In order to pass this course students need to explain the material developed in their MA theses to a broad audience and to give valuable feedback on the presentations of others.
The course's grade evaluates own performance in the two presentations (each 1/3 of the final grade) and feedback on presentations of others (1/3 of the grade). After each presentation the presenter will receive an evaluation of his or her performance.
Attendance is mandatory.
Participants are also encouraged to give feedback to the presenter outside of the class.
Students must obtain a grade of at least 50% to pass the course. 50% - 60% implies a 4; 60% - 70% a 3; 70% - 85% a 2; above 80% a 1.
