  • • I will lecture on major ideas that are central to the course content, yet discussions will become integral to classroom activity, the way in which that structure will evolve depends upon the direction of our class discussions. • The following classes will first invite several class members to share a 10-minutes feedback on the key topics raised in each of the readings. So be prepared before class please. The discussion items should cover at least: – a synthesis and brief summary of the key findings/arguments of the assigned reading; – a critique of whether or not you agree or disagree, and explain why; – and how does this reading relate to your research in terms of application into practice and theoretical contribution?
