Teaching & Learning Methods Class lectures: Class lectures will expose students to the knowledge required by this course Class Discussions: Relevant issues will be discussed in class. These discussions are supposed to improve the students' communication and problem solving skills by motivating them to express their opinions. Activity: Students will be expected to work on a group activity. The activity could be a small software project, or a case study of a healthcare provider. In addition to improving the students' technical and analytical skills, this project aims at improving the students' team work, self-management, and planning and organizing skills. Self-study: Students will be required to study one of the assigned chapters as self-study. A number of questions from the self-study CHAPTER will be included in the exam. This learning method aims at improving the students' learning skills.
Attendance Participation Activity Exams Makeup Exams Workload Code of Conduct
Other Policies and Notes Excellent attendance is expected. In accordance with university regulations, students missing more than 20% of total classes are subject to failure. No excuses will be accepted. If you miss class, it is your responsibility to find out about any announcements or assignments you may have missed. Attendance will be recorded at the beginning or end of each class. You are expected to participate in class. Participation includes asking and answering questions, raising issues, and suggesting solutions to the discussed problems. Students are expected to work on an activity within a group of 3-4 students. The activity could be a small software project, or a case study of a healthcare provider. All exams will be CLOSE-BOOK. The format for the exams is generally as follows: multiplechoice, and short essay questions. Makeup exam should not be given unless there is a valid excuse. Arrangements to take an exam at a time different than the one scheduled MUST be made prior to the scheduled exam time. In accordance with university regulations, students should bring a valid excuse authenticated through valid channels in JUST. Average work-load student should expect to spend is 4 hours/week. Quizzes and exams need to be done individually. Copying of another student's work, even if changes are subsequently made, is inappropriate, and such work will not be accepted. Cheating or copying from neighbor on exam is an illegal and unethical activity and standard JUST policy will be applied. All graded assignments must be your own work.
