Abstract

This course is aimed on increasing students' awareness in their master dissertations development, and skills in time management. The course consists of an introductory class that focuses on certain issues related to research discussion, and a session for presentation of students' master thesis and getting a feedback. This course consists of an introductory class that focuses on (1) certain issues related to research and (2) relevant academic research articles. In the rest of the course, students will (1) begin to work on their master’s thesis, (2) receive feedback on their work, and (3) give feedback to another student on the master’s thesis of this other student.
