ExAcT and the AMM Coordination Office form the ExAcT and Mentoring Department in the Center for Teaching and Learning Services.
ExAcT – Excellent Academic Teaching
ExAcT - Excellent Academic Teaching is the central contact point for university didactics in the field of teaching at RWTH Aachen University and offers interdisciplinary further education with individual consulting. In this context, the teaching qualification of staff members through seminars and workshops as well as other specific formats and offers is a central concern of the department.
ExAcT also supports the transparent networking of all providers of scientific services and continuing education in the field of "Excellent Teaching".
In addition to targeted teaching and learning research, the department also promotes a coordinated exchange of university didactics and the support of all activities that promote the development and application of modern, subject-specific, differentiated teaching methods.
Thus, ExAcT combines qualification and certification as well as research and networking in the field of teaching.
The Aachen Mentoring Model is an individual mentoring system that is free of charge and confidential for RWTH students. The AMM offers counseling on a wide range of topics at seven RWTH faculties, primarily on learning planning, exam questions, time and self-management, and motivation. Due to the close contact with the students, the mentors form a complementary authority to the respective departmental advisors and the lecturers at the faculties and departments.
The mentors are permanently supported by a coordination office, which is located at the CLS. The coordination office works closely with the ExAcT team so that the needs of the students identified by the mentors are communicated directly via the ExAcT colleagues to the teaching staff within the framework of the seminars and teaching consultations as well as within the networking formats.
