Service and Support

Planning and holding classes, teaching content, supervising students, evaluating performance, developing modules and programs - all these are demanding tasks. Sometimes it is helpful to hear an opinion from outside, to pick up impulses or to be referred to a competent colleague with experience.

As a service unit, the teaching service supports teachers in the preparation, implementation and further development of courses as well as modules and study programs with reflection and consulting services.
