Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This seminar engages with the practical aspects of searching, storing and presenting literature. The course will provide insight into the basic standards, norms and techniques of scientific practices in the social sciences. You will acquire a range of practical skills to conduct and organise your research. These include how to engage with a specific topic, knowing how (and why) to cite literature, doing literature research and reviews, and engaging with tools to organise and archive your references. We will identify the central publication media within the field of STS and you will be introduced to the services provided by the university library. You will also learn about different tools and techniques to present and communicate your data orally and in written form for different purposes and audiences. You will work individually as well as collaboratively and also assess and reflect upon your personal strengths and contributions while working within a group. This includes being able to give productive but critical feedback to your peers. In order to introduce you to some of the theoretical considerations of STS in regard to its own knowledge production, we will critically reflect together on the practical consequences of the used tools and techniques and how they might impinge on the output you produce.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

To pass the seminar, students are expected to complete the following tasks:
- Participate actively during discussions and practical exercises
- Read the mandatory literature
- Hand in the following written individual assignments on time: 1) A reading card on a text related to the group work and a bibliography containing ten sources 2) Feedback on the reading card and bibliography of a peer 3) One personal reflection on the group working process;
- Hand in the following written group assignments on time 1) A first draft of the literature review of the research exposé 2) A report on using the chosen reference management software 3) The final research exposé as part of the case based learning approach
- As a group, prepare two general presentations on your case and a final presentation of your research exposé;
- Contribute to discussions in class and group work;
- Adhere to the general standards of good academic practice.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab

The grading scheme is based on a total of 100 points. These points will be awarded in relation to students’ performance in meeting the course learning aims in the different obligatory tasks.
The maximum number of points to be acquired for each task is: Participation (15 points): Preparation and active participation in the discussion of all sessions; Reflection note on the group work.

Written Individual Work (30 Points): 20 points reading card and bibliography; 10 points feedback on reading card of a peer.

Group Work (55 Points): 5 points general presentations of the case; 5 points reference management; 15 points first draft of literature review; 25 points final research exposé; 5 points presentation of research exposé.

Minimum requirements
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.

Grades
100-87 points Excellent (1)
86-75 points Good (2)
74-63 points Satisfactory (3)
62-50 points Sufficient (4)
49-0 points Unsatisfactory (5) (fail)

Attendance
Presence and participation is compulsory. Absences of four hours at maximum are tolerated, provided that the lecturer is informed about the absence. Absences of up to eight hours 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.
Absences of more than eight hours in total cannot be compensated. In this case, or if the lecturer does not allow a student to compensate absences of more than four hours, 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.
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.
