Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab
Analytical and practical skills
More specifically, the course aims to provide knowledge and understanding of various theoretical models, conceptual frameworks and their methodological consequences for the description and analysis of health care policies in the context of the welfare state. In addition, students will improve their analytical and writing skills in the course paper. Towards the end of the course, students will be able to train their skills in effective argumentation, including attention for the structure of argument, clarity of speech, contact with the audience and conciseness.
The brief introductory lectures address topics and objectives outlined below, often drawing on literature beyond the mandatory reading list. The lectures will take on a more or less interactive format and are intended to familiarize students with both established and more recently developed approaches to health policy analysis. Students are encouraged to bring in examples and questions of their own to shape the discussion. In addition, students are encouraged to follow current affairs concerning health politics and policy.
Weekly assignment: In order to facilitate a more participatory mode of instruction, students are required to submit two questions prior to each session. Each week, a selection of questions will form starting points for the discussions in the seminar based on the compulsory literature. Please send them to the instructor latest by Sunday noon (12.00). You may fail to do so twice. In case you fail to submit questions more than twice, you will be given the opportunity to compensate with writing an essay of 800 words (+/- 10%) on a topic that the instructor will assign to you.
A reading list will be posted on Moodle. Readings will include (a) scientific articles and (b) book chapters.
For environmental and economical reasons, access to readings is organized as follows: The list will include DOI (stable links) to literature available online. Book chapters will be distributed separately during the first meeting.
