Lending and literature search

The online course "Good Scientific Practice" is unlocked on ILIAS for all students at Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences. The course shows which rules and norms of the scientific system are already relevant during studies and how research is conducted honestly. Interested students can work through the course individually at any time. The course was developed as part of the state-wide project helpBW, which is being realised under the leadership of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) in cooperation with the Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences and other universities in Baden-Württemberg. Other online courses in the area of information and writing skills are currently being developed.
