The folder containing the final version of your papers is now available on our Moodle website.
The aim of the course is to present, discuss and improve your work in progress. While the central goal of the course is to enable you to enhance the substantive dimension of your research, three further aspects will also be in focus: presentation skills (ability to succinctly and accurately express ideas orally), analytical skills (handling complex arguments, and understanding your strong and weak points), and commentating skills (giving constructive and useful criticism). You all are expected to act as a commentator on other papers within a session and actively participate in discussions. Hence, it is crucial you will be aware of each other work.
See you next week.
