Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The goal of this course is to critically discuss the master theses written at the Department of Economics, and to provide valuable feedback that helps students improve their research and writing skills.

In view of the uncertainty surrounding the evolution of covid-19, at the moment (late August) I can only describe a contingent plan for the course’s format. The plan maximizes the amount of physical presence subject to two principles: i. Defense of the interests of students who, in the context of covid-19, might be high-risk patients or might not be allowed in Austria. ii. Respect of the University’s regulations.

1. If all students can attend and the class-room can accommodate all students with the required social distance, the course will be taught with physical presence.

2. If not all students can attend, the class-room can accommodate the rest of them and has the required equipment, the format will be hybrid: I will teach both for students in the class-room and online (synchronously) via Collaborate or equivalent.

3. If the class-room cannot accommodate all students but has the required equipment, I will divide the students than can attend in groups and do as in 2, with one group in the class-room and the rest online (synchr.). Groups will take turns in the class-room.

4. If the class-room does not have the required equipment and the circumstances in 1 do not hold (or should we all be sent home as in the 2020S) I will teach online (synchr.).

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Students will have to give two presentations during the semester. In the first one, they will present their research proposals, which should include the planned research questions, the planned methodology (theoretical or empirical), data sources, etc. In the second one, they will present the (preliminary) results of their theses. This second presentation can only be held if the supervisor confirms one week prior to the presentation that the thesis is ready to be presented, which means that approximately 60% of the work has to be finished.
After each research proposal presentation, all students are expected to give feedback to the presenter. By the second half of the semester, each student must submit (via e-mail) a document that summarizes the main feedback she/he has received on her/his own research proposal presentation. One week prior to the presentation, each student must also submit a document that explains how the feedback was incorporated into the thesis (or why it was not incorporated). This document has to be shared with both the instructor and the supervisor.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

To guarantee a lively environment where students can get valuable feedback on their work, attendance of every meeting is absolutely mandatory. The minimum requirement to pass is to be present at 8 Meetings minimum, give both presentations, and hand in the feedback document in time.
