Independent Study Project
Co-ordinated by Tim SUMMERS
In this course, students will work on a practical research project led by CCS faculty.
Detailed Course Outline is available on Blackboard.
Assessment & Assignments
Students will agree specific performance indicators with the relevant faculty at the start of the course and be assessed on how well they meet these indicators, accounting for 50% of the total grade. Students will also be required to write a summative report of their experience and what they have learned during the course, relating this to wider themes of China Studies which students have studied in their other required and elective courses (50% of the total grade; to be uploaded on Veriguide). The summative report should be sent to the course coordinator as well as to the faculty member working with the student.
Honesty in Academic Work
Attention is drawn to University policy and regulations on honesty in academic work, and to the disciplinary guidelines and procedures applicable to breaches of such policy and regulations. Details may be found at http://www.cuhk.edu.hk/policy/academichonesty/.
With each assignment, students will be required to submit a signed declaration that they are aware of these policies, regulations, guidelines and procedures.
- In the case of group projects, all members of the group should be asked to sign the declaration, each of whom is responsible and liable to disciplinary actions, irrespective of whether he/she has signed the declaration and whether he/she has contributed, directly or indirectly, to the problematic contents.
- For assignments in the form of a computer-generated document that is principally text-based and submitted via VeriGuide, the statement, in the form of a receipt, will be issued by the system upon students’ uploading of the soft copy of the assignment.
Assignments without the properly signed declaration will not be graded by teachers.
Only the final version of the assignment should be submitted via VeriGuide.
The submission of a piece of work, or a part of a piece of work, for more than one purpose (e.g. to satisfy the requirements in two different courses) without declaration to this effect shall be regarded as having committed undeclared multiple submissions. It is common and acceptable to reuse a turn of phrase or a sentence or two from one’s own work; but wholesale reuse is problematic. In any case, agreement from the course teacher(s) concerned should be obtained prior to the submission of the piece of work.
