If there are no “ready-made” teachers, then it is even more important that teacher training programs question how future “unfinished” teachers can be prepared for the challenges and demands that await them in their chosen profession. Organized by the Institute of Educational Science’s Department of Education at the University of Stuttgart, the Stuttgart conference "Gesellschaftliche Transformationen und professionelle Herausforderungen: Lehrkräftebildung im Wandel", will be taking an in-depth look at this topic.
The conference will focus on the following topics and their importance in the field of educational science:
Necessary skills and abilities for teachers in everyday school life, both now and in the future.
Cultural diversity as a didactical challenge
Skill development for future teachers in terms of their role in diverse classes
Conflicts between theory and practice – requirements for the different phases of teacher training
The changing demands on teachers in terms of teaching social behavior and education in general
This conference is aimed at academics currently in the qualification phase (doctoral researchers and postdocs), who are currently working on one of the topics mentioned. You will have the opportunity to present and discuss your work. The conference is open to different disciplines.
Furthermore, students studying for a teaching degree will also be given the opportunity to discuss these topics, focusing on theory and practice and the challenges and demands awaiting them in their future profession.
Please register by March 31, 2020. Participation is free of charge.
The program is only available in German.
