Abstract

Publish or Perish has arrived in China and for students it is more imperative than ever that they learn how to design their own projects and present their research. This paper presents a student centered project based method for teaching professional paper writing. In this course students will conduct two simple experiments and then using an IEEE template to write a paper to present their research. In order to increase student participation the course employs fortnightly tutorials that employ the student’s writing as the main text. The first paper is practice as student choose a topic from Game Theory. The Second Paper is production as the topic is chosen by the students. Through the two papers students gain knowledge of both how to develop the different sections of a paper and the appropriate language to use. The paper ends with a discussion of ways to increase the effectiveness of each of critical feedback and the operation of the tutorials.
