Inhalte der LV

Students specify the focus, structure, and working plan for their master thesis and later improve its framing according to feedback from faculty and peers. In addition to presenting her/his own project, every student will provide structured feedback on another presentation.

Lernergebnisse (Learning Outcomes)

The course enables students to

  • Present and explain a research proposal or (work-in-progress) research project

  • Take and build on comments from a critical audience

  • Review and evaluate someone else’s research project

Regelung zur Anwesenheit

As this course format heavily relies on personal interaction between students and faculty, presence in sessions is mandatory. More than two times absence during the sessions announced at the beginning of the seminar will lead to exclusion from the seminar.


Participants and faculty meet in four sessions all of which are mandatory. Every student will present her/his work once. Depending on the phase of their project, students present their thesis proposal or thesis draft (work in progress), defend their approach and results, and discuss learnings and implications with peers. In addition to presenting one’s own project, every student will provide constructive feedback (incl. a short visual presentation) on another presentation. Beyond that, peers and faculty provide feedback in a plenary discussion. Every student writes up a brief essay that summarizes the lessons learned.
