Class Participation (20%) (Individual)
This course is not a spectator sport! The success of this course depends on your contribution to the lectures and case discussions through preparation and active participation. Mere presence does not constitute participation. Participation in class is crucial. Participation will be assessed throughout the course, with an emphasis on quality and not quantity. Quality of participation is dependent on your ‘absolute’ contribution towards an interactive learning environment, constructive interaction with the class, and relevance of points made. A few ways by which a student can contribute toward the learning environment are (please note that this list is merely indicative, and by no means exhaustive):
1. Asking relevant questions to the instructor or classmates that guide the class discussion
2. Answering relevant questions raised by the instructor or classmates
3. Making critical observations about the case study
4. Constructively disagreeing with points raised by the instructor or classmates and providing alternative explanations backed by critical analysis of the case and data
5. Debating the merits/demerits of solutions to a managerial situation proposed by the instructor or classmates
6. Posting relevant readings/articles that provide additional perspective to the case on our course website
Some kinds of participation that are particularly valued and gain extra credit are opening remarks to a case, original insights to a case, meaningful contribution to a debate, special presentations, class wrap-ups and take-aways.
Group Case Project (40% = 20%Presentation + 20% Report) (Group)
The purpose of this group project is to allow you to apply the ideas you have learned in an area of special interest to you. Project topics are proposed by project groups (with lecturer’s approval). You must clearly identify the problem, and investigate potential solutions. If you do not have enough time to implement your solution, then clearly specify how an implementation would be done.
More details will be given in class. Your group will need to present your project at the end of the course, and each group has 20 minutes to present and 5 minutes for Q&A. The final assessment will be based on the presentation (20%) and the report (20%). The final submission should include your written report (should not exceed 15 pages, with size-12 font, 1-inch margins, and double spacing, including everything) as well as your presentation file, and the due day is scheduled to be one week after the last class (11/19). See part E for more details for the project write-up.
