The module consists of lecture as well as seminar elements which interlink with each other on a technical and didactical level. By alternating lectures, discussions, and training elements, students get to know the theoretical basics as well as the practical relevance of the module topics. They get the chance to integrate themselves, their theoretical knowledge and practical experiences, and to exchange views with the other students and the lecturer. Different teaching and learning methods support the student’s professional, methodological, social-communicative, and personal competences, e. g. via station learning, role plays and debates, thesis discussions and case study analysis. They work within the entire group as well as small groups.
