Hey, so I’m still waiting for approval to join the course later (applied too late) which means I don’t have any information about how the exam will be this year. Does anyone know what format/type/etc the exam will be this year?
I looked at the slides from the first lecture but it only said "8 essay questions, 90min, open book" and a picture of the concept map. So, I am not quite sure whether with "essay questions", he means the concept maps or not

I think it might be similar to last years just that they might make the open questions a bit harder. So a mix between the concept maps and some open questions with subquestions. Hopefully we get a little more info before the actual exam!
Hey there, the university announced the extra resit quite spontaneously and my preparation is therefore not the best. Any tips or comments regarding what to focus on, taking into account the previous exams or anything else would be much appreciated! Thanks!
hi i wasn't able to read any comments for a long time, don't know why, but i could see someone commented and then i couldn't see the comment. anyways i used the 6th version, yes so not everything is exactly matching the course manual :/
nice but quite inaccurate... for some things it's good to look at this tho. Thank you! Maybe for the ppl reading this i'd advice to not take everything into account... most of competing theories are wrong and definition as well... plus weak connections or not at all for similar theories
You guys can't handle any criticism? I agree with the jester, I think this document is full of mistakes. in herco's annotated concept map, he says ancient history/greeks gets you less or NO points. By pointing out this is not accurate, jaster is actually helping you. And uf he chooses to not share his stuff thats his decision. You sound like a bunch of children. Get out of your sugar coated world!

nobody asked for any material here Julius! And holding back mine is just my own choice (plus I worked hard for my own connections, you could have done the same and get your shit together). Anyways, my decision of not sharing doesn't give you any right to personally insult me. and it just shows how little you are. Furthermore, I was pointing out, as faceplate said ,that there are lots of errors in the map and maybe it's not a great idea to base your studying on that ! Cheers and good luck!
Last year you had to choose a cross cultural research article from any of the tasks and come up with a question about cultural differences yourself...and then you had to answer your own question (in 50 to 100 words if i remember correctly)
Everything ahah I would say that last year, MCQs shared by the students were too deep so they were not taken for the exam. Otherwise pay attention to the concept maps: theory is a theory, not hypothesis or bias/fallacy/heuristic :)
Does anyone have a summary of the article: Sio, U. N., Kotovsky, K., & Cagan, J. (2015). Fixation or inspiration? A meta-analytic
review of the role of examples on design processes. Design Studies, 39, 70-99 before monday? Thank you in advance.
How specific do you guys refer to the 2 articles in the individual report from the virtual mobility assignment? I still have no clue on what I should write for this... I can only come up with really general/basic things.
I am a bit lost concerning the concept maps for Task 5 "reasoning"
what would be a history aspect for the "mental logic theories" and "mental model theory"?
because for the heuristic-analytic model one could mention William James with the first dual-process model
He answered this question on the discussion board:
Mail with added numbers to make answering easier:
"I am sorry to bother you with this again but a lot of students are having big problems with approaching the concept maps.
1 There are a lot of theories where people would consider doing a concept map, but there are simply points missing, for example for a lot of theories there is no history mentioned or no empirical support. Do we leave these theories out or are we supposed to go into deeper individual research to find answers to those parts, that weren't covered in the literature?
2 Also it is hard for us to distinguish between relevant and irrelevant concepts, for example are concepts like deductive reasoning, gestalt approach or insight relevant or is that not what you intended?
3 Due to the fact that we did not have any tutors this course and have not received a deeper explanation of how to approach these or what topics we are supposed to focus on, many of us are clueluess and spend alot of time on guessing what might come up in the exam.
4 Also, because you mentioned that 1 or two of the fields will be filled out, many of us are worried that if we do not know what is meant with the two fields we w ill not be able to complete the concept map.
5 If you fill out the fields, do you have specific answers in mind or will you accept whatever makes sense or might not be directly related but is otherwise accurate?"
1 This is why you typically are not required to fill out all open fields. Only when I think it is fair given what you can get from textbooks will I ask for full maps
2 deductive reasoning and insight are concepts that refer to cognitive phenomena or processes. They are not theories of models or h theory of deductive reasoning would be OK, but then refer to the name of the theory of the author (like mental model theory, or the theory of Johnson Laird, or mental model theory of Johnson-Laird)
3 Absence of tutors is irrelevant. In previous years, concept maps were not discussed in tutorial groups. Tutors were explicitly told not to discuss them because they might pass on wrong information or evaluations. Last year, without tutors, the maps were completed better than ever before. (Have you considered you may be lucky that there are no tutors who interfere?)
4 Yes, that would be a case of bad luck, but I think it rarely happened to students who were awake during tutorial group sessions
5 No, anything goes, as long as it is correct and fits well with the content of the other fields in the map
