Learning concept of the Distance Learning Programme

HIGH PRACTICAL RELEVANCE | INNOVATIVE DISTANCE LEARNING | INDIVIDUAL AND COMPETENT STUDENT SUPPORT | NO PHYSICAL PRESENCE

The learning concept of MSc Integrative Therapy is characterised by a high level of practice-relevant content as well as innovative teaching and learning methods. Its design as a pure distance learning course means that it is optimally focused on the needs of the target group.

The combination of guided self-study, individual student support and e-learning units offers students the possibility of learning independent of time and place, oriented to their own professional requirements and needs.

The use of modern e-learning modules guarantees students interactive learning as well as clear presentation and discussion of abstract content. Interactive online-seminars and discussions in virtual space promote the integration of theoretical principles and methods into professional practice. The use of a Virtual Tutorial in the form of an online learning platform enables flexible and network-like knowledge transfer, which can be optimally varied and adapted according to individual learning needs and progress.

The provision of recordings as well as all learning material in electronic form facilitates knowledge management and asynchronous learning for students in a learning group with different professional conditions and freedom. In addition, this means simpler and time- and location-independent documentation and repetition of teaching content.
