Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to support critical reflection upon the current state of the master thesis, stimulate discussion, clarify open questions, and highlight new perspectives for working on the thesis. Students are expected to prepare a short presentation of the current state of the master thesis (approx. 15-20 min) (note: a presentation is expected no matter if students are still in a very early stage of their project or almost finished). Current challenges are discussed on the basis of the presentation. Additionally, the basics of scientific writing and research methods will be addressed.

Subject of course

Discussing presentations and current challenges of master thesis students is at the core of the course. Thus, it is helpful not to prepare a “perfect” presentation, but to address doubts and open questions during the presentation. Additionally, the course introduces basics through core lectures. Discussions in small group as well as exercises for reflection facilitate experience-based learning.
