|Course Name||Green Technology Innovation|
The in-class lecture of this course contains both lecturing and discussion; therefore, students are required to be prepared and participate in class discussion. Please see the above weekly course schedule for each week’s reading assignments. Textbooks are also assigned for references. Students are expected to form into groups for pre-class discussion, and to work on a term project. Each team member should contribute equally to the group, while your contribution will also be evaluated by your team members.
Each student should individually complete a one-page A4 memorandum (memo) each week for the week’s topic and assigned reading materials. You will hand in the memos in class the day the topic and reading are discussed. No late memorandums will be accepted. The memorandum should be typed, 11- or 12-point font size, double-spaced, with normal margins, pitch, etc. and should not exceed one page.
This course requires 3 hours of class time each week, while each student should spend 6 hours studying outside of class every week, including preparation and review.
In order for students to employ the knowledge, concepts, frameworks and tools to real cases with green innovation, this course requires students to conduct a team-based term project, and thus arranges three independent studies for students to carry out the projects. The first independent study is designed to develop group project proposals and prepare for mid-term presentations. The second independent study is designed for field work such as conducting expert interviews, while the third one is designed to analyze collected data and complete the project final report.
For the term project, students are expected to select a real case in the field of green technology innovation, and conduct a critical study on it. The purpose of this project is for student to explore the applications and practices of green technology innovation. Apart from secondary literature, students are suggested to conduct interviews with companies or organizations to collect data/information for the term project.
The term project includes three segments, including mid-term project presentation, final project presentation, and final project report.
