Aims, contents and method of the course

The seminar on philosophy education aims at instructing teacher training students to develop problem-based forms of teaching philosophy by developing their assessment, planning and teaching skills. Participants reconsider the theoretical foundations and practical teaching components of philosophy education by using a series of lessons (e.g., happiness, justice, etc.) as a model. In addition, they design two teaching units with a complete series of lessons about a core issue of philosophy.

Objectives:
• Analysing and reflecting on the aims of philosophy teaching (approaches in philosophy education, concept of philosophy education, philosophical skills)
• Reconsidering the Austrian curriculum of philosophy teaching (units, series of lessons about a subject area)
• Designing and reflecting on problem-based teaching of philosophy in the classroom
• Analysing and developing skill-based forms of assessment

Contents
• Philosophy and philosophy education (basic understanding and fundamental positions of philosophy, basic philosophical questions and problems)
• Approaches in philosophy education (Ekkehard Martens, Wulff D. Rehfus, Johannes Rohbeck)
• Philosophical skills and the concept of philosophy education (competency requirements and the philosophy education process)
• Analysis of the syllabus and guidelines for the new leaving exams (teaching and testing philosophical attainment and skills)
• Analysis of philosophy readers and handouts (subject-related educational goals of course books)
• Working and teaching methods in the philosophy classroom context (philosophical methods of text interpretation, Socratic dialogue, concept analysis, thought experiments, philosophical arguing, essay writing)
• Analysis of a series of lessons (teaching sequences and core questions)
• Planning a series of lessons (educational situation, skill-based teaching goals, selection of teaching content, media, teaching approach)
• Methods of students learning performance [assessment??] (oral examination, written paper, alternatives)
• Analysis and design of skill-based assignments on the oral exam (requirements and topical coherence)

Methods
The seminar combines such methods as theoretical contributions by instructors, group and partner work by students, presentations, and plenary discussions. Compulsory reading and short assignments are also part of the students’ workload.

Assessment and permitted materials

- Regular attendance and active participation in the seminar
- Assignments for single meetings (reading, analysis of teaching materials and syllabus)
- Planning of two units within a problem-based series of lessons on a core issue of philosophy, fulfilling the requirements of the leaving exams

Minimum requirements and assessment criteria

- Regular attendance (80 % attendance)
- Active participation in the seminar (20-30 %)
