Inhalt: In this Studium Inviduale core module, students will execute a collaborative research project addressing a question of social significance during the semester. The instructors will assist the students, working in teams, in selecting a suitable topic and in the organisation of the research process. Overall, the process is led and carried out by the students. The teams will work closely with the instructors, who will guide and support the research as supervisors, and with each other through class discussions consisting of constructive feedback. Research is here understood as the process of responding to a problem of wider relevance by contributing original knowledge to the world. By gaining practical team research experience, students develop many skills – from time management and problem solving and decision-making, to productive teamwork and the ability to communicate research results to a wider audience. With the research project, students take an important step towards making their study experience within the framework of the Studium Individuale more broadly relevant outside the curricular context. The learning objectives of this course (see below) involve both the process of research and the collaborative experience of working in a group to plan and produce a collective output. The goal of the project is to serve the participants’ different academic interests and yet bring together their varying knowledge and skills in a complementary and productive way. While the module does not train students in particular methods, class discussions will provide feedback on the appropriate and rigorous application of a selected method among many other topics. This course consists of sessions that comprise of collective peer feedback, regular consultations with the supervisors, self-study, and meetings with group members. Assignments, reading materials, and additional information will be provided via myStudy. We also encourage you to use the myStudy forum as a communication platform to exchange ideas and discuss questions regarding this course.
