Attendance Policies

Attendance and participation in this course are required. As the course requires active and involved participation, students who are tardy or absent will be penalized.

Yes, attendance penalties apply to the first few weeks of class when some folks are still undergoing Drop-Add so if you join a class late, you still need to make up the points for the classes you may have missed.

Attendance is taken regularly and penalties are applied towards the Final Grade for the Semester. If you come late to class, you must inform the instructor or you may be counted as absent.

Attendance-Related Penalties are as follows:

  • Tardy, -1 grade point
  • Tardy in Second Hour, -2 grade point
  • Unexcused Absence, -3 grade points
  • Three Unexcused Absences, not allowed to take final exam and zero points for final project
  • Five Absences, automatically fail course (please note that this includes Excused and Unexcused Absences in accordance with university guidelines.

  • Missed Appointment, if you make an appointment to see Dr. Phillips in his office and do not show, -1 grade point; if you do not contact Dr. Phillips and let him know you are missing the appointment by email at least twenty-four hours prior to the appointment or by phone within twenty-four hours, an additional -1 grade point. Failure to contact the instructor within one day before or after is an additional -1 grade point.

  • Late Homework, please take note that late homework acquires a grade penalty for each day late and that no homework is accepted one week past the due date.

Excused absences are only those that fall within the university parameters of official activity and illness and family emergency (you MUST give me the official paperwork, JUST "TELLING" ME IS NOT ENOUGH - students are responsible for dotting their i's and crossing their t's for policy adherance, the instructor will NOT remind you).

If you have a family emergency or illness then family and health always come first, but YOU must contact the teacher directly and you must arrange makeups when possible (talk to the instructor about this - although for emergencies like a death in the family, I will normally work with the student as a special circumstance, however you must discuss it with me ). This is your responsibility.

Absences are NOT excused unless you provide an official excuse form issued by the school with detailed reasons.

Please note that in addition to attendance grades, students typically receive daily participation points for most class sessions. These are usually within a range of five to ten assignment points per session. Students who miss class do not receive participation points, regardless of whether an absence is excused or not.

Also, remember . . . for my classes . . . if there are any presentations, scheduled activities, interactive drama or similar type activities then those days are normally counted as DOUBLE ATTENDANCE DAYS . . . this means an absence or tardy counts twice as much . . . if you leave a class early without permission, it may count as an absence. Activities, interactive dramas, or special events that involve participation with other classes, are always DOUBLE ATTENDANCE DAYS.

In my class, when other students need your participation (interactive drama, speeches, debate, panel discussion, etc.), then attendance counts double what it normally would. This is in addition to any participation or assignment points lost by non-attendance. So, if you have a scheduled debate or speech these are also double attendance days. If in doubt, ask.

If at any time, you wish to check your Attendance or Assignment records, ask the instructor. As far as class points go, do keep in mind when monitoring your raw points in progress that participation points are awarded periodically rather than sequentially and that final grades are figured on a curve before applying penalty points.

If you miss a class, YOU are responsible for getting any missed assignments, readings, or other materials from your classmates. The instructor is NOT responsible for helping you catch up, you are. This includes missed media presentations, if a student misses a class session in which media such as video or DVD is presented, the student is responsible for finding a copy of the material for review. The instructor will NOT provide his copy of the material to students who missed class.



Extra Credit

For students who wish to makeup for lost points, or who wish to do extra work to help boost their final grade, there are limited extra-credit work options.

No extra-credit project is ever required and is only approved at the instructor's discretion. These projects are here for those wishing to makeup lost points or to enhance their other scores. All extra-credit work is optional and as such some students may find certain projects more interesting to them than others. None of these extra-credit projects are required and as such they may not all reflect the particular nature of a specific course and are usually related to the instructor's research or other interests. There are very limited extra-credit openings and as such are extremely limited in participation so students must make arrangements with the instructor early if they wish to have the opportunity to participate in certain projects.

You may never receive more than ten points of extra credit in any given semester.

Extra-Credit is NOT AVAILABLE within the last two weeks of the semester.

There a number of available extra-credit projects and availability is subject to change:

    Note, the current official list of projects available is uploaded to the files section of the class Facebook group. The list here is for reference only and may not match the actual projects available.

  1. OPTIONAL HYPNOSIS PROJECTS are listed on final page of the extra credit document provided to current sutdents. They are no longer part of the main program of options but are only available upon specific request by those with an interest.

  2. ORIGINAL INFORMATIVE-ACADEMIC LECTURE PRESENTATION, (in English), create an original formal informative or academic speech (TED style or simple "talking head" style presentation - ideally, use a simple or plain background such as a white screen or black screen) on a topic related to the course you are currently enrolled in which Dr. Phillips is the instructor. Depending upon your specific course, general acceptable topics include Communication, Social Influence, Ethics, Literature of the Fantastic, Drama, Cosplay, Live Performance Theatre, Board Gaming, Table Top Roleplaying Games, Collectible Card Games, Comic Books, Fandom, Interactive Drama, LARPing, Standup Comedy, Magic, or related topics (get pre-approval from instructor). This is a formal presentation of your own academic research or criticism and as such must have at least one primary research source and at least three secondary research sources (more is fine). You should hand in the abstract and bibliography with the final video. All video footage must be original and all content must be your own work. The final video must be handed in on disk as 1920x1080p mp4 and will be uploaded to the IOOW channel. Do NOT use music other than from the Youtube creator's library with credits. Final academic lecture/presentations must be 20-30 minutes [three-five points].

  3. PARTICIPATION in a COMEDY HYPNOSIS SHOW as a volunteer [must be selected during performance] [one to two points; maximum 5 points].

  4. ATTENDANCE at a COMEDY HYPNOSIS SHOW with friends [must present photographs of self and friends in front of the venue prior to the performance AND after the performance with Dr. Phillips inside the venue - one point for each five friends in attendance - maximum three points per performance].

  5. SPARKSHOW PARTICIPATION, students who participate in production of the English Department on campus radio programs, the Spark Show, may receive extra credit. [the number of points awarded depends upon the nature of the project presented - maximum five per student].

  6. OCR PROJECT, for those students with access to a scanner and accurate OCR software, they may join the OCR Project. Participating students will be given text from books or articles or the like and will be asked to scan them into text and Word format text. Resulting text must be accurate. Some students may choose to type the text by hand but that is very very inefficient so computer-based OCR is preferred, especially for the return as materials are assigned and expected to be completed within one-to-two weeks of assignment. Assignments are made on a first-come-first-served and only as available basis. [one point for each one hundred pages of accurately scanned and processed text - maximum five per student].

  7. PARTICIPATION IN INTERACTIVE DRAMA by the Taiwan Interactive Theatre Society - see http://www.interactivedramas.info for schedule of upcoming performances (in the Taipei Troupe section of the site). You can join the Taiwan Interactive Theatre Society's public group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/taiwaninteractivedrama. [up to two points per scenario].

  8. ORIGINAL INTERACTIVE DRAMA PERFORMANCE by your own troupe (yes, you may use your friends). Write and produce a costume interactive drama roleplaying scenario for fifteen or more participants and produce the piece with full costume and players. You must turn in your scenario and fifty or more photographs of the event with cast photos and notes - see http://www.interactivedramas.info for example scenarios (in the Scenario Archive section of the site - your scenario should be complex, good model scenarios for style and length would include Fire at Midnight by Frank Branham or And the Moon a Crooked Grin by Scott Beattie). The scenario must be science-fiction, fantasy, or horror and it must require period or unusual costuming. Simple contemporary costuming is not allowed. The Scenario and the photographs will be archived on the website. You can join the Taiwan Interactive Theatre Society's public group at https://www.facebook.com/groups/taiwaninteractivedrama. [up to three points].

  9. As part of the FANTASY WORLD DRAMA PROJECT, there is a list of Discworld plays adapted from the novels of Terry Pratchett further down on this webpage. You may earn up to three points for a critical analysis or review of one of these plays (only one student per play, although you may review more than one play). Students who wish to do an extra credit review or critique of 2500 words or more, should contact Dr. Phillips to confirm that the piece is available. Your review may be:

    • (1) of the play itself, up to one grade point;
    • (2) a comparison of the play and the novel, up to two grade points; or
    • (3) a comparison of the film and the play, up to two grade points.
    • Alternatively, (4) students may choose to organize a filmed or videotaped "performance" of one of the plays - a costume adaptation of thirty-to-forty minutes edited and produced. In such cases students will hand in the original play, their adapted script, and a DVD of their completed video project (DVD quality, not VCD). Such video projects receive up to ten points divided amongst the students in the course who are involved (maximum up to three points per person). There must be a minimum of at least two students from the class involved in the project to receive approval, although students may invite friends or others who are not involved in the class to participate with them.

    For any of the variations of this project, you must provide the instructor with a copy of the original playscript and/or film with your piece (these will not be returned). You may order these through Page One bookstore at Taipei 101 or via the online links on the class webpage - Amazon is usually fine (obviously, sooner is better for such projects). Clear any project with the instructor before beginning work for extra credit. You MUST first contact the instructor as the play titles are limited and only one student per play. If another student has already reserved a title, you may NOT choose it. If you reserve a title for this project, you MUST complete it or face penalties. Due to the popularity of the pieces and their limited nature, this is the only extra credit project with such restrictions and possible penalties (one to twelve group points - maximum three points per person).

  10. Create an original 3D DOCUMENTARY VIDEO or ETHNOGRAPHIC STEREOPHOTOGRAPHIC VIDEO PRESENTATION [two to three points]. Select a topic related to Taiwan culture, history, or mores, and create a 20-25 min. documentary presentation on 3D video - using either video or 3D photographs. You must turn in the raw materials and the finished video project.

  11. Create an original PHOTOGRAPHIC TAROT DECK [two to six points]. You should individually or within a group (groups split points), design a photographic Tarot deck ?see example projects by past students in the archive at http://public.fotki.com/briandavidphillips/hypnosis/tarot/students (go to http://tarotpedia.com/wiki/index.php/Tarot_Decks:_Photographic for a number of examples ?see the links to external webpages ?or take a look at the hundreds of Tarot decks listed at http://www.tarotkorea.co.kr/gallery/list.php and http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot with sample images including the section at http://www.aeclectic.net/tarot/cards/photographic-decks.shtml specifically for photographic Tarot decks - some of the Tarot decks at http://www.moonchild.ch/Tarot/tselfadds.php are photographic as well). Take digital photographs for each card (preferably process them in a photo editor). The design should have a common theme or design consistency (not just random photos) and each image should have a connection to the "meaning" of the card. Be sure to give your Tarot a "name" or "title" that expresses the underlying "theme" of your Tarot deck. Your design must be appropriate to the card's traditional image or the meaning of the card, preferably with costuming and props. You may not simply put random photos together with labels. This is a design by intention project. You should hand in a printed copy of your completed deck ?if you wish to create a distinctive card back to laminate with your images, the finished project will look infinitely better. You will be asked to turn in a CD or DVD with all of the images used for your deck. You need only create a Major Arcana Tarot Deck (without the suits). However, students who choose to create a full Tarot with both Major Arcana and Minor Arcana (suit cards) of the traditional seventy-eight cards will receive additional extra credit points for the project. Groups that create full photographic Animation Tarot style decks (one hundred cards) will receive additional extra credit points for their projects. Please have fun with the project and allow yourself to express your creativity. You should give a hard copy of the deck, spread, and game as well as a CD or DVD of the full resolution images for your final photographic Tarot to the instructor. Selected class projects will be posted to the web. Your CD/DVD should include . . . The formatted photos for your Tarot Deck (the high resolution digital images).
    MAJOR ARCANA PHOTOGRAPHIC TAROT DECK [up to one point], COMPLETE PHOTOGRAPHIC TAROT DECK of both Major and Minor Arcana [up to three points], or ANIMATION PHOTOGRAPHIC TAROT DECK [up to four points]. Those who create stereographic 3D versions of their images will receive up to an additional two points for the finished project.

It is highly advisable to not be in a situation where you need extra-credit as the opportunities are very limited. Come to class and complete assignments on time. If you find yourself needing or wanting Extra Credit points, do NOT wait until the end of the semester as by that time the instructor's time is limited and many projects are no longer available.

Extra Credit is no longer available within the last two weeks of a semester. If you wish to earn extra credit points, you must do so well in advance.

Students may not receive more than ten extra credit points in a single semester.


HYPNOSIS
s e s s i o n s

Dr. Brian David Phillips HYPNOSIS sessions are available.

As I have been asked about this, YES, we used to offer extra credit points for a number of Hypnosis-related project possibilities from being part of a pilot study on hypnosis and language learning to serving as a volunteer trance partner for educational hypnosis demonstration sessions to participating in a comedy hypnosis performance.

However, NO, these projects are no longer generally available as extra credit options. As some students are not comfortable with hypnosis based upon their own mistaken ideas or erroneous religious beliefs regarding the subject, they likewise complained that such optional opportunities were available to others. So, hypnosis is no longer offered as a comprehensively available extra credit option for my courses.

So, those who are curious about the experience or honestly interested in exploring such things for their own personal interest without credit are certainly welcome to contact me privately if they would like to serve as a demonstration trance partner for educational hypnosis sessions.

Students who do wish to pursue an independent extra credit option for hypnotic participation are free to do so by request. In the past, hypnosis projects have included:

  • Serving as single-session or multiple-session volunteer trance partners for video recorded DEMONSTRATIONAL HYPNOSIS SESSIONS which are filmed as part of an ongoing training program [single-sessions at ninety to one-hundred-twenty minutes, typically two to three points of extra-credit per session].

  • Serving as volunteer participant and trance partner for a live HYPNOSIS SEMINAR OR WORKSHOP which are videotaped. This would be to act as a demonstrational subject for the seminar but also as a practice partner for other attendees. Students who choose this option must attend the entire event (typically, one or two full days). Seminar or workshop volunteers must be approved beforehand. When a seminar or workshop is announced, feel free to contact the instructor to arrange a pass to attend [single-sessions, typically three to four points of extra-credit per event, depending upon the nature of the event and the quality of participation].

  • Participating in an on-going study on the use of HYPNOSIS IN LANGUAGE LEARNING [multiple sessions, typically four to five sessions over four weeks, typically five to ten points of extra-credit, maximum ten].

    Participants will be asked to sign permissions slips and release forms for video projects. Participation in these programs are not open to everyone, wouldbe participants must first undergo suggestibility evaluation and should listen to the DRTRC deep relaxation recordings on the main webpages prior to participation. Participation opportunities are very limited so talk to the instructor early to be considered.

Remember, hypnotic extra credit work is NEVER required and is solely an option of those students wishing to participate in such projects.

Additionally, those who are curious about the experience or honestly interested in exploring such things for their own personal interest without credit are certainly welcome to contact me privately if they would like to serve as a demonstration trance partner for educational hypnosis sessions.

It is STRONGLY recommended that students wishing to have an hypnotic experience first prepare themselves by listening to one or more of the deep relaxation hypnotic conditioning files available on the webpages at http://www.briandavidphillips.net . . . the Deep Relaxation file at http://briandavidphillips.net/2001/06/26/fgi01/ is an excellent choice as it is free to download for folks who have free Basic membership in the site and is a solid introduction to relaxation conditioning. Listen to the file at least five or more times in the week prior to making your hypnosis appointment with Dr. Phillips for best results.

Feel free to explore my main webpages at http://www.briandavidphillips.net as well as my extensive blog and resource site at http://briandavidphillips.net/blog for information and more.



Fantasy Drama

These are Discworld plays adapted from the novels of Terry Pratchett. Students who wish to do an extra credit review, should contact Dr. Phillips. You may be able to order these through Page One Bookstore in Taipei 101 or via an online vendor - links to Amazon UK and US online bookstores are included here for those who want them (some titles are not as reliably available from the US stores). If you wish to participate in this project, be certain to give yourself plenty of time for the pieces to arrive from overseas in a timely fashion if you cannot find them in Taiwan.

Alternatively, students may choose to organize a filmed or videotaped "performance" of one of the plays - a costume adaptation of thirty-to-forty minutes edited and produced. In such cases students will hand in the original play, their adapted script, and a DVD of their completed video project (DVD quality, not VCD). Such video projects receive significantly more points divided amongst the students in the course who are involved.

Before beginning this project for extra credit, you MUST first contact the instructor as the play titles are limited and only one student per play. If another student has already reserved a title, you may NOT choose it. If you reserve a title for this project, you MUST complete it or face penalties.

If you wish to use a drama adapted from a Terry Pratchett novel that is not listed here, feel free to discuss it with the professor.

    • Sell the cemetery? Over their dead bodies... Not many people can see the dead (not many would want to). Twelve-year-old Johnny Maxwell can. And he's got bad news for them: the council want to sell the cemetery as a building site. But the dead have learnt a thing or two from Johnny. They're not going to take it lying down...especially since it's Halloween tomorrow. Besides, they're beginning to find that life is a lot more fun than it was when they were...well...alive. Particularly if they break a few rules.
    • This play is a dramatization of a fantasy novel by Terry Pratchett (the original novel is available here (UK) and here (US)).
      • Paperback 96 pages (5 December, 1996)
      • Publisher: Oxford University Press
