Aims, contents and method of the course

Using the didactic triangle as a starting point, we will look at different components of teaching in this seminar. By discussing texts that address underlying questions of education and upbringing (Kant, Simmel, Adorno, Arendt Gruschka), we will examine the relationship between teachers and students, learning how to select appropriate teaching material. Furthermore, we will discuss issues related to the principle of prohibition of overpowering and indoctrination (“Überwältigungs- oder Indoktrinationsverbot“). As part of the seminar, we will discuss texts that discuss what comprises good teaching, but also look at key aspects of planning and teaching classes. Additionally, students will be required to plan series of lessons and put examples of their lessons into practice.
Throughout the seminar, we will look at learning from different perspectives. For this purpose, we will briefly address general methods for text analysis, as well as means for in-depth analyses. Moreover, we will discuss Kant’s ideas on reason and power of judgement. Using current teaching projects, we will discuss the questions methodological and didactic organization of a classroom.
The seminar aims at providing students with several opportunities to receive feedback on their teaching projects.
Reading texts and writing short papers are mandatory. At the end of the seminar students will submit a written assignment on a theoretical concept discussed in the seminar.

The seminar will be held as an online course.

Aims, contents and method of the course

Auf welche Weise unterrichtet man idealerweise Philosophie? Ist das 'Philosophische' am eigenen Unterricht vornehmlich der Inhalt oder eher die Art und Weise wie man unterrichtet? Existieren genuin philosophische Unterrichtsmethoden? Das Seminar versteht sich als Reflexion Ihrer parallel stattfindenden Schulpraktika. Wir fahren zweigleisig: Zum einen diskutieren wir im weitesten Sinne ‚philosophische‘ Texte über das Unterrichten, die ungewohnte Perspektiven auf das Unterrichten werfen sollen, zum anderen präsentieren Sie Ihre eigenen Unterrichtsentwürfe. Behandelt werden u.a. folgende Fragen: Wie stellt man auf zielführende Weise Fragen und Aufgaben? Welches Material ist geeignet? Welche methodischen Schritte sollte man im Unterricht verfolgen? Welche Rolle spielt ‚Loben‘? Wie geht man mit Unvorhergesehenem um? Kann man Lernen ‚steuern‘?

Assessment and permitted materials

- Einmalige Präsentation einer Unterrichtsstunde,
- 2 Kommentare zu Texten, die im Seminar diskutiert werden,
- 1 Kommentar zu dem besten Unterricht, den man selbst im Lauf der Schulzeit/ der Universität erfahren hat,
1 Kommentar zur aktuellen Unterrichtssituation bzw. zu einem besten gloriosen Scheitern beim Unterrichten

Aims, contents and method of the course

Content:
The seminar aims at instructing teacher training students to reconsider basic issues of teaching psychology and philosophy, to get acquainted with working and teaching methods of psychology and philosophy classes and to be familiar with planning processes of psychology and philosophy lessons.

Objectives:
In the seminar, students shall be familiarised with concepts of psychology and philosophy instruction. The assumptions of “good” psychology and philosophy classes are discussed, and planning requirements (limits of planning) are elucidated. In addition, the pedagogical principle of problem-orientation in psychology and philosophy shall be dealt with by analysing examples and designing “ice-breaker” activities at the beginning of classes with the help of freely selected discursive and creative materials. A survey of teaching materials and textbooks shall help students to find proper course materials for their internships at grammar and vocational schools.
Through a model series of lessons students get acquainted with teaching and working methods of psychology and philosophy classes and analytic thinking about competency-based teaching goals (attainments, skills and attitudes). The role of key questions in the teaching process is also promoted. Thus, students reconsider pedagogical possibilities and limits of designing single units and series of lessons.
Finally, students present a teaching unit, which they put into practice during their internship.
Depending on the needs and interests of the group, aspects of the design of classes (e. g., assessment) can be considered in greater depth, and psychological and philosophical working methods (case study, experiment, test, etc.; text interpretation, concept analysis, Socratic dialogue, ethical problem discussion, etc., respectively) can be dealt with.

Methods
The seminar makes use of different methods such as theoretical contributions by teachers, 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
- Preparation before and after seminar meetings
- Elaboration and presentations of assignments
