Course Description and Purpose

The aim of this course is to accustom students to the basics of research on media and technology management. It will introduce research methods and approaches as well as prepare students for outlining and writing short papers and consequently a master thesis. The general idea is to systematically assess and subsequently practice writing the most important components of academic papers. During the first sessions, students will develop relevant research questions from the media and technology management field with the assistance of the instructor. In the course of the class, students will then learn how to systematically design and write a small research paper.
