AbstractThe lecture focuses on the basics of agile product development, in which development processes are structured in the form of several short sprints. The lecture deepens the relevant technical and methodological knowledge for the implementation of the characteristic core activities: Design, Build, Test.
ObjectiveStudents understand the concept of agile product development and know the most important elements for planning and executing a sprint. They know individual methods for finding and selecting solutions and can apply basic methods for risk and cost analysis. Students are also able to calculate drives and mechanisms for different operating conditions.
Content- Agile product development
- Creativity and selection methods
- Mechanical mechanisms
- Electric motors
- Design principles
- Risk and cost analysis
- Prototyping and testing
- Market and innovation
Lecture notesLecture slides are distributed via Ilias.
Prerequisites / NoticeFor Bachelor studies in Mechanical and Process Engineering the lecture "Maschinenelemente" (HS) is examined together with "Innovationsprozess" (FS).
151-1072-00LMentored Work in Didactics of Mechanical and Process Engineering Restricted registration - show details 2 credits4AQ. Lohmeyer
AbstractThe Mentored Work aims at teaching students to combine theoretical topics from their didactic education with practical aspects and to articulate the results in written form. The choice of the topic and the definition of the content is made in agreement between the students and the lecturer.
ObjectiveThe topic of the thesis should be chosen in such a way that at least one of the following teaching objectives can be achieved:
- Students are able to reflect on their own or others teaching in terms of accepted criteria of learning effective teaching.
- Students learn to plan and conduct lessons based on a topic from their subject area.
- Students learn to deal with technical or didactic topics in depth from a pedagogical point of view.
ContentThe content of the work will be discussed individually in a preliminary meeting. In addition to the thematic frame, the methodical and didactical focus of the work is defined.
Prerequisites / NoticePrerequisite is the successful completion of Subject Didactics I and Subject Didactics II.
151-1079-00LTeaching Internship Including Examination Lessons Mechanical and Process Engineering Restricted registration - show details
The teaching internship can just be visited if all other courses of TC have been completed.
Repetition of the teaching internship is not possible, also if the examination lessons have to be repeated.

AbstractThe teaching internship offers students the opportunity to put the knowledge gained during their didactic education into practice at a Fachhochschule or a Berufsfachschule. The internship comprises a total of 30 lessons, of which 10 lessons are observed and 20 lessons are taught.
ObjectiveStudents can evaluate the teaching of others with regard to general didactic aspects and communicate their observations. They can also fully prepare and conduct their own lessons. Students are able to guide learners through their lessons and actively involve them in the lessons.
ContentThe teaching internship is led by an internship teacher who is assigned to the student by the lecturer of the subject didactics. In regard to the observations, the internship teacher explains his or her professional and didactic considerations, on the basis of which he or she has planned the lessons, and exchanges experiences and observations with the student during the internship. The internship teacher must attend all lessons given by the student and discuss them with the student before and after the lessons. Two lessons at the end of the internship are held as examination lessons, which are jointly assessed by the subject didactics teacher and a subject representative.
Prerequisites / NoticePrerequisite is the successful completion of Subject Didactics I, Subject Didactics II and the Mentored Work.
227-0858-00LSubject Didactics II for D-MAVT and D-ITET Restricted registration - show details 4 credits3GQ. Lohmeyer, A. Colotti
AbstractSubject Didactics II addresses the opportunities provided by activating teaching elements and discusses the didactically meaningful use of new digital technologies. Both main topics are deepened in application examples and teaching exercises.
ObjectiveStudents are familiar with various ways of activating learners in class. They can ask questions in a way that encourages learners to think and participate. Students also understand how to use animation and simulation to help build conceptual understanding.
Content- Didactics and digitalisation
- Animation and simulation
- Think-Pair-Share
- Jigsaw method
- Questioning technique
- Practical training
Lecture notesThe lecture slides are provided via Moodle.
Prerequisites / NoticePrerequisite is the successful completion of Subject Didactics I.
