Module 1 – Foundation Module (80-90 WU)
The foundation module offers you the opportunity to work with the core questions and issues of teaching and learning. In addition to organizing teaching/learning processes, the module focuses on a (self-)reflective analysis of the role of the instructor, as well as the teaching/learning culture in your own subject as well as in other disciplines. Methods for activating and motivating students play a central role, as does the question of what “good teaching” means in general.
Module 2 – Consolidation Module (60-70 WU)
In the consolidation module, you can follow your individual educational goals and desires by deepening your knowledge of particular (and to some extent, subject-specific) areas of teaching/learning processes in the context of higher education. The topics begun in the foundation module can be expanded upon. For the consolidation module, we recommend expanding your knowledge with an intensive analysis of the topics “Testing and Grading”, “Advising Students”, and “Evaluation”.
Module 3 – Specialization Module (60-70 WU)
In the specialization module, you have the possibility of designing and structuring your own teaching, using the research-based perspective you have developed in the previous modules.
You will examine your own teaching within the context of your subect according to the ideas of the „Scholarship of Teaching and Learning“, using those research methods that are familiar to you. The conclusion of the module – and, with it, of the entire certification – will be finalized by the publication of your results in the reviewed online journal “die hochschullehre “.
Note: Please also note the requirements for each topic/area (see below).
