Paper Structure

The format for classroom sessions is a combination of instructor- and student-led presentations together with other material, to discuss relevant questions, analyse cases, and provide the insights that will help you 'scaffold' your own learning. You are also expected to conduct regular group work throughout the semester as an integral part of this course.

Given the subject matter, you are encouraged to use a smartphone or other wireless device to access online sources in class. However, the prevalence of unsubstantiated ‘facts’ makes it imperative that you check the validity of your online sources. Hearsay, ‘armchair expert’ opinion, thinly disguised marketing; old ‘facts’; and sweeping generalisations requires you consider the Accuracy; Authority; Objectivity; Currency; and Coverage of your online sources (refer to http://guides.library.cornell.edu/evaluating_Web_pages).
