b) Reading all the obligatory literature and active involvement in discussions;
c) Oral presentation of text critique (approx 20 min per groups, depending on number of participants): read one of the texts of the seminar literature and criticize it. Start with a brief summary of the main arguments of the text, provide arguments why you liked or disliked the text, and make a connection to a recent case/ public debate etc.
d) Oral presentation of research project (approx. 30 min per group, depending on number of participants): Present your research project in groups. Formulate your research questions, use seminar literature to argue why your research questions are important, provide empirical work (e.g. analysis of a small selection of newspaper articles, online materials, interviews (1 or 2), experiments etc) and argue what your research project can contribute to the scientific community and the broader society.
e) Writing of short summary of your research project individually (1-2 pages, handed in via Moodle until 02.12.2018).
f) Writing of seminar paper (exposé of a research project including abstract [this can, but must not build on the project presented in class], 12-15 pages, handed in via Moodle until 15.02.2019).'This course uses the plagiarism-detection service Turnitin for larger assignments.'
Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab
The grading of the course is based on the separate assessment of different tasks on a scale of 1-5.Active contribution and involvement in discussions: 25%, assessed individually, no feedback envisaged;
Oral presentation of text critique and research project : 25%,
assessed as group work (or individually; depending on number of students), feedback by lecturer;
Short project summary & seminar paper/ exposé of research project: 45% , assessed individually, feedback on request;
Delivery of texts on time and formal criteria (citation, layout, ...):
5%, assessed individually, no feedback envisaged;Minimum requirements
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.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.
