“Teaching Competence” Certificate

Within the scope of the “Teaching Competence” certificate the persons producing knowledge develop and expand competences related to teaching in a focused way.  With the work at practical research questions, the professional advancement of one’s teaching abilities is encouraged. The results reached are communicated in an exchange with the scientific community.

Didactical and Methodical Tips 

This series of methodical-didactical tips supports interested university teachers in planning their teaching lessons in the course of a semester. The course covers the spectrum from subjects that are relevant from the start of course planning to dialogue with students to the conclusion of the course including self-evaluation.

eLearning Certificate

The eLearning certificate is a joint initiative of universities, advanced technical colleges and regional education organisations which aims at offering a sound education in e-learning and new media.

The eLearning Certificate offers qualification on two levels. In level I information on specific user know-how, creative use of e-learning platforms, design of multi-media teaching materials, didactical background knowledge and information on copyright and data protection law is imparted.  Level II demands either the design of an online course and/or multi-media teaching materials.

The imparting of gender aspects is a fundamental aspect of the profile of the University of Innsbruck:
Imparting of gender aspects in teaching:
The field of “Gender Studies” strives towards a comprehensive transmission of theoretical-reflective as well as political realistic contents in all of the teachings at the LFU.

Linking and publishing gender-related research and teaching:
Researchers of different disciplines link on the “Gender Research” interfaculty research platform and make these fertile synergies accessible to students and other interested persons in the “Gender Lectures” that take place semestrally.

Higher Education Didactics I & Higher Education Didactics II 

These are courses for young academics (PhD-students) which are offered within the scope of the generic competences. Participants deal with the fundamental subjects of higher education didactics. They are able to design and assess teaching units based on higher education didactic criteria. 

Schaufenster Lehre

This is a publication venue for projects from the course of “Learning Teaching” of the University of Innsbruck. Young academics may add these publications to their list of publications and this is a plus factor for the increasingly demanded didactical aptitude. It is a platform for publishing scientific publications. For being qualified as e-publication for the Schaufenster Lehre the work must be based on the criteria for practical research and must have passed a peer review process. Practical research is understood as research in the context of one’s own teaching practice with the aim of further developing the quality of the activities of one’s teaching.
