Learning and Teaching Activities
Classes for ACCG1001 in Session 2 2021 consist of a weekly pre-recorded online lecture and a weekly face-to-face on campus tutorial or an online zoom tutorial.
The pre-recorded lectures will be uploaded on iLearn weekly. Each week's lecture will provide an explanation of that week's learning concepts as well as practical explanations and examples to supplement the concept materials. Each week you are expected to read both the relevant textbook chapter(s) listed in the unit schedule and any supplementary materials specified on iLearn in addition to watching the pre-recorded lecture. Lecture slides, in pdf format, will be available on the ACCG1001 iLearn web page on a weekly basis.
The weekly tutorial classes will be for a duration of 1.5 hours and commence in Week 2. Students can choose to enrol in either a face-to-face on campus tutorial or an online zoom tutorial. The face-to-face or online zoom tutorials will involve the tutors and the students working through pre-set tutorial questions as well as in-class tutorial activities. Students must register for a tutorial and attend their registered tutorial. Students are advised that any changes to tutorial classes must be made online through eStudent.
The purpose of tutorials (from Week 2 to 13) is to provide an interactive learning environment in which to apply and practice the content covered in lectures. You are expected to watch the online lectures and attempt the weekly tutorial homework questions before attending your registered tutorial class. The suggested solutions to tutorial homework questions will be made available on the ACCG1001 iLearn web page at the end of each week.
