Classes in ACCG224 are composed of lectures and tutorials. The structure of the unit is a two-hour lecture and a two-hour small group tutorial.
The unit's learning outcomes can only be achieved through self-study and independent learning supported by attending lectures and tutorials. The lectures provide a general overview of the topics highlighting a number of concepts and techniques. The tutorials complement lectures by providing opportunities to further explore all relevant concepts and techniques. Both lectures and tutorials will only support your learning if you prepare them thoroughly by doing the recommended readings and the pre-set tutorial questions as outlined in the Unit Schedule (available on the ACCG224 iLearn webpage) beforehand.
You are expected to attend the two-hour lecture 3 times a week during the Summer Session starting from Tuesday, 3 December 2019. Lecture slides will be available prior to the lectures on the ACCG224 iLearn webpage.
You must register for a tutorial. There will be a two-hour tutorial 3 times a week starting from Thursday, 5 December 2019.
