Lecture contents

The integrated lecture teaches methodological and paradigmatic basics of qualitative and quantitative research. The research process is explained along the main phases. A selection of qualitative and quantitative research approaches as well as typical procedures and conceptual elements (e.g. sampling strategies, methods of investigation and analysis) are presented in order to conceive limits and possibilities of qualitative and quantitative methods, quality criteria and ethical aspects for empirical studies. The course also provides techniques of scientific work (e.g. literature research, methods of reading, writing and giving feedback) and discusses characteristics of scientific papers and text types. Examples of applied research are used referring to the field of social work and social services / economy, in particular master theses of the study program.

Assessment methods

Teaching methods

Input of teachers and exercises provide the chance to sharpen perception and to sensitize students to different aspects of empirical research within social economy. Distance learning exercises are given between the courses via e-learning platform Moodle.
