(10% of the Course Grade) Though this category gets a relatively small amount of the overall course credit, it is actually quite important. The low percentage reflects my inability to monitor you well while I'm also conducting the class session and to have both imperfect perception and failing memory regarding the value of your own participation. We will try to do something to monitor overall class participation to encourage everyone to participate well, where you participate in the monitoring, but on an individual level I'm afraid we'll come up a bit short. Do note that this category also includes online participation, as you make comments on the work of other students or likewise on the class Web site.
I retired in summer 2010. Before that I was CIO and Associate Dean for eLearning in the College of Business and an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. I've done some teaching since I retired.
