We've had our seminar...

...and it all went well. A number of interesting aspects were addressed, and a colleague of ours told us of an examination form he himself had used, where the students actually work entirely with material from the Internet.

If I remember it correctly, the students are supposed to write an essay and build all their arguments with the help of different quotations from the web (and in the process they are supposed to give proper credit to the author). Thus, they are not allowed to view any opinions of their own, their task is simply to link together the quotations they have chosen. I found this really interesting. This is somehow to take the quotation practise to the extreme, which might be a really efficient eye-opener.
