Lectures, discussions based on reading, as well as individual supervision will constitute the bulk of course activities.
The course consists of 4 lecture sessions and four exercise sessions along with individual supervision of a written assignment.
During the semester students will be asked to hand in four assignments that will form the base for the term paper as well as guide individual supervision. These assignments will address topics such as the formulation of research question and justification, literature review and methodology.
This is a graduate level course and as such, all students are expected to attend the sessions and fully participate in group exercises, come prepared (having done the reading, bringing it to class, and being ready to participate in discussion), and be working at a serious level commensurate with a graduate education.
All students should be familiarized with the ITU’s academic conduct & plagiarism policy (available online at the university website). If in doubt as to what constitutes appropriate quoting and citation practices you should speak with the professor. Note that you are also not allowed to dual-submit work (i.e. submitting the same paper, project, etc. for grading in more than one course at any time). Any violation of the university policy on academic integrity will result in disciplinary action.
Students will be responsible for conducting an original piece of research that will form the basis of their final paper.
