Course objectives
Educational objective of the course is to gain practical professional knowledge and crystallization of teaching practical skills necessary for practical teaching of natural science. Course content will actually respond to innovative trends in education (changing educational standards, the development of educational technology, etc.). Students will co-decide about the course content. The working method is through workshops, especially laboratory. The subject will be closely tied to educational practice and going to their own teaching profession.
Learning outcomes
After completing the course, students should know and be able to:
- Systematize the lessons learned from theoretical teaching and schooling
- Apply practical knowledge about your profession in transition
- be open to further professional life-long learning and innovation
