Special features regarding teaching

On the one hand, central and current contents of the course are taught in lectures and colloquia, on the other hand, formats of collaborative knowledge development in seminars play a central role. Seminars in the field, field placements and teaching research projects enable previously acquired theories and methods to be applied in practical exercises. PC seminars provide the framework for learning computer-based information processing.
