Credit points

To obtain credit points for participation in this seminar, it is necessary to attend the seminar regularly (sign the list after the seminar) and to write an essay about one of the seminars. Any seminar (except the last two in the term) can be chosen. The essay should be about 3 pages long und should be written in the style of a report/summary of the presentation. It should also include a summary of the main points of the discussion. We prefer essays in English. The essay should be handed in (as a file and in printed form) to the host of the seminar speaker (as listed on the webpage), who will go over it and return it to you with comments. The host of this particular seminar will then send an email to the person responsible for the credit points of the seminar, informing him whether the essay was acceptable or not. An unacceptable essay can be repeated on another occasion.

It is possible to obtain credit points for the Institutskolloqium more than once. To do so, a "Studienvertrag" has to be produced, which needs to be signed by Dieter Ebert at the beginning of the term.
