Course List

At the Department of Rehabilitation Sciences we are offering an 'English Course Program' each the winter semester. The courses listed below will be complemented by additional courses that change each academic year. For students with a German Language Level of B2 or higher all courses with German as lan­guage of instruction can be studied as well.

During the summer semester exchange students are welcome to study at the Faculty of Rehabilitation Sciences as well. Please note that the classes will mostly be offered with German as lan­guage of instruction.

We are more than happy to provide further in­for­mation via e-mail.

This course aims to provide exchange students with a basic knowledge on the German educational system and on educational and rehabilitation services for people with special needs. Every week the students visit another institution in the area of rehabilitation, early intervention and/ or special needs education/ inclusion to find out more about the above-mentioned aspects and get in contact with the leader of the institution, who are holding the lectures. The students are allowed to try out some activities and gain some practical experience. We cooperate with schools for children with special needs, sheltered workshops, rehabilitation departments etc.

Students will have the opportunity to carry out their own study proj­ect in the area of education – participation - inclusion. Topic, re­search question and methodology can be developed by the students themselves. Lectures contain in­for­mation about literature search, different databases, re­search standards and citation. At the end of the semester the students will present and discuss their results.

Within this course the students will have the opportunity to develop a critical point of view on the connection the two topics ‘disability’ and ‘culture’. 

Disability as a social phenomenon is strongly interconnected with assumptions on humanity and personhood, health and illness, social roles and normality. Support structures such as the family network or social organisations have a strong influence on the lives of persons with disabilities and their families and form the background for active participation and inclusion. In this course the students will deal with different texts on disability and socio-cultural working on the following topics: 

  • How do socio-cultural circumstances shape the meaning of disability? 
  • Which role do assumptions on personhood, social roles and normality play? 
  • What does this mean for our practical work as rehabilitation workers, social workers, teachers or educationalists?

In this course the students are working in the “study lab”. Students will get to know some technical devices for people with special needs, so called assistive technologies. At the faculty of rehabilitation sciences students have the opportunity to experience the usage of technical aids themselves. Modern technologies, particularly the computer and in­for­mation technology offer a variety of options to compensate the challenges of daily life for people with disabilities (for example wheelchairs, programmes for communicative support etc.) The students elect assistive devices and participate in small exercises.

Anfahrt & Lageplan

Der Cam­pus der Technischen Uni­ver­si­tät Dort­mund liegt in der Nähe des Autobahnkreuzes Dort­mund West, wo die Sauerlandlinie A45 den Ruhrschnellweg B1/A40 kreuzt. Die Abfahrt Dort­mund-Eichlinghofen auf der A45 führt zum Cam­pus Süd, die Abfahrt Dort­mund-Dorstfeld auf der A40 zum Cam­pus-Nord. An beiden Ausfahrten ist die Uni­ver­si­tät ausgeschildert.

Direkt auf dem Cam­pus Nord be­fin­det sich die S-Bahn-Station „Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät“. Von dort fährt die S-Bahn-Linie S1 im 20- oder 30-Minuten-Takt zum Hauptbahnhof Dort­mund und in der Gegenrichtung zum Hauptbahnhof Düsseldorf über Bochum, Essen und Duis­burg. Außerdem ist die Uni­ver­si­tät mit den Buslinien 445, 447 und 462 zu erreichen. Eine Fahrplanauskunft findet sich auf der Homepage des Verkehrsverbundes Rhein-Ruhr, au­ßer­dem bieten die DSW21 einen interaktiven Liniennetzplan an.

Zu den Wahrzeichen der TU Dort­mund gehört die H-Bahn. Linie 1 verkehrt im 10-Minuten-Takt zwi­schen Dort­mund Eichlinghofen und dem Technologiezentrum über Cam­pus Süd und Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S, Linie 2 pendelt im 5-Minuten-Takt zwi­schen Cam­pus Nord und Cam­pus Süd. Diese Stre­cke legt sie in zwei Minuten zu­rück.

Vom Flughafen Dort­mund aus gelangt man mit dem AirportExpress innerhalb von gut 20 Minuten zum Dort­mun­der Hauptbahnhof und von dort mit der S-Bahn zur Uni­ver­si­tät. Ein größeres Angebot an inter­natio­nalen Flugverbindungen bietet der etwa 60 Ki­lo­me­ter entfernte Flughafen Düsseldorf, der direkt mit der S-Bahn vom Bahnhof der Uni­ver­si­tät zu erreichen ist.

Die Ein­rich­tun­gen der Technischen Uni­ver­si­tät Dort­mund verteilen sich auf den größeren Cam­pus Nord und den kleineren Cam­pus Süd. Zu­dem befinden sich einige Bereiche der Hoch­schu­le im angrenzenden Technologiepark. Genauere In­for­ma­ti­onen kön­nen Sie den Lageplänen entnehmen.
