About the project

The two-phase project funding available within the framework of the Quality Pact for Teaching by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research from 2012-2016 (funding reference: 01PL12) as well as from 2017-2020 (funding reference: 01PL17068) will enable Kiel University to intensively improve the quality of its teaching and further expand its support services for students within the framework of PerLe – Projekt erfolgreiches Lehren und Lernen (project for successful teaching and learning).

In the second phase of funding from 2017-2020, PerLe will focus on the further development of three interlinked core areas:

Support for academic success: the transition from school to university & early stages of study
Growing numbers of courses available and a larger, heterogeneous student community make the provision of support during the preparatory, transitional and early stages of studying a central task. For this reason, the project sets up refresher courses and trainings in its first phase – in addition to (subject) specific orientation days. These will be further developed.

Focus on the future: career orientation services for students
Interdisciplinary services incorporating various professional fields form the basis of comprehensive career orientation for students even before they finish university. In the first phase of the project, types of work experience support and follow-up, lectures with practical experience and relevance to projects as well as social involvement in teaching were designed to link theory with professional practice. These will be further developed and systematically incorporated into degree programmes together with career orientation in the areas of research and science, society and business, as well as education and communication.

Training in teaching and learning: courses for teachers and tutors
Incentives and support for teachers are required to bring about developments in studying and teaching. In the first project phase, training courses for both teachers and tutors were designed for this purpose. In the second funding period, these courses will be expanded to include other important fields of work, such as processing findings from research into teaching and learning for teaching practice or the incorporation of digital teaching formats. In this way, these measures and PerLe funding for innovative teaching will continue to facilitate individual training paths as well as innovative teaching in the future, too.
