#14 Course Review and Prep for Midterm Examination
4. Assignments/Examination/Grad Eval.
There will a "take home" final examination, which is 50 percent of the grade. Students will be evaluated based on their grasp of the contents of the lectures and their personal perspective and analysis of the issues discussed. Examinations may be prepared in either Japanese or English. The other 50 percent will come from the instructor's evaluation of student participation in the class, including attendance. The ability to engage Korean and Chinese students effectively in class discussions and during weekend discussion sessions will be a key part of this evaluation.
5. Special Note
I am looking for students that are confident at expressing their thoughts and opinion in English in an international setting as representative both of the university and Japanese students generally. We are just beginning to unlock the power of the Internet in providing a framework for distance learning and breaking down the barriers between countries in the Asia region. Students need to be committed to making this experiment work.
6. Prerequisit / Related courses
