Courses & Certification

in Higher Education Pedagogy & Media Literacy

Our Competency Model for Higher Education helps you evaluate your teaching ability and to think about ways to further and deepen your knowledge and skills. You can document your progress bolster your career outlook by keeping a teaching portfolio and acquiring a certificate.

If you are interested, we recommend you contact your department liaison, who will gladly advise you concerning our various programs and services. If you have wishes or ideas for specific courses or online-seminars, please contact out Higher Education Teaching team.

Registration for courses in the Winter Semester 2020 will open on Tuesday, September 15.

Basic Level Courses

These courses provide the essential tools for good teaching. You will understand the mechanisms of teaching and learning, discover the factors that make university teaching successful, and learn to apply these to your specific teaching contexts. You will develop your presentation skills and learn how to guide your students’ learning through thoughtfully constructed evaluations. You will get to know a range of possible roles you might adopt as a teacher in addition to techniques to motivate and support your students’ learning outside the classroom.

The basic level certificate is granted upon completion of 60 study units (45 minutes each).

Construction in progress

We restructure our programm

We continue to develop our course program and are switching from individual courses in the various areas to structured compact courses. This will give you the opportunity to obtain the Basic Level Certificate within one semester. If you have already attended foundation courses and are still missing work units in individual areas, you will be automatically contacted with more detailed information at the beginning of March before registration begins. In case we did not reach out to you yet, please do not hesitate to contact us.
