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

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

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 solutions to assignments should be uploaded to Google Classroom well before the class.

At the beginning of each class session, 15 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 reflect on how they would answer the questions for the case. Then students should clarify their analysis in the class discussion session. Active discussion in both the group and in-class sessions is encouraged and will be assessed.

The Personal Financial Reporting Simulation (PFRS) – 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.

The project consists of four parts and each subsequent part of the project builds upon the previous part by adding a new component of your personal financial statements. This project requires your attention to these points:
• Students need to collect the necessary financial information for a continuous period during the term.
• All the assignments are submitted through Google Classroom and are only accessible to the lecturer. Your information will only be used for grading. If you have any privacy concerns, please contact the professor.
• Each part of the project should be completed on time.
Further details on this project will be provided in the class.

授業調査に対するコメント Comment on Course Evaluation

"Breakout rooms were fun, we got to discuss among friends and classmates our own opinions. The professor gave us ample time to express our opinions during class discussions."
"Some theories were gone through quite quickly due to the pace of the lectures, hence additional homework or practices will be helpful for us to further understanding of the topics."
"The professor's way of making us practice certain accounting methods helps. The professor answers questions during class and tries his best to make us understand accounting."
