Communication and language studies are an important part of the degree. The pedagogical principles of the Language Centre indicate what we are committed to as a community in order to guarantee quality education that supports the objectives of the degree. The principles have emerged from the collaborative work of the staff. They guide the activities and development of the Language Centre.
Internationality and cultural knowledge
Internationality and cultural knowledge are at the core of the Language Centre's activities and teaching. Cultural sensitivity is important to us. We support and exploit multilingualism and promote intercultural cooperation in all our activities.
Communality and well-being
We maintain an open and encouraging atmosphere. We engage in collaboration between languages and units, as well as between staff and students. Experimentation, transparency and a relaxed environment strengthen our sense of community and well-being. Through our quality operations, we influence the meaningfulness of our work and the well-being of our staff.
Reflective working culture
Our working culture is based on good collegial interaction, discussion and peer support. Our teaching is based on research and we develop our expertise in projects, internal training and research groups. For us, quality means the constructive alignment of teaching as well as exploratory practices that are based on a diverse feedback culture, communality, creativity and stability in employment relations.
We plan and implement teaching that takes into account different target groups and a wide range of learners. We guide students to active learning in and outside the classroom. We put effort into supportive and reflective interaction between students and the teacher, as well as among students. We support the lifelong learning of students.
Flexible learning environments and digitalisation
Pedagogically appropriate digitalisation and diverse, flexible learning environments support the active participation of students in the teaching and learning process, as well as working life skills. We enable a diverse teaching and learning process through digitalisation. We develop our digital skills purposefully.
