course contents

As part of this seminar students will present and analyze their experiences from their internship.
This course will be taught using e-Learning methods in order to help students achieve a stronger connection to FH Kufstein during their year abroad, to strengthen the solidarity of the class and to encourage students to exchange their experiences.
The course content will be a structured reflection of the commonalities and contradictions of theoretical knowledge and practical applications. Students will thereby acquire the ability to critically reflect upon the interplay between theory and practice in the working world. Individual experiences will be critically examined together in group discussions, which will be structured by the course instructor (e.g. in forums and in chats).
