Accompanying seminars in the winter semester
The basic knowledge imparted in the lecture is deepened in a subject-specific way and substantiated with application-oriented tasks.
Accompanying seminars in the practical semester
In the seminars during the practical semester, the students are supported in the independent development of language-sensitive teaching concepts for the promotion of migrant and non-migrant pupils in the context of their respective subjects and accompanied in their practical testing.
Both seminars require compulsory attendance as well as regular and active participation (§ 5 paragraph 1 and module description subject-specific examination regulations 2017).
