Session 12:Final Exam
Based on a philosophy that effective learning hinges not only upon teacher-student interaction, but also upon inter-student interaction, this course will be carried out in a variety of forms. Besides lectures offered by the instructor, students are encouraged to engage in class discussions, learning from each other and self-learning. Hence, there will be some team projects like presentations on some case studies.
Throughout the course, students are required to present some topics. For topic presentation, students may be divided into different groups (depending on the no. of students), each responsible for one topic. Students in the same group need to make joint efforts to make well preparation for their presentations.
Presentations will count toward final grades. The students who prepare presentations should circulate the PPT slides to other students and the instructor before class. Topic presentation should be around 15-18 minutes, followed by class discussion. Students’ performance in presentations will be counted.
Students are expected to complete all required readings prior to class meetings and to actively participate in class discussion. Absence without legitimate reasons will lead to deduction in scores for participation and discussion.
In the meantime, we will organize some field trips to some companies and markets in order to observe the dynamism of Chinese economy.
