|This course, Management Information System (MIS), is a required course taught in an all English environment, which also belongs to the two full English-teaching certificate programs offered by the College of Management.
Since the students have a prior knowledge from the Introduction to Information Management in the freshman year, the lecture will focus on the textbook cases in addition to the class Q&A on the book content. Plus, we have class group presentation with Q&A, Peer Evaluation System (PES-http://pes.nuk.edu.tw) online Q&A
This year, we will focus on voting your learning style using IRS (Instant Response Systems) via your own mobile devices and building your team activities. You can vote for learning the book chapter content taught by professor, presented by classmates, or previewed by yourself, as well as vote for open-book test or not? Two teambuilding activities include a short one conducted in classroom and a search the ballons using after-class time. Meanwhile, each group will be responsible live broadcasting and photos takings (MIS at NUK ) for one other group's presentation.
The objective is to immerse the students in an English learning environment for IM topics.
