Short description

The participants gain in-depth basic knowledge of compiler construction. They are acquainted with the structure of compilers and the phases of translation and are able to apply this knowledge in creating their own languages and compilers. The students are able to understand and classify current trends and basic research papers from the subject area of compiler construction. The methods covered in this project are applied in practice constructing a (small) compiler.

The aims of the project include: Introduction of various, partly digital, teaching and learning forms in lectures, practical training and self-study (teaching videos and/or screencasts, flipped classroom), introduction of e-assessments, joint development and exchange of teaching materials as OER, strengthening internationalisation.

Partner university

Turkish-German University, Istanbul, Turkey

Short description

The Master’s module is an English-taught, due to the Covid-19 pandemic initially only virtually designed teaching format, which enables students to gain a cross-border learning experience between the partner universities Bielefeld UAS and the Turkish-German University Istanbul. Teaching staff from both countries will engage in teaching this module by using Zoom and LTI between Moodle and ILIAS. In addition, practical orientation is strengthened by integrating a business simulation game (TOPSIM as cloud solution) and a company representative. Thus, the project can contribute to the following aims:

  • Strategic interlinking of internationalisation and digitalisation;
  • Enabling the experience of multicultural and cross-border settings of collaboration;
  • Enhancing future skills (digital skills and intercultural skills, in particular)
