Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung
Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel
Student’s efforts will be evaluated on the basis of brief, but substantial presentations, written answers to questions, and participations in discussions.
Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab
In order to complete that course successfully, students are required 1) to provide a short presentation of their answers prepared for one particular meeting. 2) to provide answers to all questions for every meeting in writing and hand them in by the end of the term. And 3) to contribute in a lively manner to discussions at all classes. The quality of talks and written answers will be evaluated on the basis of completeness, clarity of argument, logical reasoning, and precision. Answers have to be formulated in complete sentences and are not acceptable if stated in keywords only. Answers do not necessarily have to be correct but have to form an argument. Lively participations in discussions will be particularly honoured. Grades will be jointly and individually determined with students on the basis of suggestions made by me. If students cannot agree to those suggestions, they are invited to have an additional discussion with me on an individual basis and on the basis of their written answers. These additional discussions have the form of genuine discussions and not exams and can take place in terms of physical meetings or in digital form.
