Class reports/rapporteurs

For each of our six sessions, we have nominated two of our number who will serve as rapporteurs: their task being to follow closely the discussions and presentations during their four-hour session, and to prepare a short report of activities, presentation, discussions, findings, conclusion and, if any, recommendations. The reports will be of course spell-checked and submitted by email to seminars@ecoplan.org (with a copy to me at eric.britton@ecoplan.org). They should run from two to five pages each.

The objective in each case is to “report to your boss who is interested but cannot attend”. This approach is intended to ensure that the rapporteurs do not only make lists of topics presented, but that you show understanding and judgement. This is a situation in which you will find themselves often in your careers, so let’s get started today. This exercise will be taken into account in determining the final mark for the course.

The rapporteurs are invited to submit either individual or team reports, as they chose. Thursday reports to be submitted no later than 09:00 on Friday, etc. These reports will be immediately posted on the site and comments will be welcomed.

In a normal full semester course there would be time to discuss these nominations, but our fire-engine schedule does not permit that luxury this time around. So here are my nominations. (If any of you agree to switch sessions, no problem here but make sure you inform me well in advance.)
