Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will:
  
_        be able to explain the history, theoretical and methodological foundations of qualitative-reconstructive and quantitative research and their relevance for professional practice,
   
- be able to apply types of research, elementary data collection methods and data evaluation concepts,
- be able to assess traditional studies,
- be able to conceptualize, conduct and evaluate smaller qualitative-empirical as well as quantitative-empirical (explorative) studies on selected issues in a collaborative manner. In doing so, they will be aware of the conditions in their field of investigation and the specific challenges that exist with regard to the challenges collecting data from specific target groups,
_        be able to present their results in writing (and to present them to the public), reflect critically on their cooperative research work (e.g. limitations) and discuss the relevance of their results and the application possibilities.
