Challenges and Learning Support

perfect Joomla Theme


Approaches such as problem-based or experience-based learning are increasingly finding their way into formal education - and this approach is also being adopted by vocational schools. Reflective learning is often equated with practical and problem-oriented learning.

This has an impact on everyday teaching and even on the setting of examination questions.

However, there are great challenges in establishing the learning environment and the practice of this approach in the students' everyday life. In order to be able to actually organise their own learning, learners need to reflect on and align not only (1) problem-oriented learning experiences but also (2) their basic assumptions and attitudes towards learning and (3) the goals of their learning. We work with you on suitable concepts and practical examples. We also like to work with portfolios.


Structured Collection of documents and projects with active participation of students on learning outcomes and learning processes. - Reflection on the basis of jointly established objectives and criteria. - Discuss learning and performance

Working with portfolios serves on the one hand to link teaching and practice and on the other hand as a knowledge carrier for collective knowledge management when working with e-portfolios. It is usually used as an instrument for learning process documentation, reflection and support. Then it is related to job-related standard fields. However, it can also be particularly helpful in networking teaching and practice, by working on the gaps between knowledge and competence. Knowledge should be available, adaptable and applicable in concrete situations at any time and independent of location. From a formal point of view, an e-portfolio can even become an essential component of management certificates. For the technical implementation we are happy to use the open source e-portfolio system Mahara.
