Course Requirements

Materials

Students need to:

  • bring the course book “Touchstone 1” to every class.
  • bring any materials the instructor places on reserve at the copy center or posted online.

Attendance

Students are advised to attend classes regularly. Failure to attend classes regularly will result in losing track of the ongoing process of learning as well as missing valuable opportunities to get feedback on their progress. Regular attendance and active participation will constitute 10 points of the total grade.

Participation

Participation is different from attendance. It requires:

  • contribution to class discussions and activities.
  • acting with academic courtesy and academic honesty.
  • bringing all the materials needed to class.
  • following online pages regularly.


Bilgi Learn Pages

Since according to university rules all announcements on the online page are official, heeding these announcements is students’ responsibility. Therefore, students need to:

  • carefully follow the announcements and materials provided through Bilgi Online Education Pages. Students are advised to check the Online Education page at least a day before each class in order to follow weekly pacing and announcements.

Academic Courtesy

Academic courtesy means acceptable behavior in an academic environment. In other words, students are expected to arrive to class on time, show respect to peers and instructor, and come to class prepared with the necessary materials. Moreover, students are responsible for following rules of classroom conduct in addition to university rules. Repeated violations will result in disciplinary action.

Academic Honesty

Unethical behavior such as cheating and plagiarism will be officially recorded by the academic staff and reported to the Student Affairs Office which will result in disciplinary action and failing grade on the task or assignment. Plagiarism is claiming somebody else’s work as your own and it is students’ responsibility to credit work they have cited.

“Burden of Proof”: If the instructor doubts that a student has completed his or her work independently, it is the student’s responsibility to show that he or she completed the task on his or her own at each and every stage. Failure to provide evidence is grounds for receiving a failing grade on the assignment.

Assessment

Courses are assessed with on-going assessment tools. All throughout the course, there will be quizzes, assignments/homework, in-class and take-home studies and participation grades will constitute the final grade of the course.
Quizzes and assginments/homework missed due to absence cannot be made up.
