This course is based on one two hour lecture and a one hour tutorial and discussion board each week. Internal students are required to attend all tutorials. If you miss more than 2 tutorials during the semester you should provide your tutor with an explanation. External students are required to participate in on-line discussion through the weekly discussion boards.
The lecture class is Wednesday 11am-1pm. Tutorials are available at a number of times. Please note that tutorials start in week 1. Internal students are encouraged to engage through the discussion forums even though face to face tutorials are also available and compulsory.
All lectures will be recorded through echo360, and there are discussion forums for each tutorial. Attendance at lectures is strongly recommended for internal students, as this material will form the basis of the exam.
Both the lectures and the final exam are supported by a textbook available from the University Coop Bookstore:
Spies-Butcher, Cahill & Paton 2012, Market Society: history, theory, practice, Cambridge University Press: Melbourne.
There are also a number of tutorial readings available through e-reserve on the library website. Some of these readings are also required for the first assignment.
All written assignments (the short assignment and research assignment) should be submitted electronically via iLearn.
