Week 14 – Progress

My team and I finished the english version of our project: “GHS at a glance with the 4 pillars and case studies”. We learned a lot and were shocked by some of the VT cases that were examplified.

Now the difficult thing is translating the ppp into German. First slide: “Graduate Honor system at a glance” – I don’t think that we have an Honor system in Germany, or if we do, I have never heard of it. Second problem: what are graduate students. I don’t even think we differentiate between undergraduate and graduate students, and I have been a both in Germany myself.

I am sure there are rules against cheating, falsification etc at German universities, but a quick google search just now did not reveal much.

I have to dig deeper into the subject, but it is sad that after 5 years of graduate and undergraduate education in Germany I still dont know

    Wow, it is amazing that you are having so much trouble finding issues relating to cheating, falsification, etc. in Germany. Is it emphasized too much here, or are we just a bunch of cheats her in the US? Or, is it just not talked about in Germany? Other reasons why? I’m sure you’ll delve into this during your presentation.
