Further Information

Please refer to the accordion elements for more details on the individual components of the advanced level:


I. In the introductory seminar, elements for the professional design of teaching are repeated and the current state of development is made visible. The seminar helps to organize the various components of the advanced level and to form teams for collegial observation. In addition, each participant will develop a draft concept for the teaching project.

II. In the teaching project you will develop an innovative teaching concept that will enrich your teaching and provide an impulse for future teaching projects. At the end of the project you will write a report on the project. This project can be included in the teaching portfolio.

III. In the context of the collegial internship the participants visit each other in their courses. They give each other feedback and work on the implementation of concrete goals such as the use of media or methods. An obligatory part of the collegial internship is the preparation of a reflection report of a maximum of two pages about the internship process.

IV. You have the opportunity to take advantage of Coaching or teaching advice for three hours as part of the advanced level. The coaching is carried out by experienced coaches or employees of the FBZHL. The coaching may include an observation by the coach or an employee of the FBZHL.

V.-VI. Within the framework of the teaching portfolio – usually a text of 7 to 10 pages – you can reflect and document your own teaching activities. You have the opportunity to present your personal teaching profile for applications. In the course of the two semesters you will create the most important building blocks for your individual portfolio with professional guidance.

VII. In the presence seminar "Reflecting on intermediate results together", participants have the opportunity to present the status of the teaching project or to get feedback and suggestions for their work. Here, current questions about the level of specialization and its components, which have arisen in the course of the work, can also be clarified. In addition, there will be a half-day writing workshop on the teaching portfolio with competent supervision on this day.
