Washington Center Courses - Fall 2009
2 • Academic Course Handbook & Schedule
Welcome to the Washington Center
A message from Senior Vice President, Eugene Alpert On behalf of The Washington Center, the academic affairs staff welcomes you to Washington and to one of the most important experiences you will have in your life. The Washington Center experience will impact you significantly, probably in ways in which you cannot even imagine at this early point in your program. Over the past three decades, The Washington Center has become a recognized leader in the field of experiential learning by working with a diverse group of students who have diverse goals for their internship in the nation’s capital. Trust us to provide you with a framework for learning and contributing that will help you make the most of your experience in Washington, D.C. While the internship may be your primary focus, the academic courses offered by The Washington Center have been a long-standing tradition as an integral component of the overall experience. We have found that interns need time to unwind after work in a familiar classroom setting with their peers and a professor who is an expert in a particular field of interest. Though the day at work may be long, the courses provide an opportunity to gather one’s thoughts about important topics and experiences that may have occurred during the previous week or they allow you to speak your mind, debate or reflect upon some of the important issues of the day. Your internship course will help put the experience you are having in Washington in context. We want you to connect your professional activities with the academic rigor you expect from your own campus, keeping in mind the unique access you have to the resources of Washington, D.C. We encourage the faculty to break up the format of the classes and allow for considerable interaction such that active learning can occur. Some courses are highly structured, while others expect you to take more of the initiative, based on your particular learning goals and objectives. The program therefore recognizes that students have different learning styles and seeks to accommodate students from diverse backgrounds by having instructors who have diverse backgrounds and experiences themselves. They are a great resource for you during your time in Washington. So enjoy your course, learn as much as you can, and reflect upon the full experience you will be having in Washington, D.C. Sincerely,
Eugene J. Alpert, Ph.D. Senior Vice President

About tHe Courses
Students have until Monday, August 10, 2009 at 5:00 pm Eastern Time to drop or add a course using the appropriate form found on the Accepted Students’ website or via email (must be in writing). Direct your drop/add requests to email@example.com. Faculty members are not permitted to add students to their courses. Only TWC academic staff can make changes to the course roster. Students may enroll in a second course in order to obtain additional credit from their home institution. Students in the Postgraduate Professional Development Program (PPDP) may enroll in a course only if space is available. Such students should identify themselves to the instructor and are expected to fully participate in each and every class period and turn in assigned work. Please download form number 12 on the Accepted student’s webpage, the PPDP Course Enrollment Form, complete and submit or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org beginning Tuesday, September 8. All requests must be in writing. Please note that the available list of courses that have space available will change each day, so we advise you to give us a ranked list of your course preferences so we can place you in a course as space warrants.
Course Materials and Fees
As stated in the course description document on our Accepted Students’ website, you should be prepared to cover the cost of any books, handouts, DVDs or any other reading material required for the course. Cost of course materials is the sole responsibility of the student. The cost usually ranges between $60-$80, and some courses may have additional fees for admission to performances, special events, dinners, etc. If this is the case, instructors should inform you on the first day of class. If you are not in attendance on the first day, it is your responsibility to inquire about the possible need for course materials or additional expenses. Some faculty have prepared course packets that are required reading for the course. You may be required to purchase such a packet. Since the cost of the packet depends on the number of students in the class, you will be informed of the cost if you are still registered in the course and you are responsible for paying for the packet. Checks or money orders are the only acceptable form of payment and should be made out and sent to The Washington Center. Faculty members are not authorized to accept money from students for course materials. If cost is a major concern, please contact the course coordinator, email@example.com and inquire in advance about the fees or book expenses for a particular course.

Johns Hopkins-Washington Center Collaboration Courses
A limited number of qualified students may have been accepted into a Johns Hopkins University graduate course. These courses are offered at the Johns Hopkins University Bernstein Office Building at 1717 Massachusetts Avenue, N.W. The Bernstein Office Building also serves as the administrative office for Advanced Academic Programs. Admissions, Registration, Online, Information Technology, and Outreach staff are located at this center just two blocks south of Dupont Circle accessible by Metro. The center includes a Library Resource Center, faculty and student lounges, a large administrative/program management suite for faculty and staff, 16 classrooms or seminar rooms, two computer labs, and a large presentation room. Guests, faculty, staff, and students must sign in at the security guard’s desk in the lobby, or show a university ID. On the first night of class, there will be a sign posting the course locations for that evening. The Bernstein Building is located one block east of the Dupont Circle Metro station (Red Line) on Massachusetts Ave. Students enrolled in a JHU are required to attend 2 JHU-sponsored lectures and to write about them according to JHU requirements. The Washington Center PLS speakers may serve as a substitute. These JHU lectures are open to JHU-The Washington Center students and guests. For more information, please visit the JHU master of arts in government and master of arts in communication website at: http://advanced.jhu.edu/academic/ A student who has been selected to attend a JHU course must follow JHU rules and regulations regarding their courses and course procedures. Questions may be directed to The Washington Center course coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note that the tuition for the course is covered by a student’s Washington Center program fee. Books and other class expenses are the responsibility of the student.

Course And GrAdinG PoliCies
Each course meets once a week for up to three hours unless otherwise specified. Faculty may choose to extend their class periods to make up for a canceled class or may reschedule the class for another night. In some cases, the classroom may be reserved for another function during the term; therefore TWC will notify the instructor in advance and appropriate arrangements to accommodate the class will be made.
Class meeting times
All courses begin at 6:30pm. Some classes may be able to meet earlier, 6:00 or 6:15, if everyone in the course finds this change convenient and the management of the location can accommodate an earlier start.
Class attendance is mandatory and is taken at each session. TWC is notified if a student misses two classes without explanation. If you are unable to attend class for a reason beyond your control, you must contact your instructor either in advance or soon after the missed class ends. We recognize that internship events in the evening may conflict with your course schedule; and we advise you to consult you internship supervisor and professor to determine if a conflict is likely. If frequent conflicts will affect your grade, you may choose to change your course or make an arrangement with your instructor. However, faculty members are not allowed to excuse a student because of such a scheduling conflict. Thus, please be sure to consult with your agency supervisor to determine if you need to change your course to avoid these conflicts, and keep in mind that you may only change your course during the drop and add period.
Students Receiving Financial Aid
Students receiving a guaranteed financial assistance award must complete the course to which they are assigned with a grade of “C” or better to receive the award. Note: Students with a grade of less than a “C” in either the internship or the course forfeit any guaranteed financial assistance and their invoice is adjusted accordingly.
Students with special needs should inform The Washington Center’s disability coordinator prior to arrival so we can make the necessary preparations. Email us at email@example.com for more information.
Academic Course Handbook & Schedule • 7
Students who are graduating prior to the end of the term or quarter may need to request an early grade. These students must complete the Early Grade Request form and have it signed by their campus liaison and returned to the Washington Center by the due date. A copy of this form is available on the Accepted Student website. The form requires the signature of the student’s campus liaison or faculty sponsor. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that our enrollment services office receives the form on time. Also, be sure to alert the instructor with sufficient notice so the timing of assignments and a final grade can be planned accordingly. The Early Grade option depends fully upon the student. Please plan accordingly and coordinate with your course professor. Failure to do so may result in lost financial aid, delayed enrollment, or delayed graduation.
TWC strongly discourages students to request a grade of “I” (incomplete). However, if a student is unable to complete all assignments as a result of unforeseen circumstances (i.e. unexpected internship travel, extended illness, etc.), then a written agreement between the student and instructor must be submitted with the final grade sheet. Incomplete agreements should include a final completion date that is no longer than six weeks past the end of the term/semester. A copy of such an agreement must be on file with the course coordinator for us to accept a temporary grade of “I.” Important Note Students with outstanding balances have their grades withheld until their balance is paid. Reminder notices are not sent. Regardless of who is billed for the program or housing fees, it is the responsibility of the student to ensure proper payment reaches The Washington Center.
Course Numbers and Levels
Courses are created to appeal to students who have at least two years of general education and the courses generally avoid prerequisites. Courses listed at the 3000 level are mostly introductory or of general interest. The 4000 level courses are more in-depth, while 5000 level courses are for more advanced students with specific interests. Courses that end in the number 3 are specifically designed to be worthy of 3 academic credit hours.
8 • Academic Course Handbook & Schedule
Faculty members prepare a written midterm and final evaluation of each student’s progress, which are sent to the student’s campus liaison. Students are asked to provide a midterm and final evaluation of the course and instructor. These written evaluations are administrated by the course coordinator and distributed during class. Midterm evaluations are summarized before they are sent to the instructor, so that student’s feedback can remain anonymous. The final evaluation forms are copied and sent to the faculty only after all grades have been submitted. Your reflective feedback on our courses and faculty is very important to us.
Please note that as a matter of policy, smoking, the consumption of alcoholic beverages, or eating are prohibited in classrooms and during class time. Students are advised to eat dinner prior to class and are welcome to enjoy our outdoor patio or student lounge if using the Academic Center. Students are responsible for their own computer access and library facilities. Please plan accordingly.
The Washington Center program is an academic program within a professional context, and Washington is a professional city. We therefore strongly encourage you to dress professionally or appropriately at all programming events. For your courses, you should avoid shorts, jeans, short skirts, tank tops, flip flops, T-shirts or other overly casual attire. This is not only out of deference to your classmates who may be coming directly from their worksite, but also to others who see you at the classroom location, whether it is The Washington Center’s offices, a local university or a hotel. While you are in our program, you represent not only yourself, but also the Washington Center and your home institution. You are never really “off duty” during weekdays in Washington.
The Washington Center seeks to further students’ educational and career goals. Since academic credit is usually available for our programs, we offer a quality experience for students to develop their intellectual, professional, civic and social skills. We expect students to take personal responsibility for their education, and therefore to submit original reports, essays and evaluations, as required. Timeliness and reliability are also required of their participation in all program components. Whether students are at their placement, course, a speaker series, a lecture, a site visit, or involved in other academic components, students are representatives of The Washington Center and their college or university, and are expected to act ethically and with the highest
Academic Course Handbook & Schedule • 9
degree of professionalism. Students are expected to fulfill all academic requirements outlined by program advisors, agency supervisors, associate faculty members, and program coordinators. Students are expected to follow the work schedule of other employees at their placement, not of their college or university or The Washington Center. Interns are expected to notify The Washington Center if they will miss work for more than two consecutive days due to illness or other causes and to receive appropriate permission. Students also need to notify TWC of any early departure at the end of an internship semester or term. If a student will not be attending the last class of the semester or term, they must receive proper permission from their program advisor, campus liaison, and course instructor. Students should take the responsibility to keep their liaison informed of any missed days of work. Incidents of misconduct may be reflected in a student’s final evaluation or grade and will be reported to the campus liaison or other college officials. This may result in expulsion from The Washington Center’s Internship Program or Academic Seminar and will be maintained in a permanent file.
Academic misconduct includes but is not limited to the following acts:
• Plagiarism: Plagiarism is a form of academic misconduct and is considered academic theft. Plagiarism occurs when someone copies or takes the intellectual work of another as one’s own, and fails to properly reference or provide attribution to the original author of the work. At The Washington Center, students are expected to submit original evaluations, essays, papers, and demonstrations, and to cite all appropriate sources of material that influences the work or contributes to its end. If requested, students should be prepared to provide original notes, previous drafts, or other materials to indicate original research or intellectual ownership of an assignment. If the thought, diagram, image, table, paper, photograph, or text is not original, meaning it did not originate from your own thinking or artistry, you must provide citation. If you are in doubt as to how to attribute the words and work of others, please be sure to consult your instructor! • Cheating: The use of notes, books, or electronic devices when prohibited, the assistance of another student while completing a quiz or an exam, or the providing of information to another individual for this purpose, unless such collaboration is suggested by the course instructor. • Falsification: The improper alteration of any record, document or evaluation.
10 • Academic Course Handbook & Schedule
• Obstruction: Behaving in a disruptive manner or participating in activities that interfere with the educational mission of The Washington Center at lectures, courses, meetings or other sponsored events. • Absenteeism: The chronic failure to attend program components (including the internship, internship courses, or other scheduled activities) without a valid reason or prior notification. • Any other act of academic dishonesty. The Washington Center reserves the right to impose additional penalties, including expulsion from the program. A hearing regarding these charges may be held at the request of the student. Since The Washington Center does not grant academic credit, the grade received in a course is only a recommended grade sent to the student’s campus liaison. Thus, additional avenues of appeal may be available to a student on the home campus, depending upon how the campus liaison interprets The Washington Center’s associate faculty member’s grade. In all academic matters, the director of academic affairs is the final arbiter regarding the responsibilities of The Washington Center in these matters.
If students have a problem with the instructor, the course material, class format, or other aspects of the course, they should speak with the instructor first. If speaking with the instructor is not a possible course of action, or if students choose otherwise, students should speak with the course coordinator who will arrange a conference in consultation with the director of Academic Affairs. If students wish to make a formal complaint, they must submit it in writing to the course coordinator, who will then advise the senior vice president who will be responsible to take appropriate action.
