Interdisciplinary Final Theses Workshop "Construction Kit" (BA, MA, Magister, Diplom, Staatsexamen)

The interdisciplinary workshop aims at supporting you while planning and writing your final theses. Particular attention will be paid to techniques that help you organize and enjoy your writing (process); stylistic aspects, however, will take a back seat to substantial steps of paper-writing. You will be given lots of opportunities to try out techniques in order to expand your repertoire of writing strategies. Reflecting upon one’s own writing is just as important and will be combined with an exchange of ideas amongst participants.

 Contents:

  • writing strategies
  • writing (behavior) reflection
  • exercises against writer’s block
  • techniques for brainstorming and structuring
  • time management
  • individual steps in the academic writing process
  • narrowing down a topic and finding a research question
  • reading specialist literature, running excerpts, using literature
  • revising and editing
  • providing mutual text feedback  

Language: The workshop will be held in German.

INFO/COMMENT: This workshop takes place every other month. Please note that there are also subject-specific workshops for final theses (currently for STEM subjects).
