Workload of student for successfully completing the course. Each ECTS credit represents 30 working hours. These are the combined effort of face-to-face time, post-processing the subject of the lecture, exercises and preparation for the exam.

The total workload is distributed on the semester (01.04.-30.09. during the summer term, 01.10.-31.03. during the winter term).
30 class hours (= 22.5 clock hours) over a 15-week period.
The total student study time is 90 hours (equivalent to 3 ECTS credits).
There are therefore 67.5 hours available for class preparation and follow-up work and exam preparation.

Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will be able to describe, explain and compare the special challenges involved in planning, organizing and carrying out technical workshops. They will be able to use what they have learned to develop and carry out courses themselves, e. g. for the development of computer games or for the construction and programming of robots.

Module content:
* Create a concept for a course
* Develop and create course materials in German
* Plan, organize and conduct a course for a selected target group
* Review and document the experiences made
In addition to the topics mentioned above, this course will also focus on specialized and technical questions pertaining to workshops.
In addition to this course, we recommend students take part in the elective "Planung und Durchführung technischer Workshops" ("Planning and Running Technical Workshops"). It focuses in the didactic aspects in the planning, implementation and evaluation of workshops. The order in which the two courses are taken is arbitrary (the courses have different thematic focuses, but they both accompany a complete workshop life cycle).

[updated 26.02.2018]
Recommended or required reading:
Literature and external support will be provided for the implementation and moderation of workshops.
