Summer 2021 - PHIL 478 D100
Honours Tutorial II (5)
Class Number: 4056
Delivery Method: In Person
Course Times + Location:
REMOTE LEARNING, Burnaby
Prerequisites:PHIL 478 is a requisite for all honours students. It must be taken concurrently with or consecutively to PHIL 477.
At least eight weeks prior to the term in which they wish to enrol in PHIL 478, honours students should arrange for faculty supervision of the course and arrange for departmental approval of a proposed syllabus. Open only to honours students.
Tutorials offer sufficient time to examine in-depth several philosophical topics in a general area such as ethics, metaphysics, philosophy of mind, etc.
You must be officially enrolled in the honours program in order to take the honours tutorials I and II. Both PHIL 477 and 478 are required for successful completion of the honours program.
Before enrolling, an honours student must prepare, in consultation with the proposed faculty supervisor, a document (normally one page or less) summarizing the topic and content of the tutorial and submit it to the Undergraduate Curriculum Chair for approval. Tutorials are usually approved only after the student is prepared for rigorous independent study by having completed sufficient upper-division coursework. Though possible, we highly recommend that you do not take PHIL 477 and 478 in the same term.
IMPORTANT STEP: Once approval is granted, student should forward it to the department manager at firstname.lastname@example.org with the enrollment request.
The honours candidate must achieve a grade of B or higher in each honours tutorial to receive the honours degree.

ACADEMIC INTEGRITY: YOUR WORK, YOUR SUCCESS
SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s10-01.html
TEACHING AT SFU IN SUMMER 2021
Teaching at SFU in summer 2021 will be conducted primarily through remote methods, but we will continue to have in-person experiential activities for a selection of courses. Such course components will be clearly identified at registration, as will course components that will be “live” (synchronous) vs. at your own pace (asynchronous). Enrollment acknowledges that remote study may entail different modes of learning, interaction with your instructor, and ways of getting feedback on your work than may be the case for in-person classes. To ensure you can access all course materials, we recommend you have access to a computer with a microphone and camera, and the internet. In some cases your instructor may use Zoom or other means requiring a camera and microphone to invigilate exams. If proctoring software will be used, this will be confirmed in the first week of class.Students with hidden or visible disabilities who believe they may need class or exam accommodations, including in the current context of remote learning, are encouraged to register with the SFU Centre for Accessible Learning (firstname.lastname@example.org or 778-782-3112).
