Professor Arcadius' lesson plan and agenda are as follows:

Introduction of The Professor and His Courses
Will start with a short presentation about the professor, his nation and its culture, various other subjects pertaining to him, then will switch to his courses, including mechanical, aerospace, and electrical. This will last for about 15 minutes, and is not necessary to attend.

Designing Robots
Students will be tasked, with another student, using CAD, the students' ingenuity, and the instructions provided, with creating a robot. The robot should be able to do basic tasks such as picking up and dropping objects, as well as being able to move using minimal electricity to do all its required tasks. These robots may have 3D printed components, as well as using the provided materials. The robots will not be graded, but will be competing against each other. Whoever wins the competition will get 1000 credits monthly spending money for the year. In all, one hour will be provided to construct the robot, and 15 minutes for the competition.

Lesson About the uses of Engineering
Students will have a brief lesson on engineering in general, and its applications in the real world. Note taking is not required, but is highly suggested. This should take no more than 30 minutes, at which points, the students will be dismissed early.

I, Ms Freja Arshavina have prepared the following lesson plans for the first week:

Business
A short introduction (of myself, and the course) followed by a lecture on autocratic leadership and management styles, which will be broken up with several examples and peer discussions.
We shall also discuss the leadership styles of both Statminister Søndergaard of Sverinovo, and the Queen Ukari XVII of Ukarist.

This lesson will not require note-taking, but doing so can be beneficial to most learners.


Economics
A short introduction, followed by a basic outline of example national economic models, should last for the first 1 and a half hours. This will be followed by a group discussion on the merits and downfalls of the first model we shall study in detail, which is that of communism. For this there will be a look at both historical and modern models of this economic model.


Neither lesson is mandatory to attend, but I cannot stress enough the importance of the subjects and their applications. Business is often linked with giving an insight into the skills needed to be an effective leader, whereas economics will give all the necessary knowledge on the more specific subject, which is crucial to the running of any nation/region.
I hope to see all of those determined students there.

From Pr Greig,

Part of any potential leader's capabilites must be the ability to know how to react to situations where your life may be in danger. Yes, you will most likely have security or bodyguards, but do you know what to expect from them? Do you know how to best react to help them protect you?

My class will teach both basic self-defence techniques and the proper tactics and actions to take when faced with a threatening situation. It will include the best types of proactive protection, such as bodyguards, intelligence gathering and managing threats, and the best types of reactive defence, such as protective equipment, mixed martial arts and threat management tactics.

This will be a fully physical session with student interaction and, eventually, full body contact practice. Specific lesson activities will depend on the student, but I expect all to attend, even if just to spectate.

There will be additional practice in both close combat and firearms on a Saturday morning. This is not a lesson, but rather an opportunity for students to practice their skills in a controlled environment. Equipment available will be substantially more advanced that that used in the lesson.

Be safe. Attend.
