Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

PLEASE NOTE: We are currently adapting the course to the new home-learning regulations. All those enrolled in the class will receive further information soon.

The class is designed to prepare and support students in the Master of Education with their master theses and general research. We will discuss both practical questions of how to begin such a research project as well as general research methods. We will read exemplary texts as well as theoretical texts that can help formulate your ideas. Students will be given the chance to develop a project over the course of the class, if they do not already have one. We will talk about the appropriate scope of a topic and strategies to match one's ideas to the formal requirements of a thesis. Students do not have to have a project yet; this can be developed in class. Students will be asked to present a potential project in class as well as contribute to the discussions.
