Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course aims to have students learn to communicate the contents of their MA to a broad audience, provide constructive feedback on other people's work, and gain useful input to make progress with their research.

The course is only for MA Econ students who have started to work on their MA thesis. Each student must present twice. The first presentation (10 min.) describes the main ideas and related literature of the MA thesis. The second presentation (15 - 20 min.) shows the results and added value and puts these in light of the literature.

Prior to the second presentation the advisor of the Masters’ thesis has to approve in writing to the instructor that at least 60% of the thesis has been completed. Having completed 60% of the thesis means that a central result has been obtained, that the detailed outline of the thesis is ready, and that the related literature has been summarized.

After each presentation each member of the audience has to be ready to give immediate feedback orally. (There will also be an online forum for giving immediate feedback.) Good feedback has two parts, praise and critique, and is based on the knowledge acquired in the MA Econ.s

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

In order to pass this course the student needs to explain the material developed in their Masters’ thesis to a broad audience and they need to be able to give valuable feedback on the presentations of others.

The course's grade evaluates own performance in the two presentations and feedback on presentations of others. After each presentation the presenter will receive an evaluation of his or her performance.

Attendance is mandatory.

Participants are also encouraged to give feedback to the presenter outside of the class.
