Courses, Learning and Teaching Methods and Literature

Learning and Teaching Methods

The learning outcomes of this module will be developed through the literature search, the study of literature, the preparation of the presentation, the discussion with the teacher, the talk itself and answering questions about it.


Presentation materials, complementary literature


Specialized literature to the individual topics of the seminar talks will be provided;

own literature search.

Module Exam

Description of exams and course work

In the course of the seminar each student individually prepares a talk on a topic of current research. Based on this talk the learning outcome is tested.
