IV. STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES
Reading assignments should be prepared thoroughly prior to the session for which they are assigned. Lectures will parallel with the text and Online Learning Center in most instances but will be supplemented by additional material, thereby making attendance a necessity. Each student is expected to participate regularly in class discussion, both as called by the instructor and on a voluntary basis. To a large extent, learning this course is related to 1) the degree of your participation and sharing insights and knowledge, 2) willingness to expose your view points to the critical judgments of your classmates or team members, 3) ability to listen carefully to comments made by other participants Each student also has the responsibility to become familiar with the provision of the Honor Code and Honor System procedures by the National Chiao Tung University.
VI. HARVARD CASES
There are seventeen cases from Harvard Business Online. Each team will be responsible for the presentation of three cases, which takes a maximum 30 minutes in reviewing the case. For non-presenting teams, each team is expected to submit a maximum 4 typed pages with a brief of synopsis and the major issues resolved.
The use of the participant-centered learning (PCL) case method in our class requires each one of you work individually first -- to carefully read and to think about each case (typically about two hours of preparation time for each case).
Once you have done your individual preparation, then you're ready to joint your team's group discussion. The purpose of your group discussion is not to generate consensus, but rather it helps your team members to refine, adjust, and amplify their thinking. A fruitful group discussion is characterized by intense interaction that deepens participant's understanding beyond that gained through individual analysis. You then share your observations, analyses, ideas, or rule of thumb from your group analysis to the class for further discussion. You will quickly find out your teammates or your classmates differ significantly on what's important and how to deal with problems, and the impact of decisions in one sector of an organization upon other sectors. This diversity of opinion -- most of the time, surprise, intellectual debates, exciting, and fun -- from differing perspectives offers real opportunities for shared learning.
