Observation Practicum in Didactics
Lecturer(s): asist. Breznikar Nina, doc. dr. Makovec Radovan Danijela, izr. prof. dr. Štefanc Damijan
The aim of the observation practicum in didactics is for students to become familiar with the organisation of work in educational institutions and to observe the teaching process in one (or two) teaching subject(s).
The student will gain the basic insight into how an educational institution functions as a whole and into the process of educational work within a selected teaching subject.
He/she will conduct an interview with at least two qualified educational experts, preferably with his/her practical mentor at school and one of the representives of school management (headmaster, headmaster’s assistant, school counsellor etc.).
The exact content of the practicum and schedule of activities is a matter of agreement between the student and his/her teaching mentor at selected school.
The observation practicum consists of 9 hours of observation of the selected subject, and 1 hour aimed at interviewing a representative of the school management.
