|In teams, participants in this seminar conduct their own research project. Each team is advised by one of the researchers serving as lecturers in this course. Basic conceptual and methodological issues are the topic of a series of plenary meetings; however, the major part of the work is done in small-group meetings with the advising researcher, and in self-directed research projects.
|The course is targeted at advanced students who have taken an interest in gathering practical research experience in the field of Learning & Instruction. In teams, students conduct their own research projects (on request, working alone is also possible); thus, the course requires a high amount of self-directed working. Students are personally advised, and supported in their research project, by one of the researchers serving as lecturers in this course. During the first half the semester, relevant methodological knowledge and skills are practiced during plenary meetings and in students` independent reading.
|Prerequisites / Notice
|The successful completion of EW1 and EW3 ist a precondition for taking this course. However, with agreement obtained from the lecturers in advance, students holding equivalent prior knowledge from other courses may also be eligible for this course.
