Description

Learning Objectives:
Autonomous scientific working as a preparation for the master-project and -thesis. Students should become capable of compiling, comprehensibly presenting, and appropriatly writing down a topic. This especially includes handling literature thoroughly, presenting techniques, making use of various presentation tools, and scientific writing. This is to ensure that students learn the essential technical and methodical requirements to write a master-thesis already during their seminar for the master-project.

Prerequisites
Basic knowledge of Human-Computer Interaction, e.g. by having attended the lecture “Human-Computer Interaction” or “Computer Graphics and Interactive Systems”.

Learning Content
At the beginning of the class topics will be contracted out to participants. Topics will be with close regards to content and task to the individually selected master-project in human-computer interaction (see related class description). Due to this students will perform theoretical preparatory work to the master-project. The seminar for the master-project is to be simultaneously accomplished during the 1st part of the master-project. Topics will be presented approximatly in the middle of the semester as part of a colloquium that is visited by participants of the master-project. Participants will be required to present their working progress regularly. The seminar will be accompanied by the groupware-system BSCW, that is, documents will be saved in the BSCW, personal supervision will be augmented by groupware-technologies, and electronical communication between all participants should be initiated.

Remarks:
Classes do not take place each week. Rather, participants are supervised on an individual basis through dedicated lecturers. At the end of the project one will have to present his findings to an audience.
