Content (Syllabus outline)

Students are performing teaching practice in agreement with physics teacher at schools who has a rank of mentor or higher. Teacher mentor observes student’s work and advise him/her in preparing independent lessons. Teaching practice is performed in agreement and coordination between the school and responsible teacher at University.

Competences:

Ability to plan and conduct physics lesson in authentic environment
Ability to communicate with students, their parents and supervisors.

Intended learning outcomes

Acquired knowledge
Knowledge and experiences with specifics of school functioning and with educational system in Slovenia.

Application
Writing a lesson plan for physics in high school; class organization and management.

Reflection
Improving student’s won teaching style and perception of knowledge based on reflections on her/his teaching practice.

Transferable competencies – not limited on one subject only
Ability to communicate science topics with general (laymen) public.

Learning and teaching methods

Observations of expert teachers, conducting independent lessons, discussions, consultations

Assessment

Conducting independent lessons, submitted teaching practice report
Grades: Passed /Not passed
