Participation in Class Discussions

Methods of Instruction

  • Explanation, demonstration, and examples of graphic design concepts and software tools and techniques using in-class and online resources.

  • Hands-on software assignments incorporating graphic design concepts and software tools and techniques.

  • Reading assignments from textbooks, handouts, and online sources.

  • In-class discussions based on assigned readings and hands-on software assignments.

Attendance and Participation

You must attend class in order to participate in class discussions. Attendance records are kept and you need to notify me in advance if you expect to miss a class. If I’m not notified, your absence will be recorded as unexcused. The college catalog states

“Unexcused hours of absence in excess of the number of course credit hours is excessive. This translates to two hours of absence for a two-credit class, three hours of absence for a three-credit class, and so on. An instructor can drop any student who has excessive unexcused absences. An instructor has the sole right to excuse an absence, assign makeup work, or apply a punitive grading policy as established by the instructor’s syllabus for the class. Specifically, you are expected to comply with the attendance policy set by each instructor.”

(p. 49 of the 2007-2008 GBC General Catalog)

Please consider:

  • Attendance and participation in class discussions are part of your final grade.

  • You should work on hands-on projects in class when scheduled regardless if you can work on a project at another location. I’m here to help you, and I want to observe your progress.

If, for some reason, you feel that you cannot complete the course, you must officially withdraw from the class by the course drop deadline (Friday, April 18, 2008) by contacting Admissions & Records at 753-2102, and completing the Course Withdraw Form.

  • Officially withdrawing results in a "W" on your grade report. The "W" is not used in computing your cumulative GPA; it will appear on your transcript and be permanent.

  • If you do not officially withdraw, your grade will be based on the work you have completed averaged with zeros for work you have not completed.

Course Grade

Grades describe the quality of work completed. Grading in this course is based upon the following:

Attendance & Participation 25%

Weekly Assignments 50%

Final Project 25%

Attendance and Participation is evaluated based on quality of participation during class discussions and while working on assignments and projects.

Weekly Assignments’ components have point values which are specified for each assignment.

Details about the Final Project will be provided during the 13th week of class, and the work is due at the end of class in the 15th week.

No late work is accepted, unless turning in work late has been approved by the instructor prior to its due date.

If you have any questions about any of the assignments, please let me know—before they’re due!

The final course grade is calculated on a percentage scale and then recorded as the corresponding grade point value and letter grade as shown below.

Percentage Grade Point Value Letter Grade Quality of Work

94-100 4.0 A Superior

90-93 3.7 A-

87-89 3.3 B+

83-86 3.0 B Above Average

80-82 2.7 B-

77-79 2.3 C+

73-76 2.0 C Average

70-72 1.7 C-

67-69 1.3 D+

63-66 1.0 D Below Average

60-62 0.7 D-

<60 0.0 F Failure

Grade Appeals

If a student has concerns or complaints about grading, s/he should follow the steps of the published procedures as stated on page 51 in the 2007-2008 GBC General Catalog.

Class Work

Students should keep their graded work until they know their final course grade at the end of the semester in case there is any discrepancy in grades.

Academic Integrity

GBC is dedicated to education. Therefore, the college demands a high level of scholarly behavior and academic honesty. No form of academic dishonesty is acceptable, and the Rules and Disciplinary Procedures for Members of the University Community will be enforced.

Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) Statement

GBC supports providing equal access for students with disabilities. An advisor is available to discuss appropriate accommodations with students. Please contact the ADA Officer (Julie Byrnes) at 775-753-2271 at your earliest convenience to request timely and appropriate accommodations.

Student Computer Lab Use

The computer labs are provided as a service to students. Use of the computer lab is a privilege, not a right. Users must refrain from doing anything that annoys others or disrupts their education. The computer lab cannot be used for non-college work. If you notice anyone violating the policy of the computer lab, notify one of the lab assistants or a faculty member immediately.

Expect to have to use the lab often. There are several hours each week when a lab assistant monitors the lab.

Lab Rules

  1. Computer lab use is restricted to authorized individuals: students, faculty, and staff with appropriate logins.

  1. Logins are issued to individual users and ARE NOT to be used by anyone else.

  2. Food and drink are prohibited while in a computer lab. Items may be left on a table outside of a lab.

  3. Children are allowed in the labs only if they are enrolled in a course offered specifically for them.

  4. Internet access is to be used for class-related work only. Internet activities will be randomly monitored.

  5. Computer labs are for students to use for class-related work only.

  6. Copying of ANY software is prohibited without prior authorization.

  7. No ringing cellular phones in the labs.

Final Notes

Don’t let yourself get behind! Once we begin, we will cover several concepts in each class. If you are confused about any particular concept, let me know immediately.

You will be learning a tremendous amount of new material in this semester. For some, all this new information may be overwhelming. Be patient. You are here to learn and I am here to facilitate your learning.
