This lecture is only apt for students who intend to enrol in the programs "Teaching Diploma" or "Teaching Certificate". It is about learning in childhood and adolescence.
O2 credits2GE. Stern
AbstractThis course looks into scientific theories and also empirical
studies on human learning and relates them to the school.
ObjectiveAnyone wishing to be a successful teacher must first of all understand the learning process. Against this background, theories and findings on the way humans process information and on human behaviour are prepared in such a manner that they can be used for planning and conducting lessons. Students additionally gain an understanding of what is going on in learning and behavioural research so that teachers are put in a position where they can further educate themselves in the field of research into teaching and learning.
ContentThematische Schwerpunkte:
Lernen als Verhaltensänderung und als Informationsverarbeitung; Das menschliche Gedächtnis unter besonderer Berücksichtigung der Verarbeitung symbolischer Information; Lernen als Wissenskonstruktion und Kompetenzerwerb unter besonderer Berücksichtigung des Wissenstransfers; Lernen durch Instruktion und Erklärungen; Die Rolle von Emotion und Motivation beim Lernen; Interindividuelle Unterschiede in der Lernfähigkeit und ihre Ursachen: Intelligenztheorien, Geschlechtsunterschiede beim Lernen

Lernformen:
Theorien und wissenschaftliche Konstrukte werden zusammen mit ausgewählten wissenschaftlichen Untersuchungen in Form einer Vorlesung präsentiert. Die Studierenden vertiefen nach jeder Stunde die Inhalte durch die Bearbeitung von Aufträgen in einem elektronischen Lerntagebuch. Über die Bedeutung des Gelernten für den Schulalltag soll reflektiert werden. Ausgewählte Tagebucheinträge werden zu Beginn jeder Vorlesung thematisiert.

AbstractThe seminar will provide theoretical and applied knowledge in the construction of psychological questionnaires. The students will construct, translate, and adapt instruments from different areas. Afterwards, data on these instruments will be gathered in an online survey. The survey will be analyzed (under the guidance of the seminar leaders) and presented in a scientific report.
ObjectiveThe learning outcomes are:
- Acquiring theoretical and applied knowledge in the construction, translation, and adaption of psychological instruments
- Conducting online surveys and statistical analyses
- Becoming more familiar with relevant statistical procedures (e.g., factor analysis, reliability, correlation, and regression analyses)
- Estimating and evaluating the psychometric properties of instruments
- Scientific description and communication of the results (using APA-style)
ContentDie Lehrveranstaltung soll Studierenden theoretische und praktische Kenntnisse in der Konstruktion von Fragebogen vermitteln. Es werden Instrumente aus verschiedenen Bereichen durch die Studierenden konstruiert, übersetzt und adaptiert. Danach erfolgt eine Online-Erhebung dieser Instrumente, die anschliessend unter Anleitung ausgewertet und in einem wissenschaftlichen Bericht präsentiert wird.
