Course objectives
The presentation of the results of the dissertation project has the form of a public lecture attended by at least 3 members of the Doctoral Board. The student will present preliminary results of the dissertation project in the form of a public lecture addressed to other students and educators. Preliminary results are typically results of the data collection and analyses included in the prepared dissertation thesis. The course should be completed by the end of the 6th semester of study. If the student already produced their own publications related to the dissertation work, this can also be presented. The choice of the language of the presentation is at the discretion of the student. Two weeks prior the presentation, the student is required to submit a research report (12-15 pages) summarising the presented results. After the presentation, the research report (written in the language of the presentation) is reviewed by two selected teachers, followed by a discussion among the participants of the seminar. The purpose of the course is twofold. It provides feedback to new students and also familiarizes other students with the dissertation topics of their colleagues.
