Assessment
and Goals
:

Goals: Students will become familiar with the inefficiency that results from the application of individual economic incentives to common-property resources and the danger this poses for a variety of ecosystems.  Students will be asked to apply the theoretical framework developed in the course to an in-depth case study of a particular common-property resource.

Assessment: Student learning will be assessed on the basis of contributions to class discussions, and an in-depth case study (both a written report and a class presentation).

Rationale for
Changes or
Exceptions
:

THE INTER-RELATION OF TOPICS, THE SEMINAR FORMAT, AND THE CASE STUDIES AND PRESENTATIONS WILL ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO EXPLORE CONNECTIONS THAT THEY MIGHT NOT OTHERWISE MAKE OR WOULD LARGELY HAVE TO MAKE ON THEIR OWN IF THEY APPROACHED THESE TOPICS INDEPENDENTLY
