Attendance and active class-room participation (10 %)
Expert for one week or session (30% of the grade) Participants have to prepare for an expert discussion in class, based on specific preparatory readings.
- Groups of experts will be assigned to a specific week, and a list of suggested readings.
- Based on these readings, instead of a full review, they hand in a list of questions to be discussed in class (2-3 questions per person), by e-mail, and a short elaboration on each of these questions/themes, max. 1 page per person. Ideally, the list of questions combines a) some theoretical aspects, b) methodological issues, and c) it refers to exemplary cases. Show how the questions/themes relate to the required readings. Reading lists can be altered, in agreement between the lecturer and the experts.
- In class, students will be require to respond to questions in a cohesive way, but do not prepare a linear presentation (see below). Approx. 8-10 minutes per person. The topic of the expert discussion can overlap with the topic of the paper, which the student writes in the second semester of the seminar.
- Expert discussions take place between week 3 and week 12.
- The list of questions needs to be submitted 11 days prior to the class (when the students serve as experts), and 24 hours prior to a preparatory meeting. (I.e. enrol for an office hour no later than 10 days before your ‘expert week’).
