Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

In dieser Übung sollen Studierende sich einen Überblick zu den geläufigsten Fragen und Methoden der qualitativen Sozialforschung und ihren praktischen Konsequenzen erarbeiten. Neben methodischen Toolkits (Zugang, Erhebung und Auswertung) werden theoretische und ethische Herausforderungen, denen wir in der Forschungspraxis begegnen, reflexiv thematisiert. Anhand konkreter Anwendungsbeispiele soll der kritische Umgang mit den eigenen Möglichkeiten erprobt und für das eigene interaktive Handeln sensibilisiert werden.
