Oral examination

The topic of the examination will be the theoretical and practical work in the course. Thus, the experiences from working with the BA students, as you have expressed and discussed it in the essays, form the core of what we will discuss. The topics of the essay as they are listed below will be important topics in the oral examination, but we will use your essays to focus the discussion. It is also good if you are able to link to readings, from the list below as well as beyond, and general experiences you may have.

Essay

Each student will write a 5–10 page essay in German or English about the work with their group of BA students covering the following topics:

  • The topic of the BA students’ group project and its main results
  • Your evaluation of the quality of the BA students work
    • methodology
    • process
    • results
  • Reflexions on the modelling practice of the BA students
    • what are the models showing?
    • what are the objects they are modelling?
    • discuss the relationships between models and modelled objects
    • outline some successes and failures in the modelling process
    • what did the practice of modelling mean to the students?
    • what did the students learn from this?
  • Your evaluation of your own role
    • links to agile methods generally and scrum specifically
    • was it actually useful for the BA students that you were there?
    • what did you learn from the process?

Please link to the theory outlined below but also, if and how it makes sense, to previous experiences you have, as a student, in paid or voluntary work, and in other settings.

Deadline

The deadline is Monday July 24. The reason for this specific date is partly that writing the essay will give you a better starting point for the meeting with James Smithies on Wednesday the same week. It also means that I can skim through your essays and convey some point to him before the meeting.

If you have problems with the deadline please let me know as soon as you can.
