Each student who wants to get a grade (either via term paper or oral exam) will have to give a presentation (min. 30 minutes) alone or in a group up to four. In case of a group presentation of three or four members, the presentation may last up to 45 minutes. The (informal) presentation should provide a summary of the assigned core reading (available at Moodle: https://moodle.uni-jena.de), supplementary literature, a critical analysis and reflection, as well as further thoughts and discussion questions.
The group or the single student will lead the discussion. The class will begin with a brief introductory lecture by the professor on the day’s topic that will also link back to the previous week’s discussions. The class will then be turned over to the presenter(s) who will further elaborate on the current theme.
Presentations may be illustrated with ppt-slides, videos, and other media. Students leading class discussion may also want to provide class members with a handout.
For further info, please consult the seminar’s teaching assistant (“Tutorin”) Maria Pfeiffer at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Term papers can be written in either English or German. Oral exams: ditto.
