Course preparation

This page provides all of the information you need to prepare and implement a Bauhaus.Modules course. This information is relevant for lecturers, module supervisors and students who are carrying out their own Bauhaus.Modules.

Heterogeneous student knowledge

An interdisciplinary course invites students from other disciplines to participate; these students may have different knowledge foundations and instructors may need to introduce students to any methods and cultures that may be unfamiliar to them. The course instructors should take this into account.

Announcing a course

To make a course visible, it must be added to the »Bauhaus.Modules Courses« category in the bison course catalogue. You can find further instructions on how to add your course to bison HERE. An overview of the courses is also available on the Bauhaus.Module start page. Courses are arranged and sorted randomly. A filter function enables more refined searches.


Recognition of study and examination achievements: Learning Agreement

Students who have already completed their elective modules and wish to attend a Bauhaus.Modules course can replace a compulsory module in their time table, pending approval from their academic advisor. This arrangement is documented in a Learning Agreement, which must be signed by the course instructor (as the person responsible for the module). The course instructor is responsible for informing students of the course and examination requirements beforehand. The Learning Agreement can be found in this document.

Recognition of teaching

If academic staff create an interdisciplinary Bauhaus.Modules, the teaching hours from this course can be credited to their teaching load. This applies for courses taught by up to three academic staff members if they represent different subjects in the joint course. The dean is responsible for determining the crediting of teaching hours. Be sure to consult the dean’s office in good time before the course beings. The legal regulations are outlined in section 5 para. 6 of the »Thüringer Lehrverpflichtungsverordnung (ThürLVVO)«.

Reflection and qualitative evaluation

The Bauhaus.Modules invite students to reflect on teaching concepts and to further develop study concepts. They are intended to be a space for experimentation; an open, interactive and interdisciplinary examination of current issues and an opportunity for new partnerships to emerge within the university and beyond. Your insights and students’ experiences will be recorded in a qualitative evaluation. Individual courses will be considered specifically for this purpose. If you are interested in a qualitative evaluation, contact the coordination team.


For the Bauhaus.Module, a team of students will accompany selected courses and document work processes and outcomes on the Bauhaus.Module website. Please contact the editorial team should you be interested in having your course documented.
