Annotation

Course structure: One third of the curriculum of the programme consists of contents and methods of teaching-learning research, science studies, university research and media education research. These sub-disciplines relevant to university didactics form 4 of 7 modules. A further third of the curriculum enables programme participants to undertake project studies. The students work on a practically relevant problem of their own choice using scientific methods in theory, empiricism and concept. The framework around the 4 thematic modules and the project study programme is formed by a practically oriented entry into the programme (didactics module) and the master's thesis at the end of the programme. The course of study with a scope of 60 credit points (LP) is designed in such a way that it can be studied while working within four semesters. The workload per semester is set at 15 LP, which requires an average time investment of two days per week. All events are offered online (synchronous and asynchronous scenarios).
