This coursemeets twice weekly for 2.5 hours per week. In addition, students will have out‐of‐class definedreading assignments and independent writing exercises, a minimum of 1.5 hours per week.TIMING Class will begin and end promptly.ATTENDANCE AND PARTICIPATION Class attendance is required and participation is expected.Attendance and informed participation in discussions and group work provide me with evidencethat you completed assigned readings in advance and are engaged in the materials.CIVILITY People often have strong responses to legal, ethical, and policy issues in health care,which inevitably involve discussions about life, death, sex, drugs and other charged topics.Disagreements are common. An important skill in legal and medical professions is the ability tolisten and to discuss various viewpoints in a civil manner, even if you do not agree with a particularviewpoint. Class comments and discussions must be relevant and respectful of others.DEVICES Regarding the use of cell phones, laptops, and other digital devices, the class will developa policy at the beginning of the semester. No matter what is decided, students should keep inmind that checking mail and surfing the web are examples of behavior that are not courteous andmay distract other students, and hence will result in decreased participation points.ACADEMIC HELPCenter for Excellence in Teaching and Learning, Speaking and Argument Program the University of Rochester, we all communicate as writers and speakers, and every writer andspeaker needs an audience.
