The practice sessions link up with the specific didactics of the subject(s) the student takes. They are supervised by the specific didactics professor and his/her assistants. Students trained in two subjects will split the amount of time spent on the two options. In this course description only the main principles are outlined. More information can be found in the Course Guide for the Practice Sessions of the specific didactics.
Practice sessions are lessons in which students teach fellow students or pupils of secondary education. These lessons need to be prepared and will be discussed afterwards. Students attend their fellow students’ lessons and participate actively. Attendance and participation during all practice sessions are absolutely essential, for practising as well as for experiencing. The students can explore the interaction with an audience, the organisation of classes and observe the impact of all kinds of techniques on themselves. The framework is provided by the general and the specific didactics courses.
