Sustainable Digital Life: Methodological Aspects (5 ECTS) 

This course enables students to focus on the sustainability of research with children and young people in digital environments from a qualitative perspective.

It introduces the concept of sustainability in digital environments from a methodological perspective in the form of a practical, case-based workshop. Sustainability underlines the philosophy of science as well as theoretical premises of methodological choice. The focus is on introducing different research possibilities in digital environments utilising qualitative methodologies with fieldwork. The individual sessions discuss methods critically, both in terms of implementation and execution, from planning to organising and analysing with assessments, including ethical research perspectives, especially on children and youth in digital environments. 

Application period: 1 April – 07 June 2021.

Update 14 June ’21: There’s a few spots left and applications are still accepted!
