Adapted Teaching Format
In order to comply with COVID-19 safety measures, the teaching for this course is adapted in order to facilitate presence teaching. In the case that more than 15 students registered for the course, students will be randomly assigned to either Group A or Group B. Each group will attend a physical class every other scheduled date (with Group A kicking off on 09.10.2020), while engaging every week with online content and discussion.
Aims, contents and method of the course
Assessment and permitted materials
• As part of a group, develop a video presentation summarising key themes concerning one of the course topics (topic to be assigned by the lecturer).
• Submit a reflexive essay (approximately 2000 words) where they describe one or more interviews they have carried out over the course of the class, and reflect on their experiences of these.
Minimum requirements and assessment criteria
• Presentation: 40 points, assessed as a group.
• Essay: 40 points, assessed individually.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.Presence and participation are 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.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.
