Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
There are up to two on-site meetings planned, apart from the introductory class and an exam which are also planned to be held in class. This is subject to the further changes of the COVID-related situation and consequently the requirements imposed by the University of Vienna. In case of increasing risk of infections, the whole course will be held exclusively online.
If the attendance of the on-site sessions is not possible for the reasons related to the student's situation, this should be communicated to the instructor before the session.
Each student is strongly encouraged to participate in online discussions. Attendance is registered via an online tool and the participation is evaluated through the public chat function in the webinar tool. The participation is an important part of evaluation.
Students are strongly advised to read the assigned material from the reference books and articles, and to express opinions, comments, and insights relative to the discussion topic.
The overall level of students' knowledge is tested at an open-questions exam taking part at the end of the semester.
