学習方法、レポート、課題に対するフィードバック方法 Course Approach, Report, Feedback methods

Studentʼs Responsibilities:
1. The course requires continuous work throughout the term, which includes reading and solving cases conceptually and numerically.
2. Students are expected to attend all scheduled class meetings. Failure to attend all class sessions will negatively impact your final grade. Class sessions should not be missed unless an emergency situation takes place, in which case students should notify the instructor via email before class.
3. Individual case studiesʼ assignments, reports and presentations should be submitted before each class meeting using Google Classroom.
4. Use of laptop, phone, tablet, smart watch and other communication devices for purposes other than learning are strictly prohibited.

Office hours are available for students who need further clarification of concepts presented in lecture and require further assistance understanding the concepts.

Access to University Electronic Mail and Google Classroom:
Students are expected to have access to university email and Google Classroom. The syllabus, lecture slides, and other pertinent information will be distributed by Google Classroom and students are expected to check it frequently.

Learning Method:
This course combines the use of the following learning methods: active learning and case method, weekly quiz and homework, and the Personal Financial Reporting Project.

Weekly Quiz and Homework
In order to understand accounting concepts introduced in this course, students will be assigned with homework and quiz. The homework will be assigned at the end of the course to test the knowledge learned in the class. The quiz tests accounting concepts learned in the previous week, and it will be given at the start of the class, and students are given 15 minutes to do the quiz. Grades for the weekly quiz and homework will be provided in the following week.

Case Method: Think, Argue and Learn
It is important that you adequately prepare for assigned case discussions before each class session. You will be expected to have reviewed and “solved” the case before the actual class discussion. Individual case solution to assignments should be uploaded to Google Classroom well before the class, and it will be graded.

At the beginning of each class session, 20 minutes will be dedicated to group discussions on the case(s) that have been assigned for discussion on that day. The member of each group will be randomly assigned at the beginning of each class session. Within the group, students are expected to first individually reflect on how they would answer the questions for the case. Then students should clarify their analysis in the class discussion session. Active discussion on both the group and in-class sessions is encouraged and will be assessed.

Simulation: The Personal Financial Reporting Project (PFRP) – Experience and Learn
This project is designed to reinforce students’ understanding of basic financial reporting concepts and their practical application to their personal financial situation. Students will complete a series of assignments where students will perform accounting cycle activities: identify personal assets and liabilities, record transactions (changes in assets, liabilities, revenue, and expenses), prepare financial statements, and write significant accounting policies. This project will help students understand their personal financial situation concerning earning, spending, investing, and saving activities using accounting concepts learned throughout the course.
