Qualitätspakt Lehre: ForstAintegriert [EN]


At the beginning of 2017, the project ForstAintegriert (heterogeneity as a potential) followed directly on the forerunner titled ForstA (research-based studies from the outset). ForstA, which from 2012 – 2016 was funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) in the frame of “Qualitätspakt Lehre”, helped the University of Bremen to further sharpen profile as an “institution of research-based learning”. The valuable experiences gained from this project form the basis for the qualitative development and institutional integration of ForstAintegriert, which will run at the University of Bremen from 2017 – 2020. The overall goal of ForstAintegriert is the sustainable quality improvement of teaching and learning at the University of Bremen due to researched-based learning. The following five measure packages were developed to achieve this goal:

Resonanz: The magazine for teaching and learning at the University of Bremen

There are many examples of good teaching at the University of Bremen. Within the framework of ForstA and ForstAintegriert, these examples are to be made more well-known and serve as inspiration for others. Innovative teaching concepts, projects promoting research-based learning in the early stages of studies, measures for dealing with heterogeneity, or models of student participation; there is no end to ideas that make teaching more than a frontal exercise and memorizing knowledge. The University is characterized by a multitude of creative teachers and students, although this is rarely a topic of discussion. This is where Resonanz comes in, a magazine dedicated to aspects of teaching and learning. All members of the University are invited to submit articles surrounding the whole topic of teaching. The blog format also allows interactive discussion. Resonanz appears online once every semester, and it also comes as a print edition. You can find the author references [here].
