Center for Technology-Enhanced Learning

NwT events

You are studying NwT, that is science and technology for a teaching profession? Then you can find information about our courses in this area here. We will show you how digital elements find their way into your (future) teaching, how to use them and what you can show with them.

These courses are explicitly only offered for teacher training in science and technology.

Further information is also available from the Center for Teacher Education (ZLB) and the Institute for Vocational Education and General Pedagogy.

Didactics of Science and Technology

Prof. Dr. Gerd Gidion; Stefan Burgemeister; David Lohner

Based on the reception of a selected range of specialist literature, the event will address essential aspects of didactics for general (NW) technology teaching. The topics considered from a scientific perspective are linked to various examples of application. Fundamental goals of the subject area in the school context are taken up as well as the determination and consideration of learning goals of individual teaching topics and teaching situations. The technology-related contents are chosen with regard to their relevance to school and their immediate usability in the seminar subject didactics.


Design of teaching and learning processes in science and technology lessons

Prof. Dr. Gerd Gidion; Dipl.-Biol., M. Eng., M.A. Daniel Weichsel

In this blended learning seminar, participants learn to design teaching units for the subject 'science and technology' on the basis of subject-specific educational standards and technical-didactic principles. The focus here is on the project method: Students deal with the basics of project management, working with groups of students and the evaluation of project-like work and discuss the challenges involved. During the semester, students will develop their own teaching units.


Measurement, control, regulation with the microcontroller

Prof. Dr. Gerd Gidion; Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Andreas Sexauer

The participants learn to implement basic control and regulation tasks with a microcontroller. This gives them an introduction to digital electronics. The basics of electronic circuits and components are deepened and the programming of the microcontroller is learned. At the same time, this course serves to give the students a methodical insight into the design of blended learning events and project-oriented teaching.
