Course Introduction: Fashion History
Assessment Methods for Course Learning Goals
Course learning goals are assessed using a variety of performance-based tasks, multimedia object based projects (Coggle, Padlet discussions, infographics, Instagram etc.) and a few quizzes. Students must follow instructions, show critical thinking and utilize their curiousity in this course as they work through assignments bith individual and in groups.
Assignments will be handled no differently than if you were working in the fashion industry. I recommend that you not wait until the last minute. Your lack of planning does not create urgency on the part of your instructor. Assuming so would mean that your time is more valuable than your instructor’s, and we prefer to think that the time of all involved is valuable.
Grading and Behavior Policies
Care, respect, and integrity are expected in written and classroom exchanges. All written work, including postings in discussions, should be proofread for clarity, spelling, and grammatical errors. Language that is appropriate for the classroom setting is expected within this class in all forms of communication, postings, and assignments. Cheating, plagiarism, and fabrication of facts will not be tolerated. This is an online course and you are responsible for all required work therein.
Outside sources, in any assignment, must be referenced appropriately (APA style.)
See Purdue Owl for an APA Guide.
