Online Material: Course announcements, lecture notes, grades, and lab handouts will be available on Blackboard and Mastering AandP. It is REQUIRED that you print lab handouts to bring with you to lab for all lab assignments other than PAL and PhysioEx labs. PAL and PhysioEx labs are to be completed online and are also available to you in paper format in the respective textbooks. All iWorx lab handouts are posted in Blackboard and should be printed and brought to lab with you on the relevant day. Grades will be made available to you on Blackboard. I also suggest checking Blackboard for any announcements that might be posted about once a week. Please see the supplementary information about logging into Mastering AandP prior to the first week of lab.
Lab Evaluation: The lab component of this class is worth a total of 100 points. Each lab will be graded out of 100 points and the average of the 10 total labs will make up the lab component of your grade. There is no extra credit. You earn the grade you receive and you will have ample opportunity to earn the highest possible grade.
Makeup Labs: There are NO makeup labs unless you have a valid written excuse from the Office of Undergraduate Education (http://www.albany.edu/undergraduateeducation/) or in the case of dire extenuating circumstances, in which case permission must be granted prior to the missed lab. There are no exceptions to this policy. Makeup labs must be scheduled within another section of the same week of labs. See me as soon as possible so that we can make arrangements for you to attend another section.
Special Accommodations: Students with special needs should notify the instructor. I will be happy to work with you and make accommodations, as needed. Please notify me if you anticipate needing special accommodations or have questions about physical access. For more information about “reasonable accommodation”, please see the Disability Resource Center website at www.albany.edu/disability/index.shtml.
Email Etiquette: Please be aware that I teach many classes. If you need to email me, you MUST include the class number (ANT 316) and the section number (L01-6579) in the SUBJECT LINE of your email. You must also include your name at the closing of your email. I will not respond to emails unless they are addressed accordingly. I will respond to your emails respectfully, and I expect you to address me in kind. That means that in an email you should include a greeting, a succinct body stating your question/concern/problem, as well as a closing (that includes your name).
Cell Phone Usage: Do not use cell phones in lab. Text messaging during class is rude and disrespectful. Use your time in class wisely and leave the phone in your bag.
Dishonesty: Group work is acceptable. Cheating is not. I will know if you are cheating if you and your classmates have the same answers, verbatim, to questions. Cheating will result in a grade of 0 for that lab. Cheating serves no one, especially you. These labs are designed to improve your understanding of course material; you will only benefit from learning and understanding the information. Violations will be handled in accordance with the University’s policies: http://www.albany.edu/undergraduate_bulletin/regulations.htm.
