Learning outcomes
The main task of discipline didactics is to prepare students for teaching practice. The aim of the subject is to determine key and particular students' competations. Applicants will be able to plan and manage teaching programme and develop their diagnostic abilities including selfreflection. During the study, the student conducts a portfolio of his / her didactical materials (presentations, papers, projects, thought maps, preparations for teaching, photo and video documentation of experiments, video sequences from teaching lessons, aids and experiments database, overview of visits during his / her teaching and pedagogical outcomes at school, overview of all promotional events popularizing the disciplines). This portfolio will be used during didactic analysis during the final state exam.
Students process methodologically topics of subjects with technical orientation and apply inter-subject relationships between theory and specialized training.
