COURSE GUIDELINES

 

 

 

Class Structure

 

 

 

As a hybrid class, we will generally meet on Mondays and you will be responsible for additional learning and activities on your own for the remainder of the week.  The teaching format is based on active learning which means each learner should come to class prepared; having read assigned readings and watched related videos.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Course Readings and Other Assignments

 

 

 

For each class session, you will generally be assigned a section of the textbook or other articles and videos.  The instructor may add or substitute readings or videos during the course and will notify you through Canvas.

 

 

 

Assignments are due by midnight of the due date.  The first late submission will be accepted, but the point value will be reduced by 10% for every day late.  Subsequent late submissions will earn 0 (zero) points.  This is a hard and fast policy absent a doctors’ note or other life altering occurrences

 

 

 

 

 

Laptops and Other Electronics

 

 

 

You may use your laptop or tablet to take notes or review readings.  However, social/personal use of laptops during class time is not acceptable.  It is distracting to other students and the instructor.

 

 

 

Cell phones should be turned off (not on vibrate) and put out of site.  If you are monitoring a family emergency or otherwise have to be available please see the instructor and we will make appropriate arrangements.

 

 

 

Attendance

 

 

 

This is active learning class; you will learn most by being in class and participating in the assigned activities (both in class and outside of class).  Attendance for the final three classes will exempt you from a written final exam. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

ADMINISTRATIVE WITHDRAWAL [Note: The IUPUI Administrative

 

Withdrawal Policy applies only to undergraduate courses.  Graduate course syllabi

 

should not include this section.]

 

A basic requirement of this course is that you will participate in all class meetings and conscientiously complete all required course activities and/or assignments. Keep in touch with me if you are unable to attend, participate, or complete an assignment on time. If you miss more than half of the required activities within the first 25% of the course without contacting me, you may be administratively withdrawn from this course.  Our course meets once per week; thus if you miss more than two classes in the first four weeks, you may be withdrawn. Administrative withdrawal may have academic, financial, and financial aid implications. Administrative withdrawal will take place after the full refund period, and if you are administratively withdrawn from the course you will not be eligible for a tuition refund. If you have questions about the administrative withdrawal policy at any point during the semester, please contact me.

 

STUDENTS WITH DISABILITIES

 

Students needing accommodations because of a disability will need to register with Adaptive Educational Services (AES) and complete the appropriate forms issued by AES before accommodations will be given.  The AES office is located in Taylor Hall, UC 100.  You can also reach the office by calling 274-3241.  Visit http://aes.iupui.edu/ for more information.

 

IU POLICY REGARDING ACTS OF SEXUAL MISCONDUCT

 

 

 

What you should know about sexual misconduct:  IU does not tolerate acts of sexual misconduct, including sexual harassment and all forms of sexual violence.  If you have experienced sexual misconduct, or know someone who has, the University can help.  It is important to know that federal regulations and University policy require faculty to promptly report complaints of potential sexual misconduct known to them to their campus Deputy Title IX Coordinator(s) to ensure that appropriate measures are taken and resources are made available.  The University will work with you to protect your privacy by sharing information with only those that need to know to ensure the University can respond and assist.  If you are seeking help and would like to speak to someone confidentially, you can make an appointment with a Mental Health Counselor on campus (contact information available at http://stopsexualviolence.iu.edu/employee/confidential.html). Find more information about sexual violence, including campus and community resources at http://stopsexualviolence.iu.edu/. 

 

 

 

 

 

STUDENT COURSE EVALUATION

 

 

 

The School of Public Health evaluates all courses.  Student course evaluations will

 

be conducted in a manner that maintains the integrity of the process and the anonymity

 

of respondents.

 

 

 

 

 

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY

 

 

 

Academic and personal misconduct by students in this class are defined and dealt with

Academic Misconduct

 

Students are responsible for upholding and maintaining academic and professional honesty and integrity (IUPUI Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct, available at http://studentaffairs.iupui.edu/student-rights/student-code/. Part II Student Responsibilities, G).

 

 

 

Plagiarism is the most common academic misconduct violation, and some students, who have been disciplined for plagiarism, have said they were not aware that they had plagiarized their work. This has occurred in both individual work and work completed as part of a group project or paper. Students who work in group projects should know that they are equally responsible for ensuring that their project/paper does not contain plagiarized material. Each student is responsible for ensuring literature reviews prepared by the group are properly reference and are not plagiarized. Students should also know that taking credit for work they did not do as part of a group project is representing someone else’s work as their own.

 

Be aware that ‘not knowing’ does not excuse academic misconduct – every student is responsible for knowing the rules.

 

 

 

The IU School of Education’s ‘How to Recognize Plagiarism’ is an on-line tutorial that can help you ensure that your work is not plagiarized. This tutorial can be accessed at http://www.indiana.edu/~istd/.  If you have any questions about what constitutes academic misconduct for a course you are taking, be sure to ask the instructor for an explanation.

 

 

 

All faculty have the responsibility of fostering the “intellectual honesty as well as the intellectual development of students” and part of this responsibility means that faculty must investigate cases of potential academic misconduct promptly and thoroughly. Faculty members also have the responsibility of taking appropriate action when academic misconduct occurs. The penalties for academic misconduct include but are not limited to lowering a grade on an assignment, lowering a course grade, or failing a student for a course. Significant violations of the code can result in expulsion from the University.

 

 

 

Faculty in the School of Public Health take their responsibilities seriously and do not tolerate cheating, plagiarism, or any other form of academic misconduct.  All students should read about their responsibilities for academic integrity in the IUPUI Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct to ensure that they understand what these terms mean and what penalties can be issued for academic misconduct. 

 

 

 

The IUPUI Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct defines four areas of academic misconduct: cheating, fabrication, plagiarism, and interference. The prohibited activities and actions include the following:

 

 

 

1. Cheating. A student must not use or attempt to use unauthorized assistance, materials, information, or study aids in any academic exercise, including, but not limited to, the following:

 

a.   A student must not use external assistance on any “in-class” or “take-home” examination, unless the instructor specifically has authorized external assistance. This prohibition includes, but is not limited to, the use of tutors, books, notes, and calculators.

 

b.   A student must not use another person as a substitute in the taking of an examination or quiz.

 

c.   A student must not steal examinations or other course materials.

 

d.   A student must not allow others to conduct research or to prepare work for him or her without advance authorization from the instructor to whom the work is being submitted. Under this prohibition, a student must not make any unauthorized use of materials obtained from commercial term paper companies or from files of papers prepared by other persons.

 

e.   A student must not collaborate with other persons on a particular project and submit a copy of a written report which is represented explicitly or implicitly as the student’s individual work.

 

f.    A student must not use any unauthorized assistance in a laboratory, at a computer terminal, or on field work.

 

g.   A student must not submit substantial portions of the same academic work for credit or honors more than once without permission of the instructor to whom the work is being submitted.

 

h.   A student must not alter a grade or score in any way.

 

 

 

2. Fabrication. A student must not falsify or invent any information or data in an academic exercise including, but not limited to, records or reports, laboratory results, and citations to the sources of information.

 

 

 

3. Plagiarism. A student must not adopt or reproduce ideas, words, or statements of another person without appropriate acknowledgment. A student must give credit to the originality of others and acknowledge an indebtedness whenever he or she does any of the following:

 

a.   Quotes another person’s actual words, either oral or written;

 

b.   Paraphrases another person’s words, either oral or written;

 

c.   Uses another person’s idea, opinion, or theory; or

 

d.   Borrows facts, statistics, or other illustrative material, unless the information is common knowledge.

 

 

 

4. Interference.

 

a.   A student must not steal, change, destroy, or impede another student’s work. Impeding another student’s work includes, but is not limited to, the theft, defacement, or mutilation of resources so as to deprive others of the information they contain.

 

b.   A student must not give or offer a bribe, promise favors, or make threats with the intention of affecting a grade or the evaluation of academic performance.

 

5. Violation of Course Rules

 

A student must not violate course rules established by a department, the course syllabus, verbal or written instructions, or the course materials that are rationally related to the content of the course or to the enhancement of the learning process in the course.

 

6. Facilitating Academic Dishonesty

 

A student must not intentionally or knowingly help or attempt to help another student to commit an act of academic misconduct, nor allow another student to use his or her work or resources to commit an act of misconduct.

 

 

 

 

 

Civility and Disorderly Conduct

 

Students are expected to conduct themselves in a courteous and civil manner in interactions with professors and fellow students. This requires each person to be courteous, tolerant, and respectful during interactions with one another in all interactions, including face-to-fact interactions, e-mail, and telephone conversations.  Examples of discourteous behavior during class include reading the newspaper, working crossword puzzles, listening to headphones, talking or laughing with others, arriving late, using computers to surf the web, allowing cell phones to ring or sending text messages, or other non-class activities. The use of language, tone, or gestures that are inappropriate or offensive is also discourteous.  These behaviors are not acceptable, and faculty and staff will address these problems as they arise either in class or on an individual basis.

 

 

 

Disorderly conduct that interferes with teaching, research, administration, or other university or university-authorized activity will not be tolerated and will be reported immediately to the Office of the Dean of Students for disposition, which may result in disciplinary action, including possible suspension and/or expulsion from the university. Students should read the IUPUI Code of Student Rights, Responsibilities, and Conduct, which can be accessed athttp://studentaffairs.iupui.edu/student-rights/student-code/  in order to understand their responsibilities as a student.

 

 

 

 

 

Communication between Faculty and Students

 

Consistent with campus policy, a student’s campus email address is the official means of communication between current School of Public Health students and School of Public Health staff. For email communication with School of Public Health faculty, current School of Public Health students should refer to course syllabi for instructors’ preferences (Oncourse, Webmail, etc.). This policy applies to current students only. Students can forward IUPUI email to another account and still meet the requirements of this policy. Instructions for forwarding IUPUI email to another account can be found at http://uits.iu.edu/scripts/ose.cgi?berh.def.help.

 

 

 

 

 

Students Called to Active Duty

 

The School of Public Health encourages any student who is in the Indiana Military Reserves and is called to active duty, specialized training, or as part of disaster relief efforts to finish his/her coursework if at all possible. Students who cannot complete their courses have the option of withdrawing with 100% fee refund, if they meet certain requirements. Students who are called to active duty may qualify for an incomplete (provided that all the above criteria have been met). For further information, please contact the Director of Undergraduate Education.

 

 

 

Course Withdrawals

 

Students who stop attending class without properly withdrawing from the class will receive a grade of F. It is important to withdraw from a course within specified timeframes (see chart below). Note that withdrawals after Week 12 of a regular session or Week 4 of a summer session are rarely granted. Poor performance in a course is not grounds for a late withdrawal.

 

 

 

Withdrawal forms will not be processed in the Office of the Registrar after the last day of classes. Any requests for a late withdrawal after the last day of classes must go through the grade appeal process, but each student should remember that in accordance with campus policy, the School of Public Health does not permit a student to withdraw from a course if he/she has completed the course requirements. Grade replacement should be used in this case.  See the Office of the Registrar’s website at http://registrar.iupui.edu/withdraw.html for more information.

 

 

 

 

 

Withdrawal Deadlines

Administrative Withdrawals

 

A basic requirement of this course is that you will participate in all class meetings and conscientiously complete all required course activities and/or assignments. Keep in touch with the course instructor if you are unable to attend, participate, or complete an assignment on time. If you miss more than half of the required activities within the first 25% of the course without contacting the course instructor, you may be administratively withdrawn from this course. Administrative withdrawal may have academic, financial, and financial aid implications. Administrative withdrawal will take place after the full refund period, and if you are administratively withdrawn from the course you will not be eligible for a tuition refund. If you have questions about the administrative withdrawal policy at any point during the semester, please contact the course instructor.

 

 

 

Incompletes

 

A grade of incomplete (I) indicates that a ‘substantial portion’ of the work in a course has been satisfactorily but not entirely completed by the student as of the end of the semester. The incomplete can be given to a student facing a hardship such that such that it would be unjust to hold the student to the established time limits for completing the work. Students should contact their instructor to determine if they are eligible for the incomplete. Poor performance in a course is not grounds for an incomplete. The School of Public Health follows the campus guidelines, which may be accessed at the Office of the Registrar’s website at http://registrar.iupui.edu/incomp.html in awarding incompletes. Incompletes must be removed within a time period specified by the instructor, but the time period may not exceed one year after the semester in which the student was enrolled in the course. The incomplete will revert to an ‘F’ if not completed within the specified timeframe.

 

 

 

Grade Changes

 

Under certain circumstances, students can seek grade changes for previously taken courses if they believe that a grade has been calculated or assigned incorrectly. A student who is seeking a grade change must first contact the instructor and ask for the grade change. In the event the instructor does not change the grade, the student can file a Change of Grade Petition with the Registrar’s Office. In the School of Public Health, a student has 90 days after the conclusion of a course to appeal a grade.  In cases of extenuating circumstances, the School of Public Health may consider petitions filed after this date.  The School of Public Health will review the request and make a final decision on a case-by-case basis. The Change of Grade petition form is located at the Office of the Registrar’s website at http://registrar.iupui.edu/grdfrm.html.

 

 

 

Final Exam Schedule

 

If a final exam is given, it must be held on the day and time set in the final exam schedule. If an instructor has changed the final exam date, the student should first consult with the instructor. Students who have more than three final exams in one day or insufficient time to get from one exam to another should consult with their instructors to resolve these conflicts. Exams should not be given in the week before the final exam week. If a student is not able to resolve a final exam problem with the instructor, the student may report the problem to the Director of Undergraduate Education or the Associate Chair for Academic Programs and Alumni Services. See the Office of the Registrar’s website at http://registrar.iupui.edu/accal.html for the final exam week schedule.
