Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

The aim of the discussion class is to give students the opportunity to read, discuss, and engage with the key texts related to the different lectures in the "Key questions and concepts". This should deepen the understanding of the concepts and issues addressed in the lecture class.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

The discussion class mainly builds on discussion and the active participation of all students. For each workshop one group of students will act as 'workshop leaders'. The distribution of tasks to the students will be done in the second unit.
A discussion workshop generally has three phases:
1) go through each text and discuss their key points; the lead discussants for the workshop should get the discussion going;
2) we connect the texts with the lectures, discuss additional questions emerging and elaborate the key issues to retain from them, i.e. what have we learned;
3) reflect on how the papers potentially relate to the cases;

To pass the discussion class, students are expected to:
1) Read the literature for the respective discussion workshop and;
2) Prepare for the discussion: analyse the paper(s) along the six questions (take short notes and upload them to moodle before the class; not all questions are equally relevant for each text):
a) What are the core questions that the text asks? Express them in your own words. 2-3 sentences.
b) What are the problems/tensions the text is pointing at?
c) What hypothesis/es does the text defend? Identify key passages.
d) What are core concepts/terms that the text operates with and that you identified as being important?
e) What is the empirical field addressed in the text?
f) Where did you meet problems when reading the text?
3) Participate actively in all the discussions.
4) Take a leadership role in the discussion at one of the workshops (role will be distributed at the start of the semester)
5) Write one short essay (2000 words) on the papers you were lead discussant. The essay should be handed in (uploaded on moodle) three weeks after the workshop presentation. A good essay has an introduction which points at the issues at stake, elaborates on the key-points of the papers, points to some elements where you did see connections the cases from the case based learning and draws a short conclusion.
6) Adhere to the general standards of good academic practice.
