We recommend the course for master students, PhDs and postdocs, project leaders, and practitioners engaged in research cooperation. However, everybody interested or involved in searching solutions for complex societal challenges will benefit from the course.
Course duration: 6 Weeks
Estimated study time: 30 hours in total
Proposed ECTS: 1-1.5 points for following the course
The course offers many opportunities to explore the topics more in depth, e.g. additional publications, case documents, videos and links, or taking the discussion prompts as basis for written exercises. This may justify to increase ECTS to 1.5 – 2 points or higher.
To reduce study time, it is possible to choose only two cases out of the five presented and follow only those.
ECTS points, including the respective tests have to be handled by the responsible lecturers according to their institutional regulations.
