DescriptionThe course is a four months exchange programme directed towards students studying to become teachers in primary and lower secondary schools. The exchange programme is a mixture of lectures, group work, student presentations, and project oriented learning.
The programme is based on the fundamental belief that democracy is the cornerstone of the European community currently and in the future. The aim is therefore to understand the concept of democracy and why and how does one raise pupils in schools to become democratic citizens?
Through the compulsory courses: Theory of Education, General Didactics and Democracy and School Practice students will be guided by experienced teachers and will receive training in planning, implementing and evaluating teaching for different age groups in the chosen subjects.
Career OpportunitiesThe course gives the student the opportunity to design their own study programme and specialise in a field of their own choice. By choosing from the many different options of specialisation within the framework of the programme, students can tailor-fit their education.
There are many opportunities in the field of teaching, examples being: Teaching younger or older pupils, becoming an all-round-teacher or a specialist, specialising in teaching sciences, international dimensions and specialising in reading and literary pedagogy.
