  2. 2. 2 Readings Many readings for this class are posted in the blackboard and in the form of links. Use Blackboard to access the information and your NIU e-mail for participation and information. The announcement section on Blackboard needs to be checked for weekly postings and class activities. Format This will be a seminar-format class. Participants will be required to prepare for class by completing the assigned readings, class presentations, developing and sharing information over the internet and using e-mail to exchange information. The class will draw on the experiences of the participants and utilize case studies. Participants will be required to actively participate in the class discussion. Class Decorum Mutual respect; safe zone; zero tolerance; no bullying; don’t share any information you do not want to; no put downs; no invectives; no expletives; use inclusive & non- sexist language; two tardies equal one absence; remain in class for the entire session or else be considered absent; be polite; alright to disagree but do not attack the person; no sleeping; turn off *all* electronic devices; no cell phones; no laptop computer; no distracting side conversations; no Sudoku, crossword puzzle, and other games allowed; no MP3 players; no texting; no reading of newspaper, magazines or any other reading materials not used in this class; no sit-ins; no babies and children in the classroom. If the university permits, food & drinks are allowed but please clean up after yourselves. Everyone has an equal chance to speak out around the table; hence, no ―super nova,‖ no ―ping pong,‖ and no ―popcorn.‖ Don't Miss the Forest for the Trees Reading materials both answer and raise questions. The professor will not have all the answers. This course will *not* describe in full details historical and current events, recording facts, figures, days and dates during which certain events took place. You will *not* be committed to memorizing facts and figures, which you will soon forget after the academic term ends. We will attempt to see the bigger picture and not get caught up in the minute details. Students will be exposed to analytical framework, theories, and concepts which will help you develop your own answers and which you will remember long after you leave the university. Class Requirements  Active participation in class discussions will be expected. Both attendance and class participation will count towards the final course grades. Some sessions will be online (class cancellations and TBA) during which online participation is required: at least one substantive input and at least one substantive feedback.  Please read and download the weekly short reading before the class as required for class discussion. Course Project 1 of 3 There are three projects to complete in this class: (1) a short video project, (2) article/s or chapter/s project, and (3) a major research paper project. Short video project a) In the short project, research and select a short video that discusses issues presented in this class. Present the video to the class and discuss the issues that the video is showing. Example: in previous class a student selected a short video by Green Peace (about 10 minutes) that discussed climate change and the effect in the economy and life in a coastal village of Brazil. b) In the class discussion relate the video to education and adult higher education in particular. c) The video that you search and present does not need to be about a problem (like the previous one) but it can be about solutions found to poverty, educational innovations, literacy worldwide and in general the topics described for this class. Since this class is about international issues in
  3. 3. 3 education, the video cannot be about a community or situations in the United States. d) Videos should be short, about 10minutes total. e) A one-page summary describing, reviewing, & critiquing the video is also required. f) You will need to send me the link to the video to post it on blackboard at least with 36 hours of anticipation. (Do not send it five minutes before the class). g) Video presentations and lead discussions will be based on alphabetical order of your last names. You will need to sign in the first class to set the date for presenting & discussing your video. Provide guide questions to lead the discussion. h) Clarifications about this assignment will be done in the first class. i) Due on the date of scheduled presentations throughout the semester. Course Project 2 of 3 For thematic presentations of articles and chapters as well as lead discussions, pick the reading materials on the list in the syllabus or discuss with me if you want to use other materials, making sure you email the materials or the links or both to everyone in class at least one week prior to your presentation so that everyone has enough time to read them. On day one, fill out the sign-up sheet for scheduling your presentations. Class Participation The professor acts as a facilitator. As students are responsible for active learning and participation, they must come to class having read the reading materials. On the day of your presentations, each student will lead team-building activities at the start of each class session. You have to come to class having done the reading in advance and to participate actively and substantively in discussion. Questions to guide you in your readings & other educational materials: (a) What are the central problems, debates, questions, key argument, and evidence for the arguments? (b) What are the problems with the argument? What are your counter-arguments? How did this reading material or other education material compare to other materials? What questions were raised? Limitations? (c) Your recommendations? Course Project 3 of 3 Major research paper Participants will be required to undertake a major course project related to international adult education or higher education but not necessarily to the topics or issues covered in class. Rubric for peer evaluation will be discussed and is available online. a) a major research paper b) a class presentation of about 15 minutes, including Q&A. Students will present their work on a Power Point file. See, use, & modify template as necessary. c) submit and present the final paper in an international conference, if at all possible. d) have IRB form approved and consent forms signed, if conducting original research involving interviews, etc. Sample here at https://tinyurl.com/lqruu6x Deadline: Paper due on April 24 2014 Sample Topics for Research Paper Examples of international issues for the research paper are: 1.

Background, issues and follow up of CONFINTEA VI: Information on CONFINTEA VI is founded on the UNESCO web page. Absence and Dropping Policy Mandatory attendance. You may be excused from class for religious observances but I need to have at least 48-hour notice. Two absences result in a letter grade deduction, significantly lowering your final grade, for example, from A (no absence) to B (absence). Three unexcused absences amount to failing the course. In terms of dropping from the course due to absences, we will follow the university’s policy, for which the students are responsible. You are responsible for dropping from this class by the official deadline date. Personal and Family Emergencies Absence due to personal medical reasons and death in the immediate family are the only valid excuses. Please bring medical certification or death certification, respectively. Let me know of your personal and family emergencies so that you may be excused from some of the class policies. A note from the hospital, for example, duly signed by the authorities must be submitted to me. The professor is not responsible for the matters you have missed due to your absence: you are. Withdrawal Policy The student is responsible for keeping track of the university’s withdrawal deadline. If you choose to stop attending class you are responsible for withdrawing from the course. I will not do so for you. If you stop attending and have not withdrawn, a failing grade will be entered. Submission Late submission is not accepted and gets zero (0) point for that specific requirement. Standards- Based Holistic Grading Policy An ―A‖ indicates an excellent and exceptional performance. This grade is reserved for students whose work demonstrates an extra-ordinary level of competence and distinction. A perfect attendance record is a necessary but not sufficient criterion of excellence. A student who regularly or always reads all the assigned materials before
  5. 5. 5 class meetings and volunteers critical comments and engages critically in dialogues, will meet this standard. ―B‖ is assigned to a satisfactory performance of an assigned task. This grade indicates that no new insight has been added, and that the student’s performance is above average. ―C‖ indicates an average performance by a student. This grade usually indicates that a student barely met the requirements of a task and needs to work harder. Very few students get a ―D‖, which indicates a less than satisfactory (i.e. below average) performance of tasks, and even fewer students obtain an ―F‖, which indicates a failure to perform up to the minimum level of expectation. Pluses (+) and minuses (-) are used to indicate better or lesser performance levels between the grades. Students whose performance falls consistently at or below ―C‖ average should contact me early on to find ways of addressing possible problems of comprehension, interpretation, and writing.
