Psychological Key Competencies as part of the study of Human Movement Science
In order to ensure a bridge between specialist studies and professional practice, the interdisciplinary module "Key Competencies" is offered at the faculty. This seminar is not studied at the department of Human Movement Science, but is offered by the faculty across disciplines. You can obtain guidance on this from the person responsible for the module in this area. The students deal with the range of general, interdisciplinary skills and competencies with regard to the professional goals of the degree program and can identify areas in which they have individual development needs. You proactively select areas in which there is a need for personal support and can justify this choice - with regard to both the goals of the degree program and the professional fields in which degree graduates typically work as specialists or managers - and provide evidence if necessary.
In these development areas, students take advantage of specific support programs for personal development or the promotion of methodological and interpersonal key competencies that are related to the typical professional practice of the majority of graduates in the field. The students acquire knowledge (“Know what”) about methodological, socio-communicative and / or self-regulatory key competencies as well as about their functions for application contexts in work and society. There they show improved skills, practiced strategies and models to be put into practice in professional and societal contexts of action ("know how") and act deliberately selectively and authentically, taking into account the social context ("know why"). These include Self-management skills (e.g. time, stress, emotion management, learning skills, career and life planning), cooperation (e.g. teamwork, conflict management, intercultural skills), mediation (e.g. presentation, group management), advice (e.g. discussion, problem solving, moderation), Management (e.g. project management, negotiation, ethical competence) and the use of digital information technologies.
