Go to the superordinate section
Compulsory Module 1: Preparatory Course in Mathematics (2.5 ECTS-Credits; 2 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Graduates are able to describe the fundamentals of elementary mathematics and to apply their knowledge for solving mathematical problems..
Compulsory Module 5: Physics of Matter (10 ECTS-Credits; 8 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Graduates are able to describe and explain the structure of matter as a principle of physics and to study similar contents independently. They are able to generalize the fundamentals of particle, nuclear, and quantum physics and to apply this knowledge for solving problems and presentations in the classroom.
Compulsory Module 7: Physics in Everyday Life, Historical Aspects of Physics (5 ECTS-Credits; 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Graduates are able to recognize the role of physics in the historical context for different processes in nature and technology and illustrate it with selected examples. They are able to independently elaborate similar contents and to impart them in school. They are able to use examples in their teaching to make the classes more interesting.
Compulsory Module 9: Theoretical Physics 1 for Prospectice Teachers (5 ECTS-Credits; 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Graduates are able to describe and explain mechanics as a basis of theoretical physics and to independently elaborate similar contents. They are able to generalize the fundamentals of theoretical mechanics and are able to and to apply this knowledge for solving problems and presentations in the classroom.
Compulsory Module 12: Subject Didactics 1 (5 ECTS-Credits; 4 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Graduates are able to name characteristics of different teaching concepts, reflect their implementation in the classroom, name basic objectives and contents of physics lessons and to explain the importance of physics (physics lessons) for social and technical developments. They know prevailing teaching scripts and their empirically researched deficits for designing physics lessons. They are able to classify competence-oriented assignments in the system of educational standards. Graduates know important teaching methods, presentation forms and forms of conversation in physics lessons. They are able to select methods which promote competence development and thus to consider aspects of individualization and differentiation for heterogeneous learning groups. They know central functions of experiments and learning tasks for teaching and develop competence-related tasks. They are able to develop learning-promoting diagnosis and feedback procedures and use different forms of performance evaluation and assessment.
Compulsory Module 14: Classroom Experiments (5 ECTS-Credits; 5 h) (no courses)
Prerequisites for registration: none
Learning Outcome: Graduates know categories of experiments, their functions in physics lessons as well as their relevant didactical potential, and thus they recognize the central position of the experiment in physics lessons. They know common school experiments for different topics in physics lessons and materials available in schools. They are able to select demonstration and pupils¿ experiments in a targeted and pupil-oriented manner and to implement experiments safely. They are able to plan, prepare, implement and use experiments in a targeted manner. Apart from practical skills, they know the subject-specific and didactical background of different experiments.
