Instructor Information

Quick Actions (Only for Validated Instructor Accounts):

Experience Criminal Justice provides an environment for students to apply the foundations of the Criminal Justice system to interactive and assignable activities online. Students will read about the foundations of Courts, Cops, and Corrections in the streamlined, brief text, and then apply those foundations online as they use their own discretionary skills in You Make the Call videos and other online activities. Should officers issue a ticket to every single person who gets caught speeding? Students find out how to make their own decisions and learn that the Criminal Justice system isn’t all black and white. Experience Criminal Justice is assignable, tied to student learning outcomes, and is completely integrated with Blackboard.

Instructors and students can now access their course content through the Connect digital learning platform by purchasing either standalone Connect access or a bundle of print and Connect access. McGraw-Hill Connect® is a subscription-based learning service accessible online through your personal computer or tablet. Choose this option if your instructor will require Connect to be used in the course. Your subscription to Connect includes the following:

• SmartBook® - an adaptive digital version of the course textbook that personalizes your reading experience based on how well you are learning the content.
• Access to your instructor’s homework assignments, quizzes, syllabus, notes, reminders, and other important files for the course.
• Progress dashboards that quickly show how you are performing on your assignments and tips for improvement.
• The option to purchase (for a small fee) a print version of the book. This binder-ready, loose-leaf version includes free shipping.

About the Author

Nicole Hendrix

Nicole Hendrix is an Associate Professor in the Department of Criminal Justice at Radford University, where she teaches introduction to criminal justice, among other courses. Dr. Hendrix completed her undergraduate and master’s degrees at the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, where her love of exploring crime and justice grew from several projects that emphasized academic and applied research. Dr. Hendrix went on to earn her PhD in Criminal Justice from the University at Albany-SUNY, where she worked on numerous research projects, including the Rochester Youth Development Study. Much of her work reflects her belief that building bridges between academia and professional criminal justice results in the best outcomes for communities.
