Class Etiquette & Netiquette
Add expectations for class etiquette and netiquette.
Add attendance/participation policy. With online instruction the focus is on class participation, which depends on the structure of your course. For example, if you are offering synchronous classroom experiences (Zoom, Blackboard Collaborate, etc.) it would be participation in these meetings. For asynchronous courses, it is participation by the deadlines stated in your syllabus. As technology can be fickle, and life is far from normal, please exercise both compassion and common sense.
Academic Integrity Policy
Students and all others who work with information, ideas, texts, images, music, inventions and other intellectual property owe their audience and sources accuracy and honesty in using, crediting and citation of sources. As a community of intellectual and professional workers, the college recognizes its responsibility for providing instruction in information literacy and academic integrity, offering models of good practice, and responding vigilantly and appropriately to infractions of academic integrity. Accordingly, academic dishonesty is prohibited in The City University of New York and is punishable by penalties, including failing grades, suspension and expulsion.
