General comment

The current situation requires all of us to adapt our teaching formats and ways of working in order to provide an educational and interesting semester even without face-to-face sessions on campus.
Please be aware that we also try to accommodate to these circumstances.

Course summary

Data becomes more and more crucial for formulating government policies and delivering public services. This growing relevance of data(-driven) governance triggers various crucial issues and questions such as the emergence and effects of bias in the data foundation of automated decision-making or how to regulate companies but also other (non-)governmental actors utilizing data for their business models and activities. Similarly, one may discuss the effects of an accelerated increase in data infrastructure for energy consumption or the implications of data(-driven) governance for public sector employees engaged in policy design and service delivery. This seminar discusses these and other aspects of data(-driven) governance with an empirical focus on Germany (and other modern democracies).

The seminar combines asynchronous and synchronous elements.

  • The first half of sessions in this term (until calendar week 21, ending on Friday, 28.05.2021), will be conducted asynchronous (via Moodle). There will be forum discussions (which will require your solo inputs) and you will prepare a mini project (group of 2-3 participants).
    Note: The group work is mostly to support your (social) networking and may inform your project paper, but you may also pick a different topic for your project paper.
  • The second half of sessions in this term will be held as a 'block day' in calendar week 25 to present and discuss the mini projects (the distinct date will be decided by the course participants in the first seminar week; this day runs from 09.00 to 16.00h with breaks, most likely via Zoom).

Very important: The Moodle-key will be distributed among all participants registered in PULS by Friday, 09 April 2021, 17.00h.
You will receive an email with the key and further instructions by Monday, 12 April 2021.


Requirements (participation only):

  • Participation in the Moodle-course (2 solo inputs to each week with a forum or group work for each week with such assignments)
  • Development of a mini research project design (draft deadline: 18.06.2021) and
  • Presentation of your mini research project design at the "block day".
  • Discussion of another mini research project design at the "block day".

Requirements (module assessment, Modulprüfung):

  • Project paper (3500-4000 words without references; deadline: 30.08.2021)
