AbstractDidactics colloquium
Objective
401-9983-00LMentored Work Subject Didactics Mathematics A Restricted registration - show details
Mentored Work Subject Didactics in Mathematics for TC, Teaching Diploma and Teaching Diploma Mathematics as Minor Subject.
2 credits4AM. Akveld, K. Barro, L. Halbeisen, M. Huber, N. Hungerbühler, A. F. Müller
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.
ContentThematische Schwerpunkte
Die Gegenstände der mentorierten Arbeit in Fachdidaktik stammen in der Regel aus dem gymnasialen Unterricht.

Lernformen
Alle Studierenden erhalten ein individuelles Thema und erstellen dazu eine eigenständige Arbeit. Sie werden dabei von ihrer Betreuungsperson begleitet. Gegebenenfalls stellen sie ihre Arbeit oder Aspekte daraus in einem Kurzvortrag vor. Die mentorierte Arbeit ist Teil des Portfolios der Studierenden.
Lecture notesEine kurze Anleitung zur mentorierten Arbeit in Fachdidaktik wird zur Verfügung gestellt.
LiteratureDie Literatur ist themenspezifisch. Die Studierenden beschaffen sie sich in der Regel selber (siehe Lernziele). In besonderen Fällen wird sie vom Betreuer zur Verfügung gestellt.
Prerequisites / NoticeDie Arbeit sollte vor Beginn des Praktikums abgeschlossen werden.

Mentored Work Specialised Courses in the Respective Subject with an Educational Focus in Mathematics for TC and Teaching Diploma.
2 credits4AM. Akveld, K. Barro, L. Halbeisen, M. Huber, N. Hungerbühler, A. F. Müller
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.
ObjectiveThe aim is for the students
- to familiarise themselves with a new topic by obtaining material and studying the sources, so that they can selectively extend their specialist competence in this way.
- to independently develop a text on the topic, with special focus on its mathematical comprehensibility in respect of the level of knowledge of the targeted readership.
- To try out different options for specialist further training in their profession.
