STUDY GUIDE FOR PRINCIPLES OF ECONOMICSThis study guide is an extended version of the check list prepared by Dr.Karkoviata.This is part of theresources available to students. Regardless of the mode of your class; face to face, hybrid or online, theteam taught program is an interactive program where the student is provided the opportunity to takeresponsibility for his or her learning through self-directed learning resources.The student takes the initiative to pursue a learning experience, and the responsibility for completing theirlearning. This does not mean the student does not receive instruction, tutoring or guidance from the Leadprofessor or support professor. Self-direction does not mean the learner learns on his or her own or inisolation. The key factor is that the student is responsible for his or her individual total learning experience,beginning with recognizing a need to learn.A critical difference in the team taught program is that there are two instructors, the Lead and SupportProfessor who provide a holistic approach to the learning experience.The Lead Professor designs thecourse structure, oversees the program, and with the Support Instructor monitors student progress (orlack thereof).The Support Instructor provides direct classroom instruction across all platforms; F2F,hybrid or online.This study guide is just one of many resources available to the student. There are also instructor videosby the Lead Professor and the author of the textbook, learning activities, flashcards, practice quizzes andhands on problem solving sets.It is YOUR responsibility as the student to identify the resources available to you and decide the mostefficient way to utilize them. Think of your learning as a journey. You know where you want to go andwhen you have to arrive. There are a number of routes available, choice of transportation and even whenyou start your journey.You may choose to use all the resources available or few. The key is to use them efficiently.How much time should you study or can expect to study?Most of the literature I’ve seen say that students should spend 3 hours PER CREDIT HOUR a week. Ergo,a 3 credit hour class like this translates to 12 hours a week. If you take 5 classes, that will be 60 hours aweek. This is why working full time and taking a full load can be very challenging.Will you actually have to spend 12 hours a week? Like a true economist, the answer is, “It depends”.It depends on how efficient your reading comprehension is and how established your study habits are.There are other things you might discover that you can improve on. I have had excellent students spendbetween 2 to 6 hours a week studying.Time management skills and organization of your study materials well will help you reduce the study andpreparation time. Start by organizing a folder, a physical or online folder, and keep your resources suchas notes, textbook (this textbook is a loose-leaf 3 ring binder edition), the syllabus AND the class calendar.
