CASE STUDIES / PARTICIPATION - 50%
Participation is an important part of the assessment for this course. Combined with case studies, participation makes up 50% of the total grade.
Participation has five components:
- In Class Participation - 10%
This component is based on attendance and engagement in tutorials. Asking and responding to questions during tutorials and demonstrating understanding of relevant content each week. Please note, this participation component is not based solely on attendance and you DO NOT need to apply for SC for any missed tutorials. If you miss live participation in more than two tutorials, you should contact your tutor directly.
- Online Participation - 10%
This component is secured via pop quizzes in weeks 2 through 11. These quizzes are each worth 1% of your grade and require you to answer a single question based on the lecture and reading material for that week. Pop quizzes will take a variety of forms and are not necessarily multi-choice. The pop quizzes are open all week. You have 10 minutes to answer the question and you will receive immediate feedback once you complete the quiz.
- Case Study Reflections - 30%
This component involves three reflections throughout the semester on case studies discussed in the course. Details will be provided in the first tutorial and case study activities will involve a combination of in class and online engagement activities.
FINAL ASSESSMENT ESSAY - 30%
You will be required to write a 2,500 word research essay (inclusive of footnotes) that demonstrates your critical understanding and engagement with the subject matter from this course AND your ability to conduct independent research.
