Facilitating continuous learning: “Leistungselemente” in practice

Many lecturers seek ways to promote continuous learning for their students. In the past it was possible to make homework in the form of exercises and other assessments mandatory and provide marks that count towards the final grade for their submission. Lecturers now need to find different ways to motivate students to engage in continuous assessment tasks. The new ETH policy on “Leistungselemente” provides a framework that can guide lecturers in this task. This Refresh Teaching event provides an opportunity to hear from several lecturers who have successfully implemented continuous learning elements inspired by the policy and provides an opportunity to exchange ideas.


  • Prof. Jörg Leuthold – Head of Electromagnetic Fields Laboratory,
