Course Aims

This course aims to engage students in in-depth study and analysis of a selected Asian society or region by way of problem-based learning. Students will be introduced to historical backgrounds and a variety of theme-based issues in lecturer-led seminars. Students will then form small groups and work together to identify a problem they are most interested in and find solutions to the problem. Through group work and problem-based learning, students will learn how to communicate effectively in collaborative work and engage in team research projects, which require them to articulate different perspectives, appraise problems and offer ways of resolving them. These skills will enhance students’ employability in organizations working on regional projects.
