In the course of this project, the range of courses will be extended by blended learning components and evaluated. The extension of the seminar to include online teaching will create sustainable resources for teaching the basics from which other groups. Medical students who want to work with qualitative research methods in their doctoral thesis can also benefit. The evaluation entails plural methods. The results will be published and incorporated into further activities.
