Office hours during the term:

Before you come to talk to me about oral exams and term paper requirements, please read the information below carefully. Please also refer to my exam folder on OLAT. Come informed! And yes, you need two different topics for your final oral exam in M 10, 11, or 12!

Graded term papers (the 2nd copy) can be picked up in the secretary's office (F120). After you have looked carefully at my feedback, you are very welcome to discuss it with me in one of my office hours.

Please note: Student term papers (the 2nd copy) will be kept only for a maximum of two terms. After this period, they will be destroyed, so please pick them up as soon as possible.

 

As I am on a research sabbatical during the winter term, I will not offer regular office hours.

 

Of course, you can also contact me via e-mail, sending me questions, outlines, etc. Please note that I won't check my e-mails regularly during my research leave. Questions regarding formatting, citation, etc. for term papers can be independently answered (i.e., by yourself) by consulting the Anglistik style sheet!

 

Exams:

Before you come to me with any general questions concerning module exams, please refer to my exam folder on OLAT (click here ).

 Module 3 (B.Ed.): oral exam

Dr. Jody Skinner organizes this exam (dates, etc.). Please refer to the respective section on OLAT for information on registration etc.

Module 10, 11, 12 (M.Ed.): oral exam

If you are planning to take your oral exam in M 11 (or 10 or 12 should you have taken the course with me), contact me as soon as possible since dates for the oral exam cannot be given out on short notice. Please note that dates will be assigned and cannot be picked (although we try to accommodate your preferences).  Please note that you will need two different topics (with several primary texts each, plus secondary literature) for the oral exam. For information on contents, reading list, etc. please refer to the respective exam folder on OLAT. For the handouts, there is also a template available.

All other modules and written exams:

For all other exams (including written ones), refer to my exam folder on OLAT, which contains further information on the different modules and requirements (word count!!). Please use the latest Anglistik style sheet as a guide for questions regarding the format, citation, etc.

If you would like to have detailed feedback on your term paper, please hand in two copies of it (one for yourself and one for the Hochschulprüfungsamt to keep). If you need to have your grade for the term paper early, please notify me AND put a sticky note on top of your term paper with the date.

Please note: I will keep student term papers (the 2nd copy) only for a maximum of two terms. After this period, they will be destroyed, so please pick them up as soon as possible.

 

Thesis (Bachelor or Master):

Before I sign anything for the Hochschulprüfungsamt, you have to hand in an abstract in which you sketch the project, your argument, a tentative outline, and, most importantly, your working thesis. You will also have to write up a time frame for the project and add a list with the sources that you will use.

If I feel that the project is unsuitable (too vague, too large, etc.) or that it lacks focus (e.g., a thesis!) you will need to rewrite and revise the abstract. In other words, in most cases, I do not sign the HPA-form immediately. If you need to meet a deadline and require my signature before a specific date, come early and not on the same day.
