Course Schedule - Community Policing

Published onAug 07, 2020
Course Schedule - Community Policing
·

I am considerate but demanding of your time. A full-time student should spend as much time learning as a full-time worker spends working: 40 hours per week, at least.1 I use that premise to determine how much to ask of you for this course.

Time Expectations

Fall and Spring Semesters

During fall and spring semesters, a full credit load is officially 12 credit hours, but I’m “old school” so I consider it 15 hours. This course is 3 credit hours, or 1/5 of the full load. If you divide 40 hours by 5, you get 8. Thus, I expect you to spend 8 hours per week on this course.2 I expect you to spend about this much time per section on average on each of the following:

  • 4 hours for COPS Training Course

  • 6 hours for reading

  • 3 hours for Annotation

  • 3 hours for creating your Infoposter

Sections

There are eight sections in this course; two weeks per section for a total of 16 weeks. Each section has the same assignment types: COPS training courses; Infoposters; and Annotations:

  • In fall and spring semesters, those are due at 11:59 pm every other Sunday.

  • In summer semesters, those are due at 11:59 pm every Sunday.
