Suggestions on
Preparation and
Enough preparation and review is necessary because many contents are taught in each lesson. 
Grading Method Up to 70 points for the performance of one’s presentation at the case study. Up to 30 points for active  participation in the discussion at the case studies.  
Practical Experience  
Summary of Practical Experience and Class Contents based on it  
Please fill in the class improvement questionnaire which is carried out on all classes.
Instructors will reflect on your feedback and utilize the information for improving their teaching.
