Prepare for each webinar by studying the assigned pre-study material posted in MyCourses. Learning on this course builds heavily on webinar discussions based on the pre-study materials. Participate actively in the webinars (sli.dos, breakout sessions, etc).
2. Hosting a webinar
Webinar is done in teams of 1-3. Own topic. 20-25 mins for content and interaction + 5-10 mins for free q&a). ABSOLUTE MAXIMUM TIME INCLUDING Q&A: 30MIN!
You need to also assign a pre-assignment (reading(s), video(s) a small task, etc.) for your own webinar. Send the study material to Ville(firstname.lastname@example.org) 7 days before your webinar presentation, and Ville will send it out to everyone.
Webinar evaluation: Following areas will be evaluated (each with same weight)
Quality of the content
Clarity of the presentation
Interaction with the audience (interaction quality)
Audience will also fill a small feedback form (quantitative) after each webinar. This won't affect the grade directly, it is just a signal on how the audience perceives the quality of your webinar. Everyone can see the results of this poll (but the individual votes are anonymous, of course).
Note: 1 person teams will have slightly reduced requirements in terms of evaluation (also, the webinar can be a bit shorter). Similarly, for the 3 person team I will have a little higher expectations, and the webinar must slightly longer.
3. Writing a literature review (DL 29.5. - end of course)
No turnitin submission needed. Normal submission will be used (updated 7.4.).
Literature review (academic style and 3500-4500 words) of an IDBM-specific topic. Individual task.
The review can be a stand-alone paper, or theoretical framework and rationale for your Master’s thesis research study. Literature review includes a critical analysis of the relationship among multiple different articles on the selected topic. In this course, the task should also include insights from an interview with (minimum one) industrial professional.
Literature review is submitted through mycourses.
