Media competence in teaching

Digitization brings with it a high dynamic. For teachers in particular, this requires an active, innovative and lifelong learning attitude. They must therefore be prepared during their studies for the constantly changing demands of digitisation. In the "digiMINT" project, the ZML focuses on creating real and virtual spaces - so-called "Digital Learning Labs" - at KIT for the development of comprehensive academic competence of teacher training students.

In addition, we conduct various events within the framework of the accompanying studies in educational science in which you as a student teacher can actively acquire media competence. It is particularly important to us that you can deal with media competence in practice in the seminars.

Currently, the series "Media Competence in Teaching" offered by us consists of three courses in which you can collect 2 CP each.

Online project seminar: Media competence in teaching - crises as drivers of innovation

How do educational institutions react to disruptive changes? Against the background of the current corona crisis, we ask ourselves the following questions: How can crises like this be used to change existing, sometimes outdated structures and generate new processes? What does it mean now for schools to deal with digitalisation in the short term and to switch to online teaching?

In the course of the seminar, we will evaluate current sources on what changes are currently taking place in the education system. The aim is to work out strategies and processes how each*r can act competently in such situations in the future. Processes and solutions are to be developed and documented within the framework of small projects. In addition to current sources, inputs on agile work in the school environment and media-didactic conception of virtual spaces form the basis of the seminar.
