Honesty

Description
anonymous peer review every end of the semester/ course. Students are encouraged to
grade their group peers fairly using an online matrix that covers individual contribution
towards group discussions & group assignments.
In order to achieve previously identified course objectives, we will follow an interactive
class format. Students are expected to come to class on time, take notes & prepare the
assigned class material for each session by doing some readings and/or case studies.
In the interest of providing a meaningful learning experience & creating & exciting class
environment, students thoughtful participation is required, whereby students own
experiences, comments, anecdotes ought to be shared, including relevant issues & question
raised in class.
Considering the intensive nature of this module & heavy emphasis on class discussion &
interaction, attendance of all sessions & class participation are necessary for a
successful completion of this course.
The course method will consist of lectures, facilitation, presentations, assignments & paper
submission. The lecturer organizes, supervises & facilitates the class as well as conduct lectures
in the first few meetings. The students will then be asked to lead class discussions & make
report presentations. For their own benefit, students are expected to read the assigned
chapter(s) prior to the pertinent class sessions, & optional reading (choices from suggested
reference books or other related PR books).
Short case studies that illustrate the complexities of Corporate Communications
management & invite students to apply their ideas in practical problem solving.
Classroom participation is expected & required. This will be evaluated using a selfevaluation format.
Group assignment with the objective of getting a deeper understanding into some
important concepts & applications. With this assignment, students will have to analyze
Corporate Communications management case studies & present professional presentation.
Group participation is expected & will be evaluated using a group & self-evaluation
format. Assessment is based on the quality of group assignment, contribution to the
coursework, & involvement in the class. It must be noted that group assignment means
members of the group are to work as a team, & there should be no free riders!
Any type of activity that is considered dishonest by reasonable standards may constitute
academic misconduct. The most common forms of academic misconduct are cheating &
plagiarism. All instances of academic dishonesty will result in a grade of zero for the work
involved.
All assignments will need to have a signed declaration on the 2nd page (after the cover) that
the material submitted is the students own work & that all work taken from other sources is
properly acknowledged.
Use this wording on the 2nd page of each report :
I certify that the attached assignment is my own work & that any material obtained from other
sources has been acknowledged.

Students must abide by policies in the LSPR Student Handbook, & the Basic Graduate Student
Responsibilities.
Students are expected to log in & participate as part of their learning in the course. Instructors
establish specific policies relating to absences in their courses & communicate these policies to
the students through the course syllabi. Individual instructors, based upon the nature of the
course, determine what effect excused & unexcused absences have in determining grades &
upon students ability to remain enrolled in their courses. LSPR reserves the right to determine
that excessive absences, whether justified or not, are sufficient cause for institutional
withdrawals or failing grades.
It is expected that students in this class will conduct themselves with good sense, courtesy, &
dignity in all course-related activities. This includes your behavior towards other students & the
instructor. Inappropriate language or flaming will not be tolerated & can negatively affect
your grade.
It is imperative that students in an online environment exhibit proper online etiquette &
appropriate online behaviors. Students deemed to exhibit inappropriate online behavior may
be dropped from the course.
Students are expected to participate in all discussions & virtual classroom chats when directed
to do so. Students are to be respectful & courteous to others in the discussions. Foul or abusive
language will not be tolerated.
Discussion, chat, & e-mail spaces within this course are for class purposes only, unless otherwise
stated. Please remember to conduct yourself collegially & professionally. Unlike in the
classroom setting, what you say in the online environment is documented & not easily erased
or forgotten.
The following guidelines apply:
Avoid using ALL CAPS, sarcasm, & language that could come across as strong or offensive.
Use proper punctuation, grammar & be sure to edit your contribution before posting.
Read all postings before posting your responses to discussion topics so as to not
unnecessarily repeat information.
Keep chat comments brief & to the point.
Focus on one topic at a time when chatting or posting to discussions.
Remember that unlike in face-to-face learning environments what you say in discussions &
chats is documented & available to be revisited. Choose your words & discussion topics
carefully.

Description
The majority of online class time is spent posting opinions & sharing information. Therefore, it is
very important to communicate with courtesy & professionalism. Professional Courtesy includes
respecting others' opinions, being courteous & respectful, & working together in the spirit of
cooperation. Sexist, heterosexist, & racist language should not be used when communicating in
the course. Slang should not be used in the discussion posts. The same guidelines for
professional communication in the classroom apply to content that a student references in a
discussion or assignment. Please make sure that all content that is brought into the online
classroom is professional in nature. If a student links to material that is non-professional,
derogatory, pornographic, or promotes personal opinion (such as political or religious
agenda) the link will be deleted & the student may be subject to further disciplinary action.
Since we cannot see each other in the online environment, it is hard to tell if a writer is bashful,
bored, sarcastic, angry, or just kidding. Therefore, when you critique your classmates, please
proof-read your responses carefully before you post them. Refrain from slipping into
arguments. Be sensitive & positive in your approach to others, & careful with your words. You
are encouraged to visit the following websites & review proper communications in the
electronic format:
www.albion.com/netiquette/
www.bspage.com/1netiq/Netiq.html
All emails or discussion postings will receive a response from your professor within 48 hours.
You can send email anytime that is convenient for you. Lecturer will check their email messages
during the day throughout the work-week (Monday through Friday) & will respond to email
messages during the work-week by the close of business (5:00 pm) on the day following their
receipt of them. Emails received by lecturer on Friday will be responded to by the close of
business on the following Monday.
When sending email, use your lspr.edu email address. Lecturers have the right to Not
respond to emails that are,
a. Non-lspr.edu, as there is no way to authenticate the sender. Make sure students include
your name, title of the course, time of the course & a brief reason for your email in the
subject line.
b. Without a subject line. Take the time to use proper spelling & grammar in your email.
You are contacting your lecturer, NOT a friend. This is professional email addressing a
specific concern related to your education. Take responsibility for your concern & address
me in a professional manner. Lecturers will always address you with the same
professionalism & courtesy.
c. With improper/bad : grammar, spelling and/or basic professionalisms or courtesies.
In regards to the given Individual & Group assignments, students are expected to,
Submit all assignments before or on the due date specified in the discussion with lecturer.
Late submission will be penalized by -3 (minus three) per day deducted from your score.
To mitigate technical issues, please do the following 3 steps, prior to participating in live chat,
1. Check your internet speed. Visit www.speedtest.net & check whether your internet
download or upload speeds are at the minimum of,
512 kbps (for Download) & 256 kbps (for Upload)
Internet speeds lower than the above numbers, could cause a reduction of interactive
levels on our LMS.
2. Refresh your internet browser. Ensure that you have refreshed your internet browser, so
as to experience higher internet speeds. On your laptop/desktop, you could apply the
following short-cut,
Ctrl-Shift-R (for Windows OS users) or Command-Shift-R (for Apple OS users)
For smartphone users, please re-start your handphones instead.
3. Recommended internet browsers. We recommend that you use the latest free internet
browsers from Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox so you can have an optimal experience
on your laptop, desktop or smartphone (they can be downloaded for free from Google
Appstore or Apple iStore).
Students should first email the LSPR S2 Online Program Helpdesk at Lsprs2@harukaedu.com
