Further Information

Courses are together with exams the building blocks for modules. Please keep in mind that information on the contents, learning outcomes and, especially examination conditions are given on the module level only – see section "Assignment to Modules" above.

additional remarks This course develops both critical thinking and scientific writing skills. Critical thinking has been central to intellectual pursuits since Socrates elaborated the method 2,500 years ago and is a disciplined process of actively conceptualizing, analysing and applying information. Rather than merely understanding information, students on this course will learn to question and critique scientific writing before applying concepts to their own fields. To this end, students will encounter a variety of critical thinking models and techniques. The course also familiarises students with the formats and conventions of English-language scientific texts, e.g. articles, reports and theses, and enhances their mastery of key components of academic writing, e.g. style, grammar, register and argumentation.
