Nachgefragt: Brauchen gute Lehrkräfte die richtigen Gene, die richtige Ausbildung oder die richtige Erfahrung?

Ringvorlesung im Sommersemester 2022
University of Erfurt
Prof. Dr. Ernst Hany
Event type

Opening lecture in German as part of the lecture series in the summer semester 2022. Speaker is Prof. Dr. Ernst Hany (University of Erfurt).

About the lecture

The question of whether there are "born teachers" has long been a topic of debate in academia and even more so among parents. For if one were to answer this question in the affirmative, there would be people on the other side who could by no means become good teachers. Research is currently inclined to the view that no one needs certain personality traits to be able to teach and educate well. However, if one looks closely, a differentiated picture emerges. The aim of the lecture is to present these considerations, arguments and findings.

About the Lecture Series

The joint lecture series of the University of Erfurt and the University of Applied Sciences starts a new season in April. In the summer semester, everything will revolve around "Digitalisation in Teacher Education". Under the title "Nachgefragt: Was braucht eine zukunftsfähige Lehrer*innenbildung?" (Inquired: What does a sustainable teacher education need?), the following questions will be answered, among others: Do teachers need certain personality traits, the right genes, to be able to teach well? 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 beyond art lessons and how can student teachers acquire competences to stimulate, accompany and reflect on these processes?

The event will take place digitally – on Tuesdays from 6 to 8 pm. All interested parties are cordially invited to attend. 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.
