Summer Course in English

FY 2009 Intensive Summer Course
Course title: Contemporary Economics Ⅱ
Course code: EG-C581 (2 credits)
Instructor: Ralph Paprzycki (COE Researcher)
Period: Monday, August 3, 2009 - Friday, August 7, 2009

This class teaches students how to write and present an academic paper in English. In order to make the classes as helpful and praxis-oriented as possible, classes consist not only of lectures, but also of discussions of students' work and short presentations by students. For this reason, students are asked to make some preparations in advance. Specifically, during the course, students are requested each to:

(a) Bring with them a piece of written work (e.g., thesis chapter, discussion paper, M.A. dissertation). This can be a work in progress or something already completed. Please think about what you would like to bring to discuss in class. Usually, two or three pages are enough.

(b) Give a short presentation of ca. 10-15 minutes on their research. Equipment to use PowerPoint will be available. Presentations will be held on the 4th and 5th day of the course, but students are advised to think about and, if possible, start preparing their presentation before the course starts.
