Due to the current situation of the COVID-19 pandemic, we offer kick-off and presentation sessions via zoom which is an additional offer of our chair. The intention is to allow you to participate in an interactive digital format, to ask questions, receive feedback, and learn from your colleague's presentations. Please do not disclose any recorded material from the interactive sessions to third parties outside of this Digicampus group. Besides good conduct this is not permitted (cp. important notice below).

Important notice regarding this seminar:
1. Teaching documents: The teaching documents (digital slides, articles, book chapters, ...) are intended for a closed group on Digicampus. All material provided on Digicampus is exclusively intended for the group of students who successfully registered / applied for this course and have been admitted to participate by the professor. Any disclosure of material which has been provided by the professor, lecturer or any participant of the course to third parties outside the group of participants of the course is forbidden.
2. Live-Stream: Additionally to the written material this course is provided as a live stream (as a replacement for kick-off and presentation sessions). The live stream is provided during the specified times of kick-off and presentation sessions via the platform “Zoom”. Zoom allows to participate interactively in online classes on different devices (smartphones, tablets, laptops, smart TVs). In case you would like to participate in the online sessions, please install the Zoom-client software in time (at least 10 minutes before the session starts) on your digital device and connect to the session by clicking on the specified Zoom-meeting link above. Please use your real name as stated on Digicampus for participation in the digital lectures. Any persons who are participating under an alias or nickname are subject to removal from the participants list by the professor / lecturer.
3. Kick-off session: Recordings of the kick-off session will be provided by the teaching personnel as MP4-files on Digicampus for download. The files will be kept on the Digicampus folder until one year after the session. Own recordings of this session or any other online formats offered by the chair department require the written consent by the individual professor / lecturer (see also Kooperatives Selbstverständnis der Wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Fakultät by the Fachschaft). The aim of conducting the kick-off session via Zoom is to interact with participants in a live-dialog. Your contributions to the lecture (e.g. audio or video contributions in case you digitally raise your hand and receive audio/video for your contribution) are recorded and thereafter provided to the registered group of participants on Digicampus. By entering a Zoom lecture you implicitly agree on the recording of your potential contributions. Moreover you agree on the disclosure of the recorded material to the other members of the Digicampus group for a 12 months duration.
4. Presentation sessions: The aim of conducting presentation sessions via Zoom is to interact with participants in a live-dialog. Your contributions to the presentation session are NOT recorded. Own recordings of these sessions or any other online formats offered by the chair department require the written consent by the individual professor / lecturer and all participants (see also Kooperatives Selbstverständnis der Wirtschaftswissenschaftlichen Fakultät by the Fachschaft).
5. No third-party disclosure: The disclosure of any material – in particular the recordings of non-public meetings, lectures or conversations – to third parties (persons outside of the registered group of participants on Digicampus) is not permitted. This material is subject to the copyright of the professor / lecturer and the contributing persons. Moreover, any disclosure invades the personal privacy of the recorded persons and is therefore forbidden.

Miscellanea Upon the successful completion of this module, students have a basic understanding of empirical research in information systems. Topics will be chosen and assigned to students to familiarize them with the information systems research discipline. These topics include IT innovation, IT adoption and continuance, digital strategy, business models, pricing, cloud computing, information privacy, electronic healthcare and others. Students learn how to conduct, write and present a systematic and academic literature review on their individually assigned topic. By doing so, students gain a fundamental understanding of the principles of empirical academic work and obtain the ability to systematically and independently address a research topic. Accordingly, the knowledge and methodological skills acquired in this seminar are a necessary foundation to write a master thesis at the chair. Besides fostering analytical thinking, this seminar will also facilitate the improvement of English skills, as the entire seminar is held in English. Thus, after the successful completion of this module, students will have improved their writing, presentation and discussion skills in English.
