Our certificate for (subject) tutor qualification is aimed at all subject tutors and trains them holistically in the areas of: didactic and subject didactic basics, methodical-didactic planning and design of a tutorial, design of an environment conducive to learning, dealing with group dynamic processes as well as difficult teaching/learning situations and much more.

It consists of one:

  • Basic module
  • Advanced module
  • Practical module

All parts can be taken independently of each other. However, participation in the basic module is a prerequisite for admission to the other modules.

It is accredited as a programme by the Netzwerk Tutorienarbeit and is based on its quality standards.

  • Basic module (subject) tutor qualification

    Target group: student tutors (max. 12 participants per winter semester).

    Student (subject) tutors look after students. They provide subject-specific support and give them the opportunity to solve exercises and problems from lectures in small groups.

    In order to cope well with these responsible tasks, student tutors need different knowledge and skills. The technical know-how forms the basis. In addition, organisational skills, didactic knowledge and the own role clarity are important for success.

    Goals: The participants

    • work out the basics of learning psychology, interpret them and incorporate the findings into their tutorials (neurodidactics, learning strategies, etc.).

    • determine and practise tutor behaviour conducive to learning.

    • discuss supportive tutor behaviour conducive to learning and integrate the results into their course.

    • know and practice the principle of "minimal help."

    • train methodical and social competences for adequate situation management for tutors.

  • Advanced module tutor qualification "Fundamentals of Rhetoric and Presentation

    Target group: student (subject) tutors (max. 9 participants per winter semester).

    The voice is a central tool for tutors in their tutorials. With the knowledge of the targeted use of the voice, tutors can work on their own charisma as well as on their effect on the tutors.

    How do I use my voice gently and correctly? How can I practice clear pronunciation? How do I make a successful presentation and which factors do I have to consider? How can I develop sovereignty over my voice and use it positively?

    The seminar will deal with these and other questions. In addition, this workshop promotes interdisciplinary and inter-institutional exchange between participants.

    Objectives:

    The participants

    • know the functional circle for articulation and voice.
    • practice breathing techniques and articulation intensively.
    • evaluate speech situations with the help of the WOGAMPITZ method and apply the findings to their presentation situations.
    • learn methods for structuring, building and outlining presentations and apply them.
    • give each other feedback on the respective exercise units
    • exchange information about their work and the workshop topic with their colleagues.
  • Advanced module tutor qualification "Fundamentals of Communication

    Target group: Student (subject) tutors (max. 9 participants per winter semester)

    The ability to communicate well, i.e. to exchange information as smoothly as possible, is essential in various situations in life. In the context of teaching, such an ability can be the decisive component for the success of a course.

    What does good communication depend on? Which influencing factors do I have to take into account? How do I prepare myself for important conversations? How can I position and assert my interests well? How do I manage to de-escalate conflicts and deal with problems constructively? These and many other questions are the subject of the seminar and are to be worked on together with the participants.

    The interdisciplinary and inter-institutional exchange between the participants forms another central objective of the workshop.

    Objectives:

    The participants

    • work out the levels of communication and their meaning.
    • discuss methods for structuring, building and structuring conversations and prepare themselves for different conversations.
    • practise active listening and sending I-messages work out and practise with each other different conversation situations.
    • give each other feedback on the respective practice units
    • exchange information about their work and the workshop topic with their colleagues.
  • Advanced module tutor qualification "How the group learns to walk".

    Target group: student (subject) tutors (max. 12 participants per winter semester).

    The actions of tutors in their tutorials have a decisive impact on the group of students they supervise. How do I prepare myself properly? What do I have to consider when working with students and how do I have to guide them? What group dynamic processes take place in my tutorial and how can I control them? What role do I have to play in the respective processes? How do I actively shape my tutorial? The seminar will deal with these and other questions. In addition, this workshop is intended to stimulate interdisciplinary and inter-institutional exchange between the participants.

    Objectives: The participants

    • work out and discuss what a group is and how group processes work.
    • analyse the developmental phases of a group process and link these to the well-known TCI model.
    • work out suitable teaching methods for the different phases of an event and try them out.
    • give feedback and discuss the tried out teaching methods also with regard to the question how they can use them in the next tutorial.
    • exchange ideas with their colleagues on the topic.
