Course description

The aim of the course is that the course participants develop a critical and systematic understanding of the content and structure of scientific work, as well as its assessment grounds and procedures, with particular focus on doctoral theses and dissertations / licenses. The course will also give increased awareness and ability to analyze scientific conversations in seminar and dissertation form. The course is structured around final seminars and dissertations according to the following model: The course participants read and discuss theses from both the author's and the discussant's / opponent's perspective. The course participants are then present at the final seminar or the public defense. At a follow-up seminar, the final seminar / public defense is discussed with regard to both the opponent's and the respondent's discussion of the content of the thesis, and partly on how the opposition was structured and presented.

The course participants read the same theses and attend the same dissertation seminars. Dissertations at other faculties than the faculty of education can be the subject of reading and discussion.
