AbstractIntroduction to machine elements and mechanical systems as basics of product development. Case studies of their application in products and systems.
ObjectiveThe students get an overview of the main mechanical components (machine elements) which are used in mechanical engineering. Selected examples will demonstrate how these can be assembled into functional parts and complete systems such as machinery, tools or actuators. At the same time, also the problem of production (production-oriented design) is discussed.
In concurrent lectures / exercises "technical drawing and CAD" the design implementation will be practiced.
Content- Innovation Process: A Quick Overview
- Stages of the planning and design process
- Requirements for a design and technical implementation
- Choice of materials - Basic principles of a material-specific design
- Manufacturing process - fundamentals of a production-oriented design
- Connections, fuses, seals
- Machine-standard elements
- Storage & guides
- Transmission and its components
- Drives

The idea of machine elements is complemented by case studies and illustrated.
Lecture notesThe lecture slides will be published beforehand on the website of the pd|z.
Prerequisites / NoticeFor Bachelor studies in Mechanical and Process Engineering, the lecture "Maschinenelemente" (HS) is examined together with "Innovationsprozess" (FS) in the exam "Basisprüfung Maschinenelemente and Innovationsprozess".
151-1072-00LMentored Thesis in Didactics of Mechanical and Process Engineering Restricted registration - show details 2 credits4AQ. Lohmeyer
AbstractThe purpose of the mentored thesis is to bring together the findings from didactics and to expand them by incorporating specific teaching techniques and teaching methods. The thesis can be thematically aligned with the subsequent teaching internship.
ObjectiveThe students learn to link theoretical topics from the didactic education with practice-relevant aspects and to articulate the result in written form by means of a suitable task.
ContentThe choice of the topic and the definition of the contents takes place in agreement between the students and the mentor. The topic must be chosen in such a way that the learning objective described above can be achieved.
Lecture notesA short guideline is available.
LiteratureThe use of suitable literature is part of the assignment.
Prerequisites / NoticePrerequisite: Both didactics courses completed.

The work should be completed before the start of the internship.
151-1079-00LTeaching Internship Including Examination Lessons Mechanical and Process Engineering Restricted registration - show details
The teaching internship can just be visited if all other courses of TC are completed.
Repetition of the teaching internship is excluded even if the examination lessons are to be repeated.

AbstractStudents apply the insights, abilities and skills they have acquired within the context of an educational institution. They observe 10 lessons and teach 20 lessons independently. Two of them are as assessed as Examination Lessons.
Objective- Students use their specialist-subject, educational-science and subject-didactics training to draw up concepts for teaching.
- They are able to assess the significance of tuition topics for their subject from different angles (including interdisciplinary angles) and impart these to their pupils.
- They learn the skills of the teaching trade.
- They practise finding the balance between instruction and openness so that pupils can and, indeed, must make their own cognitive contribution.
- They learn to assess pupils' work.
- Together with the teacher in charge of their teacher training, the students constantly evaluate their own performance.
ContentDie Studierenden sammeln Erfahrungen in der Unterrichtsführung, der Auseinandersetzung mit Lernenden, der Klassenbetreuung und der Leistungsbeurteilung. Zu Beginn des Praktikums plant die Praktikumslehrperson gemeinsam mit dem/der Studierenden das Praktikum und die Arbeitsaufträge. Die schriftlich dokumentierten Ergebnisse der Arbeitsaufträge sind Bestandteil des Portfolios der Studierenden. Anlässlich der Hospitationen erläutert die Praktikumslehrperson ihre fachlichen, fachdidaktischen und pädagogischen Überlegungen, auf deren Basis sie den Unterricht geplant hat und tauscht sich mit dem/der Studierenden aus. Die von dem/der Studierenden gehaltenen Lektionen werden vor- und nachbesprochen.
Die Themen für die beiden Prüfungslektionen am Schluss des Praktikums erfahren die Studierenden in der Regel eine Woche vor dem Prüfungstermin. Sie erstellen eine Vorbereitung gemäss Anleitung und reichen sie spätestens 48 Stunden vor Beginn der Prüfunglektionen den beiden Prüfungsexperten ein. Die gehaltenen Lektionen werden kriteriumsbasiert beurteilt. Die Beurteilung umfasst auch die schriftliche Vorbereitung und eine mündliche Reflexion des Kandidaten/der Kandidatin über die gehaltenen Lektionen im Rahmen eines kurzen Kolloquiums.
Lecture notesDokument: schriftliche Vorbereitung für Prüfungslektionen.
LiteratureWird von der Praktikumslehrperson bestimmt.
Prerequisites / NoticeAlle anderen Lehrveranstaltungen des DZ (inkl. der Mentorierten Arbeit) sind erfolgreich abgeschlossen.
227-0857-00LDidactics I for D-MAVT and D-ITET Restricted registration - show details 4 credits3GQ. Lohmeyer, A. Colotti
AbstractDidactics I focuses on teaching techniques as building blocks of typical lessons. This is done on the basis of the findings of teaching and learning research and their implementation in practice. The aim is the planning and implementation of effective teaching sequences as well as their evaluation and reflection.
Objective- The students can plan, conduct and critically reflect single lessons.
- They orient themselves towards the academic goals and take into account existing knowledge, the professional environment and the ambitions of the students.
- They can apply the basic teaching principles meaningfully in their subject and suitably structure the learning phases.
- They can reduce and present complex technical content such that it is in a form suitable for the students to learn.
- They have considered examples of the common conceptual errors encountered by students
Content- Planning a teaching unit
- Opening a lecture
- Direct Instruction
- Blackboard writing and slide design
- Develop exercises
- Practicing teaching
- Excursion Fachhochschule
Lecture notesLecture materials are provided via Moodle.
Prerequisites / NoticePrerequisite: Educational science course already completed or at the same time.
