Learning and Teaching Methods
During the semester a practical training takes place which consists of the carrying out of tutorials. The students visit one another in at least one tutor session. Afterwards the planned respectively observed teaching and education methods are discussed, applying criteria that had been introduced during the seminar before. Particular emphasis lies on the interaction between tutors and students and between the students.
Description of exams and course work
For the first part, the practical training, the instructor ensures the carrying out of tutorials of at least 15 teaching units of 45 minutes. It is guaranteed that the students have sufficient time to put into practice the theory learned.
The tutors visit one another in at least one session. This gives them the opportunity to experience exercises from another perspective.
The second part of the course work is the documenting in writing how the concepts and methods learned have been implemented. The students describe in about 3-6 pages:
1. how they put into practice the didactical-pedagogical contents learned in the seminar
2. which suggestions they obtained from the reciprocal visits.
There is a possibility to take the exam in the following semester.
