Key Features

Each lecture you will be assigned to read some material and then write one page about the content as well as any opinion, question and new understanding that you had about the document by the following week. During the lecture, everyone will debate based on the assignment. After the lecture, I would like you to submit your feedback. I will take an empirical and confirmatory approach, by recording both the assignment and the feedback, and by analyzing the differences between the two, I will clarify what impact the lecture has had on the students and what kind of effect can improve the course.
