|Learning Outcome:||A study project is an interdisciplinary problem oriented study unit. Within the study project, a selected topic can be studied in detail by the students. Main scope of the study project is the development of problem-solving skills by means of information gathering, social interaction within a team, and communication of the results. Students will be able to:
- Organize scientific research with respect to data acquisition, analysis and presentation.
- Apply theoretical knowledge acquired in more formal classes to applied cases.
- Write elaborated scientific essays as a preparation for the Master-thesis.
- Give professional presentations and contribute to an advanced scientific discussion.
|Contents:||The content of the class will be announced at the notice board of the supervising chair or in myBTU.|
|Forms of Teaching and Proportion:||
|Teaching Materials and Literature:||In study projects, all possible learning methods are combined. However, the self-organized studies should make up more than 50 % of the total workload. Students are encouraged to development a specific plan for their study project prior to the start of the project. Study projects are preferably carried out in groups of 3-8. Study projects involving only a single student only should be the exception.
Teaching material is provided in the course of the module.
|Assessment Mode:||Assessment of a study project is based on the project report. The project report should contain all necessary factual information about the work in the project (essays, presentations, protocols etc.). It should also contain an overview of the individual workload of each single participant, in order to judge his/her contribution to the overall success of the project.|
