Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The KO takes up and reflects the topics of the lecture '230153 Politics of Innovation and its Institutional Dimensions: Central Issues, Questions and Concepts' and gives time to discuss in-depth its main questions about concepts of innovation. It will do so along concrete practical examples, mostly in the framework of teamwork-based debate.
The discussion class engages with the issues of the lecture class through debating the texts or policy documents that are indicated for this date and a field trip.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

To pass the discussion class, students are expected to:
- prepare each session by reading the respective text(s), preparing two questions for the discussion and posting them on Moodle before the lecture.
- participate actively in group works and discussions.
- hand in the essay (via e-mail to lisa.sigl@univie.ac.at and on Moodle (Deadline: 14th February 2016)).
- chair a discussion: for each class, a group of students will be assigned to lead the discussion based on the reading of the texts and group work.
- adhere to the general standards of good academic practice.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

Grading Scheme
The grading of the course is based on the separate assessment of different tasks on a scale of 1-5. The relative weight of each task in relation to the overall grade is:
Preparation and active participation in the discussion of all sessions: 35 %, assessed individually
Lead of a discussion: 25 %, assessed as group work
Delivery of assignments on time, meeting the formal criteria: 5 %, assessed individually
Essays: structure, line of reasoning, originality, language: 35 %, assessed individually

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 result in a deduction of points.

Acceptance of any assignments (Essays) implies compliance with the following requirements:
- Citations are always marked and referred to in the bibliography at the end of a text
- No unauthorized copying or pirating of existing texts; plagiarism will not be tolerated!
- Cover sheet must include course title and number, name, student ID, title of assignment/topic and date
- Style: A4 paper, 11 point font, 1 1/2 line spacing, page numbers in footer, author name and text title in header
- Proofreading and language checks before submission of texts

Attendance
Presence and participation is compulsory. An absence of two hours (= 1 discussion class session) at maximum is tolerated, provided that the teaching assistants are informed about the absence. Absences of up to four hours in total may be compensated by either a deduction of points or/and extra-work agreed with the lecturer. Whether compensation is possible is decided by the lecturer.
Absences of more than four hours in total cannot be compensated. In this case, or if the lecturer does not allow a student to compensate absences of more than two hours, the course can not be completed and is graded as a ‘fail’ (5), unless there is a major and unpredictable reason for not being able to fulfil the attendance requirements 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 lecturer.

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 lecturer.
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.
