Module Paper Workshop

On 4 December 2020, the new round of our Module Paper Workshop will begin. A small group of students will be supported and accompanied in writing a (module) paper in English. Students of all disciplines are welcome to join.

We will meet four times on zoom. Between the meetings and after the workshop you can get individual advice on your writing process and your text. The course is supplemented by material on Moodle and is held in English.

You will get to know various methods and apply them to your own scientific text. We will talk, among other things, about finding and narrowing down the topic, writing techniques, motivation, organization of the individual writing process, the scientific style and revision.


The dates of the meetings are: 4 and 18 December 2020 as well as 8 and 22 January 2021.
The workshop will take place on Zoom from 10 a.m. (sharp) to 1 p.m.


Sign up here if you meet the following requirements:

  1. You can write a specific (module) paper during the following two to three months.
  2. You have a broad topic and a supervisor for your paper until 4 December. (During our first meeting we will use techniques for narrowing down the topic and finding a research question.)
  3. You will most likely be able to attend all four meetings.


Please contact Carolin Ganzer if…

… you have questions about the course.
… the course is booked but you would still like to participate.
… you don’t have the technical means for video conferencing.

We regularly offer workshops during the semester break for working on and writing academic texts. We publish information about topics, dates, locations, and registration instructions when classes end at the end of each semester on our German-language website. Due to the current situation, all workshops are cancelled during the semester break.

All workshops are held in German. Please refer to the German website for further information!
