COURSE POLICIES:
* The Course will be run with an interactive approach. Students participation is expected and encouraged.
Students are responsible to read the incoming chapter beforehand. The teacher underlines the main theoretical
notions and discusses practical dimentions with the class to strenghten the subject in the second half of the every
lesson.
* When a chapter is completed, students are responsible to prepare the case study related the processed (last)
chapter until next class. In the next class, every group, which will be formed by 4 or 5 students, will bring their
printed report on the Case. During the first half of the lesson, the class will be discussing the solutions of the
groups on the Case of last week’s subject.
* Nobody is forced to stay in the classroom during the lessons and it is out of probability to classify the students
as attendants / non-attendants. But it is thought that there is very less probability to pass in this case. Decision is
yours. You are not children.
