This course introduces five economic concepts that are considered most important to beginners by Nobel Economics Prize laureates. Economic theories are explained through examples from everyday life in order to assist students who are taking their first step into the field of economics. Students who already have taken other economic courses will have an opportunity to learn these western economic theories from an eastern perspective.
This course integrates Chinese cultures and mainstream teaching materials recognized by schools across the world, in order to help students build a more diversified and creative way of thinking. Through case studies, problem solving, and performance evaluations, students are expected to apply these economic theories into everyday life. In addition, this course refers to the work from previous students to provide more examples and inspirations for online students.
In addition, online discussions with the lecturer and teaching assistant are available to students with more possible learning methods, improve overall learning efficiency, and expand students’ horizons even more.
The course consists of five units. A single unit contains several lecture videos with English subtitles (about 10-15 minutes each). Students may arrange their learning schedules based on personal needs. The videos can be replayed, paused, or fast forwarded. A discussion forum is available for students to discuss questions with the lecturer or teaching assistant. There will be a short quiz for each unit, as well as mid-term and final exams.
