– In addition to attendance time, the continuous learning process is continued through e-learning.

– In the 2. and In the 3rd trimester, the one-week excursions to Spain and Vietnam take place. One of the two excursions is obligatory.

Learning is promoted sustainably through various forms. The course content is taught in plenary sessions with the help of keynote speeches and texts, educational discussions, e-learning and examples. In small groups and home groups, the participants go through reflection and feedback loops that promote the knowledge process. Contact with the lecturers is possible at any time. Action learning transfers practical, topical issues faced by learners into the classroom and thus into theory, leading them to a solution that can be put into practice. Practice influences theory and not the other way around.
