Personnel development has been strategically anchored in the philosophy of the Ruhr-Universität for years. Systematic methods of personnel selection and all-embracing provision of consultation and continuing education in university teaching questions are an important building block of good teaching at the RUB.
Good teaching – supported by ifb and ZAT
The "On-the-job Training and Counselling Office" (ifb) enables
demand-oriented expansion of teaching competence for various target
groups. Its innovative formats encompass individualised, subject-specific
and cross-subject consulting and continuing education offers.
Teachers at the RUB also include many tutors, teaching assistants and practice group leaders. The Education Centre for Tutors (Zentrale Ausbildung für Tutorinnen und Tutoren) at the RUB (ZAT) provides cross-subject qualifications in the form of training, coaching and sitting in on lectures.
