551-0961-00LMentored Work Subject Didactics Biology A Restricted registration - show details
The Subject Didactics as well as possible branch-specific requirements must be fulfilled prior to commencing the mentored paper.
2 credits4AP. Faller, H. Stocker
AbstractIn their mentored work on subject didactics, students put into practice the contents of the subject-didactics lectures. Under supervision, they compile tuition materials enabling effective learning and/or analyse and reflect on certain topics from a subject-based and pedagogical perspective.
ObjectiveThe objectives for the students are

- to be able to familiarise themselves with a tuition topic by consulting different sources, acquiring materials and reflecting on the relevance of the topic and the access they have selected to this topic from a specialist, subject-didactics, pedagogical, and potentially social perspective.

- to prove that they can independently compile a tuition sequence and develop it to deployment.
ContentThematische Schwerpunkte
Die Gegenstände der mentorierten Arbeit in Fachdidaktik stammen in der Regel aus dem gymnasialen Unterricht.

Lernformen
Die Studierenden wählen ein individuelles Thema und erstellen dazu eine eigenständige Arbeit. Sie werden dabei von ihrer Betreuungsperson begleitet. Die mentorierte Arbeit ist Teil des Portfolios der Studierenden.
Lecture notesEine kurze Anleitung zur mentorierten Arbeit in Fachdidaktik wird zur Verfügung gestellt.
LiteratureDie Literatur ist themenspezifisch. Die Studierenden beschaffen sie sich in der Regel selber (siehe Lernziele). In besonderen Fällen wird sie vom Betreuer zur Verfügung gestellt.
Prerequisites / NoticeBeginn nach Absprache jederzeit möglich, jedoch erst nach Abschluss der Fachdidaktik I und II und nach Erfüllung allfälliger fachwissenschaftlicher Auflagen.

Die Arbeit sollte vor Beginn des Unterrichtspraktikums abgeschlossen werden.

551-0973-00LSpecialized Biology Course with an Educational Focus: Evolution Restricted registration - show details 6 credits2G + 13AH. Stocker, Y. Barral, K. Köhler
AbstractSpecialist aspects of biology with a focus on evolution are covered from the angle of imparting these to pupils, their historical development, and their significance for the subject, the individual and society.
ObjectiveAfter successful completion of the module, students should be able
- to retrieve in-depth knowledge of biology with a special focus on evolution and to impart this to others.
- to analyse controversial topics and to give factual explanations for these.
- to conduct more in-depth work on a research topic and to compile a tuition unit based on this topic
- to prepare tuition units involving complex learning matter at a high specialist level which are suitably tailored to the recipients, and to teach these in a manner conducive to learning.
ContentSelected biological topics, with a special focus on evolution, are dealt with under consideration of the special needs of persons involved in teaching.
The module comprises lectures, a book club, and a seminar thesis.
Lecture notesTeaching materials are available online on Moodle.
LiteratureLiterature and references are posted online on Moodle.
Prerequisites / NoticeThe Specialized Biology Course with an Educational Focus consists of two modules (6 CP each). In the fall semester, the focus is on evolution. The module of the spring semester deals with biological concepts. Students attending both modules can start with either module.

Performance is assessed during the course of the entire module. Active participation in the course is required. The thesis (including oral presentation) has to be completed.

The Specialized Biology Course with an Educational Focus (6+6 CP) can be acknowledged, in agreement with the advisor of the respective elective major, as one of the two obligatory research projects (each 15 CP). In such a case, additional 3 CP must be obtained in another course.

In case of overbooking of the course, students enrolled in the Teaching Diploma in Biology will have priority.
