A mandatory master level seminar directly related to the master's thesis work. Before the seminar, participants should have selected a thesis topic together with their supervisor(s), and thus have supervisors assigned.
During the seminar, a student typically advances thesis work through the stages of literature review and analysis, selection and formulation of the research method, and design of the constructive/empirical part of the thesis. Lectures will consider conducting scientific research.
In addition to attending (voluntary) lectures, the students must present and peer review their thesis in the four group sessions. There will be own group for English speaking students, of which M.Sc Mariia Gavriushenko will be responsible. As well, distant students will present and peer review their topics online.

Important, you will be working on your Thesis from the day one. There is no point participating in to the Seminar if you have not figured out at all what you are planning to do as Thesis.
The tasks are returned using website template:
To make your tasks, you need to edit the body.md file, which is automatically converted as website content. When you need to include references, add the reference to the file references.md
Both files are written using Markdown's formatting syntax. We will keep it simple and basically use headings, paragraphs, lists and links. For more information, here is a guide for Markdown.
I recommend using APA citation style. A good guide to APA can be found here
Don't change the names of the files, because the converter will break.
Make sure that your website works. Open browser and go to the address users.jyu.fi/~yourdomain/TIES501
We are going to use Slack for group discussions
Mariia Gavriushenko is responsible for distant students, therefore you need to accomplish the given tasks in English.
The seminar is possible to made completely away, but it will need active participation. If you intend to participate from distance you need to do the same tasks as everyone else. The seminar lectures are not compulsory, but you need to learn the discussed topics by yourself. I will provide some references in the slides.
The group sessions are compulsory, because they replace the traditional seminar presentation. So, instead of having a single presentation you need to explain your progress in four steps (sessions). Peer review is made using Slack collaboration environment.
