It starts with an introduction by Professor Susanne Jurkowski and Professor Ernst Hany on 5 April. One week later, on 12 April, Professor Hany will then ask in his lecture "Do good teachers need the right genes, the right training or the right experience?" For the question of whether there are "born teachers" has long agitated academia and even more so parenting. Research currently tends towards the view that no one needs certain personality traits to be able to teach and educate well. But if one looks closely, a differentiated picture emerges. The aim of this lecture is to present these considerations, arguments and findings.
And the following lectures will also focus on important questions concerning the training of teachers: What does cooperation in school and university mean? How can one learn to conduct problem-solving classroom discussions? How do I recognise educational myths and why are they a problem? What relevance do aesthetic educational processes have in schools, even beyond art lessons, and how can student teachers acquire competences to stimulate, accompany and reflect on these processes? These are just some of the questions that will be answered in the summer semester as part of the lecture series.
The lectures will be streamed live on the Youtube channel of the University of Erfurt (https://www.youtube.com/c/UniErfurtLive). Registration is not required.
