New Pan-European Elective (FWPM) starting in March 2022: Motto "Edutainment/Gamification"
In the last week of the term holidays (so-called "PLV period") at the end of the winter term 2021/22 from March 7-11, 2022 (plus short online preparational and follow-up activities in the days before and after this period), the English-language elective (FWPM) "Total Immersion Week - Advanced Regional and Transversal Skills" will take place for the first time as part of the new Erasmus+ programme track "Blended Intensive Programme (BIP)" on the virtual campus of Aschaffenburg UAS. The elective is creditable with 5 ECTS towards the profile "BW/BWR International".
A total of five places are available for students from Aschaffenburg UAS. The other participants come from our partner universities in France (Université de Bretagne Sud), Spain (Universidad Málaga), Finland (Turku University of Applied Sciences) and Sweden (Mid Sweden University). In the future, the elective will be hosted by one of these European partners in turn each semester.
Upon request, there is a limited number of places available also for students from other TH AB partner universities (also from outside of Europe).
The motto of the first FWPM-BIP at TH Aschaffenburg is "Edutainment/Gamification"; as a project task, the participants will jointly design an intercultural learning game. The underlying concept of Total Immersion includes language taster courses/tandem partnerships as well as cultural activities and excursions matching the motto – in addition to subject-specific and intercultural content.
If you are at least in the 3rd semester of a Bachelor programme and are interested in this elective, you can apply for one of the five places for students of Aschaffenburg UAS exclusively by sending in a letter of motivation in English (1 page, Arial 11p, 1.5 spacing) to the International Office and Prof. Dr. Renate Link by January 15, 2022.
If you are a student from a TH AB partner university, please proceed likewise (except for UBS, UMA, TUAS and MIUN).
For further questions, please contact Prof. Dr. Renate Link.
International Project Days go Virtual – Virtual Team Collaboration and Intercultural Communication in Challenging Times
The COVID-19 pandemic has put us on a fast track to acquiring new skills in all walks of life. One thing we all encountered was the need to communicate virtually while building rapport. Virtual communication and collaboration however are here to stay and will grow in importance in the future even when the pandemic is over. Given the great success of 2021/the great feedback we received from participants of our first virtual IPD we will build on these topics and continue to create a supportive, motivating interna-
tional learning experience for students of Aschaffenburg UAS and (virtually) incoming students from our partner universities.
- Mixed virtual, international students teams
- Online learning experience and practical application of the learning content
- Useful input from international experts from the world of business and academia
- Exchange of ideas and experience across different cultures
- Opportunity to gain 2 ECTS for undergraduate students of Aschaffenburg UAS and international students from partner universities
