keys to a successful online learning experience Please don t hesitate to contact me about any questions or problems The easiest way to reach me is by email I check it often and will try to return any message within 23 days I actually am able to reply sooner if the message is left during the work week I occasionally go away for weekends or conferences during the semester I will communicate with you in three ways email the Announcements section on the home page and the Discussion Board on the blackboard Be sure to check your ISU email the discussion board and the Announcements section every 12 days We have been asked to use only the ISU email to minimize problems with viruses worms etc I will send out emails through the semester by the ISU email CHECK YOUR ISU EMAIL AT LEAST EVERY OTHER DAY I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE IF YOU MISS IMPORTANT MESSAGES BECAUSE YOU HAVE NOT CHECKED YOUR EMAIL Another key to success in this course is timely submission of assignments Assignments each have an OPEN and a CLOSE date Assignments will not be available to you after the close date Be sure to submit assignments through the assignment link on or before due dates unless you have made prior arrangements in writing with the professor Assignments submitted after the due date deadline will be given a grade of zero unless PRIOR arrangements have been made with the instructor All assignments must be submitted to pass the course even if points are not given due to missing the due date All assignment are due by INDIANA TIME or EST I have students from all over the United States and sometimes even other countries The only way to keep track of deadlines is to make the deadline on for the time zone of ISU which is Indiana or EST This may not seem fair if you live in California but there has to be a cut off somewhere My suggestion is for you to make your deadline a day earlier if you are afraid you will miss it because you are in a different time zone Submit assignments via the Assignments link DO NOT EVER USE THE DIGITAL DROP BOX TO SUBMIT ANY ASSIGNMENTS IN THIS COURSE Be sure to follow the directions completely Click send as your last step Otherwise it will appear that you have sent it on

POLICY Unsafe practice includes those behaviors which may endanger a client family member staff peer or faculty in the physiological psychological spiritual or cultural realm Speci c behaviors of
