Die studentische Opponierung als Form mündlicher Wissenschaftskommunikation aus Studierenden- und Lehrkraft-Perspektive
Abstract Especially in Finland, student opponent seminars are common for discussing student assignments, e. g. bachelor theses. However, the teacher faces a number of didactic challenges. This article focuses on student opponent seminars as a form of oral scientific communication, and presents an action research that takes into account both the student and teacher perspective. The action research deals with the following questions: (i) How is the student opponent seminar perceived as a form of oral scientific communication by both students and the teacher? (ii) How could student opponent seminars be further developed and improved? The methods used for the action research are: (i) questionnaire (students), (ii) self-observation (teacher) and (iii) triangulation of methods for comparison. The results of the action research can be summarized as follows: The students clearly mention more advantages/opportunities than disadvantages/challenges. Their answers are more positive towards student opponent seminars than expected, also concerning their own learning outcome. The students find student opponent seminars very laborious and time consuming, but also useful and well-balanced with respect to time and learning. Based on the results of the action research, student opponent seminars will be further developed and improved by agreeing earlier on their schedule and by allowing the students to revise their bachelor thesis after the student opponent seminars.
