The course will provide historical and contemporary introduction to the laws and policies related to intellectual property, First Amendment, cultural property, human resource management, labor relations, immigration and cultural exchange, and contract development and enforcement.
Graduate courses are taught online exclusively. Faculty may be located anywhere with a high-speed internet connection. Compensation for teaching is based on student enrollment. Typical enrollment is 15 students.
The course content and all assignments have been developed in full and are already built into the learning management system, Canvas. The part-instructor will teach the course that has been developed. All course instructors complete a faculty orientation held prior to the semester start date.
