Thursday, November 22nd to inform us that you will need to write the make-up
Reviewing Your Tests
The tests and exams for PSY100 are restricted, meaning that you will not be able to keep
your test or answer papers. You are strongly encouraged, however, to review your test, in
order to see which questions you you got correct, and more importantly, which questions
tripped you up. Test review sessions will be held after the grades have been posted for
each test. Please check Quercus and listen in class for announcements about when and
where to review your tests. If you cannot make any of the scheduled test review sessions,
you may send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to make alternative arrangements.
Please be respectful of your classmates, myself, and any classroom guests by behaving in
an appropriate manner during class. This includes refraining from carrying on
conversations during class, arriving on time, and not behaving in any other way that may
be distracting to those around you (e.g., texting, taking photos, playing games, checking
social media, etc.). If you don’t want to pay attention to the lecture, that’s your choice.
But impeding someone else’s learning experience is absolutely unacceptable.
Cellphone and laptop usage. Technology can support student learning, but it can also
become a distraction. Research indicates that multi-tasking (texting, surfing the Internet,
using social networks) during class time can have a negative impact on learning (Clapp,
Rubens, Sabharwal & Gazzaley, 2011; Ellis, Daniels, Jauregui, 2010; Hembrooke & Gay,
2003). Out of respect for your fellow learners in this class, please refrain from using
laptops or mobile phones for entertainment during class and do not display any material
on a laptop which may be distracting or offensive to your fellow students. Laptops may
be used only for legitimate classroom purposes, such as taking notes, downloading course
information from Portal, or working on an assigned in-class exercise. Checking social
media, email, texting, games, and surfing the Web are not legitimate classroom purposes.
Such inappropriate laptop and mobile phone use is distracting to those seated around you.
Harassment/Discrimination. The University of Toronto is a richly diverse community
and as such is committed to providing an environment free of any form of harassment,
misconduct, or discrimination. In this course, I seek to foster a civil, respectful, and open-
minded climate in which we can all work together to develop a better understanding of
key questions and debates through meaningful dialogue. As such, I expect all involved
with this course to refrain from actions or behaviours that intimidate, humiliate, or
demean persons or groups or that undermine their security or self-esteem based on traits
related to race, religion, ancestry, place of origin, colour, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed,
sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, marital status, family
status, disability, receipt of public assistance or record of offences.
