TUB Teaching 2.0 follows on from the success of the first funding phase and continues to address the two main topics of attracting teacher training students and providing them with a professional training. The twin-pillar project structure from the first funding phase is maintained.
Pillar 1 focuses on attracting a heterogeneous body of teacher training students to counter the lack at national level of well-trained teachers, particularly in the areas of vocational education and technical subjects. To this end, suitable measures that proved successful in the first funding phase will be further developed. These include master's programs for students from other disciplines and professional areas as well as continuing informational outreach activities. Additionally, a teacher training project module will be incorporated into the MINTgrün orientation program at TU Berlin. Establishing and extending cooperation at inter(national) level increases the attractiveness of teacher training programs by promoting mobility, interculturalism and diversity.
Pillar 2 addresses the professionalization of future teachers. The focus here is on "task design" in the sense of analyzing and developing practice-oriented, differentiated learning and performance tasks as a basis for adaptive teaching and is expanded to include current cross-cutting issues (inclusion, diagnostics, language education, sustainability, digitalization). Cooperation labs (co labs) are established for each vocational subject area as well as for work studies. Here, students develop and revise differentiated, action and competence-oriented learning tasks in a multi-step design process with different partners. The first stage consists of discussing tasks and processes with these partners. Drafts of tasks are then optimized and augmented, taking into account the above-mentioned cross-cutting themes before evaluation by practitioners. The aim is to create teaching-learning measures at different learning locations, where our students cooperate with practitioners to prepare experience-based didactic vocational and lifeworld-oriented processes for teaching. The cross-cutting themes are anchored in the co labs for the further development and interlinking of subject matter, didactics and educational sciences as well as for an improved heterogeneity. The effectiveness of the measures (co lab / classical university teaching) to increase students' task development skills will be empirically investigated, thus strengthening evidence-based quality assurance within practice-oriented teacher education. The developed tasks are made available in a publicly accessible database.
