Description

This course introduces students to academic research by engaging them in ongoing research projects of LUC staff members. Students are invited to participate within various stages of a project, ranging from the set-up or the application for research grants, over the gathering of data and the drafting of findings, to the final polishing of a text and preparing it for publication.

Clinics

Students can take a research clinic towards the completion of their elective space. Please find an overview below.

Course objectives

After having successfully completed this course, students will have be proficient in one or more of the following course objectives to be able to :

  • formulate research questions and structure a collective project;
  • draft and revise an academic text of high quality;
  • utilize specific research skills and methodologies in the context of a larger research question,
  • cooperate in a research team.

As such, this course provides excellent preparation for students’ Capstone projects as well as later academic research at graduate or post-graduate level.

Timetable

Once accepted for a clinic, students should check with the clinic coordinator about meeting times.

Mode of instruction

Each student is expected to meet with her/his project leader regularly to discuss her/his progress, receive feedback on earlier work, ask questions and outline further assignments.

Individual project leaders may require additional meetings during which students can be asked to give presentations to all project participants. Project leaders may also ask students to attend specialist lectures, seminars or conferences – insofar as relevant for the project.

Important: students are expected to keep a log of their activities, detailing per hour spent on the project what they have accomplished.

Assessment

Participation during research clinic meetings
Weekly assignments
Keeping a research log

Note that all assignments as well as the final grade for the clinic will be stated as Pass/Fail.

Blackboard

There will be a Blackboard site available for this course. Students will be enrolled at least one week before the start of classes.

Registration

This course is open to LUC students and LUC exchange students. Registration is coordinated by the Curriculum Coordinator. Interested non-LUC students should contact course.administration@luc.leidenuniv.nl.
