Course objectives
The purpose of this course is to extend professional competences, to get familiar with roles a teacher encounters during his/her work, and to be aware of one’s own professional needs. This practice puts an emphasis on pedagogical-psychological aspect of the practice. Within this course, the student has a possibility to link theoretical knowledge gained in courses of Pedagogy, Psychology and his/her own study field with practical experience and to enhance reflective and self-reflective skills needed for teacher’s profession. The practice is continuous and is to be realized in 10 weeks during the semester within the MAJOR study plan.
