Learning outcomes of course unit
By applying knowledge unaided the students will acquire overall competence. The total implementation of a complex project will be carried out unaided by the students.
Important steps of this are concept development, budgeting and carrying out the project as well as evaluating and interpreting the results. In order to improve the social competence of the students the projects will be carried out in student teams.
The teams are set up and lead by the students. Skills which are particularly important for this are, for example, analysis of recipient behavior, cost conscious decision-making competence, risk management, intercultural competence in dealing with other people, organizational and social competence, budget competence, sponsoring and project management.
The above-mentioned learning and teaching aims will be ensured by implementing the proposed solution in a real-life situation.
