ADOK Automation Technology and German as Online Course

The lack of qualified engineers with German language skills in engineering fields initiated universities and companies from four different European Union countries (Tampere UAS, Reutlingen University, Tallinn UAS, VŠB TU Ostrava,) to produce teaching material for an unique interdisciplinary online-course which combines the fields of Automation Technology and German as a foreign language: ADOK (Automatisierung und Deutsch im Online-Kurs/Automation Technology and German as an Online-Course). ADOK will be available free of charge by the end of 2012 on the website thanks to the financial support of the EU within the framework of the Lifelong Learning Project (LLP). The course material is a combination of problem-based instruction in the field of Control Engineering and active learning of the German language. Situations from daily professional life are simulated and this will have received positive effect on the motivation of the students. Computer modified, animated and interactive learning material for the combined teaching of Control Technology and German language will be produced on the basis of authentic texts and diagrams. These tasks will be embedded in Moodle, a widely-used online learning platform, so they can be used by the students to produce, for example, glossaries together.
