Description of course Managerial Accounting : CRN: 21741 4 Credit Hours
This section of ACCT 215 (Managerial Accounting) is being offered in a blended format. The course will meet face to face (F2F) 50% of time relative to a traditional class schedule. The F2F class sessions will combine active learning activities with a traditional lecture format on the scheduled class days. The online component of the course involves self-directed learning activities assigned by the instructor. These activities will be completed on students’ own time and in accordance with the assignment due dates. These assignments will include, but are not limited to, online homework, quizzes and tests as discussion board assignments and critical thinking assignments. This class format will offer students flexibility in completing assigned coursework. However, strong time management skills will be essential for success. Required class meetings days are every Monday from 3:25 - 5pm. While regular attendance of class sessions is expected of all students, students should not and cannot miss any on-campus classes in a blended format course without prior instructor approval. Prerequisite: ACCT 210
