Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

In this course, students will learn how to plan and conduct a quantitative research project. The major aim of this course is to apply learned knowledge about demographic methods and scientific working to practice by conducting a small empirical study about a topic of choice. The course also aims at preparing the students for writing their Master's Thesis.

The first three sessions are dedicated to the following topics:
- Research project design
- Critical evaluation of existing data
- Reproducibility and open science practices
During these sessions, students also start exploring the theme they would like to research.

In the second part of the course, students are expected to conduct their own research project. Support will be given by the lecturers in the form of individual and group coaching.
