This module is offered in both a 20 ECTS and 30 ECTS version.
The goal of this module is to gain experience in anthropological field work and apply theoretical and methodological knowledge, skills and competencies, so that the anthropological field work contributes to developing a specific technological product or process, or to the evaluation of a specific technological product or process. The student has to be able to conduct the field work independently, generate knowledge from this work and demonstrate skills to disseminate the field work insights and how this could inform product / process development or product / process testing. The project has to discuss how the research approach ensures validity and reliability (in consideration of the used research methods) and demonstrate how anthropological field work is relevant to product / process development or product / process testing. The project will be based in a public, private or grassroots organisation specific to product / process development or testing.
Students who complete this module can:
