Item Introduction of 500 (five hundred) word summary of journal articles rlated to lecture topics
Details To expose my studens to recent development in the filed of management , I have now introduced a system where my seminar and MBA studets are required to submit summary of selected articles every week. This policy has been introduced in response to my observation that many students do not read the articles I select for them as part of the Presentation Review which I introduced in AY2013. I have reviewed my class evaluation survey and I am happy to see that most of my seminar and MBA students spent close to two hours every week in reading and writing the 500 word summary. At this stage I have not introduced this policy of writing 500 word summary every week for my undergarduate lecture subject students because it will not be possible for me to review them every week: I suaally have close to 250 students in rach of my undergraduate lecture subjects.
