Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

The course consists of the following parts:

Part 1: Mathematical didactics II 1.5 credits

Part 2: Placement 12 credits

And one of the following parts depending on combination of subjects:

Part 3: The didactics of the natural sciences 1.5 credits

Part 4: Didactics of technology 1.5 credits

Part 1, 3 and 4 include specialised studies of planning, organisation and evaluation of teaching and students' learning in respective subjects, based on current regulations and current didactic research. Language and communication in the classroom are treated. Security and responsibility at laboratory teaching in school is touched. Furthermore, application of different assessment forms is treated, to evaluate students' knowledge in mathematics and technology or the scientific subjects.

Part 2: Placement

The student deepens his knowledge of the activities and organisation of the school, and participate in the daily teaching on relevant level. The course focuses on the teacher's professional role and the school as an educational environment. The studies imply that theory and practice will be integrated, based on experiences, relevant subject knowledge and systematic reflection. The course content is designed based on expected credits awarded and the activities in school.

Intended learning outcomes

After passing the course, the participant should be able to:

Part 1 and Part 3 or part 4:

- account for, discuss and problematise different ways to plan and organise teaching of respective subject

- discuss the application of different assessment forms to evaluate students' knowledge in mathematics and technology or natural science subjects, based on current research and proven experience.

Part 2:

- in communication with students adapt one's listening, talking and writing to different students' background, and evaluate these abilities

- in consultation with supervisor get an overview of how one, in a context adequate and functional language, in writing or orally, communicate with guardians in groups or individually about students' learning and development,

-independently and in different situations respond to students in an empathic and respectful way, in accordance with the fundamental values of the school and critically review and analyse one's own values and attitudes that can be of importance for the treatment of students, and relate these to the fundamental values of the school

- write and justify a longer subject plan with clear aims that are related to didactic theories and relevant national regulations in order to stimulate each student's learning and development in the best possible way, and carry out and together with others evaluate items in the planning with respect to the aims

-independently and responsibly lead and develop teaching, based on adequate subject knowledge, subject didactics and didactic knowledge

-independently, and by means of knowledge of grading and assessment, document, analyse and assess students' learning and constructively communicate the assessment to the students

-independently and based on didactic knowledge use digital tools and media in the educational activities

-use proven strategies to prevent and counteract discrimination or other insulting treatment of students, and promote equal opportunities and equality perspective, according to the fundamental values of the school

-based on one's own experiences and the intended learning outcomes of the course, describe, assess and give examples of own strengths and fields of development prior to future educational work.
