(This is a procedure information. German version below)

Procedure for Scientific Writing Course and Exam

Each Guided Project Type A has a component “Scientific Writing”. The credits are distributed as such:

  • 8 CP: software or business related part (the “B” part, so to say)
  • 5 CP: team processes / coaching part (the “A” part)
  • 1 CP: Scientific Writing

Scientific writing will be taught once a year, in winter semester. The course material is available in ILIAS (*** Link to be added ***). Course attendance is voluntary. There is a mandatory oral exam with Profs. Bente and Westenberger, which can be taken twice a year:

  • Winter semester: immediately after the 2nd part of the Scientific Writing course, usually in November.
  • Summer semester: in the first exam period, around end of July.

Exception for this semester (SS2017)

As the first exam period is already (nearly) over, participants in SS17 GP-A projects do have two options:

  1. Prepare by self study. We will offer an exam date in the 2nd exam period (Sep/Okt, date yet to be announced)
  2. Attend the Scientific Writing course in WS17, and use the exam date then (as of current planning: some time in 27.11.-01.12.,  Profil2 week)

Verfahren für Kurs und Prüfung “Scientific Writing”

Jedes Guided Project Typ A hat eine Komponente “Scientific Writing”. Die CP verteilen sich wie folgt:

  • 8 CP: der fachliche (Software / Business) Teil (der “B”-Teil, sozusagen)
  • 5 CP: Teamprozesse / -coaching (der “A”-Teil)
  • 1 CP: Scientific Writing

Scientific writing wird einmal im Jahr als Kurs angeboten, im Wintersemester. Das Kursmaterial ist in ILIAS verfügbar (*** Link folgt ***). Die Teilnahme am Kurs ist freiwillig. Es gibt eine verpflichtende mündliche Prüfung mit den Professoren Bente und Westenberger. Diese findet zwei Mal im Jahr statt:

  • Wintersemester: unmittelbar nach dem zweiten Teil des Scientific-Writing-Kurses, normalerweise im November.
  • Sommersemester: in der ersten Prüfungsphase, um Ende Juli.

Ausnahme für dieses Semester (SS2017)

Da die erste Prüfungsphase (nahezu) vorbei ist, haben die Teilnehmer der SS17-GP-A-Projekte zwei Möglichkeiten:

  1. Vorbereitung im Selbststudium. Wir werden ein Prüfungsdatum in der zweiten Prüfungsphase anbieten (Sep/Okt, genaues Datum wird noch bekanntgegeben)
  2. Teilnahme am Scientific-Writing-Kurs im WS17, und dann die Prüfung unmittelbar danach. (Aktuelle Planung: in der Profil2-Woche, 27.11.-01.12.)
