AbstractDas Buch "Lernwirksam unterrichten" (Felten/Stern) wurde durchgearbeitet und die Fragen auf dem Netz wurden beantwortet. In einer gern kurz nach der Prüfungslektion einzeln oder in Kleingruppen stattfindenden einstündigen Besprechung mit Elsbeth Stern werden für das Unterrichten relevante lernpsychologische Erkenntnisse diskutiert.
ObjectiveIn den Veranstaltungen zu den Erziehungswissenschaften geht es um die Vermittlung von Reflexionswissen über schulisches Lernen. Lehrpersonen müssen das Verhalten und die Leistung ihrer Schülerinnen und Schüler interpretieren und eigene Handlungsoptionen abwägen. Es soll noch einmal darüber reflektiert werden, welche lernpsychologischen Erkenntnisse dabei helfen können.

AbstractDas von Csikszentmihalyi entworfene Flow-Konzept bietet ein interessantes Rahmenmodell für einen motivierten, erlebnisorientierten und lernwirksamen Sportunterricht in der Schule. Im Rahmen der Lehrveranstaltungen werden ausgewählte Aspekte (u.a. Flowerleben, Motivation, Aufmerksamkeitslenkung, Feedback) diskutiert und in die eigene Bewegungspraxis im Lehr-Lern-Kontext umgesetzt.
ObjectiveDie TeilnehmerInnen erhalten einen vertieften inhaltlichen Einblick in das Flow-Konzept sowie in verwandte motivationspsychologi¬sch (Selbstbestimmungstheorie nach Deci & Ryan, Leistungsmotivation u.a.m) und differential¬psychologisch (Selbstwirksamkeit, Attribution u.a.m) bedeutsame Konstrukte.

AbstractIn teams, participants in this seminar conduct their own research project. Each team is advised by one of the researchers serving as lecturers in this course. Basic conceptual and methodological issues are the topic of a series of plenary meetings; however, the major part of the work is done in small-group meetings with the advising researcher, and in self-directed research projects.
ObjectiveThe course is targeted at advanced students who have taken an interest in gathering practical research experience in the field of Learning & Instruction. In teams, students conduct their own research projects (on request, working alone is also possible); thus, the course requires a high amount of self-directed working. Students are personally advised, and supported in their research project, by one of the researchers serving as lecturers in this course. During the first half the semester, relevant methodological knowledge and skills are practiced during plenary meetings and in students` independent reading.
Prerequisites / NoticeThe successful completion of EW1 and EW3 ist a precondition for taking this course. However, with agreement obtained from the lecturers in advance, students holding equivalent prior knowledge from other courses may also be eligible for this course.
