Description:
To openly express one’s views is the most fundamental civil liberty. While this basic right is under constant and serious threat in authoritarian contexts, the question of how free speech should be regulated is also a concern in liberal democracies. It is particularly important in globalized conditions of cultural diversity and the unprecedented levels of communication facilitated by the digital revolution. The aim of this course is to discuss contemporary scholarly research on the politics of free speech and censorship. Why is free expression so important? Why and how do states actually regulate free speech and what are the effects of this regulation? How does cultural diversity and digital communication impact on these questions? Next to substantive discussion the course will place great emphasis on the practice of quantitative political research and provide ample space for students’ projects.

Description:
The objective of this course is to provide students with the basics of formal modeling in political science. The course has some breadth in coverage in the sense that it provides a graduate-level introduction and overview to diferent areas in game theory. It is also narrow in the sense that the emphasis is not on application and model testing but getting trained in reading and writing down formal models. At the conceptual level the course will cover the following topics: normal form games, Nash equilibria, extensive form games, subgame perfect equilibria, repeated games, bargaining, games with incomplete and imperfect information, Bayesian perfect equilibria, signaling games, preferences and individual choices, basics of decision theory and social choice. At the substantial level, we will use these concepts to
study, as examples, candidate competition, political lobbying, and war and deterrence.

Description:

The course introduces students to quantitative methods in political science. During the first half of the course, we will focus on linear regression models. The topics covered include discussions of the mathematical bases for such models, their estimation and interpretation, model assumptions and techniques for addressing violations of those assumptions, and topics related to model specification and functional forms. During the second half of the course, students will be introduced to likelihood as a theory of inference, including models for binary and count data. The main goals of this course are to develop sound critical judgment about quantitative studies of political problems, to understand the logic of statistical inference, to recognize and understand the basics of the linear regression model, to develop the skills necessary to work with datasets to perform basic quantitative analyses, and to provide a basis of knowledge for more advanced statistical methods. In the accompanying course “Tutorial Multivariate Analyses” students will develop the necessary expertise in using statistical software to conduct quantitative research in political science.

Description:
The main focus lies on the introduction to statistical models and estimators beyond linear regression useful to a social scientists. A good understanding of the classical linear regression model is a prerequisite and required for the further topics of the course. We will first discuss violations of the asymptotic properties of the linear regression model and ways to address these violations (heteroscedasticity, endogeneity, proxy variables, IV-estimator). The second part of the class is dedicated to first the maximum likelihood estimator and second to generalized linear models (GLS) for binary choice decisions (Logit, Probit), ordinal dependent variables, and count data (Poisson, Negative Binomial). Classes will be accompanied by lab sessions to repeat and practice the topics from the classes. We will use the statistical package Stata.

Description:
This lecture introduces incoming students to the fundamental principles of (social) science, different theoretical paradigms in sociology, and empirical-analytical sociological research on social mechanisms. First, as an introduction into the epistemological foundations of social sciences, we will address key insights of the philosophy of sciences, sociological theory and analytic sociology on social mechanism. What is a reasonable (causal) explanation of social phenomena and how can it be verified? Furthermore, we will study the different paradigms in the social sciences and in particular important variants of sociological theory ranging from interpretative approaches to rational choice theory. In how far are these complementary or do these represent disparate perspectives? Finally, actual sociological applications of analytical sociology studying particular social mechanisms will be discussed.

Course description
The methodological toolbox that is available to social scientists has considerably increased in recent years. Unfortunately, however, this increased methodological precision is not always accompanied by theoretical precision. In this course, we aim to shift attention from identifying causal mechanisms empirically to theorizing about them.
For this purpose, we discuss how selected exemplary studies tackle the key questions of applied sociological theorizing. Roughly speaking, we proceed in three steps. In a first step, we ask what, exactly, the scientific or social problem under study and the related research question is. This question may sound almost trivial, but it is not, given that everything else depends on a clear understanding of the underlying problem. After establishing the explanandum, our second step is to examine the theoretical explanation that the authors offers to explain the observed phenomena or pattern. In order to do so, we discuss the (sometimes hidden) assumptions and scope conditions of respective theories. We also discuss how convincing these theoretical explanations are, what observable implications they have, and how the authors test these implications empirically. In the final step, we assess whether the study has succeeded in advancing our (theoretical) understanding of the problem it sought to address.

Description:
The aim of this research seminar is to conduct an analysis of secondary data and to write a short research paper on a topic relevant to family sociology. Students can choose the topic on their own and can either opt for a replication of a published research paper or work on an original research paper.

In the first session we will discuss the value of replication in social research and how to a select a research question. In the following sessions the instructor will briefly introduce two to three datasets (depending on the research interests of the participating students) which are particularly suitable for addressing family related research questions (e.g., SOEP; The German Family Panel (pairfam); Survey of Health, Ageing, and Retirement in Europe (SHARE); Health and Retirement Study (HRS)). One or two additional sessions will deal with the workflow of data analysis using Stata/R (focus on writing accessible and effective do-files). In the remaining weeks of the seminar the students are working on their research projects. Students will develop hypotheses, write a review of research related to these hypotheses and conduct an empirical test using secondary data.

At the beginning of the semester classes will take place on a weekly basis. Later in the semester some regular classes will be replaced by individual appointments with the instructor. During the semester students will present and discuss the progress of their research project in class.

Description:
This is not a typical seminar where we read papers and discuss them. Instead, the main idea of this research seminar is to turn students from consumers of research into producers of research.
Its purpose is to help students in developing and fine-tuning an empirical research paper that will provide the foundation of their master thesis in the following semester. Hence, ideally, each student will have produced a first version of their paper manuscript by the end of this semester. You may want to have a look at articles that were recently published in leading journals to get an idea of how such a paper might look like.
To this end, we will spend the first few weeks on developing ideas, framing arguments, and avoiding common pitfalls when drafting research papers. For the remainder of the course, I expect every student
· to write a first draft of her/his paper and give a short (20 minutes) conference-style presentation.
· at least one other student (ideally two) and I will review and comment on the paper draft in writing.
· all other students are expected to contribute to the discussion of this first presentation.
· to address the suggestions, concerns, and critiques received in a revision of your first draft. In other words, you will write a second, revised draft.
· We will then repeat the same process of comment and critique in this second round.
· Finally, each student will address once more all comments and critiques received in the second round to produce the final paper for this research seminar.
By the end of the semester, you should have (1) a clear idea about the research question, data requirements, and design of your M.A. thesis, and (2) a solid draft of a research paper that will serve as the foundation for your thesis, i.e. you won’t start your thesis with a blank page in the next semester.

Description:
How do we know which research design fits best our research question? What requirements must be in place for good descriptive, causal and predictive inference? How do we estimate causal effects? How do we design and analyze experiments? Can we make causal claims from observational data? Researchers in the social sciences must be able to answer all of these questions.
This course teaches the fundamental concepts behind the estimation of causal effects, including potential obstacles to causal inference. Real-world examples will be discussed in detail and students will apply the techniques learned with real datasets in R. Students will come away with an understanding of how to estimate causal effects in both randomized and observational settings, with a particular focus on the careful design of both types of studies.

Description:
This advanced seminar will explore classic and recent social science research that seeks to explain variation in organizational behavior and development. We will consider a variety of research questions that tap into both formal and informal ways of organizing: what kinds of institutions are necessary to make economic organization work? Where do such institutions come from? Why do we observe very different outcomes across contexts even though they share the same market-supporting institutions? Why do some organizations survive even though they face the most unfavorable environments? How do conditions at the time of an organization's birth shape its development? To address these and further questions, we will rely both on recent theoretical advances and on empirical studies in a various settings.

Description:
For long, education has been seen as a “giant sorting machine” for life chances in industrialized societies (Dunlop et al. 1975). This truism has been holding for decades. In light of technological changes and the expansion of knowledge-based tasks, education might increase its importance even more. Yet, educational opportunities are unevenly distributed. Social origin (parental class, income, education, wealth as well as (epi-)genetic dispositions), ethnic background, and gender affect chances of educational transitions and educational attainment. Inequality of educational opportunities also vary by country and across time. In the seminar on educational inequalities in Europe, we discuss classic and more recent theories of educational inequalities, different trends over time and cross-national variation in Europe, and we focus on selected dimensions of educational inequalities.

Description:
Up to the mid-1980s immigration was one of the least politicized issues on the political agenda of European countries. Since then, however, it has become one of the most important topics on the political agenda. Mass immigration has resulted in widespread xenophobia and fierce debates on the difficulties of integrating new arrivals. Muslim migration in particular seems to pose a special challenge to Western Europe, leading to widespread Islamophobia throughout the region. In this seminar we will consider reactions to Muslim immigration in Western Europe at various levels. What kind of policies do the European states implement in order to regulate mass immigration and integration? How do nationals react to this and how can we explain Islamophobia?

Design and Implementation of Online Experiments
Modules

In this applied course students will learn how to design and implement online behavioral experiments. The course includes the following modules:

1. Principles of Experimental Method. Validity, causality, lab-vs-online-vs-field, review of landmark experiments.

2. Programming for Online Experiments. The JavaScript language for the browser and the server (Node.JS), the nodeGame platform, and elements of visualization and styling libraries as jQuery or Bootstrap.

3. Remote Collaboration Tools. Git and GitHub, the Atom editor and other tools for collaborative coding.

4. Modeling Human Behavior. Introduction to game theory, main game theory games, social influence processes, heuristics and biases and how human behavior can be mapped into experiments.

5. Do it yourself. Define a research question meaningful for you, implement it in an experiment to run in class and/or online.

6. Advanced Topics. Bots, recruiting strategies, the MTurk platform, crowdsourcing, optimal experimental design, ethical considerations.

Format

This is an online course roughly following the structure outlined here:

https://nodegame.org/courses.htm

An introductory online seminar will present the course, then students will follow a number of do-at-your-own-pace video lectures explaining the slides. Students are expected to deliver two presentations (mid-term and final).

A group chat will be available on the Telegram app, available on all major mobile platform and on desktops. In this chat, students can ask technical and administrative questions, and interact with other fellow participants (e.g., to form groups).

A mailing list will be used for all official communications.

Obtaining the Credits

Students will earn credits for successfully completing Module 5. The submission of the final project will take place through the GitHub platform and a short, written report is to be included.

Both multiplayer (group-behavior) and single-player (decision tasks) projects are accepted. Group projects are encouraged; the ambition of the project is expected to increase with the group size (generally, group size should not exceed 4 participants, but exceptions will be considered).

In addition to completing Module 5, participants must deliver two presentations:

Mid-term project pitch. In 5-10minute presentation, students introduce their research design and their implementation plan to the class and receive feedback from the instructor and other fellow participants.

Final project presentation. In a 10-15minute presentation, students show the final the experiment is presented and played online and defend their design choices in a short Q&A session with the instructor and other fellow participants.

Bonus points. Participants can increase their final grade by actively interacting with other fellow participants through the official discussion media: chat, mailing list, and online presentations.

Prerequisites

There are no strict prerequisites for this course, but a quantitative background and previous programming knowledge are strong assets for succeeding in this course.

Description:
Inhalt:
Globale Gedächtnismodelle sind formale Prozessmodelle des menschlichen Gedächtnisses. Sie unterscheiden sich zu reinen Messmodellen (z.B. Signalentdeckungstheorie, Schwellenmodelle, …), dadurch, dass sie alle an Gedächtnisaufgaben beteiligten Strukturen und Prozesse (Enkodieren, Speichern, Abrufen) formal spezifizieren. Die zentrale gedächtnispsychologische Annahme ist, dass das Ergebnis von Abrufprozessen durch die Gesamtheit aller Lernerfahrungen bestimmt wird und nicht nur von der Gedächtnisrepräsentation einer einzelnen Erfahrung abhängt. Ausgehend von den in den 80er Jahren formulierten Modellen SAM und MINERVA 2 erarbeiten wir die Grundlagen und die Anwendung globaler Gedächtnismodelle und stellen den Bezug zu konkurrierenden Modellen dar. Darauf anschließend werden aktuelle Anwendungen und Entwicklungen globaler Gedächtnismodelle besprochen

Description:
Please note that this is a block course.

OpenSesame is a free, open-source, and cross-platform software for creating laboratory experiments. Many standard tasks can be implemented in OpenSesame via drag and drop using its graphical user interface. In addition, complex tasks can be realized through the underlying programming language Python. The goal of the workshop is to provide an introduction to both approaches. In doing so, the workshop involves both structured input from the instructor as well as a number of practical exercises so that participants can directly explore the features of OpenSesame. Besides, the workshop will introduce plug-ins that extend OpenSesame for specific purposes,  e.g., the psynteract plug-ins that implement real-time interactions between participants (as required in many economic games), and the mousetrap plug-ins that implement mouse-tracking during decision tasks (a method that is becoming increasingly popular in the cognitive sciences to measure preference development). Additional topics can be covered depending on the preferences of the workshop participants. No prior knowledge of the software or Python is required.

Description:
The software R is a computer programming language designed for statistical analysis and graphics. The first part of the course deals with a basic introduction to R, i.e. data handling, basic statistical analyses, the creation of graphics, and linear modeling including test for specially designed hypotheses. In the second part we use R as a programming language for cognitive modeling. We will simulate data based on mathematical models of cognitive functions and analyze these data with maximum likelihood parameter estimation techniques. At the end, I will introduce some advanced techniques, for example the creation of statistical reports with R.
The software package R is free and available on all major platforms (www.r-project.org). I also recommend the free and platform independent Software RStudio as a comfortable IDE for R (www.rstudio.com). A basic introduction to R can be found under:

Inhalt: Im Zuge der Replikationskrise in der Psychologie stellt sich die Frage, was gute psychologische Forschung ausmacht. Dieses Seminar beschäftigt sich mit dieser Frage. Im Rahmen dessen werden Studien aus unterschiedlichen psychologischen Bereichen hinsichtlich diverser Kriterien kritisch betrachtet, wie beispielsweise ob wir Comics tatsächlich als lustiger beurteilen, wenn wir durch einen Stift in unserem Mund unbewusst ein Lächeln simulieren, oder ob Frauen sich wirklich mächtiger fühlen, wenn sie eine Körperhaltung wie Wonder Woman einnehmen.
Ziel des Seminars ist, kritisches Lesen und Diskutieren von psychologischen Forschungsergebnissen zu vertiefen, sowie methodologische Neuerungen in der Forschungspraxis wie beispielsweise Open Science zu erlernen.

Empfohlen für: Studierende des Masters Psychologie

Erworben werden kann:

ECTS: 4

Voraussetzung: Die Inhalte der Vorlesung zu Forschungsmethoden werden als bekannt vorausgesetzt.

Anmeldung: über das Studierendenportal

Sprechstunde: nach Vereinbarung

Materialien: Materialien werden auf Ilias bereitgestellt, von den Studierenden sind jede Woche vor der Veranstaltung zwei Fragen einzusenden, die sich kritisch mit dem jeweiligen Text auseinandersetzen.

Description:
In diesem Seminar wird das Thema Arbeitsstress behandelt. Dabei fokussieren wir auf verschiedene Aspekte des Stressprozesses wie zum Beispiel Arbeitsbedingungen die im Zusammenhang mit Beanspruchung stehen, Stressbewältigungsprozesse bei den Mitarbeitenden sowie Ansätzen zum Stress-Management.
Das Seminar besteht aus zwei Teilen. Im ersten Teil erarbeiten wir gemeinsam anhand aktueller Forschungsliteratur den Forschungsstand zum Thema. In dieser Zeit haben die Studierenden Gelegenheit, sich für ein Thema zu entscheiden, das sie im Rahmen ihrer Hausarbeit sowie im zweiten Teil des Seminars in Projektgruppen vertieft bearbeiten.

Im Rahmen von Projektgruppen werden die Studierenden im zweiten Teil des Seminars die gelernten und selbst erarbeiteten Inhalte in Form von Broschüren, Postern etc. praxisnah umsetzen. Am Ende des Seminars erfolgt eine Präsentation der Projektgruppenergebnisse.

Neben einer inhaltlichen Diskussion legt das Seminar auch besonderes Gewicht auf die arbeits- und organisationspsychologischen Methoden, mit denen Arbeitsstress erforscht wird.

Description:

Das Lernen mit digitalen Medien weist zwei wesentliche Eigenschaften auf: Multiple Repräsentationsformate und Interaktivität. Diese Eigenschaften besitzen sowohl Potentiale als auch Herausforderungen beim Lernen.
Ausgehend von sich ergänzenden (kognitiven) Theorien des Lernens mit Multimedia werden verschiedene Designprinzipien vorgestellt, die sich darauf beziehen wie Informationen in multiplen Repräsentationen (z.B. Texten und Visualisierungen) dargeboten werden sollten. Ferner werden die Chancen und Risiken von Interaktivität (z.B. webbasierte Lernumgebungen; Simulationen) adressiert.
Im Kontext dieser Themen wird im Sinne von Aptitude-Treatment Interactions die Rolle des Einflusses unterschiedlicher Voraussetzungen der Lernenden (z.B. räumliches Vorstellungsvermögen; Visualisierer-Verbalisierer; Vorwissen…) und damit einhergehend die Potentiale adaptiver Lernumgebungen behandelt.
Zudem werden Prozessdaten, mit dem Schwerpunkt Blickbewegung und Pupillometrie, und deren Mehrwert für die Forschung (&Anwendung) thematisiert (z.B. Unterscheidung unterschiedlicher Strategien; Messung mentaler Beanspruchung während der Aufgabenbearbeitung).
Hierauf aufbauend wird die Erhebung von Blickbewegungsdaten exemplarisch durchgeführt und unterschiedlichen Analyseverfahren und Strategien zur Auswertung dieser Daten erarbeitet und angewendet.
Eigene Themenvorschläge für einzelne Sitzungen sind willkommen und finden Berücksichtigung – sofern sie in den übergeordneten thematischen Rahmen des Seminars passen und auch bei den Kommiliton*innen Interesse finden.

Description:
Die Nutzung von Eye Trackern zur Messung von Blickbewegungen und Pupillenänderungen wird durch immer günstigere Geräte in immer mehr psychologischen Anwendungsbereichen möglich. Dieses Seminar wird Ihnen zunächst eine kurze allgemeine Einführung in Eye Tracking und Pupillometrie sowie die dort verwendeten und auch theoretisch möglichen Maße bieten. Danach werden in einzelnen Referaten verschiedene Studien vorgestellt, die Blickbewegungsmaße und/oder pupillometrische Maße einsetzen, um (weitergehende) Erkenntnisse in psychologisch relevanten Fragestellungen zu erhalten. Dabei können Sie aus Studien zu ganz verschiedenen Inhaltsbereichen, wie z. B. klinischer Psychologie, Messung mathematischer Fähigkeiten und auch zu räumlichem Denken wählen. Darüber hinaus haben Sie auch die Möglichkeit eigen recherchierte Studien vorzustellen. Das Seminar wird so gestaltet sein, dass es Ihnen die Möglichkeit gibt, sich kritisch in Diskussionen mit den Studien auseinanderzusetzen. Ferner wird Ihnen auch die Möglichkeit gegeben eigene Idee zu entwickeln, wie die Nutzung von Eye Tracking und Pupillometrie optimiert werden kann, um bei zukünftigen psychologischen Fragestellungen noch bessere Einblicke zu liefern.

Description:
BM1/BN1 BM2/BN2 Denken und Verhalten im sozialen Kontext: „Psychologie und Geld“

Inhalt: Wozu brauchen wir Geld? Welche Funktion hat Geld? Was macht Geld mit uns? Wie denken wir über Geld nach? Das Konzept Geld ist aus unserem Leben nicht wegzudenken, in sehr vielen Bereichen unseres Alltags ist es präsent – und dies ziemlich unabhängig davon, ob wir wenig Geld oder viel Geld zur Verfügung haben. Wenn wir über Geld nachdenken, wird schnell ersichtlich, dass die ökonomische und die psychologische Perspektive auf Geld häufig eng verknüpft sind. Dabei kann man die Beziehung zwischen Geld und Psychologie aus zwei Richtungen betrachten: Einerseits beeinflussen psychologische Mechanismen, wie wir Geld wahrnehmen und wie wir Finanzentscheidungen treffen und andererseits beeinflusst Geld unser Denken, Erleben und Verhalten. Im Rahmen des Seminars sollen selektiv ausgewählte Fragestellungen näher betrachtet werden: „Macht Geld glücklich?“ „Welche Folgen sind zu erwarten, wenn Personen an Geld denken?“ „Welche psychologischen Konsequenzen sind beobachtbar, wenn Personen über ein sehr geringes Einkommen/Vermögen verfügen“, „Welche psychologischen Konsequenzen gehen mit einer sehr ungleichen Verteilung von Vermögen/Einkommen einher“, „Sind finanzielle Anreize geeignet, eine Leistungsverbesserung zu bewirken?“, etc.

Zeit: Montag 10.15-11.45, wöchentlich

Description:
Die Art und Weise, wie wir miteinander kommunizieren, unsere Freizeit verbringen und unserer Arbeit nachgehen, hat sich in den letzten Jahren und Jahrzehnten stark verändert – nicht nur, aber auch wegen der fortschreitenden technologischen Entwicklung und zunehmenden Verbreitung von Medien. Die Fragen, wie und warum Menschen Medien nutzen, wie sie Medieninhalte verarbeiten und welche Wirkungen und Folgen die Mediennutzung hat, sind von hoher individueller, ökonomischer und gesellschaftlicher Bedeutung. Die Vorlesung zur Einführung in die Medienpsychologie wird in diesem HWS gemeinsam mit Frau Prof. Mata angeboten und einen medien- und gesundheitspsychologischen Schwerpunkt haben. Dabei werden wir uns vor allem mit Wirkungen und Nebenwirkungen im Bereich Gesundheit und Well-Being auseinandersetzen: Welche Auswirkungen hat die Digitalisierung auf Gesundheit und Gesundheitsverhalten – neuer Wein in alten Schläuchen oder eine echte Revolution? Wie kann ich mich im mHealth-Dschungel orientieren? Wie wirksam ist mHealth? Wie beeinflussen digitale Freundschaften und soziale Medien Gesundheitsverhalten und Wohlbefinden? Welche Nebenwirkungen haben digitale Medien? Diese und andere Fragen werden wir anhand von aktueller Literatur und Beispielen vor einem kommunikationswissenschaftlichen und psychologischen Hintergrund bearbeiten.
