Paper (project) I
Upper secondary education or equivalent.
The purpose of the course is to teach students to write an academic research paper.
The students independently complete a problem-oriented research project, where they use concepts/models/theories which they have learned, collect empirical material, analyse it and come to a conclusion. The students are taught what a research question is, and how to produce a problem-oriented research paper. The students learn to demarcate a problem area (research topic), formulate a research question, collect empirical data material, complete an analysis and to present the results in an academic paper according to academic traditions. The paper is written individually, or in a group.
