Teaching, Learning, and Assessment Strategy
The teaching and learning processes are conducted through lectures, tutorials, practical demonstrations and activities, completed with students’ independent study. It is the responsibility of the lecturer of a particular course to facilitate all students’ learning on the course, who can be assisted by a mentor, if necessary. By having qualified lecturers and guest lecturers from professional industries, the students will be able to gain knowledge from both sides, i.e. theoretical and practical frameworks, through in-depth analysis of case studies, and individual/group work projects. For doing their research activities, students can access magazines, books, academic journal in a good quality library – including accessing the online library to get updated academic papers. All course-work are assessed through a variety of assessment tasks such as reports, presentations, assignments, individual and group projects, and thesis/final project report as well as mid-semester and final semester examinations.
A series of extra-curricular activities are compulsory in the International Business Program. These activities will allow students to develop their social awareness, competitive and soft skills needed to be prepared for the work environment.
In addition, the innovation habit will be developed through course assessment that put weight on innovation and entrepreneurial skills. Project Hatchery, Entrepreneurship 1, and Entrepreneurship 2 are courses that reflect such competence designed by the Center of Innovation and Entrepreneurship in Binus University International. Students are required to translate their selected innovative ideas into a visible design to comprehend the end-to-end innovation process. This innovation thinking approach is implemented in the teaching, learning, and assessment process of several courses throughout the program.
