Special features regarding research and developmentThe students are involved in a research project as part of the "Scientific Work" module. For example, a parent survey was carried out in winter semester 2018/19 in order to determine the interests and requests for participation of potential users of a newly built day care centre. The students developed the questionnaire themselves and evaluated it. They presented the results with PowerPoint presentations and graphics to the youth welfare committee of the city of Gera. In addition, they presented a scientific poster at the university's internal research congress.
Other special featuresThe seminars are structured according to the CORE principle (Competence-Oriented Research and Education). CORE puts active learners at the centre of everything that happens. A clear competence orientation, a strong practical relevance as well as the integration of research and interdisciplinarity are everyday life for all learners and teachers. Trying out is literally more important than studying. The students work things out for themselves. So that they not only know something, but can also apply it.
