KurzbeschreibungZiel dieser Veranstaltung ist es, methodische Prinzipien sozialwissenschaftlicher Forschung zu vermitteln und somit zu einer kritischen Reflexion von sozialwissenschaftlicher Erkenntnissen anzuregen. Die Veranstaltung gibt einen Einblick in die konkrete Vorgehensweise und die Methoden leitfadengestützter Interviewtechniken sowie der Fragebogenforschung.
LernzielDie Studierenden können
- die Bedeutung von methodengestütztem Vorgehen in der Sozialwissenschaft beschreiben.
- Grundprinzipien sozialwissenschaftlichen Forschens erklären.
- Berichte in den Medien zu Resultaten sozialwissenschaftlicher Forschung kritisch lesen.
- kleinere Interviews und Fragebogenerhebungen durchführen.
InhaltAlle Teilnehmenden verpflichten sich zur aktiven Mitarbeit in Form von drei Übungen (leitfadengestütztes Interview, Erstellung von Fragebogen, Erhebung und Auswertung von Fragebogen).

Inhaltsübersicht:
(1) Wozu empirische (Sozial-)Forschung?
(2) Der Forschungsablauf im Überblick, verknüpfen von qualitativen und quantitativen Methoden
(3) Leitfadengestützte Interviews: erstellen Leitfaden, Durchführung und Auswertung

KurzbeschreibungThis course is a research based teaching activity organized in a real-world setting. Students work independently in groups and learn to formulate research questions, apply different methods of data collection and data analysis and to work in an interdisciplinary team as well as in close exchange with society.
In 2022, the case is the Biosphere Entlebuch, a region in the Canton of Lucerne.
LernzielStudents learn how to plan and implement their research work in interdisciplinary and intercultural teams of students. This includes: structure ill defined and wicked problems; derive relevant research questions; design research plans; apply qualitative and quantitative research methods; work in interdisciplinary and inter-cultural teams; organise transdisciplinary collaboration between science and society.
InhaltThe case study in the spring semester 2022 will be carried out together with the UNESCO Biosphere Entlebuch and will start from the general topic of "culture and environment". This topic will be concretised in the following months together with an accompanying group on site and will serve as a starting point for the student work. For this purpose, the topic will be analysed, structured and translated into concrete research questions, which will then be answered. For example, questions could be asked about the role of Entlebuch culture, agriculture and local associations in the Entlebuch and how they relate to, perceive and shape the environment or more generally, what role does culture play for a sustainable land use?

The following people coach and support the students in the 2022 case study:
• Prof. Dr. Michael Stauffacher (responsible lecturer, co-director TdLab, ETH Zürich)
• Florian Knaus, MSc ETH (scientific coordinator, Biosphere Entlebuch)
• Dr. Pius Krütli (co-director TdLab, ETH Zürich)
• Dr. Bianca Vienni Baptista (Senior Researcher/Lecturer, TdLab, ETH Zürich)
• Sandro Bösch (administrative, organisational support, TdLab, ETH Zürich)

Advisory group: We will be supported on site by an advisory group that will meet at least once before (23 November 2021), once during (April-May 2022) and once after the student work (summer 2022).

The case study is supported by the following experts in the field of cultural and art studies:
• Prof. Irene Vögeli, Prof. Patrick Müller, MA Transdisciplinarity, Zurich University of the Arts (ZHdK)
• Prof. Dr. Boris Previšić, Director, Urner Institute "Cultures of the Alps" at the University of Lucerne
• Prof. Dr. Bernhard Tschofen, University of Zürich, ISEK - Department of Social Anthropology and Cultural Studies

KurzbeschreibungCitizens, consumers, firms, and other stakeholders play an important role in designing and implementing policies that affect and/or are affected by technology. This module enables participants to understand what role public opinion and behavioural approaches play in policy design and implementation, and to systematically design and analyse citizen and stakeholder participation in policy-making.
LernzielPublic Opinion and Behavioural Public Policy Analysis:
Participants understand (1) what role public opinion plays in policy design and implementation processes, (2) how public opinion surveys are designed, (3) how public opinion data is collected, (4) how such data is analysed, (5) how social media data can be used to assess public opinion, (6) how behavioural (field) experiments can be used for policy analysis.
Citizen and Stakeholder Participation in Policy-Making:
Participants understand (1) what forms of citizen and stakeholder participation can be used when policy interventions are designed and implemented, (2) how such participation can influence decision processes, policy choices, and policy outcomes, (3) what the pitfalls of particular participation forms are and how they can be avoided.
