Practical Project 1
level of course unit
Learning outcomes of course unit
Practical projects primarily serve to gather field experience. The first step is to raise awareness of the problem by making practical observations and analyses. Subse-quently, individual problem-solving approaches should be formulated and, if neces-sary, pursued, thus enabling the students to acquire solution competence.
While students can deepen and improve their subject-specific competences, complementary competences such as social competence, risk management, budgeting com-petence and economically responsible decision-making competence are also solidi-fied.
prerequisites and co-requisites
To prepare the students optimally for problems in working life, practical tasks are worked on in groups, or field experiences are obtained under the guidance of the course instructors. The students contribute their acquired knowledge and compare it with observations and experiences in the context of the integrative case studies.
Based on a client briefing (by the course instructors or external partners such as associations and companies), the students work on the presented projects inde-pendently, only guided by the course instructors if necessary: Planning, coordina-tion, budgeting, control, evaluation and final reporting are in the hands of the stu-dents.
