Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

The seminar for master students aims to provide students a space to present their ongoing thesis work, and to receive feedback. In particular, students are asked to address problems and challenges they are facing at the current stage of their work, and to share and discuss them in class.

Students work in small groups with their respective supervisors. They present and discuss their work and progress in these small groups. In addition, there will be four plenary units with all participating students, dedicated to discussing cross-lying issues of the thesis process.

Assessment and permitted materials

Course Assessment
To pass the seminar, students are expected to complete the following tasks:

For the plenary units, prepare one slide and a three minute presentation of your thesis, and write to papers (750 to 1500 words) related to a specific assignment.
For the group units, agree with your supervisor on at least two writing tasks (this is done in the first group unit); write, present and discuss them in the group.
Comment on one or two texts and/or presentations of your group colleagues.
Read all texts written by your group colleagues.
Productively engage in the discussion.
For those doing their first master seminar, one of the group presentation is expected to be an expose of the thesis project.
For those doing their second master seminar, a required assignment in the course is to hand in a complete first draft of the empirical chapter of their thesis. One or both group assignments can be part of this. Latest deadline for the complete empirical chapter draft is September 30th.

'This course uses the plagiarism-detection service Turnitin for larger assignments.'
