Educational management and vocational pedagogy
Vocational training is one of the main focuses of German development cooperation. Only well-trained specialists make a contribution to the economic, social and ecological development of a country. Functioning education systems that meet the current challenges of an increasingly technological world are indispensable for this.
German vocational education and training enjoys an excellent reputation worldwide. This applies to both in-company and school-based training. Our seminars are therefore aimed at teachers, trainers and managers in the field of vocational training. Depending on the target group, we focus on basic pedagogical elements, curricula and their development or change management processes. We also discuss the use of media or develop them together with our participants. The use of electronic media is a matter of course for us. Especially in the case of teachers, we show a wide variety of methods for teaching design and analyse their use depending on the respective teaching phase. Together with our participants, we analyse the concept of competence and focus on the attainment of action competence as a general goal of vocational education and training.
Ideally, we combine our seminars with visits to training companies, manufacturers of teaching materials, education fairs or by observing German school classes.
In the field of quality assurance we point out possibilities, critically question them with regard to their applicability as well as the goal and significance of evaluations.
