  • Design of e-learning units for the seminar on research methodology
    In the project, a traditional teaching approache is adapted into a consistent flipped classroom concept. Theoretical content is outsourced to online learning modules for asynchronous preparation. In the classroom practice, theory and practice are linked in depth and applied to concrete data sets using research methods. The main goal is to increase self-determined learning through individual preparation.
