New international perspectives on future teachers’ professional competencies will be the focus of this congress.
The new approaches regard teacher competencies as a continuum which includes new concepts on teachers’ classroom activities such as teachers’ noticing or teachers’ professional vision. These new theoretical approaches are complemented by new methodological approaches, amongst others video-based studies using video-vignettes.
The aim of the congress is to enrich the understanding of future teachers’ competence development by plenary lectures from international and national experts. In addition, symposia focusing on central themes of the Qualitätsoffensive Lehrerbildung will present first results of projects within the initiative. The congress shall support the exchange between projects within the Qualitätsoffensive Lehrerbildung from an international perspective enhancing the understanding of important theoretical frameworks and methodological approaches. The project “Professional Actions of Teachers in Order to Promote Subject-Related Learning“ (ProfaLe) as well as other projects from the Qualitätsoffensive Lehrerbildung funded by the German Ministry of Education and Research are invited to participate in this challenging congress and to enrich it with their own contributions.
