Teaching and Learning Strategies

Active Learning is encouraged and participation is facilitated  through small class size, role-play and e-learning activities via Moodle, the Virtual Learning Environment. The use of simple authentic texts ( abridged and use of sub-titles) with audio and audio-visual materials provides an introduction to modern media in German/Austria and underpins the contemporary focus of relevant topics. Encouragement to organise conversation and social events with native speakers ( e.g. Erasmus students from German speaking countries). Tandem Learning Initiative with Hochschule Brandenburg, February 2021 is an example of this active collaboration.
