DISCUSSIONS
Participation in Discussions is a very important part of this class experience and cannot be
made up after each module's discussion ends. Discussions are where we discuss the
readings and benefit from each class member's contributions and questions. You'll find
Discussions within each module. You will be also expected to respond to your classmates'
postings. You will be expected to offer helpful comments as you can. You'll want to be sure
you do so to receive all points for the week. You will have a rubric to help you understand
expectations for Discussions. Remember, you will receive points which will count toward
your final grade for participating in the Discussions, so of course, not participating will have
a negative effect on your final course grade.
LAB ASSIGNMENTS
Laboratory experiences provide the opportunity to form study groups for the "lecture"
material as well as the lab activities. It is important that you understand the purpose of
forming a study group and/or lab group is to share the learning experience and learn from
one another. It is not to share the work itself! This means that, though you may work
together, discuss the labs and study together, each student must complete, write and
submit his/her own, individual, original work. All materials, results, graphics, etc. must be
original to each individual student. Duplicate reports or assignments are considered an
academic integrity infraction. However, you may use other students' work for comparison
sake if, and only if, proper citation and credit is included. Enter into this method carefully.
To avoid the possibility of plagiarism or cheating, contact your instructor for clarification and
permission.
For guidelines on required materials and when to begin Lab Assignments in order to
complete them on time, review the Lab: Estimated Completion Times and Student Material
Requirements page in the Lab Information > Requirements & Instructions section of the Syllabus
module in Content.
NOTE: You will be required to create a video of yourself performing both the Module 2 Aseptic Technique and Use of Media lab, and the Module 5 - Hand Washing Techniques lab,
and submit a link to those videos (or upload the videos) to the appropriate assignment
folders. For more information and video recording tips, see the Lab Kit Activity Video
Instructions.
LEARNSMART ASSIGNMENTS
