Do you have several ideas for the implementation of digital teaching and learning formats in your courses, but no time to put the ideas into practice? You can get support from student assistants via the e-tutor programme. Our e-tutors bring time and know-how for implementing ideas in digital teaching and learning formats.

Which contents will be taught?

e-tutors are trained once a year by the Digital Education Department in the use and creation of digital formats, leading to a certificate. The training course takes place mainly during the non-teaching period and is carried out in a blended learning format that enables participants to experience and try out best practices in digital teaching for themselves.

I Training Phase

The training programme of the student e-tutors takes place in a blended learning format, i.e. we combine face-to-face meetings with online learning phases. The online phases of the training programme are designed as a problem-based learning environment and combine both self-guided and cooperative learning phases. The cooperation between teaching staff and e-tutor is also firmly anchored in the programme.

II Practical Phase

The e-tutors supervise a specific course (in consultation with the respective member of teaching staff) and actively contribute their knowledge from the training cycle to the course design. They also provide technical support for Moodle and other digital teaching-learning tools. As a link between teaching staff and students, they take on important transfer tasks.

III Reflection and Conclusion Phase

The reflection phase extends over the entire duration of the e-tutor programme. There is a continuous reflection on both the training programme and the practical implementation during the semester. In the final phase, we will take a joint look at the results of the newly created teaching-learning formats and invite interested members of the university community to the final event. The e-tutors receive a certificate at the end of the programme.

Current Dates for the e-Tutor Training Phase

The dates of the training phase are for all future e-tutors who will be supported and trained by the Digital Education department. Applications for the training places for student employees are possible twice a year, in July and December.
