Foundations of Research - 2: Conceptualization, Research Questions, Composition (3 ECTS)
The course offers PhD-candidates who are about halfway with their research the opportunity to have the complete lay-out of their project scrutinized by invited specialists in their field who are not their supervisors.
A close and critical look will be taken at research questions, the (first, provisional) analysis of research results, and the design of the dissertation in the making.
