During the entire semester points for several tasks can be achieved which affords following advantages:- Workload is distributed equally among the entire semester- Evaluation does not only represent a snap-shot.- Learning methods can be adapted during the semester.- Students take responsibility on their own towards their learning outcomes and an individual scope of action is granted- Encouragement of independent research and work - Encouragement of writing a term paper independentlyTotal score: 100 pointsThis course consists of the following partial performances:Partial Performances Points Bonus PointsOnline exam: compulsory literature 10 Questionnaires 12 Online exercise: SDG Mapping 10 Term paper 50 5Peer-Feedback 8 Presentation/Pitch 10 5Total 100 10Grading keyPointsGrade 1100-90Grade 289-80Grade 379-70Grade 469-60Grade 5≤ 59 Teaching methods •Blended learning approach•Lecture format: key note speeches, activating teaching and learning methods •Work packages & exercises:–Compulsory literature: basic understanding of current trends in the packaging industry, serves as preparation for key note speeches, encourages independent research and analysis of current trends for further problem identification and prospective solution proposals–Online-exam: exam about compulsory literature in Moodle–Questionnaire: Students prepare on their own individual questionnaires with up to 5 questions prior to key note speeches, which serve as basic research for their term paper–Online exercise: online exercise in Moodle about global trends in the packaging industry in conjunction with SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals)–Term paper: Students work individually on a self-elected or a predetermined topic including research, description, problem identification and solution proposals (trends, innovations) in the packaging industry by composing all findings in a term paper. This serves for a deep knowledge acquisition of current popular topics in the packaging industry as well as for a deep dive along the value chain. Furthermore, it facilitates structure and constitution of a scientific paper. For detailed information regarding structure of a term paper please see “DO_PTS_Guide for the preparation of a seminar paper” in Moodle. –Peer-Feedback: Evaluation and critical review of one term paper of a fellow student via Moodle. Selection will take place via a random generator. –Presentation/Pitch: individual 5 minutes pitch presentation about own term paper including topic introduction, description of current situation, problem identification and proposals for potential solutions/innovations for the according field of the packaging industry. Selection of various support material for presentation and visualization is at your own choice (PPT, Flip-Chart, poster, video, etc.). This part mainly encourages preparation, structure, creativity and advancement of presentation techniques for pitches / key note speeches.
