AbstractTeaching is a complex skill. The lecture comprises (a) presentations about the theoretical background of this skill, (b) discussions of practical aspects, and (c) practical exercises.
ObjectiveThe participants have the conceptual und procedural knowledge, and skills necessary for long-term planning, preparing, and implementing good lessons. They can apply this knowledge on different topics of their scientific STEM-background.
ContentWe discuss characteristics of successful lessons and how to design such lessons by using curricula and lesson plans, teaching goals and a variety of teaching methods.
Lecture notesThe lecture comprises interactive parts where the participants elaborate and extend their knowledge and skills. Thus, there is no comprehensive written documentation of the lecture. The participants can download presentation slides, learning materials, and templates from "Moodle".
LiteratureThe necessary literature can be downloaded from "Moodle".
Prerequisites / NoticeThe lecture EW2 can only be attended by students who already successfully completed the lecture Human Learning (EW1).
There will be two independent lectures for different groups of students. You will get further information in an email at the beginning of the semester.
To get the Credits you have to
- regularly attend to the lecture
- have the grade 4 or higher in the final written exam.

AbstractThe seminar is dealing with findings from psychological and educational research, which is important for the professional knowledge needed for classroom practice and explaining learning outcomes. We will discuss manuscripts for a book and the feedback from the students.
Objective1. The students understand the important elements that constitutes professional knowledge of teachers.
2. The students gain in depth knowledge of specific elements of professional knowledge of teachers.
3. The students are able to express their own view on these specific elements of professional knowledge of teachers.
4. The students write an evaluation about the content of the texts, and they arguments will be considered in the final version by mentioning their names, if they wish.
ContentDie Vorbereitung und Durchführung von lernwirksamem Unterricht an Gymnasien (und auf anderen Schulstufen) ist ein komplexer Vorgang. Er beinhaltet u.a. die folgenden Aspekte:

• Wissen über das menschliche Lernen
• Fähigkeit Unterricht langfristig zu planen
• Fähigkeit, den Schulstoff in einer für die SuS nachvollziehbaren Weisen zu sequenzieren
• Fähigkeiten, den Stoff in Form von konkreten Lernzielen zu formulieren
• Kompetenz, für das Erreichen der Lernziele die jeweils passende Methode auszuwählen und lernwirksam zu implementieren
• Kompetenzen zur Wissensdiagnose und zur förderlichen Lernbegleitung (Formative Assessment)
• Fähigkeit, Lernleistungen adäquat zu bewerten (Summative Assessment)
• Kompetenz, eine Lerngruppe erfolgreich zu führen (Classroom Management)
• Fähigkeiten, um mit den psychosozialen Anforderungen des Lehrberufs umgehen zu können
• Fähigkeit, mit Stress umgehen zu können, um Lehrberuf langfristig gesund zu bleiben
• Kenntnisse zu haben über die Methoden der empirischen Lehr- und Lern-Forschung

Das an der ETH entstehende Buch „Professionelles Begründungs- und Handlungswissen für Lehrpersonen“ führt alle diese Aspekte auf der Grundlage des Angebot-Nutzen-Ertragsmodell in detaillierter und kohärenter Weise aus. Die Studierenden bekommen im Rahmen der Lehrveranstaltung die Gelegenheit, ein Manuskript des Buches in der ersten Fassung zu lesen und den Autor/innen aus ihrer Sicht eine Rückmeldung zu den einzelnen Kapiteln zu geben.

Diese Rückmeldungen werden dann in geeigneter Weise bei der Überarbeitung des Manuskriptes in die Endfassung einfliessen und die Studierenden werden, sofern sie dies wünschen, im Vorwort mit einem Dank erwähnt.
Lecture notesDie Studierenden bekommen ein Manuskript des an der ETH entstehenden Buches „Professionelles Begründungs- und Handlungswissen für Lehrpersonen“. Sie verpflichten sich, alle Teile des Manuskriptes absolut vertraulich zu behandeln und Rückmeldungen zu ausgewählten Kapiteln zu geben.

Forms of learning
Theoretical foundations will be taught in workshops which contain different means of activation and interaction such as group work, panel discussions, and individual work. Subsequently, this knowledge will be transfered and applied in different school-relevant situations by means of role plays, discussing of cases and video sequences, as well as reflections of practical experiences.
