Laptop und Globus

The digital teaching concept "Codeshare Teaching and Learning" enables international students to learn together.

Inspired by the principle of code sharing, in which different airlines jointly offer a scheduled flight, cross-university courses are offered. In the project courses, joint learning and cultural exchange can take place at the same time. In this virtually created global learning environment, students can improve their intercultural communication skills, which are essential in a world that is globalizing continuously.

The three-week summer school will take place online. Courses will be offered mainly in the subject areas of "Sustainable and Ethical Business Practices", “Special Topics in Global Finance”, "Technology and Digitisation in Business" and "Innovative Business Practices".

The courses will be given by lecturers and professors from:

  • Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg, Germany
  • University of Caps Coast, Ghana
  • HS Koblenz RheinAhr Campus, Germany
  • Coastal Carolina University, USA
  • Shenzhen Technical University, China

Students can register for a maximum of three courses, one course per week.

The courses consist of synchronous online sessions. Additionally pre-and after coursework as well as group work can be required to successfully complete a course.

The Value of the Summer School

The virtual program offers the possibility to attend flexible courses that go beyond the regular course program, even in a time when we are no longer so severely limited by the Corona pandemic. It is also possible that smaller local learning groups to meet in person on campus and participate in the virtual course sessions together with other international students.

Learning with international lecturers and professors and working on topics in the field of economy in intercultural learning groups offers the participants of the Summer School the opportunity to gain international experience, familiarize themselves with studying and communicating in English and perhaps make their first international contacts.

Review Codeshare Teaching and Learning Summer School 2021

The first international digital Summer School 2021 was organized by Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg in cooperation with the University of Cape Coast, South-Eastern Finland University of Applied Sciences, Hochschule Koblenz, and Coastal Carolina University and took place from July 26 until August 20, 2021.

Over 180 students from the cooperation universities as well as students from further international partner universities registered for the eight Summer School courses.

An additional social and cultural program with a variety of online events was offered to all course participants to further connect and build an international network.

The Summer School courses mainly, but not exclusively, address students in the fields of Business and Management studies. Eight courses were offered on two main paths: "The Good Side of Finance" and "Digitisation in Business". Additionally, we offered the course "International Career Building".

All courses were fully taught online by professors and lecturers from four of the international project partner universities.

Each course was held in synchronous course sessions on five consecutive days, either in the morning or in the afternoon (local time H-BRS). In addition, students received asynchronous tasks to prepare for the course sessions.

The Summer School 2021 was funded by the Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) as part of the "Codeshare Teaching and Learning Project".

Since the received feedback was highly positive and the participants very much enjoyed the offered courses, the project is going to be successfully continued now.
