Teaching and Learning

MBE BSc – Teaching and Learning Concept

The academic calendar describes the course of a study showing specific dates, including information on the start and finish of studies, exam periods, course enrollment deadlines, and final papers/exams. The Academic Calendar is approved at any beginning of the year. The academic year lasts 15 weeks of lectures and seminars and is divided into fall and spring semesters and three exam periods (January, June, and September) for each academic year.

 

Teaching – is provided through interactive lectures, seminars and individual lessons. Academic and administrative staff are responsible for providing assistance, services and guidance on academic and student affairs. In line with pedagogical approaches, some units may require more direct instruction. In many subjects, candidates must read the compulsory materials. Also, assignments usually required should contain up to 15 -20 pages of research papers. Seminar sessions are an opportunity for candidates to discuss the topics of the week and get additional insights on specific topics. Therefore, participation in lectures and seminars is mandatory. Most of the master’s candidates are employed. Access to practical and professional topics is easier and more applicable, then the preparation and presentation of seminars, research and projects is of greater volume and quality. The Moodle electronic platform makes professor-candidate communication much easier. On this platform, professors can make all relevant materials available to candidates for specific subjects, organize online quizzes, communicate test results, send out candidate notices and answer candidate questions

 

Evaluation – of student grades is done throughout the semester and is based on teamwork, individual work, presentations and written exams. The SMIS platform, created by UBT, assists candidates to receive the final exam results in their respective UBT-created emails to respect the full privacy of the candidates.

All courses are outlined, with each syllabus outlining key requirements, assessment methods, and mandatory literature. In the final year of studies, candidates must complete their diploma thesis. Usually, the written exam has a weight of 50-60%, while other activities also meet 40-50% of the final grade while candidate advisory assistance is provided as needed.
