Preliminary Course "Writing Lab"

How do I find the right literature for my presentation? What is the best way to manage the large amounts of reading in my courses? What is a scientific source? How do I write a discussion paper? What is the best way to take notes during lectures to help me prepare for the written exam? When you begin your university studies, there are so many questions you did not encounter in high school. The preliminary course Writing Lab is designed to help you embrace these new tasks. You will get to know various work methods and then apply them in practice together with the other participants.
