The students will be introduced to the basics of didactics of biology. In the beginning the focus will lie on the standards of education and school-curriculums. Afterwards scientific methods, different methods of education, media, social forms and the culture of problem solving in biological classes will be reflected and realized by concrete examples out of everydays practice (micro-teaching). During the second half of the module the students will be able to conceive and reflect own concepts of teaching. Furthermore the possibilities of studying in out-of-school-facilities will be fathomed, excursions planned, realized and reflected.
