Demokratie Leben Lernen 2.0: Politische Sozialisation zu Beginn der Sekundarstufe I

Duration: 3 years (starting spring 2022)
Funded with means of DFG
Project Heads: Simone Abendschön, Markus Tausendpfund (FU Hagen)

In this DFG-project we focus on the transition from primary to secondary schools and its effects from a political socialization perspective. In addition this project focusses on the influence of different types of secondary schools and other school factors as well as the social background on the development of political value orientations and political knowledge at the beginning of the secondary education. At the same time, this research connects the research of political value orientations and political knowledge from a socialisation perspective.


Statistik+: Einstieg in R erleichtern (Teaching project)

Duration: 10/2021 – 09/2022
Funded with means of QSL-D
Project Heads: Philipp Kleer, Simone Abendschön

Project Staff: Leon Klemm, Meike Schulz-Narres

The aim of this project to renew and upgrade the course of "introduction to R" and its teaching materials considering recent research on how to teach statistics in higher education. Special focus of this project is on students who do not have much programming or computer experience (except of smartphones and tablets).

Method Days and Method Consulting (Teaching project)

Duration: 04/2019 – 03/2022
Funded with means of QSL-D/QSL-Z
Project Heads: Simone Abendschön, Elmar Schlüter

In this special project, we introduced method days (one week of workshops) on which students could gain practical knowledge about specific methods (such as logistic regression, structural equation modelling, multi-level-modelling, text analysis). Aim of these method days was to further strengthen students' ability to apply learned methods on their own research interests. Furthermore, we launched the method consulting, where students (all levels from BA to PhD) could get consulting for their works (seminar paper, thesis, research paper, PhD) regarding the empirical methods they used.
