In this course we will shed light on those questions which decisively influence a successful course of action in one's studies and profession and the success and contentment in private life.
These are mostly less technical abilities but rather characteristics: purposefullness, self confidence, ability to concentrate and relax, decision-making ability, clear communication, self-perception, motivation, stamina.
The purpose of this course is to trigger and improve a purposeful and self-motivated personal development.
Furthermore, it is explained how and why great parts of the so-called soft skills arise almost independently when developing the above-mentioned abilities.
This course is a seminar in the original sense: mainly a discussion in which each participant explores something on his/her own (in this case his/her own behavior). However, the format differs completely to what the title "Seminar" ususally suggests in Computer Science: there are no topics assigned, no presentations, no papers. It is about ... (Es geht um Bildung, nicht um Ausbildung)
The number of participants is limited; prior registration is necessary. The course requires study experience and therefor cannot be attended by first semesters.
I expect an open and commited particpation of all particpants. The course demands only a moderate expenditure of time, but a considerable input of will power.
