Seminar Data Science for Psychologists
The course Data Science for Psychologists provides an introduction to data science in R and conveys fundamental skills of data literacy and conducting reproducible research.  The curriculum is tailored to the needs of psychologists, but is also suited for students of the humanities and other biological or social sciences. It is targeted at advanced undergraduate students (with some familiarity with quantitative research methods, but little or no background in computer programming).

Seminar Introduction to Data Science (using R, ADILT)
This course provides an introduction to data science for students of any discipline with little or no background in data analysis or computer programming. Based on notions of representation, measurement, and modeling, we examine key data types (e.g., logicals, numbers, text) and learn to clean, summarize, transform, and visualize (rectangular) data.  By reflecting on the relations between representations, tasks, and tools, the course promotes data literacy and cultivates reproducible research practices that enable and precede any practical use of programming or statistics.

Seminar Soziale Rationalität
In this seminar we will first examine basic notions of individual and social rationality. We will then familiarize ourselves with various phenomena of social rationality (e.g., social heuristics, group decisions, wisdom of crowds, opinion dynamics, social sampling, moral reasoning) and sketch and explore some of the surrounding controversies.  Finally, we will investigate the implications of these approaches in applied contexts and domains.  The seminar is structured in a reading group format. All participants study the same text and every participant leads a particular discussion once (as part of a collaborative group of 2–3 peers).
