1 Professional Development for Academics

„Fremdsprachenkompetenz stellt eine äußerst wichtige Qualifikation in der modernen, globalisierten Arbeitswelt dar. Die EU betrachtet Fremdsprachenkenntnisse als Grundkompetenz zur Erhöhung der Ausbildungs- und Beschäftigungschancen. Das Zentrum für Sprachen, Bildung und Kultur möchte gezielt fremdsprachliche Kompetenzen vermitteln, die das professionelle Handeln in einem multilingualen, international ausgerichteten Kontext ermöglichen bzw. erleichtern.“

English has become the lingua franca of academic exchange. English as a Medium of Instruction has therefore turned into an important initiative for creating a truly international university, having the aim to offer more courses taught in English. The Centre for Languages, Education and Culture (ZBSK) encourages this development and offers support and training when it comes to improving academic teaching skills in English.
