ProLehre

Welcome to ProLehre,
the department for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education at the Technische Universität München. We focus on supporting faculty with respect to their teaching. We provide a variety of offers for lecturers to further enhance their teaching skills, such as workshops, teaching consultations or general advice.

Counseling and Support for Academic Teachers

As internationalisation constitutes one part of the TUM’s mission statement, ProLehre seeks to meet the needs of all the teaching staff, whether German or international. Therefore, members of the international teaching staff are welcome to contact us any time, e.g. for general advice or if they would like one of our team to visit them in their lecture or seminar. Please find here a list of ProLehre contact persons assigned to the different faculties.

Workshops on Higher Education

We offer a lot of courses to help staff to improve their teaching skills; unfortunately, only some of them are in English (and some of those aren't intended primarily for English native speakers). In the summer term 2017 we offer the following English workshops:

  • Certificate of Learning and Teaching in Higher Education

    If you stay at TUM for two academic years or longer, you have the opportunity to obtain the Certificate for Teaching in Higher Education of the Bavarian Universities (ProfiLehre Zertifikat Hochschullehre der Bayerischen Universitäten) introductory, advanced, or specialisation level.

  • In order to obtain the basic-level certificate you have to complete 60 working units (one unit equals 45 min.) attending basic courses in 5 different topics, with at least:
    • 8 working units in A: Teaching and Learning Concepts. Theory, methods, and materials
    • 8 working units in B: Presentation and Communication. Skills for effective public speaking

If you are interested in obtaining one of the certificates, please contact Ellen Taraba or Dr. Judit Tuschak in order to give us the opportunity to organize workshops in English in appropriate time and in sufficient quantity.
