Person in charge of the module's outline Dr. Roland Weber


Through research-based learning, an exemplary understanding of the subject is developed on the basis of selected technical and methodological concepts. This technical understanding is analysed didactically and thus transferred into the perspective of the conveyance process in school. The work process and its reflexive analysis build on the already acquired professional and methodical competences of the students and promote an individual professionalisation process.

Qualification Goals


Students should reflect on the importance of concepts in the subject science (categories, basic concepts, key questions) as well as methods for gaining knowledge as a basis for professional and educational theory-based action in professional education and thus transfer the acquired professional understanding into a didactically guided modelling process of tasks. The students show a self-reflecting understanding for illustrative professional and methodical concepts of the subject, know the importance of this understanding for the transfer into school-based teaching-learning processes, apply this understanding within the framework of the didactically guided modelling of teaching-related tasks and show a deepened and reflected understanding for the importance of the didactic modelling process and its role in the reflected subject teaching.

Qualification goals:

The students develop an exemplary understanding of the subject on the basis of selected professional and methodological concepts and apply this understanding within the framework of a didactically guided modelling process of tasks related to teaching. On the basis of central questions of the subject, the students reflect on the tension between subject science and school subject, reflected knowledge and everyday knowledge.


The following modules are required: Linear Algebra incl. Foundations of Mathematics, Analysis I, Analysis II. The school internship I is still required and the competences that are taught in a specialised advanced mathematics module are recommended.


The module can be attended at FB12 in study program(s)
