zero for the team|
|assignment, that student will receive a grade of zero. |
| |
|Team Charter - A Learning Team Charter, utilizing the Learning Team Charter provided in course materials forum will need to be submitted at |
|Workshop 2. Please make sure your Team Charter addresses the following: |
|Leaderless Team |
|Identify Skills and Resources |
|Plan for Conflict |
|Level of Commitment: Example - A team member did not participate in the practice presentation. Will they be allowed or not allowed to participate |
|in the formal presentation. If a team member walks into class with a separate power point, does the team allow them to present with the team? |
|Quantity of Work |
|Define Timeliness of work: Example - Monday class, first draft is due by Wednesday evening at 6:00pm. The Editor will have the draft back to the |
|team by Friday evening at 6:00pm. All team members will review the assignment and return it (with comments) to the Editor by Saturday at 12:00 |
|noon. The final paper will be ready by Saturday evening at 10:00pm. Sunday is free for team members to share with family. If a team member |
|misses the deadline without communicating with the team or a team member does not participate should also be addressed. |
| |
|Define being prepared for meeting (i.e. clear and concise expectations) |
|Identify line of communication to faculty |
|PowerPoint: Is each member responsible for creating their own PowerPoint and sending it to a designated person to create a template for all slides?|
|Does the team need to sign off on the PowerPoint? Will the PowerPoint be emailed to each team member, and if so, by what date? |
| |
|All group papers are required to be submitted to the Plagiarism Check in the CWE. A copy of this returned paper must be submitted with the original|
|paper. |
|All members of team must submit individually: 1. A Certificate of Originality for every Individual and team project. 2. The team assignment - paper|
|/PowerPoint. 3. The team must identify to the faculty what student is the leader of project so that the faculty can view and grade 1 paper / team |
|assignment. 4. Posting the team assignment in every team members individual assignment folder acknowledges to the faculty that the student has |
|reviewed and accepted the assignment in the form as it is submitted for grading. |
| |
| |
|One of the highlights of our last couple workshops will be your Learning Team or Individual presentations. Mastering effective public speaking |
|skills and demonstrating content competency is critical. The final grade of the presentation will come from both you and the team. Half of the |
|score will be based on how the team, as a whole, performed, while the other half of the grade will come from your personal presentation skills. The|
|Learning Team Evaluations that you turn in during class will also be used to determine individual grades based on the level of contribution |
|indicated on the Evaluation forms. |
| |
| |
|Note: It is expected that you will actively participate with your learning team and contribute to the team discussions by a) contributing original |
|work that is accepted and used by the team with proof of originality b) participating in the project from assignment organizing through meaningful |
|final review of the team project for submission, and c) ensuring to your team that your contributions are your original work and properly quoted, |
|cited, and referenced. |
| |
| |
|Learning Team Logs |
|** Faculty will assign logs as needed. Learning Team Logs shall be submitted electronically to the LT Forum 24 hours before class at workshop 2 |
|and for each subsequent workshop. The Learning Team Log is submitted via OLS3 Learning Team Forum A, B, or C. including documenting the team’s |
|goals and objectives, resources, and outcomes. |
|Where to Submit Your Assignments |
|Assignment Section: This is where you will submit all formal assignments. Navigate to the Assignments link on eCampus. Locate the link to submit |
|your assignment as an attachment. |
|Please be timely in submitting your assignments. Assignments are due by the beginning of class (6:00 p.m. Eastern Time) on the date indicated or |
|when directed by the instructor. All assignments are required to be submitted to your grade book / assignment in Microsoft Word® format and a |
|printed copy to the Instructor on the date and time due. A copy of the Plagiarism Checker shall be attached to the printed copy provided to the |
|instructor. Failure to attach these documents will result in an additional 10% point reduction for the assignment. |
| |
| |
|Late Assignments - Deadlines will be defined as after 6 pm EST. Late assignments will be penalized with a 10% grade deduction per day. Each day the|
|assignment is late 1 point will be deducted from the final grade for a total of 3 points deduction. No late assignments will be accepted after 72 |
|hours from due date. |
|It is your responsibility to make certain that assignments are submitted on or before the due date. Assignments are considered late if they are |
|submitted after 6:00 p.m. (Eastern Time) on the due date. |
|Computer problems, missing textbooks, and busy schedules are NOT valid reasons for trying to submit a late assignment. |
|If you know you are going to be away on a day an assignment is due, your instructor will ALWAYS accept work early, so post it a day or two ahead of|
|time. Your instructor does not accept any assignment after 6:00 p.m. on the due date unless prior arrangements have been made. Communication with |
|the instructor is the key. |
| |
| |
|Quizzes, exams, oral presentations, and in-class activities that have point value may not be submitted at a different time, nor may they earn |
|partial credit unless arrangements have been made with the faculty. That is, if a student is late coming to class, and the quiz has already been |
|collected, the student will not be allowed to take a make-up quiz. However, if the test is still being taken by the class, the arriving student may|
|participate until time is called; no extensions will be granted. If someone is absent on the evening of an oral presentation, prior arrangements |
|must be discussed with the facilitator. |
| |
|Assignments submitted after the last day of class will not be accepted under any circumstances according to University policy. Grade changes are |
|not permitted for work submitted after the end of a class. |
| |
|The instructor reserves the right to reduce the student’s grade for the course by one full letter grade if the student has more than 4 hours of |
|cumulative absence from class that the student has signed roster. Students are responsible for all missed work. |
| |
| |
|Grade Disputes |
|No one other than the faculty member teaching a course may determine course assignment grades and record a course grade for a student. Students |
|should raise concerns or questions about perceived assignment grade errors directly with faculty promptly after receiving feedback and grades for |
|assignments, but in no event later than 6 weeks of the date of the original grade report communication. |
| |
|Incomplete Grade |
|Unless an Incomplete Grade has been granted and contracted, assignments submitted after the last day of class will not be accepted under any |
|circumstances according to University policy. Grade changes are not permitted for work submitted after the end of a class, unless an Incomplete |
|Grade has been requested by the student prior to the course end date, the student meets the requirements for an Incomplete, and the faculty has |
|granted an Incomplete. |
|Technical Support |
|Technical Support is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Call 1-877-832-4867, or use the e-mail support form. |
|Answers to the most common issues are found in the Knowledge Base by clicking Help, found at the top of every student Web site. |
|Feedback |
|Each week, I will provide grades or scores and comments on assignments within 7 days of when they were submitted. After I send feedback each week, |
|I will post a notification in the Main forum. |
| |
|Approved Writing Style |
|The University of Phoenix-approved writing guide is The Gregg Reference Manual (UPX custom edition). The required writing style is APA. Students |
|unfamiliar with APA requirements should attend an onsite lab, refer to the APA Manual (6th ed.) or use many of the APA resources at the Center for |
|Writing Excellence. The Central Florida Campus also provides an APA Toolkit that can be found in the Course Materials forum. All written work must |
|be submitted in APA format and perfectly edited. Please check your work with the Center for Writing Excellence for grammar, sentence structure and |
|APA format, and for plagiarism before you submit the work to faculty. |
| |
| |
|Papers that require you to self-reflect may be written using “I”; however, avoid the personal pronouns of “you, we, our.” Papers need to have |
|correct grammar, punctuation, and spelling. If there are any references to copyright materials, such as a personality, learning style, or ethics |
|inventories, there should be in-text citations and a reference page. |
| |
| |
|Student Code of Academic Integrity |
|The Student Code of Academic Integrity is an important part of the Student Code of Conduct. The full text of this code appears on the home page of |
|the University’s Center for Writing Excellence, on eCampus. The Student Code of Academic Integrity is also referenced in the Policies link in |
|eCampus. |
| |
|Working with Sources |
|“Research writing is much more than finding sources and reporting their contents. The challenge and interest come from interacting with sources, |
|reading them critically to discover their meanings, judge their quality, and create relationships among them” (Aaron, 2001, p. 320). “In this way, |
|your paper will synthesize others’ work into something wholly your own” (325). |
| |
| |
|Integrating Sources |
|“The evidence of others’ information and opinions should back up, not dominate, your own ideas. To synthesize evidence, you need to smooth the |
|transitions between your ideas and words and those of your sources, and you need to give the reader a context for interpreting the borrowed |
|material” (Aaron, 2001, p. 335). |
| |
| |
|Oral Presentations |
|Students are often asked to share oral presentations with the class. When required, students should demonstrate appropriate public speaking |
|skills, be mindful of time constraints, and keep the matter at hand. Students are evaluated both as a group and on individual merit for the |
|Learning Team presentation. Team evaluations will occur after every team presentation. Student dress is business attire. |
| |
|If the student arrives late for class and a presentation is in progress, the student shall wait outside the classroom until the presentation is |
|completed. |
| |
|Bring a hard copy of the presentation slides with speaker notes for the instructor the night of class. |
| |
| |
|Attendance |
|Students may not miss more than one class session according to University policy. A student that misses 2 classes is considered automatically |
|withdrawn “W” and must contact their Academic Advisor immediately. |
| |
| |
|Classroom Assessment |
|Usually 10 percent of the final grade is directly related to class contribution, punctuality and participation in all class hours. These points are|
|awarded solely at the instructor’s discretion. These points are based on promptness to class, staying for the duration of the workshops, and making|
|a substantial contribution to the class discussions. Students missing > 4 hours cumulative is subject to a reduction in grade. |
| |
|Students are expected to make positive contributions, which foster a professional, analytical atmosphere. Healthy debate is encouraged, but |
|students must be mindful that remarks that demean others and/or their opinions are not tolerated. |

Communication with faculty is essential. Please do not hesitate to contact instructor.

Internal Control

...controls are processes established by a business or organizations board of directors, management and other personnel to provide reasonable assurance for that businesses objectives in effectiveness and efficiency, reliability of financial reports and compliance with laws and regulations. Internal controls are used to safeguard businesses assets. They help a to establish guidelines within a business and makes sure that everyone within that business follows those guidelines and procedures. Internal controls are important because without them a business would be more susceptible to fraud. Internal controls are used to prevent people from stealing from a business and to make sure all the rules are followed. Feedback: Internal control is a system of policies and procedures designed to help an organization run more efficiently and effectively. Without strong internal control, an organization is much more susceptible to various forms of risk which can compromise its operations and its financial reporting. What are the four basic purposes of internal control? Give an example of each one. The first purpose of internal controls is to safeguard assets. Internal controls should protect your assets such as cash. One internal control that helps with protection of assets is the segregation of duties, another is sequential numbering of checks or locking checks in a safe place. The second purpose is to ensure financial statement reliability. Internal controls should help ensure that a companys......

AGRICULTURE TAKES A BIG BITE: THE ECOLOGICAL FOOTPRINT OF THE GLOBAL FOOD SYSTEM After air and water, food is the most essential resource people require to sustain themselves. These resources are provided by the layer of interconnected life that covers our planet: the biosphere. Yet the way the food system provides food often severely damages the health of the biosphere through soil and aquifer depletion, deforestation, aggressive use of agrochemicals, fishery collapses, and the loss of biodiversity in crops, livestock, and wild species. The global food system has become such a dominant force shaping the surface of this planet and its ecosystems that we can no longer achieve sustainability without revamping the food system. At the same time sustainable food systems provide great hope for building a sustainable future—a future in which all can lead satisfying lives within the means of the biosphere. In this brief, we use Ecological Footprint analysis to document the current food system’s demand on the biosphere. Ecological Footprint accounts track the area of biologically productive land and water needed to produce the resources consumed by a given population and to absorb its waste. The Ecological......

Role of False Confessions

...difficult to understand why anyone would confess to a crime they didn’t commit. However, false confessions are one the leading causes of wrongful convictions.1 As the Supreme Court of Canada noted in R v. Oickle, innocent people are induced to make false confessions more frequently than those unacquainted with the phenomenon might expect.2 In North America, we can trace the existence of false confessions back to the Salem Witch Trials, where a number of women were persecuted for witchcraft on the basis of confessions that were obtained through torture and threats.3 More recent false confessions have been obtained under psychological duress and not with torture or threats of physical harm.4 Nevertheless, with the developments in law and policies in place to control interrogation methods, false confessions continue to persist.5 This begs the question, are interrogation methods solely responsible for false confessions, or does some of the responsibility fall on the confessor? Scholars and social scientists agree, that it is not solely harsh interrogation tactics that lead to false confessions but it is the combination of these tactics with psychological factors such as, intelligence and personality, which contribute to the likelihood of a suspect providing a false confession.6 While there are currently solutions for avoiding false confessions, they do not adequately address the needs of the most vulnerable individuals who are often induced into falsely confessing because of a......

...REGULATION FOR CONSERVATIVES: BEHAVIORAL ECONOMICS AND THE CASE FOR “ASYMMETRIC PATERNALISM” COLIN CAMERER, SAMUEL ISSACHAROFF, GEORGE LOEWENSTEIN, † TED O’DONOGHUE, AND MATTHEW RABIN INTRODUCTION Regulation by the state can take a variety of forms. Some regulations are aimed entirely at redistribution, such as when we tax the rich and give to the poor. Other regulations seek to counteract externalities by restricting behavior in a way that imposes harm on an individual basis but yields net societal benefits. A good example is taxation to fund public goods such as roads.
