AbstractUnterrichtssequenzen zu vorgegebenen physikalischen Themen werden unter Berücksichtigung der Interessensforschung und der historischen Entwicklung in einem blended Learning Ansatz erarbeitet.
ObjectiveDie Studierenden kennen verschiedene Möglichkeiten der Unterrichtsgestaltung durch unterschiedliche Lernformen und können diese anwenden. Sie beziehen Resultate der Interessensforschung, das Vorwissen sowie das Wissen um häufige Fehlvorstellungen in ihre Unterrichtsentwicklung mit ein und können den Lernerfolg mit Hilfe verschiedener Beurteilungsinstrumente evaluieren.
ContentZu vorgegebenen Themen der Physik werden Lerngelegenheiten für die Gymnasialstufe entwickelt. Dabei soll der Einführung ins Thema, der Stoffauswahl, der Lernform sowie der Ergebnissicherung besondere Aufmerksamkeit geschenkt werden. Diese Lerngelegenheiten werden in einem blended Learning Ansatz mit Referee- und Vorstellungssequenzen ausgearbeitet. Am Ende des Semesters liegen detailliert ausgearbeitete und evaluierte Unterrichtseinheiten zu einem Themenbereich der Mittelschulphysik vor.
Lecture notesWird durch die Teilnehmer im Kurs erarbeitet.

Mentored Work Subject Didactics in Physics for TC^and Teaching Diploma Physics.

AbstractIn their mentored work on subject didactics, students put into practice the contents of the subject-didactics lectures and go into these in greater depth. Under supervision, they compile tuition materials that are conducive to learning and/or analyse and reflect on certain topics from a subject-based and pedagogical angle.
ObjectiveThe objective is for the students:
- to be able to familiarise themselves with a tuition topic by consulting different sources, acquiring materials and reflecting on the relevance of the topic and the access they have selected to this topic from a specialist, subject-didactics and pedagogical angle and potentially from a social angle too.
- to show that they can independently compile a tuition sequence that is conducive to learning and develop this to the point where it is ready for use.
ContentThematic Focus
The topics of the mentored work are mostly chosen from the high school curriculum.

Methods
With the help of the mentor the students individually work on a topic and write a thesis about it.

Mentored Work Specialised Courses in the Respective Subject with an Educational Focus in Physics for TC and Teaching Diploma.
2 credits4AG. Schiltz, A. Vaterlaus, C. Wagner
AbstractIn the mentored work on their subject specialisation, students link high-school and university aspects of the subject, thus strengthening their teaching competence with regard to curriculum decisions and the future development of the tuition. They compile texts under supervision that are directly comprehensible to the targeted readers - generally specialist-subject teachers at high-school level.
ObjectivePractice in the explanation of complex topics in physics as the core competence of the teaching profession

Improvement of the physics education by providing attractive recent topics with regard to future curricular decisions and the public view of physics

Internship Physics Didactics for Teaching Diploma with Physics as First Subject.

Obligatorisch für Studierende, die ab FS 2014 in das Lehrdiplom eintreten.



Studierende, die vor dem FS 2014 in das Lehrdiplom eingetreten sind, müssen entweder die mentorierte Arbeit oder das Fachdidaktikpraktikum Physik als obligatorische Lehrveranstaltung absolvieren. Selbstverständlich können auch beide Lehrveranstaltungen absolviert werden.

AbstractDuring the Internship Physics Didactics students teach 8 lessons in the classes of an internship teaching person. Students develop, test and analyze teaching arrangement under the guidance of a mentor (one of the lecturers).
ObjectiveBasic knowledge for the design of teaching arrangements is the topic of the Physics Didactics I and II courses. In the subsequent Internship Physics Didactics students combine the theoretical knowledge acquired in the didactics courses with practical aspects of teaching. During the internship students learn to transform their teaching goals into a real live class room setting considering subject specific, didactical and pedagogical aspects.
ContentDas Fachdidaktikpraktikum bietet den Studierenden eine Möglichkeit, Lernumgebungen wirksam zu gestalten und ihr methodisches Repertoire gezielt zu erweitern. In Absprache mit der Praktikumslehrperson und dem Mentor werden die Aufträge für die Gestaltung der Arrangements formuliert. Die schriftlichen Ausarbeitungen und die Reflexionen über die Lektionen sind Bestandteil des Portfolios, welches die Studierenden für diese Veranstaltung anlegen. Zu den Lektionen führt die Praktikumslehrperson Vor- und Nachbesprechungen durch.
Lecture notesWird vom Mentor bestimmt.
Prerequisites / NoticeDas Fachdidaktikpraktikum kann erst nach dem Besuch der FD1 und frühestens mit der FD2 durchgeführt werden (eine gleichzeitige Belegung von Fachdidaktik 2 und Fachdidaktikpraktikum ist möglich).
