Content

Assessment methods

Class Contribution             one-third

Presentations                    one-third

Seminar Paper                   one-third

 Assignments will consist of class presentation and a seminar paper.  For each class, one student takes the lead and present one of the assigned papers in detail.  All the other students should prepare a critique of the assigned papers, i.e., take notes while reading and preparing the paper to help advance our class discussions with critical questions. This class participation is intended to help you sharpen your conceptual and theory building skills and thus help you in turn become more systematic in your critical thinking and writing. At the end of the course, we ask you to summarize key learning.

The assignments of students to sessions and papers will be done jointly in class. Working in pairs will also be feasible and should be discussed up front.

The provided working papers copies are restricted in use for our course only.
