Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Grading scheme:
The grading of the course is based on the separate assessment of different tasks on a scale of 1-5.
Preparation and active participation in the discussion of all sessions: 35 %
Lead of a discussion: 25 %
Delivery of assignments on time, meeting the formal criteria (see requirements below): 5 %
Essays: structure, line of reasoning, originality, language: 35 %
To successfully complete the course, a weighted average of at least 4,5 is required.
Failure to meet the attendance regulations, to deliver course assignments on time or to adhere to standards of academic work may also be considered in the course assessment.
Important Grading Information:
If not explicitly noted otherwise, all requirements mentioned in the grading scheme and the attendance regulations must be met. If a required task is not fulfilled, e.g. a required assignment is not handed in or if the student does not meet the attendance requirements, this will be considered as a discontinuation of the course. In that case, the course will be graded as 'fail' (5), unless there is a major and unpredictable reason for not being able to fulfill the task on the student's side (e.g. a longer illness). In such a case, the student may be de-registered from the course without grading. It is the student’s responsibility to communicate this in a timely manner, and to provide relevant evidence to their claims if necessary. Whether this exception applies is decided by the vice-director of studies responsible for the master programme.
If any requirement of the course has been fulfilled by fraudulent means, be it for example by cheating at an exam, plagiarizing parts of a written assignment or by faking signatures on an attendance sheet, the student's participation in the course will be discontinued, the entire course will be graded as "not assessed" and will be entered into the electronic exam record as 'fraudulently obtained'. Self-plagiarism, particularly re-using own work handed in for other courses, will be treated likewise.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

The aim of the Discussion class is to discuss in-depth the main questions related to concepts of innovation and institutional dimensions of politics of innovation.

Prüfungsstoff

The class will follow basic principle of competence-oriented teaching: it starts with student’s own previous knowledge, observations and reflections about innovation. Discussions will be flexibly adapted to competencies of students and follow concrete practical examples (such as policy initiatives and documents); mostly in the framework of teamwork-based debate (in a variety of methods, including small group discussions and panel discussions).
