  • The      topic you selected for the field of the proposal should be pretty much related      to environmental science and engineering. Each of your selected topics      needs to be reviewed and approved by the teacher before it can be formally      written. Each student needs to independently complete his/her own proposal      in accordance with the template format provided in our course. The first      proposal must be submitted by the third week of the course. The second      opening report should be submitted no later than the fifth week of the      course.

  • Two      PPT presentation assignments: each presentation topic should be kept in      the same topic as the corresponding proposals you have submitted; each onsite      student is also required to make two corresponding English PPT presentations      in an arranged class time slot during our regular class time. The online      students who are staying in their home countries are not required to      present their PPT online in the class due to concern about their WIFI      speed, instead, they are required to submit their PPT homework with their      presentation voice recorded in the file that has to be sent to the pointed      Email address at junliu115142@ujs.edu.cn by      the due date we asked.

 

  • If you      missed one time of class without getting permission ahead of time from      your teacher for an excuse, you will have no score and credit for this      course. If you are late to attend this class no more than 5 minutes, you can      request an entry to the classroom after sending a message to us via the Wechat platform, otherwise, you will not be      allowed to come to the classroom when you report to class late beyond 5      min. If you are late report to the classroom without excuse from your      teacher more than two times (each beyond 5 min), you may lose the      opportunity to enter the classroom, which will result in a serious      consequence of losing your course credit completely. Onsite students who      are on campus are required to go to the classroom early, ahead of class      time at least 10 min earlier, which will ensure that you can catch an elevator      in time to approach the 8th floor of the San-Shan Building (三山楼) for your classroom. Those online students are also      required to get ready ahead of the class time (each Friday at 4:00 PM,      Beijing time) at least 10 min earlier and get on the board of the class      meeting software app, “Voov”. We will send you the log in ID before 4:00      pm of class time via the Wechat communication platform that will allow you      to log in to this meeting APP platform.

The most important notice for each student:

1.    We will have online courses via the “Voov” meeting platform until the on-site teaching is allowed by the university. All students need to install the “Voov” meeting software and test their equipment, e.g. PC or phone. We will test the online lecturing a few days before the first course, please check the notice on the WeChat group platform.

2.    When the on-site teaching is available and approved by university, all students who stay in China are required to physically attend the class in person. You are required to sign your name on the attendance sheet each time before the class in the classroom to inform/justify to us that you attend the class without being late. Those online students who are staying in their home countries, it is also required to attend each class online via the Meeting platform, “Voov” and the teacher will check if each student presents the class via our meeting platform. It is required to get approval from Dr. Jianzhong Sun, the leader of this course, for your absence from the class for any coming case or reasons.

3.    Regarding student homework submission, each homework document name should be named in our proposed format, i.e., Assigned class code-Full name-Proposal/PPT-order of submission. For example, the first proposal homework should be named as A2-傅佳军-Proposal-1、A2-傅佳军-PPT-1、B1-MANSUUR HUSEIN-Proposal-1、B1-MANSUUR HUSEIN-PPT-1, where A2, or B1 are the student class ID code we assigned to each student (please see the student grouping information sheet for your class ID code). Each student’s homework is required to submit to the pointed Email address at junliu115142@ujs.edu.cn before the due date we have asked. Each homework assignment can only be submitted to the teacher at one time and don’t submit your homework repeatedly for the reason of a revision. You need to finalize your document before submission. Particularly, we will not accept the over due homework from students and in that case, you will lose the whole score points. There are four homework assignments in total for each student who registered for this course, which include two research proposals and two PPT presentations. For each student assignment due date and time, please check the timetable of the course teaching section in this syllabus.

4.    A special attention should be paid to those online participating students who are assigned to the “B” code group, each PPT assignment asked from this class is particularly required to add your own speech voice as a standard conference presentation and recoded your speech into your PPT file.

Week 8 (April 15th):

Dr./Prof. Sun will introduce the syllabus of the course with its general requirements of the course, the arrangement of the course and its tests including midterm and final exams.

Dr./Prof. Liu will introduce the writing tips and requirements to develop a high quality of your academic research proposal. A proposal template will be then provided for you to follow the instruction.

Student Homework: Each student, including online students, in this class, is required to work out a total of two research proposals in the required quality, format, and length. The scope of the topic should be pretty much related to your major, environmental science and engineering. In addition, two PPT presentation performances are further designed in this class for each onsite student, the first one is designed for a group collaboration performance with three onsite students in PPT presentation, but, the second one is required individually in his/her presentation for onsite students only in our class time. As for those online students assigned to the “B” section, The PPT presentation assignments are not required to provide a PPT presentation during class time via the “Voov” platform due to the WIFI speed concerns. Instead, they are required to record his/her own speech voice into the PPT file as a standard conference presentation within 10 min, then submit it to class teachers for evaluation and scoring.

l  The first research proposal for both onsite and online students has to be submitted electronically in a word file format to teachers for evaluation due by April 29th, 2022, at 10:00 PM, Beijing time.

Each onsite student in the class will be arranged to form a study group/team at a total of three people (onsite students), which will be announced/informed on our WeChat platform ahead of class for information sharing for which group you may belong to. A proposal topic from a group will be selected as a PPT presentation topic for group performance in terms of the highest score submitted from a study group. The student who wins the highest score for his/her research proposal will be automatically assigned as the group leader for arranging the role of a student in a group performance for the PPT presentation. One of the students in a study group will be responsible for answering the teacher's question after the PPT presentation for 5 min, and the other two students will serve as the presenters in the PPT presentation and each at a 5 min talking in a collaborative way for presentation. Those students who will not be assigned to be a study group will be then asked to prepare a 10 min PPT and present individually. However, those online students in the B code section who do not stay in China are not required to present a class PPT presentation via “Voov” due to the WIFI technical concerns, and instead, each online student is required to record his/her 10-minute PPT presentation in its own PPT file and submit it before the due date we asked. Please be aware that, in general, the PPT topic for each student to prepare should be the same as your submitted proposal topic (The first PPT topic should go with your first proposal topic, the same requirement applied to your second PPT topic selection).
