Course objectives
The seminar is focused on the students of teaching, it examines the knowledge and ability to apply basic didactic knowledge. In addition to the basic knowledge of preparing, implementing, and evaluating teaching, core competencies (reading, listening, speaking, writing) are contextualized. The seminar is a didactic extension because it is based on linguistic subjects taught in the Master's cycle and the knowledge acquired in these subjects transforms into the creation of a curriculum of German subjects, the basics of which are taught at secondary schools and in bachelor program. This is word formation, syntax, stylistics and the foundations of German history. Part of this is the creation of a small open-moodle course on the chosen subject, in which it testifies to the technical knowledge gained in previous subjects, which incorporates the teaching of modern technologies.
