Credit points according to ECTS & grades

Sie können als Dozentin eines Halbwochenkurses Credit Points (nach ECTS) vergeben, wenn alle folgenden Bedingungen erfüllt sind:

  • Sie selbst haben mindestens einen Bachelorabschluss einer Hochschule .
  • Die Teilnehmerin leistet für einen Credit Point einen Arbeitsumfang in Höhe von 30 Einheiten à 45 Minuten. Dazu zählen Kursinhalt, Vor- und Nacharbeit.
    For example: preparation of a presentation for the course or afterwards as an elaboration of a topic of the course or as an exercise task(s).
    With a course duration of 16 units of 45 minutes each, the participant must also complete an additional 14 45-minute sessions.
  • A maximum of 1 ECTS credit point can be awarded for a half-week course. Credit points (ECTS) are awarded in cooperation with the programme committee and Furtwangen University.
  • Lecturers whose half-week course has the character of a lecture can be reimbursed for taking the examination if the participant is a student at Furtwangen University.
Procedure
  1. You consider the requirements that a participant must fulfill in order to receive a credit point (e.g. successfully completing a homework assignment).
  2. You specify the requirements when submitting your course and whether or not a grade can be awarded for them.
  3. At the beginning of the course, the participant informs you that she would like to earn an ECTS with or without a grade.
  4. The participant provides the service - usually up to 4 weeks after the end of the event.
  5. You inform the F.I.T. network whether the work has been completed and, if so, the grade. And you send the coursework or examination for archiving.
