Orientation and goals

This programme focuses primarily on the selection of content, methodical presentation, consideration of didactical meaningfulness, diagnostic skills relating to early education, and teaching and learning based on learning theory. It covers not only basic teaching skills, but also examples taken from the content of the various subject areas, as well as interdisciplinary problems.
