The successful completion of module wir170 is a mandatory requirement for the attendance of module prx105 (practical training in vocational schools). Students have to take part in the lectures actively to fulfil the requirements of module wir170. This includes usually the regular participation in the sessions, the preparation and reworking of the content of each session (e.g. reading suggested literature, working on learning tasks), and giving presentations in different forms depending on the type of course. The criteria of an active participation are negotiated and defined at the beginning of the course.
