Exercise, sport and health


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 are discussed using examples in the field of movement, sport, and health; the students’ own scientific discussions are encouraged. The students learn how to write scientific papers (especially seminar papers, Bachelor’s theses, and later Master’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 Bachelor’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 on movement (including the science of sport and exploratory attitudes in sport pedagogical research and didactics)
  • Research designs and concept specifications in the sport pedagogical stance
  • Critical examination of scientific findings and the presentation thereof
