Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

This course aims at preparing and supporting students in working on their master projects in the MEd programme. We will discuss practical questions surrounding the organisation and design of an MEd project, as well as relevant research methods. Specific focus will be given to the need for a coherent, theoretically well-founded design, which uses appropriate methods to answer research questions. Students can develop a project over the course of the semester or come prepared with a project idea.
