The students need to write up a document in which they specify the focus, research question, approach, structure, and working plan for their master thesis and later improve their project according to feedback from faculty and peers.
In addition, every student will provide structured feedback on another thesis project and write up a "lessons learned" document.
The course design resembles professional reviewing processes that is run in academia when scholars submit their papers to scientific journals for potential publication. It is a great format for giving authors input on their papers. Thus, it is a great format for giving you input on the students' master thesis project.
