The course will be taught in English. The course will proceed in lectures. All lectures are prepared in power points, and the students will be able to get these power points before or after the classes. Students are encouraged to use skype to interact with the instructor outside the classes. The students have to read the materials, mainly, the ppt of the lecture, in advance. The lecture will only highlight the ppt, but will not follow the ppt. During the class, the students are invited to ask questions based on their readings of the preparatory materials and are also required to answer questions posed to them by the instructor. 30% of the score will be based on the in-class interacting performance of the student.
The evaluation of the student performance will be based on a term project (20%), a midterm exam (20%), a final exam (30%), and in-class interactions (30%).
For the term project, the student needs to choose a broad subject related to the class, and write an overview essay on it, for example, Chen, Chang, and Du (2012) and Chen and Gostoli (2014). These two are just examples to show how the term project looks like, but the student does not have to choose so wide and write so extensively. To choose a subject in a proper way, the
