and university-sanction is applied.
2. Attendance
Attendance will be taken in every session. It is your responsibility to keep up with the material
and stay in touch with your team. Please inform me in advance (by email of phone) if you are

3. Several Issues
As a member of the learning community, each student has a responsibility to other person. It is
prohibited for students to use cell phones during scheduled classes. Cell phones must be turned
off or put in a silent mode and cannot be taken out during class. At the discretion of the
facilitator, exception to this issue is possible in special circumstances. Use of personal notebooks
or tablets during class for the purpose of taking notes or other applications consistent with class
objectives is encouraged. However, it is expected that students should respect others and the
instructor by not using notebooks for non-class related activities, such as email, surfing the web
for personal reasons or entertainment, as these uses can distract rather than enhance the learning
environment. The instructor reserves the right to ask students to close their notebooks at any
point during class. This requires that we all listen carefully to each other. Any academic cheating
such as plagiarism will result in obtaining grade E for the course. Students caught sleeping in
class or reading material not related to the subject matter under discussion may be asked to leave.
