I am in the process of writing a policy manual for our professional development and training business. Covering such topics as attendance, plagiarism, participation, faculty and student responsiveness, student conduct, etc - I'm wondering if any other CLE organization has such a document? We would like to provide clear information to attendees, particularly of multi-day or multi-program curriculum, of the expectations governing participation in our programs.
I've been studying other manuals available online - the volume of information now available is terrific! Most universities and colleges have their student manuals posted, which has been very helpful. Obviously requiring refinement as our audience is quite different than those of a college, I've been able to identify, at a minimum, the types of categories that should be included in the manual.
Call me crazy, but I've actually been enjoying the project! It has been some time since I've had to wordsmith a policy document.
I would love to hear back from you if your organization has a Student and/or Academic Policy Manual.
