Active participation in courses

The subject-specific annex for the subject Protestant Theology and Religious Education (Annex 8 of the BPO) contains regulations on active participation in courses under point 4: (1) Modules represent a process of learning, research and teaching. The individual courses of a module are closely interlinked. Regular active participation in each module course ensures the success of the module as a whole.

(2) As a prerequisite for admission to a module examination or the awarding of credit points, active participation may be required in the modules for courses that convey teaching content practically-visually or primarily through dialogue between students and teachers (e.g. seminars, colloquia, exercises, excursions, internships), provided this is necessary to achieve the objective of the course. The performances of active participation are ungraded and must be balanced in terms of the workload in relation to the number of credits to be awarded.

(3) Active participation can include: Regular attendance (As a rule, regular attendance is when the student has not missed more than 20% of the course time) and participation in the courses, preparation and follow-up of the course material, preparation of the course material, preparation of the course material, preparation of the course material, preparation of the course material, preparation of the course material, preparation of the course material, preparation of the course material.

The respective applicable criteria of active participation are determined at the beginning of the course by the lecturers in mutual consultation with the students present, presented transparently and set down in writing.

Module descriptions

The module descriptions provide essential information on the modules, for example the competence objectives, the content and workload, the form of teaching and examination as well as the persons responsible for the module and those authorised to examine it. You will find the module descriptions as an icon in front of the module titles in the course catalogue. Please select the degree programme first and then the category "subject" for the subject modules. The module descriptions of a degree programme can also be exported as a PDF module handbook.

Module examinations

Examinations are module-related and are given their legal framework by the examination regulations and their appendices (subject-specific appendices of the subjects and appendix 3 to the professionalisation area). They are specifically determined in the module descriptions for each semester with the announcement of the courses offered.

The persons responsible for the modules inform the lecturers involved in their modules before the start of the course about the form of the module examination and about the extent to which certain performances of individual module courses can be included in the module examination (e.g. as partial portfolio performances). Please address any queries regarding the module examination directly to the module supervisors.
