Because the size of this UF course is so large, Professor Mocko offers her students a choice of four different international activities. Her students may choose to participate in any one of the four projects described below, which are each carried out with a different international partner and all happen within the same semester.
Project 1: Data Ethics-This project involves a mixture of synchronous and asynchronous activities, in which students read about data ethics and then defend their opinions on whether or not data was used ethically in a specific case.
Project 2: Data Ethics- In this assignment, students interact asynchronously to discuss data ethics.
Project 3: Company Valuation- In this activity, students compare the company valuations between a U.S. and a Colombian company.
Project 4: Speaker from International Business-The students listen to a presentation by an international businessman who works with data. After the lecture, the students pick a topic discussed in the lecture to investigate a little further.
Project 2: Data Ethics
The students can discuss different aspects of data privacy.
Project 3: Company Valuation
