5 Web Resources: The Writing Center Online Writer's Handbook Instructor Information: Please see the separate page inside the course to find instructor contact information as well as a statement of virtual office hours and other communication information. You can expect to receive a response from the instructor within hours unless notified of extenuating circumstances. Testing Procedures: The Final Exam (20% of course grade) and all course requirements are submitted online. Grading Procedures: Online Discussions ( Module 1-6 = 320% points; Module 7 = 2 points) Quality Improvement Project 20% Quality Leader Project 15% Paper for Publication (Letter = 5%, 25% Outline = 5%; Final Paper = 15%) Final Exam 20% Total 100% Grading Scale:

6 A B C D F <70 Assignments and Projects: Online Discussions (20%) - All students are expected to actively participate in online class discussions. The aim is to encourage thoughtful interaction among students and faculty, not simply to present information. Student responses to discussion questions must be substantive, and should demonstrate an awareness of comments previously posted and discussed. Repetition, or mere statements of concurrence (e.g. Yes, I agree with what the last person said.) are not usually helpful. If you agree or disagree with another student's comment, explain why. Because the D2L system has its own way of formatting material posted on the discussion feature, students will not be expected to strictly follow APA guidelines for discussion board submissions. However, the student is held to academic standards of writing style and the use of proper grammar, punctuation and spelling, as well as the expectation of documenting sources when citing the work or opinions of others. Discussion board participation will be graded as follows: Modules 1-6 = 3 points each; Module 7-2 points. These are worth a total of 20 points towards your course grade. Quality Leader Project (15%) Each student will select a prominent health care quality leader from a list provided by the instructor. Students will prepare a powerpoint presentation to introduce their leaders to the class via the course website. Each presentation should include a brief biography, a description of the leader's philosophy(ies), his or her major professional contributions, the current status of this leader and his or her work, and a list of references in APA format. Powerpoint files are due to the instructor by the 2rd week of class. After review by the instructor, the files will be posted for other students to review. Quality Improvement Plan (20%) - Students will document a quality of care problem and develop a quality improvement plan for a specific clinical setting, preferably a setting where they are employed. The problem focus and the setting must be approved by the instructor. More specific criteria for this project will be provided separately. The final plan will be due by the 7th week of class.

7 Paper (25%) Students will select a topic (problem, issue, or concept) relevant to health care quality that is suitable for publication, and choose a journal that might be interested in publishing such a paper. This assignment will include the following components: 1. Approval of the topic and target journal by the instructor by the 2nd week of class. 2. Submission of a query to the journal editor, copied to the instructor by the 3rd week of class, to determine the journal's interest in publishing this type of article. The query should include an overview of the article, why the topic was selected, why it would be a good fit for this journal, and the student's qualifications for writing it. 3. An outline of the paper, a reference list in the journal's format (e.g. APA, AMA, etc.), and a copy of the journal's contributor guidelines is submitted by the 5th week of class. 4. A final draft of the manuscript is submitted to the instructor by the 9th week of class. The paper should reflect a thorough review and synthesis of professional literature related to the topic; documentation of the current status of the problem, issue, or concept; and strategies for addressing the issue. The paper must adhere to the guidelines for the journal (e.g. page length, reference style, etc.). Final Exam (20%) A final exam will be posted during the last week of the course. Exam content will be derived primarily from the powerpoint presentations and the course discussions. Late Policy: Students are expected to: Check the course calendar for the due dates of assignments. Check the course discussion board frequently for announcements. Course Ground Rules:
