Structure of the course

This course is divided into several sessions, each session could comprise from one to three classes. Each session is divided into part: short introductory lecture by instructor and the discussion. Discussion could be presented in two forms: as a group discussion or as a presentation by one or two students and the discussion after this presentation.


Participation and attendance

This is a graduate course and given the nature of the course students are expected to mandatory attend all classes and to actively participate. As well, preparing the assigned readings is essential, due to the complexity of the subject and the fact that the amount of material covered every week is quite large. If you are late in class more that for 20 minutes without reasonable explanation you grade for participation could be degraded (Instructor will formally inform you about this)

If you’ve missed a class you have to inform instructor before (!) the class and explain the formal reason for that. For each unexcused absence thereafter you have to write an overview using the readings provided for the missed class (2-3 pages). You could miss no more that two classes (sessions). In other case your final grad will be decreased. You are responsible for keeping the professor informed of any situation that prevents you from attending class.

Class participation will constitute 25% of the final grade.


Readings

Readings is very important for this course. All classes will be built around discussion after reading recommended materials. It means that if you won’t read these materials and can not discuss it content and authors’ approaches to the problems you will get a very low final grade.

Students are expected to complete all the assigned readings on time and contribute to class discussions. In addition, each class one or two students will be assigned to give a short commentary related to the class’s topic and/or readings.
Discussion

We will have group discussions and “strategic game”. The participation is very important for the final grade. Asking questions to instructor as well to each other (even the same question twice ) is expected, indeed strongly encouraged.



Plagiarism and Academic Dishonesty

Plagiarism is a serious academic offense and it will not be tolerated. Plagiarism is the theft of someone else’s intellectual property or presenting another person’s work as one’s own. Plagiarism is "a piece of writing that has been copied from someone else and is presented as being your own work." This includes ideas as well as specific phrases, sentences or paragraphs. To avoid plagiarism, it is essential that you use proper quotation and citation in all the written work you submit for the course. You are responsible for handing in original work and for citing all of your information sources.
