Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Reflecting our integrated teaching and learning concept, this course complements the seminar Political Systems in East Asia (Plümmer) in applying theoretical knowledge to specific cases in East Asia. This exercise course offers students the chance to develop and further practice essential research skills that are needed for the seminar’s term paper (and throughout their studies at EcoS). Participation in both courses simultaneously (= SE Political Systems in East Asia + UE Exercise Course Political Systems in East Asia in the same semester) is thus highly recommended!

Students are counselled in developing their individual research in the field of comparative politics and governance research. Therefore, requirements of academic research are discussed with particular focus on the criteria applied for student term papers at EcoS and in the seminar Political Systems in East Asia (Plümmer). From early in the semester, students are expected to familiarise with potential research areas and develop their own research questions and approach. Individual counselling sessions are scheduled to receive initial feedback. Later, students will also test their research approach during in-class presentations. A group of discussants will give feedback and initiate further discussion. Presentation topics/research questions must meet the requirements of the seminar Political Systems in East Asia (Plümmer), as the counselling and presentations are a direct preparation for student term papers in the seminar.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

• Individual assignment “literature review” (20%)
• Individual presentations and handouts (single A4 page) (50%)
• Feedback and discussion of presentations, written and in-class (20%)
• Attendance and active participation (10%)

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Positive grades (grade 4 or better) for all formal requirements as listed under “Assessment (Art der Leistungskontrolle)” are a minimum requirement for passing this course.

An interactive discussion and student participation are likewise integral to this course. Regular participation is thus mandatory. In case of absence, the following rule applies: The final grade remains unchanged for up to three individual absences (except for individual counselling, presentation, and discussant days). If students are absent four times, the final grade will be reduced by one full grade. If students are absent five times, the final grade will be reduced by two full grades. Students who are absent six or more times will fail the whole course.
Please note: To ensure a smooth proceeding of the course, be on time! Students who are late by more than 10 minutes will not be signed in on the attendance list (thus count as absent).

For the presentations, please upload your ppt and handout 24h in advance via Moodle. Unannounced (less than 48h in advance) absence on the day of your presentation results in an immediate fail of the presentation and thus the whole course.

Grading is based on a “continuous assessment of coursework” (“Prüfungsimmanente Lehrveranstaltung”). Repetition of individual assessment criteria, therefore, is not possible.

General Rules of Good Academic Practice apply. Non-compliance will result in legal measures according to the regulations of the University of Vienna. All written submissions via Moodle are subject to an automated plagiarism check.

All minimum requirements and assessment criteria will be discussed during the first class. By continuing this course, students accept all minimum requirements and assessment criteria. Attendance at the first class thus is mandatory. Absence at the first meeting will lead to automatic de-registration from this course.

Prüfungsstoff

See above.

Literatur

Students are required to independently research literature for their research and presentations.

For questions concerning the research process and citation style, "the Turabian" is a highly recommended companion from your first days of studying at EcoS:
Turabian, Kate L. (2018): A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers. Chicago: University of Chicago Press.
