In this regard, the following aspects of their educational qualifications must in particular be taken into account: Degree of educational proficiency. Participation in first-cycle education. Breadth and versatility in first-cycle education. Supervisory tasks. Educational development work. Popular scientific publications. 6.4 Special proficiency For employment as a senior university lecturer, the applicant has to have demonstrated special educational proficiency or special proficiency in developing and leading operations and personnel at the university, or have demonstrated a special ability to work in cooperation with the local community, or have some other special professional proficiency which is of particular significance with regard to the subject field and tasks of the employment. The following is applicable with regard to the respective alternatives: For special educational proficiency, the applicant has to have implemented, over a number of years (normally at least eight), documented educational initiatives which have been expressed in several ways and which go considerably beyond the demands that can be made of an experienced teacher. Quality must be taken into account in the first instance during assessment of special educational proficiency, but scope is also of significance. Special proficiency may refer to: Particularly well implemented planning, implementation, evaluation and development of teaching at various levels. Teaching on all the various aspects of the subject, experience of different forms of teaching and an ability to adapt teaching to different target groups and group sizes may all form part of special educational proficiency. Particularly well implemented supervision/mentoring at various levels. Production of study materials. If the applicant has produced study material which is used at other higher education institutions as well, this is a particular advantage. Particularly well implemented educational development work. Publication of reports or articles within the scope of educational development work, and expert assignments relating to surveys linked to education issues are an advantage. Particularly extensive training on teaching and learning in higher education. For special proficiency in developing and leading activities and personnel, the applicant has to have implemented, over a number of years (normally at least eight), documented initiatives relating to extensive leadership assignments. These assignments have to have been implemented in a manner which considerably exceeds the demands which can normally be made of the incumbent of an equivalent leadership position. Examples of assignments which may be included in the assessment are head of department, departmental manager and programme and subject manager. Development work in the fields of quality, equal opportunities, diversity, the environment, internationalisation, etc. may also be taken into account, along with an ability to initiate and build up research environments. Participation in groups, boards and councils at local, national and international level should also be included in the assessment. For special proficiency in interacting with the local community, the applicant has to have implemented, over a number of years (normally at least eight), documented initiatives relating to qualified development work in respect of interaction resulting in training and research results

25 25 (25) becoming accessible to new groups and in the expertise of the higher education institution becoming accessible to society in general. The applicant must be able to demonstrate documented initiatives which considerably exceed the demands which can normally be made of a teacher with equivalent tasks. Participation in projects run in cooperation between a higher education institution/university and a company or public administration is significant in the assessment, as are any actions intended to create networks which encourage the exchange of knowledge exchange between the higher education institution and other stakeholders in the community. Verbal or written dissemination of the knowledge and activities of the higher education institution, participation in the public debate and marketing of the activities of the higher education institution should be taken into account. Participation in international cooperation projects, international research environments and popular scientific lectures is also an advantage. These guidelines will come into force on 26 March 2012.
