Information for Teachers

Teaching at the School VI Medicine and Health Sciences is committed to the Teaching Mission Statement of Faculty VI and is based on a common mission statement for teaching at Oldenburg University. It is characterised by a diverse range of studies from medicine, health sciences and natural sciences. Subject-specific and subject-didactic content, theories, concepts and methods as well as practical skills are therefore taught in diverse study forms and formats. These range from the classic lecture to dialogue-oriented small group formats and from practical exercises to semester-long projects.

Teaching in the degree programmes of the School VI

If you have any questions about teaching in the study programmes of the School VI, please contact the respective contact person for the study programmes (see contact field).

Teachers in and those interested in teaching the model study programme in human medicine can find further information here.

Course evaluation

The course evaluation (LVE) is a systematic and standardised instrument for collecting student feedback on a course. In terms of a feedback culture, it ensures an exchange between students and teachers. It offers teachers the opportunity to recognise the strengths and weaknesses of their own courses. For the School, it serves to ensure the quality of teaching by developing and implementing possibilities for improvement in the degree programmes.

Information about course evaluation at the University of Oldenburg and the contact persons in the degree programmes can be found here.

Further information on course evaluation in the model degree programme in human medicine can be found here.

Teachers in School VI also have the opportunity to take advantage of individual teaching advice and teaching observation. Further information can be found here.

Teaching load controlling

In accordance with § 18 LVVO, School VI ensures that teaching obligations are fulfilled by members of the faculty and documents this in the campus management system. The personal teaching load is to be fulfilled primarily by offering the courses that are provided for according to the examination regulations or the curriculum. The different types of courses are weighted differently when counting towards the teaching load. An overview of the types of courses in the School VI can be found here available here. Confirmation of the personal teaching load takes place semester by semester. Information on this is provided by the Dean's Office of the School VI.

Information for lecturers

With regard to the involvement of lecturers in teaching in the degree programmes of the School VI, the guidelines for the awarding of teaching assignments of the University of Oldenburg (as of 26.09.2018) apply in addition to Section 34 of the Lower Saxony Higher Education Act as amended.

Teaching by university members and staff shall be carried out within the scope of their personal teaching obligations. All persons remunerated from budgetary funds who have an academic employment contract with the university have teaching obligations. As a rule, these are the professors, academic staff of the university and also the lecturers. These are usually the professors, academic staff of the university and also the persons entrusted with the administration of a professorship. Normally, they do not need a separate teaching contract. Title teaching cannot be remunerated as a matter of principle.

The integration of teaching assistants is always subject to the criteria of the person responsible for teaching. If you have any questions, please contact the programme coordinator of the respective programme.

Information on digital teaching

In the wake of the Covid pandemic, digital teaching in the higher education context has gained new impetus and significant importance. Even if in the meantime a return to face-to-face teaching has taken place for the most part, innovative (digital) teaching-learning formats are to be maintained and further developed. The Participate@uol project, funded by the Innovation in Higher Education Foundation, was established to provide a space for this.

The university didactics publishes further information on its website and offers regular events on digital teaching.

On the web pages of Medical Didactics you will find information on digital teaching in the School VI.
