Learning outcomes:
Creating and Evaluating Systematic Reviews:
After successfully completing this module, students will have acquired basic knowledge about how to create reviews and evaluate them critically. They will be able to formulate review questions, search for literature in databases relevant to their subject area, select literature from the pool of literature they researched, assess the quality of the literature, summarize evidence and interpret results.  
 
Bachelor Thesis Colloquium:
This module also accompanies students during the course of their Bachelor thesis. In this course, students will develop their topic and its presentation, as well as answer theoretical questions based on an exposé in the plenum. They will have the opportunity to discuss their technical and methodological problems. After successfully completing the module, they will be able to develop a realistic time/work schedule for their Bachelor thesis and avoid wasting time on unnecessary tasks. Students will be familiar with methods of creative writing and will be able to use them to support their personal writing process.
