課程概述

Basically, the course is operated in a “seminar” format- meaning that students are “very strongly” encouraged to present their opinions and challenge their fellow colleagues by offering different theoretical viewpoints or empirical information.

The course instructor will give a brief presentation on the each topic every week (around 1 hour), following by students’ oral presentation to their thoughts on assigned readings. All students are requested to write up one A4 page (800 words in English, or for the first few weeks, 1,200 words in Chinese is “compromised” to accept). Students who are NOT in charge of the week need to collect one piece of news about the course topic with different country focus. Students who are the chair of the week need to make their oral presentation by compiling everyone’s written thoughts as well as submitted news reports.
