A key task for students in the course “Organizing in Times of Crisis: The Case of Covid19” will be to write a research essay at the very end of the course. Reflecting on all they have learnt, the essay shall focus on one issue and deliver one point of insight gathered throughout the course. The mini lecture by Leonhard Dobusch on “How to Essay” focuses on the difference between research essays and seminar papers and offers a brief introducion on writing research essays.
This blog will offer updates on the course “Organizing in Times of Crisis” as we complete the material. At a later stage, we will use it to showcase student contributions and to publicly reflect on our experiences teaching the course.
