Proseminar II

level of course unit

second cycle, Master

Learning outcomes of course unit

The students expand their knowledge of the courses of the current semester by discussing the contents of the course in detail, therefore consolidating their knowledge. In addition, stu-dents use the course to develop subject-specific content of the semester beyond the scope of the individual courses and to network across courses. This also serves to strengthen the students' ability to reflect in an interdisciplinary context and to develop their problem-solving skills.

prerequisites and co-requisites

Active reflection of the course content taking place during the semester with regard to indi-vidual knowledge deficits and options of advancing the contents

course contents

The content of the course is based on the course contents of the current semester, especially the topics of architecture, cloud and e-business. The following objectives are pursued during the coaching model and are worked on in small groups:

1) Strengthening the ability to reflect by considering the course contents of the semester in an interdisciplinary context to further consolidate and clarify open questions. This can be done, for example, using further exercises or workshop-like formats.

2) Deeper development of problem-solving competence by specializing/networking of subject areas across different courses, which are dealt with in an in-depth work, therefore providing further insights for the students; if necessary, also preparatory work for their own knowledge. Work, e.g. in preparation for the Master thesis. In this seminar, the focus lies on topics related to development and engineering, as well as web-based systems.

3) Linking practical information from the profession with your own knowledge. Own work: Enabling the connection of practical work-related experience from the students' field of activi-ty with the contents of the courses of the semester in the form of a more systematic/scientific form, which, similar to point 2, leads to a preparation of one's own knowledge.
