Assessment methods

Continuous assessment
The acquisition of the above-mentioned competences is checked within the framework of the immanent performance assessment on the basis of the following partial performances:
(1) Group work: qualitative evaluation of interview transcripts
(2) Empirical studies (qualitative and quantitative) will be made available, which will be analysed and compared in several steps

Teaching methods

The combination of different teaching methods - lecture and distance learning, self-study, practical exercises based on individual and group work, role-play, discussion, written reflection and feedback from peers and teachers - allows for a diverse transfer of knowledge and skills on the one hand and takes into account different learning types among students on the other. By means of practical applications, students are challenged in this exercise to acquire new competences and to reflect on them in connection with the contents of other courses. The selected working materials and research examples provide a reference to the central topics of the course as well as current focal points such as SDGs and digitization.
