7Teaching Methods and Recommendations

The course is interactive. Lectures are combined with discussions of reading material, students’ presentations and mutual assessments of their work. Leading specialists in regional studies are invited to give their views on particular topics.
Students are required to present their essays in class, preferably as power-point presentations.

7.1Recommendations for course teacher

Presenting lecture material in a comparative perspective and within the framework of the globalisation processes, is important.

7.2Recommendations for Students

Students are recommended to look for the latest material relevant to this course in the media (first of all, the Economist and the Financial Times) and use it in their presentations, discussions and essays, as relevant academic studies take several years to be published, and the situation in this area of study changes fast.

8Grading Estimation

  2. Globalisation and regionalisation – complimentary or contradictory processes?

  4. Explain the phenomenon of transnationalism. Analyse aspects of transnationalism. Give examples.

  5. Global regions. How many are there? Give examples. Give your own definition of a global region

  7. Domino effect in the regional dynamics of collapse. Give examples.

  8. Competing centres of power in East Asia: analyse the dynamics.

  22. Russia’s economic regions: a case, chosen by the student (different from the one, analysed the student’s essay)

9The rule of forming cumulative grade

Cumulative grade (Gc). for the student’s work during the semester consists of the lecturer’s assessment of the student’s works at seminars and lectures (general participation, quality and quantity of interventions, quality and independence of presentations) (Gp) – and of their essays (Ge). All essays will be checked for plagiarism.

Gc = Gp + Ge,
where Gp = 0,5 and Ge = 0,5.
Finale grade (Gf) is calculated on the basis of cumulative grade (Gc) and the final assessment (exam) grade (Gex):

Gf = Gc + Gex

where Gc = 0,5 and Gex = 0,5.

The grades are rounded in favour of the student.
