What are Bauhaus.Module?
How can aspiring artists and civil engineers learn from one another? How can the joy of experimentation and transdisciplinarity be integrated into teaching practice? And which issues are currently preoccupying our students? These questions form the core of the interdisciplinary Bauhaus.Module. The projects and courses completed within the Bauhaus.Module provide answers and bring together different ways of thinking and working, allowing students and teachers from different disciplines to interact. Students learn and exercise a high degree of creativity, the ability to complete inter- and transdisciplinary work, as well as the skills to confidently interact with a variety of global enterprises. In addition to this, students try their hand at teaching themselves and contribute their own topics, questions and approaches. In turn, teachers have the opportunity to develop new teaching formats and forms of collaboration.
This potential is addressed and expanded upon in the Bauhaus.Module. Projects and courses provide a variety of perspectives and enable problem-solving approaches. In addition, they:
- are run by lecturers from different faculties or subjects, allowing disciplinary limitations to be overcome;
- could be important for students from various disciplines to learn beyond their own studies. In order for those unfamiliar with a subject to be able to access this content, the teaching concept must be adapted accordingly;
- allow visiting lecturers to contribute their own perspectives (incl. in practical fields);
- are conceived and run by students of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar.
Thematically, the Bauhaus.Module projects and courses
- are oriented to the fundamental fields of methods, techniques and theories;
- focus on questions of social responsibility and personal development; and/or
- have concrete applications in project and work modules or real-life laboratories.
The Bauhaus.Module courses are published both on this website and in the bison course catalogue about one month before the semester begins.
With the Bauhaus.Module Funds, the university is able to support academic staff as well as students in their commitment and the development of the corresponding courses. See here for further information.
Bauhaus.Module benefit from the fact that the design of our living space forms the focus of research and art, studies and teaching in all four faculties. The Bauhaus-Universität Weimar combines the disciplines offered at a scientific university with those offered at an art and design university in an entirely unique way. The university has the goal of developing both studies and teaching in our teaching strategy. This includes encouraging interdisciplinary teaching and studies, making teaching and learning formats more flexible, and fostering international expertise.
