GENERAL COURSE GUIDELINES
FOR ALL COURSES TAUGHT BY ELLIS GODARD

You will complete and return an initial information form in each course: a First Day Questionnaire in 364 or 497; a Site Declaration Form in 498; emailed info in 250, 304, and 434. By submitting that form and the information on it, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to abide by the following "general course guidelines", which detail my expectations regarding your responsibilities and which apply to all courses I teach. They exist to ensure fairness through clarity, and are direct and firm in order to deter abuse.

Please note that the CSU faculty union is in the midst of contract negotiations and that the CSU is facing two mid-year budget adjustments. As such, there is a possibility of a work interruption and changes in schedule beyond the instructor’s control. Updates on this situation will be provided throughout the term, and the current course schedule is always available via Moodle.
