This EBC3 course consists of a mix of self-study, interactive online activities, and live/on-campus classes relating to different aspects of the course.
In the first part of the course, we will focus on preparing for our joint session with NHH Bergen, working through the content topics and discussing the orals and report writing.
The second part of the course will comprise presentation sessions and the larger assessment elements (Report and Business English in Context tests). The orals will be held during the presentation sessions and students not presenting will be required to listen actively, ask questions and give feedback in class and/or asynchronously online. The Report and Business English in Context tests will also be held in the final sessions scheduled at the regular time. See information below for further details.
Self-study materials will be posted regularly and are designed to be used alongside class materials. These comprise language, comprehension and content exercises to help you understand and be able to discuss business topics pertaining to globalised trade and sustainable business, international market entry, risk in international trade, financial management and legal English.
During the course you will be invited to participate in a range of synchronous and asynchronous interactive activities, such as creating mini-presentations, posting and responding to threads in a discussion forum, peer-reviewing reports, and working together in small groups (2-4 people) on quizzes. These activities are intended to help build a class community as well as help you go deeper into the material and prepare for the assessments.
The live/on-campus sessions will be held during the scheduled class times and will have a content and/or language focus, depending on the relevant unit. EBC3 is currently scheduled to take place on campus but this may change depending on developments with Covid-19 and the government regulations. Please keep checking your WU email, MS Teams and the notices (Ankündigungen) on LEARN for up-to-date information. These sessions will also comprise a mix of teacher-led input, spontaneous and prepared presentations and discussions, and preparation for the assessment elements.
Please note that the attendance requirement refers to these sessions, and will be upheld regardless of whether we have class online or on campus.
