Title: Getting Acquainted with the Instructor


1
Getting Acquainted with the Instructor
  • Intermediate Macroeconomic Theory II

2
Instructor J.D. Han
  • has a undergraduate degree in Politics,
    Philosophy and Economics
  • has a Ph.D. in macroeconomics-monetary-finance
  • does research in Financial History, Free Trade
    Agreements, and International Migration.

3
Real World Experiences
  • Was a researcher in international economics of
    financial crisis in 1997, which has eventually
    led to a publication of a monograph at the
    Rottman School, University of Toronto
  • Was a consultant, working with NYC financial
    firms such as Goldman Sachs, MSD, and Merrill
    Lynch, and getting involved in over 90 projects.
  • Have been an active board director and the audit
    committee chairman for banks for 15 years

4
Academic Approaches
  • The instructor
  • approaches issues from the perspectives of
    economics-politics-history-social philosophy
  • and at the same time tries to apply his real
    world experiences.
  • Accordingly, test/exam questions will reflect
    academic orientations and experiences.

5
Teaching Styles Pedagogic Focus
  • Not transfer of Information
  • lt-gt
  • But Helping You to build a Frame of Reference.

6
Corollary I
  • 1. Trying to present the Entirety of the
    Model, and to show how all components
    organically work together.
  • Peril Some would feel the instructor may
    rushing through materials.
  • Remedy He will go over the overall working of
    the system many times.

7
Corollary 2
  • No Time for Line-by-line Note-taking
  • Peril Some ill prepared students may feel dizzy
    at the speed of moving from one point to another.
  • Remedy I provide a detailed lecture note of full
    exposition, not just summary.

8
Class Lecture Notes
  • Is located at the Course Webpage
  • http//instruct.uwo.ca/economics/221b-570/

9
How to Prepare for Tests and Exams
  • Attend all classes
  • Go over the lecture notes
  • If you have time, you may read the textbook.
  • Review questions would be helpful Work on them,
    and come to the office hours for discussion.

10
How to help reduce anxiety around tests and exam
periods
  • Come to Regular and Special Office Hours
  • face-to-face question sessions
  • Do not hesitate to send me an e-mail for help.
  • Do NOT send an e-mail within a 24 hour period
    prior to tests and exam e-mails may only
    increase anxiety on both sides.

11
Relationship with Students
  • Likes to be goal-oriented
  • My goal is to help you develop liking to
    macroeconomics,
  • not to get popular.
  • Likes to have mutual respect and appreciation
  • - In the Catholic spirits, I would like to help
    a weak student realizing potential without
    neglecting a strong student.
  • Strives to be fair and honest to all
  • - I keep away from favoritism, psychological
    maneuvering, and conceit.
