Reflecting on Research Methods (Vorlesung)

Dozent/in: Michael Dellwing, Henrik von Wehrden

Einzeltermin | Mi, 06.04.2022, 12:15 - Mi, 06.04.2022, 13:45 | C 40 Auditorium
Einzeltermin | Mi, 06.07.2022, 12:15 - Mi, 06.07.2022, 13:45 | C HS 1 (Umbau HS-Gang bis 30.09.22) S. Kommentar

Inhalt: The module "Reflecting Research Methods" deals with the engagement with unrelated, unknown scientific methods. Together with students of different major, these methods are applied and reflected on with regard to ethical research questions and cross-disciplinary contexts of use. In addition, the possibilities and limits of familiar methods and specialist cultures will be reflected upon in a more foreign way, and specific methods will be used to create differences and connections. This also includes the examination of different concepts of interdisciplinary research. Since it is a matter of getting involved with methods from other disciplines, the module offers special events that encourage a change of perspective. This can be done, for example, by reflecting on methods on the basis of example fields that allow links to one's own degree programmes, but pursue a methodological perspective that is not already regularly offered in these degree programmes.

Inhalt: Eine Bachelorarbeit zu schreiben, ist ein komplexer Prozess, der in der Regel viel Zeit in Anspruch nimmt. Mit dem Verfassen einer Bachelorarbeit haben Sie zum ersten Mal die Gelegenheit sich intensiv mit einem Thema zu beschäftigen und eine Fragestellung wissenschaftlich zu bearbeiten. Gegenstand dieser Vorlesung ist die Frage, welche Aspekte es bei der Bearbeitung einer solchen Fragestellung zu beachten gilt und wie sich der Prozess der Bearbeitung erfolgreich gestalten lässt. Über Moodle erhalten Sie außerdem die Möglichkeit, sich weitere Inhalte selbständig vor den Veranstaltungen anzueignen und mit geeigneter Literatur zu vertiefen. Vorlesung I: Bachelor-Arbeit - Organisatorisches und Formalia Einführung in die Veranstaltungslogik, Überblick über formale Anforderungen und rechtliche Rahmenbedingungen sowie organisatorische Schritte bei einer Bachelorarbeit Vorlesung II-IV: Inhaltliche Aspekte Themenfindung und Schreibprozess Vorlesung V: Offene Fragen Vorbereitung der mündlichen Prüfung Evaluation der Veranstaltung/SHIFT! Feedback CONTENTS Writing a bachelor‘s thesis is a complex process which usually requires a lot of time. With the composition of a bachelor’s thesis, you gain the opportunity to intensively engage in a topic and work on a scientific research question for the first time. Subject of this lecture is the question of which aspects are to be considered in the handling of such a question and how a successful working process can be created. Through moodle, you additionally receive the possibility to independently study further contents before the lectures or tutorials and engage in suitable literature. Lecture I Writing a bachelor’s thesis: organisation and formalities Introduction to the logic and structure of the module, overview of the formal requirements and legal framework as well as organisational steps regarding a bachelor’s thesis. Lecture II-IV Writing a bachelor’s thesis: content-wise aspects Information on the choice of a topic, the composition of a bachelor’s thesis including questions of style, vocabulary and grammar Lecture V Open questions Assessment criteria of bachelor’s theses Preparation of the verbal examination Evaluation/SHIFT!

Forschungsmethoden in der Nachhaltigkeitswissenschaft (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Henrik von Wehrden

wöchentlich | Montag | 08:15 - 09:45 | 04.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C 14.006 | C 14.006

Inhalt: PSYCHOLOGY AND SUSTAINABILITY STUDENTS, PLEASE CHOOSE THIS SEMINAR! Within the seminar students will learn how to use a wide array of research methods that are applied in sustainability science. The course will also teach the students to obtain information on how to learn more about methods, and how to learn new methods and apply these in their work. The course is designed to enable students to develop methodological designs with a mixed methods approach. Building on a broad and diverse conceptual basis the students will work in smaller groups, thereby learning the collaborative skills necessary to utilise the diverse knowledge of the participants.

Mathematics and Statistics (Vorlesung)

Dozent/in: Henrik von Wehrden

wöchentlich | Dienstag | 08:15 - 09:45 | 04.04.2022 - 08.07.2022 | C HS 3 (Umbau HS-Gang bis 30.09.22) S. Kommentar

Inhalt: The lecture is a the main basis of gaining an understanding of quantitative analyses in environmental and sustainability science. The lecture is structured into five parts. 1) A basic introduction, including a recap of descriptive statistics, and a quick overview on data formats, data distribution and simple tests. 2) Correlations and linear models as a pivotal part of the analyses of continuous data. 3) Analyses of variance, allowing designing simple experiments and for comparing variance among different groups. 4) A quick overview of different types of experiments, and a short discussion of the normative dimensions of statistics. 5) A written exam. The lecture is the main basis of information -building on a flipped classroom format between videos and a central WIKI-, and the associated tutorials are intended to deepen the understanding on the different topics and provide applied skills and knowledge. The Wiki serves as a theoretical basis, the videos provide focussed explanations, which can be considered a basis for further research projects and your thesis, should you choose to work with quantitative methods. The tutorials repeat the respective content and provide a learning experience in R. Attending the lecture will be your best basis for gaining knowledge, and will increase your chances on passing the exam.

Scientific methods and mixed methods - an interactive primer for sustainability science (Workshop)

Dozent/in: Henrik von Wehrden

Inhalt: This workshop will help PhD students to locate themselves in the diverse canon of scientific methods. Building on basic epistemological design criteria of methods, participants will initially learn how their specific scientific methods integrate into methods of normal sciences. In a next step -on day two- we will map within the workshop which knowledge the participants are aiming for in their PhD. On the third day, we will try to derive additional design criteria that help to define and systematise emerging scientific methods. The course builds on a diverse wiki on methods that is already written and designed by the team of Henrik von Wehrden. This Wiki will serve as groundwork for this course.

Happiness - an evidence based approach (FSL) (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Julius Rathgens, Henrik von Wehrden

wöchentlich | Mittwoch | 12:15 - 13:45 | 06.04.2022 - 06.07.2022 | C 14.201

Inhalt: Focussing on the topic of happiness, we identify main branches of the literature, and jointly learn how to read these papers and to synthesise the relevant available literature that investigates happiness. Within this seminar you learn about systematic reviews as a method to investigate into scientific literature. You then conduct your own mini-review using the procedural steps of systematic literature review. Within the seminar, you thus learn concretely how to access and evaluate the available scientific literature, how to read and understand diverse research, and how to integrate it into a clear narrative. Ultimately, you will compile your own report about a specific topic investigated in combination with the effects on happiness.
