Adapted Teaching Format
In order to comply with COVID-19 safety measures, the teaching for this course is adapted in order to facilitate presence teaching. In the case that more than 15 students registered for the course, students will be randomly assigned to either Group A or Group B. Group A will attend a weekly workshop at 14.45-15.45; Group B will attend a re-run of the same workshop in the timeslot 16.00-17.00. It is imperative that you get to these workshops in a timely manner. In addition, all students are expected to actively engage with learning content produced each week by their colleagues and by the lecturer on Moodle.

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung
Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel
• As part of a group, develop a video presentation summarising the readings for one of the classes (topic to be assigned by the lecturer), and moderate online discussion of this presentation.
• As a group, develop a research expose for your case.
• Write an essay (of approximately 1.500 words) in which you apply two of the theoretical approaches discussed in class to a specifc topic or case, comparing what these each allow you to see.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab
• Presentation: 30 points, assessed as a group.
• Research expose: 20 points, assessed as a group.
• Essay: 40 points, assessed individually.A minimum of 50 points is necessary to successfully complete the course. 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.Presence and participation is compulsory. A maximum of two classes during the semester can be missed provided that the lecturer is informed about the absence beforehand. Absences of up to four classes in total may be compensated by either a deduction of grading points or/and extra work agreed with the lecturer. Whether compensation is possible is decided by the lecturer.Further absences cannot be compensated. In this case, or if the lecturer does not allow a student to compensate absences of more than two classes, the course cannot 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.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.
