Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Digital Lecture in Moodle (no physical lectures at the institute)

Fundamental introduction in theory and practice to specialized communication and terminology as well as to characteristics of language for special purposes and specialized communication. You are familiar with specialized text types and you are able to describe the macro- and micro-structure of specialized texts. You are familiar with the principles of terminology and methods of terminology work as well as with different views of terminology science and research on specialized communication.

Assessment and permitted materials

Written exam (60 points) and bonus points (6 points)

Bonus points: During the semester additional exercises to the contents of this lecture will be provided on Moodle, which will be announced and described in the respective digital lectures. Completing these exercises will grant you bonus points that count towards the final written exam.

Can I pass the lecture solely based on bonus points?
No, bonus points alone are insufficient to obtain a positive final evaluation of the lecture. However, a negative result on the written exam that was almost a pass might be turned positive due to bonus points.

Do I require bonus points to obtain the total number of points on the written exam?
No, the total number of points on the final written exam can be obtained without bonus points. There will be no disadvantage for you if you do not have any bonus points. However, if you do obtain bonus points, your grade can improve by up to maximum one grade (e.g. if you obtain a good 3, the bonus points might boost your grade to a 2).

How can I keep track of my bonus points?
Your bonus points will be documented on the Moodle page of the lecture.

How long are the obtained bonus points valid?
The bonus points are at maximum valid until the end of the semester following the semester of the lecture (e.g. lecture WS 2020 - bonus points are valid until the end of SS2021).
