Contents of the Basic Course in Teaching at the Faculty of Veterinary Medicine

The Faculty offers mandatory introductory modules on teaching methods. The “Basic Course in Teaching” is offered at the beginning of every semester and addresses the topics on teaching and didactics, E-Learning and examinations.

The overview shows the contents of the Basic Course in Teaching. This course takes place twice a year at the Faculty. Participation is mandatory for all teachers (except for those writing habilitations and those who already have a teaching qualification certificate).

The “SUPPORT for teaching” university teaching skills program at Freie Universität Berlin offers instructors at our university an opportunity to prepare themselves for their teaching duties on a targeted basis, talk with colleagues within an interdisciplinary network, and earn the Hochschuldidaktisches Zertifikat (Certificate in University Teaching) from Freie Universität Berlin. The modular certificate program is especially geared toward junior instructors with little teaching experience, who should start out with the basic module. Courses in the advanced module can be chosen freely and are generally open to all instructors.
