Research-based learning â€“ teachers explore scientific learning
STEOP, at least 100 ECTS-CP
Encounters with nature
This research workshop supports the development and promotion of a research habitus (i.e. as a place for research-based learning and reflection on methods). The inquiring attitude leads to generating and ordering bases for scientific practices and ideas. In particular, the topics and research methods will be discussed using examples in the field of encounters with nature, and the students will be encouraged to engage in their own academic discussions. The students learn how to write scientific papers (especially seminar papers, Bachelorâ€™s theses, and later Masterâ€™s theses) in relation to their focus areas.
- Scientific knowledge acquisition for practice (including paradigms and attitudes of science, being familiar with, distinguishing, and reflecting on methods, discussing and designing survey instruments, critically reflecting on research objects, developing questions, planning and carrying out a scientific paper, structure of a Bachelorâ€™s thesis, finding of topics, research questions, literature research, citation, research ethics).
- Orientation framework of the researching attitude (including research-led, research-informed, research-based, and research-oriented)
- Critical examination of scientific findings and their presentation
- Examination of approaches, studies, and research relevant to the focus "encounters with nature" (including exploratory attitudes in scientific research and didactics as well as experimentation skills at the primary level)
- Analysis of selected scientific phenomena
- Critical examination of scientific findings and the presentation thereof
