The course is offered to students of any study field.
The purpose of this course is to develop and enhance professional competences acquired during Teaching practice 1 and to continuously take responsibility of one’s own teaching and interaction with pupils. This practice puts emphasis on the aspect of individual study field. 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. The practice takes in total 60 hours consisting of 40 hours of being actually in school and 20 hours of own preparation for teaching or help to the mentor (e.g. correction of tests, preparation of teaching aids, etc.).
After completing the course the student will: • evaluate his/her own development in teacher’s role • make his/her own process of planning, realisation and reflection of his/her teaching more effective • create alterations used in teaching based on reflection of his/her own teaching, • acquire basic skills relating to all aspects of teacher’s work (both of teaching and non-teaching character), • reflect on climate of a specific school/class and their influence on his/her own work.
