Portfolio (BA Modulprüfung)

According to the 'new' study regulations (Studienordnung 2013/2014), a portfolio needs to be handed in to complete the introductory TEFL module (BA Fachdidaktik). This portfolio is comprised of various tasks from the lecture "Introduction to English Language Teaching", the seminar "Planung und Gestaltung von Englischunterricht" and the "SPS".

Here you will find all the information needed to successfully work on your portfolio. The portfolio tasks are supposed to...

  • help you to examine growth and development over time
  • initiate a process of self-evaluation in order to show your strenghts and weaknesses (as a result of this self-evaluation you are supposed to develop a plan for your personal development as a future teacher)
  • show your ability to connect theory and practice
  • support your ability to reflect critically on the theory and practice of teaching foreign languages.

Where and when to register?

Before handing in the final version of your portfolio, you must have successfully completed the lecture, PuG and the SPS. You may register while your are still in your SPS. Registration is only possible via PULS. Please keep in mind that registration on PULS closes a certain time before due date. You may choose your examiner as long as he/she has enough capacities to correct your portfolio. The available options can be seen on PULS. Please note: you have to meet the deadline for handing in portfolios. If you registered for the 'Portfolio Modulprüfung' during summer term, you also have to hand in the portfolio within this semester; the same applies for winter term. Portfolios that are registered or handed in later than the given deadlines will not be accepted.

Where and when to hand in?

winter semester: until February 15th

summer semester: until July 30th

Please upload a digitial version on Moodle: TEFL: Portfolio Modulprüfung (Bachelor Fachdidaktik Englisch) AND hand in a printed version at the secretary's office (Mrs. Heinze). Keep in mind: Late submissions will not be accepted. It is not enough to upload the Portfolio by the end of the deadline, but to hand in the printed version on that day. If the closing date is on a weekend or on a holiday, you may hand in your portfolio the following workday.
