- Day courses: 8 hrs à 45 min (Friday) or 6 hrs à 45 min (Saturday)

Credit Points ECTS Half-week Courses
Please note: It is possible to give female students credit points (according to ETCS) for their performance in half-week courses. Please be sure to indicate what the requirements are for awarding a credit point (ETCS system) in your course. The prerequisite for the awarding of credit points (ECTS) is at least a Bachelor's degree from a university as the lecturer's degree.
The awarding of credit points (according to ECTS) is based on the semester hours to be completed, preparatory and follow-up work, as well as the course content. As a rule, the workload of a credit point (ECTS) comprises 30 units of 45 minutes each. The course hours (HW = 16 units) are included, which means that the participants must complete an additional 14* 45 minutes of work for one credit point (ECTS). This can be done in advance e.g. as preparation of a presentation for the course or afterwards as elaboration of a topic of the course or as exercise task(s).
A maximum of 1 credit point (ECTS) can therefore be awarded for a half-week course. Credit points (ECTS) are awarded in cooperation with the programme committee and Furtwangen University.
Regular deadline for participants: 4 weeks after the end of the course.
Regular submission of results by lecturers: 6 weeks after the end of the course.
Information on Awarding of Grades
Grading is only possible upon prior request and cannot be demanded retroactively.
The following grade distribution is possible at HFU:
1; 1.3 = very good = an excellent performance;
1.7; 2; 2.3 = good = a performance that is significantly above average;
2.7; 3; 3.3 = satisfactory = a performance that meets average requirements;
3.7; 4 = sufficient = a performance which, despite its shortcomings, still meets the requirements;
5 = insufficient = a performance that no longer meets the requirements due to considerable deficiencies.
Issue of Certificates of Participation
Lecturers sign all certificates. Certificates without credit points - or with the necessary work already completed - can be handed out to the participants on site after successful course attendance. The lecturer notes each issue and the results of the credit points on a list and hands it in to the Netzwerk F.I.T. Certificates for which the proof of credit point achievement is still outstanding are handed in - signed by the lecturer - to the Netzwerk F.I.T. After six weeks of processing time, the lecturer submits the achievement of the credit point to the Netzwerk F.I.T. Only then will the complete certificate for the participant be sent by the Netzwek F.I.T.
Information on the Teaching Assignment/Travel Expenses
As soon as it is known whether a course will take place, the lecturers will be informed, but no later than four weeks before the course begins.
For your work as a private lecturer, you will then receive a teaching assignment from Furtwangen University (information sheet on the teaching assignment), and the teaching work will be paid.
All travel and accommodation costs incurred will be reimbursed in accordance with the Baden-Württemberg Travel Costs Act (LRKG BW). As a rule, travel by taxi cannot be covered. A hotel contingent will be reserved for lecturers. You will be informed of this by e-mail. New: Breakfast will also be reimbursed from now on! Please submit your hotel bill and original travel receipts to the Netzwerk F.I.T. as soon as possible after the end of the event with the original travel ticket, but within six months at the latest.

It is imperative to meet the deadline, otherwise the travel expenses as well as the hotel costs can no longer be reimbursed.
