Der Kurs ist als Flipped Classroom Kurs konzipiert. Das bedeutet, die eigentlichen Inhalte sind alle auf Video vorhanden, diese müssen die Studierenden vor Besuch der Veranstaltungen jeweils gesehen haben. Im Classroom werden dann nur noch die Konzepte vertieft und diskutiert sowie praktische Übungen durchgeführt.
