As the introductory lecture for the triple-specialization program of the International College of Innovation, this course aims to guide our first-year students to the world of contemporary global studies. By referring to global studies as a specific field of interdisciplinary expertise, we consider the globe as a community, where environment, resources, species, and human activities are all closely bound together across the sovereign state borders. This course prepares the undergraduates for the three specializations at the International College of Innovation: Asian Studies, Global Governance and Sustainable Development, and Global Technology and Innovation Management. Lectures will be given by different guest lecturers, experts in their respective domains. Topics of lectures here are indicative, lecturers may fix their own topic accordingly based on their expertise. As a whole, this course puts forward a panorama for the ICI program and pave the way to better comprehend the objectives of our training. This three-credit course is compulsory for all first-year students of ICI and optional to other NCCU students.
Students are required to develop teamwork spirit, so as to fit in a deliberative way of decision-making. All lectures given are organized into three sessions of "hearing and deliberation" proceeding. Following four lectures and Q&A (hearing), students are supposed to draft their team proposals according to these lectures so as to prove their relative comprehension and show their reflections. Each team holds internal discussions before presenting its proposal to the plenary meeting, in which teams should try to reach a consensus and adopt a final version of a joint conclusion (deliberation). This plenary meeting is chaired by the responsible instructor, assisted by a secretariat composed by one representative of each team. Members of this secretariat can only serve one term (session). Teams are supposed to learn about cooperation and coordination, as well as competition. Traditional performance competition between individuals is to be abandoned in this course. The performance of students is evaluated according to their teamwork.
