The vast majority of managers’ interactions with others are oral. For this reason, the development of oral skills is given a high priority in this course. The classroom should be considered a laboratory in which you can test you ability to convince your peers of the relevance / appropriateness of your ideas.

As a result, your success in this course requires the following: a commitment to attend class, consistent preparation for each class (reading the assigned material and completing assigned problems), and a willingness to participate in class discussions. You will only get out of the course what you put into it.

Please note that high quality participation is the objective and not high quantity of airtime.

Class participation is worth 10% of the final grade for this course. Remember you cannot participate if you are absent from class.

EVALUATION OF CLASS PARTICIPATION

The following are some of the characteristics of effective class participation:

1. Are the points that are made relevant to the discussion in terms of increasing everyone’s understanding, or are they merely regurgitation of facts?

2. Do the comments take into consideration the ideas offered by others earlier in the class, or are the points isolated and disjointed? [Usually the best contributions following the lead off tend to be those, which reflect excellent preparation, good listening, and interpretative and integrative skills.]





3. Do the comments show evidence of a thorough reading and analysis of the assigned materials?

3

4. Does the participant distinguish among different kinds of data and their relative strengths: e.g., facts, opinions, assumptions, and inferences?

5. Is there a willingness to test new ideas, or are all comments cautious?

6. Is the participant willing to interact with other class members by asking questions and challenging conclusions?

7. Participants’ ability to integrate different ideas and concepts into a coherent thought.

8. Clearly, you must be present if you are going to participate and share your ideas with others.

However, attendance is only a necessary but not a sufficient condition for participation (and earning the associated marks).

Given below are a few illustrative categories that will be used in the evaluation of class participation. [Adapted from the teaching material of V. Govindarajan].

Outstanding Contributor: Contributions in class reflect thorough preparation. Ideas offered are usually substantive; provide one or more major insights as well as direction for the class. Arguments, when offered, are well substantiated and persuasively presented. If this person were not a member of the class, the quality of the discussions would be diminished significantly.

Good Contributor: Contributions in class reflect thorough preparation. Ideas offered are usually substantive; provide good insights and sometimes direction for the class. Arguments, when offered, are fairly well substantiated and sometimes persuasive. If this person were not a member of the class, the quality of the discussions would be diminished considerably.

Marginal Contributor: Contributions in class reflect satisfactory preparation. Ideas offered are sometimes substantive but seldom offer a major new direction for the discussion. Arguments are sometimes presented, and are fairly well substantiated and sometimes persuasive. If this person were not a member of the class, the quality of the discussions would be diminished marginally.

Unsatisfactory Contributor: This person has said little or nothing in this class to date, or comments have not reflected satisfactory preparation, or arguments were not properly presented or substantiated.

Hence, there is either no adequate basis for evaluation or the person did not add value to the class discussions. If this person were not a member of the class, the quality of the discussions would not be changed.

TEACHING STRATEGIES

While there will be three (3) contact hours each week during which the lecturer will lead the discussion on the assigned material, the session is expected to be interactive. As such you are expected to read the assigned material prior to each class session. Students who come to class without having completed assignments (readings and exercises) or are otherwise unprepared to participate in class discussions may be asked to leave. While attendance is not compulsory, students are responsible for all announcements made in class. If you choose not to attend class you will automatically forfeit the marks allocated for class participation.

4 If you do not understand something discussed in class, please do not hesitate to ask questions. Please note that the course material cannot be digested two or three weeks before the final examination. Success in this course can ONLY be achieved by keeping abreast with the material and constantly working questions throughout the semester. Please attempt all the assigned cases/problems/exercises that will be assigned from time to time.

Assigned readings and problems represent the minimum preparation for the material to be covered in lectures. You should seek out and read other books and articles that seem relevant to the course topics.

This independent study will expose you to a broader range of views on the issues relating to fiscal management in sport and enhance your understanding of the material covered in class.
