Applied research in public management 1 ILV

Lector: Mag.a Dr.in Karin Schönpflug, DI Michal Sedlacko, MSc PhD, Potjeh Stojanovic, MSc

1 SWS   2 ECTS

Lecture contents

- Characteristics of scientific thinking; scientific theory and empirical research; fundamentals of the qualitative and quantitative research paradigm; connection between theoretical perspective, problem, research question, methods and 'data'

- Concretization of the quantitative research paradigm: creation of quantitative questionnaires using an evaluation-oriented approach; repetition of the basics of statistics

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) Written reading assignments
(2) Multiple choice tests on the topics of literature research and citation guidelines
(3) Creation of a short quantitative questionnaire with an evaluation concept

Teaching methods

The combination of different teaching methods - lecture and distance learning, self-study, multiple-choice test, practical exercises based on individual and group work, discussion 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 digitisation.
