Examination-immanent courses (PI-LV) are compulsory. If there is an important reason for a lack of a course, a replacement work must be done from 2 hours of absence. In the case of cumulative absences of more than 4 hours, the course is judged "not sufficient" and must be repeated. Important reasons are, according to the examination regulations of the WU, any that are beyond the disposition of the student (illness, accident, death of a close relative). Vocational obligations are not considered an important reason in the sense of the examination regulations, since these are at the disposition of the students.
The focus of the course is on the reflection of group dynamic processes with a focus on diversity in teams and individual and group-related experience learning. In addition to this practical experience and the reflection, various cases will be provided and analysis will be made by integrating various theoretical and conceptual frameworks.
The course is immanent in the examination. The grading consists of three
- Individual reflection (20%);
- Project work: project setting up, processing and presentation of results (written analysis/project report and presentation of the results in the respective project team) (40%) and
- Examination on the topic (40%).
