This course has an electronic blog. Participation on Moodle is integral part of this class. 

Any questions about the course should be posted under administration. 

Your Moodle grade will be based on whether your postings tended to

  •  identify important points,
  • clarify difficult concepts, and
  •  generally try to facilitate each others understanding.

You are expected to post one comment/question about the class.  The question should NOT be factual based. That is, it should not be asking for answer that can be answered with a fact or  a clear statement of law but should instead be a question that will stimulate discussion about different perspective, values and assumptions and uncertainty about the what the law should be.   The  comment should be brief on the  (about 50 words or less) and note any confusing points and questions. 

After class you should respond  to at least one other persons comment/reading.

You should also post information or news about health care and health care.

Participation includes these postings. 

However, more points will be given for responding to posting, particularly answering questions.


General Guidelines
(Subject to modification without notice)

  1. Writing a post includes posting an original post and/or responding to one.  Responding to a post counts as much as posting an original one.
  2. The post must be substantial. Superficial, agree or disagree post or discounted or not counted at all.
  3. You earn points for reading a post, but the number of points count as a lower percentage of the total score than if you write or respond to a post
  4. Moodle activity is always evaluated in the week of assignment.  So, for example, the only Moodle activity that will count in an upcoming week will be that which occurs in that week.  And, to a lesser value, in the In The News Section. except if a conversation continues to be active those conversations will be counted. Specifically, back reading old post will not count.
  5. Posting, responding, and reading posts in the In The News section always counts less than activity in the section currently assigned..
