RPED 251 Course Guidelines Please review the course guidelines in the RPED 250/251 Instructor Guide (revised 13 January 2013) when composing the course syllabus and prior to your first class. (Handout given at meeting)RPED 250/251 Instructor Guide Revisions (from 20 August 2103) Page 1 – Change in wording of Introduction to include RPED 251 Course information. Page 1 – Information and Course Description of RPED 251, including textbook information. Page 6 – Under Additional Course Policies, Evaluation, Section (E) : “Try to refrain from grading on participation, unless you are awarding “all or nothing” of the possible point values. It is difficult, if not impossible, to objectively score levels of participation or effort, and this may promote student objections to your grading policy. Instead, develop methods of objectively measuring outcomes from the participation. For example, in RPED 251, you may elect to have students develop written exercise prescription based on the outcome of their participation in the fitness testing.”

Page 8,9 – Under Instructor Evaluation, Informal Classroom Observation: “The course coordinator may make informal visitations to your classroom to observe the classroom activity. The purpose of the visitation is not for evaluation or critique, but to solely for the coordinator to observe and learn about the different classroom activities that are occurring in the various sections of the course. These visitations will help the program coordinator generate new ideas for the teaching curriculum, and identify teaching methods that may be helpful to other instructors. The program coordinator will contact you by e-mail to schedule the informal classroom visitation. Likewise, you may request a specific time and date, by e-mail. At the beginning of the academic school year, you should e-mail the program coordinator to meet with you class (RPED 250) for a short introduction (5-10 minutes).” Each instructor should also follow the guidelines set forth in the Adjunct Faculty Manual (web link)web link
