The following grading scale is in use for this course: A = points B = points C = points D = points F = 0-59 points (Grades are not rounded up) EVALUATION AND GRADES Graded activities and percent of the overall course grade: DESCRIPTION FINAL GRADE % Discussion Board 15% Quizzes 15% Professional Role Assignments & Peer Review 20% Teaching Project: Paper, PowerPoint & Presentation 30% Final Exam 20% Total 100%
7 7 TEACHING STRATEGIES Students are expected to be active learners. It is a basic assumption of the instructor that students will be involved (beyond the materials and lectures presented in the course) discovering, processing, and applying the course information using peer-review journal articles, researching additional information and examples on the Internet, and discussing course material and clinical experiences with their peers. Strategies Used: Assigned Readings Internet Resources Discussion Forums PowerPoint Presentations Quizzes / Exam Written Assignments METHOD OF ASSESSING LEARNING OUTCOMES Online Discussion Professional Role Assignments Formal Teaching Project Teaching Project Presentation Quizzes and Exams ASSIGNMENT DESCRIPTIONS *Please note: Rubrics for all assessments are located at the end of this syllabus. Discussion Board Activities: Discussion Boards provide an avenue for synthesis of material / information. A Discussion Board is provided in this course as a way to help students process course materials, express thoughts, and engage others opinions and ideas in a healthy and productive learning environment. Students are expected to respond to all discussion board assessments using the Online Discussion Rubric to support individual answers to the assigned questions throughout this course. Professional Role Assignments (PowerPoint): During the semester, you will create PowerPoint presentations to demonstrate your knowledge on the materials covered. Through the completion of these assignments, the student will: Develop professional writing and presentational skills Improve technological skills Adopt a spirit of professional collaboration through peer review The assignments will be posted on the Discussion Board for peer analysis and submitted to the Assignment Folder for evaluation. Once you have received feedback from your peers, you may modify your presentation and submit to the appropriate Assignment Folder for grading
8 8 purposes. Students will be graded on their assignment submission as well as participation in the peer-review discussions. Teaching Project & Paper Students develop a presentation on a project they select to implement in their workplace. In addition, they write a paper on the process they select from the inception of the project, to the presentation for implementation of the project. The purpose of the project is to identify a health-related need and create a presentation that addresses the need, which will improve patient outcomes and/or improve the workplace environment. The student explores in depth health care issues that affect patient outcomes or impede healthcare workers from giving optimal care. The premise of the assignment is to help the student gain more knowledge of what they can do to improve patient outcomes and/or improve caregiver outcomes. Equipped with this knowledge, the student can develop strategies to improve patient outcomes and/or improve caregiving strategies in the workplace. The student explores their respective workplaces to identify improvements needed for better health care delivery. The topic selected must improve patient care in terms of delivery or outcomes and/or improve the workplace environment. EXAMS, QUIZZES, & PRESENTATIONS Outside of extenuating circumstances reviewed by and approved by the instructor, there are no makeup exams, discussion board assignments, assignments, or presentations. If the student misses an exam, a deadline for discussion, or project presentation, he/she will receive a zero for the missed item. The student is still responsible for reviewing the material covered during missed time for examination purposes. Testing via Respondus Monitor Access to quizzes will be through Respondus Lockdown Browser and will be video recorded via Respondus Monitor [See Other Required Materials for a list of needed equipment]. Use of another electronic device is prohibited. There are two practice quizzes: a) one is a Webcam test and b) a short 10-question practice quiz over ASU trivia that is not graded. These tools will be available to the student to assure accessibility. Students are required to go through these practice quizzes in advance of taking a graded quiz. This process will allow you to become familiar with the technology associated with testing and improve testing environment. The student must be connected directly to the internet. Not having a direct connection places the student at risk for being dropped from the exam. If the student is dropped from the exam due to not having a direct connection, the exam will not be reset.
9 9 GENERAL POLICIES RELATED TO THIS COURSE All students are required to follow the policies and procedures presented in the following documents: Angelo State Student Handbook located on the ASU website ASU Undergraduate Catalog located on the ASU website University Undergraduate Nursing Handbook, located on the Nursing website IMPORTANT UNIVERSITY & *CLASS DATES August 25 September 1 September 2 September 26 October 15 noon- October 16 noon *First Day of Class Labor Day (Holiday) First 8-week Session Census Date *Last day to drop a class from the 1 st 8-Weeks *Final Exam ATTENDANCE & SUDENT RESPONSIBILITY This class is asynchronous, meaning you do not have to be on-line at a certain time. There are readings which you will have to complete to be able to adequately participate in individual and group assessments. In order to complete this course successfully, you have to participate in all course activities i.e. discussion boards, course projects, reflective logs, etc. just as you would in a face-to-face course. In addition, students are expected to engage in course activities and submit work by due dates and times. The hope is that students will make substantive contributions which reflect integration of assigned materials as well as any outside readings as appropriate. Scholarly contribution is an expectation. For planning purposes, this class will probably require a minimum of 6-9 study hours per week on average. Full participation in the course is a professional expectation and required for successful and satisfactory completion of all course objectives. Online classroom attendance is evidenced by timely participation in the discussion assignments and other assigned activities. Failure to participate in a timely manner to any weekly discussion is an absence, which may result in an evaluation of the student's ability to meet course objectives, and result in failure of the course. Since this is an 8-week course, missing 1 week is equivalent to missing 2 weeks of the class (6 absences). Students missing 1 week will be removed from the class. Students are expected to participate in the discussion board at least 3 days a week to keep up with discussion forums and announcements. In addition, students should check for s daily to ensure that they do not miss important announcements that may be addressed to the student individually and/or to the class. For this session, participation in the Discussion Groups begins on Monday at 0800 and postings will be accepted until Sunday at midnight. All activities and assignments are due Central Standard Time (CST). If an assignment is due by midnight the assignment folder, test, module will be set to close at 11:59 P.M.
10 10 Your instructor will participate and give feedback to discussions on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. You should use Saturday to wrap up any loose items. Saturday at 11:59 PM, the discussion forums will be closed for the week. Any discussion posted after this time will not be considered in the grading. Assignments and papers will be graded within one week after the due date. Quizzes will have an automatic score after testing but the instructor will review the test within a week and grades modified if any changes need to be made. Students may contact the instructor and discuss concepts missed on the quizzes. For test security reasons, the quizzes or the final will not be available to students after testing is completed. Schedule an appointment with you instructor for any questions you might have about your exams. COMMUNICATION Faculty will respond to and/or telephone messages within 24 hours during working hours Monday through Friday. Weekend messages may not be returned until Monday. Written communication via Blackboard: It is an expectation of this class that you use formal writing skills giving appropriate credit to the source for your ideas. Follow APA (2010) 6 th edition (2 nd Printing or higher only) guidelines for referencing. Written communication via All private communication will be done exclusively through your ASU address. The student should check frequently (at least daily) for announcements and policy changes. Virtual communication: Office hours and/or advising may be done with the assistance of the telephone, Skype, Join.me, Google Hangouts, etc. I prefer to be contacted by or by phone. is the easiest way to reach me and my cell phone is on most of the time. Use Good "Netiquette": Check the discussion frequently and respond appropriately and on subject. Focus on one subject per message and use pertinent subject titles. Capitalize words only to highlight a point or for titles. Otherwise, capitalizing is generally viewed as SHOUTING! Be professional and careful with your online interaction. Proper address for faculty is by formal title such as Dr. or Ms. /Mr. Jones unless invited by faculty to use a less formal approach. Cite all quotes, references, and sources. When posting a long message, it is generally considered courteous to warn readers at the beginning of the message that it is a lengthy post. It is extremely rude to forward someone else's messages without their permission. It is fine to use humor, but use it carefully. The absence of face-to-face cues can cause humor to be misinterpreted as criticism or flaming (angry, antagonistic criticism). Feel free to use emoticons such as J or :) to let others know you are being humorous. (The "netiquette" guidelines were adapted from Arlene H. Rinald's article, The Net User Guidelines and Netiquette, Florida Atlantic University, 1994, available from Netcom)
11 11 ASSESSMENT SUBMISSION In this class, submission of assignments (PowerPoints, Teaching Plan, Teaching Project Paper) should be posted in the appropriate Assignment Folder under the Assignment Folders menu button in the Blackboard course site. This is for grading purposes. Issues with technology use arise from time to time. If a technology issue occurs regarding an assessment submission, me at and attach a copy of what you are trying to submit. This lets your faculty know you completed the assessment on time and are just having problems with the online submission feature in Blackboard. Once the problem is resolved, you will submit your assignment to the appropriate folder. This process will document the problem and establish a timeline. Be sure to keep a backup of all work. LATE WORK OR MISSED ASSESSMENTS POLICY The course is set up on weekly assignments. The week begins on Monday and ends on Saturday at 11:59 PM. Assignment due dates are shown on the calendar/schedule and posted within Blackboard under the Weekly Materials menu button. Late assignments are not accepted without prior approval of faculty.

Students are expected to maintain complete honesty and integrity in their online experiences. Any student found guilty of any form of dishonesty in academic work is subject of disciplinary action and possible expulsion from ASU. The Nursing Department adheres to the academic honesty statement as set forth in the Angelo State University Student Handbook ( ) The University "faculty expects all students to engage in all academic pursuits in a manner that is above reproach and to maintain complete honesty and integrity in the academic experience both in and out of the classroom setting and may initiate disciplinary proceedings against a student accused of any form of academic dishonesty, including but not limited to, cheating on an examination or other academic work, plagiarism, collusion, and the abuse of resource materials." PLAGIARISM Plagiarism at ASU is a serious topic. The Angelo State University s Honor Code gives specific details on plagiarism and what it encompasses. Plagiarism is the action or practice of taking someone else's work, idea, etc., and passing it off as one's own. Plagiarism is literary theft. In your discussions and/or your papers, it is unacceptable to copy word for word without quotation marks and the source of the quotation. We use the APA Style Manual of the American Psychological Association as a guide for all writing assignments. Quotes should be used sparingly. It is expected that you will summarize or paraphrase ideas giving appropriate credit to the source both in the body of your paper and the reference list. Papers are subject to be evaluated for originality via Bb Safe Assignment or Turnitin. Resources to help you

18 18 Fatal Error List Rationale: Effective communication of ideas and information is an important skill for all of us to develop. Documents containing grammatical and spelling errors can distract and frustrate the reader. If student papers contain these types of errors, it is difficult to focus on the written content and grade fairly. This is the reason for this fatal error list, which allows students to correct mistakes List of fatal errors: 1. Misspelled words 2. Misused words (e.g. "proven", affect/effect, absorbance/absorbency) 3. Improper use of singular or plural forms of scientific words 4. Sentence fragments 5. Run-on sentences or comma splices 6. Improper formatting of medical terminology/scientific names 7. Capitalization mistakes 8. Serious errors in punctuation that obscure meaning 9. Errors in verb tense or subject/verb agreement 10. First person pronouns 11. Other serious grammatical errors 12. Lack of conformity with assignment format 13. Each improper citation or lack of citation where one is needed 14. Blocks of quotations strung together with linking words or minimal original writing (not applicable to this paper as no quotations are allowed) 15. Improper formatting of tables and figures 16. Lack of units reported on quantitative data Avoiding fatal errors: While the spelling and grammar check features on word processing, programs are helpful, their suggestions are not always correct. Thus, please use other methods of proofreading. The student should read his or her own paper. In addition, the student should have someone else read his or her paper. The student should use a dictionary or composition book to for assistance when uncertain of spelling or grammar. (Adapted from: Fatal error policy [Internet].
