Abstract

Reflexive methods, e.g. reflexive photography, storytelling, meta reflections combined with video vignettes, shall close the mind behavior gap, which can rather be described as a mind perception gap, in all phases of the teacher training by increasing self-awareness through a sensitization to spatial perception and constructions and by making the students aware of unconscious behavior patterns as a contribution to transformative education.

Project description

Based on the conception of a new subject module G.7 “Space and Place: Key Concepts in Geography and their Analysis” for students in the Master's degree Lehramt an Gymnasien (teaching at secondary schools), which focuses on central school-relevant contents of the current core curricula for geography, a subject-related curricular concept for school internships will be developed, evaluated, optimized and subsequently consolidated in the form of joint study and practice days. Reflexive methods as tools for promoting reflexivity and initiating transformative education within the framework of spatial analyses will be collected from a school practical perspective by teachers in the form of explorative focus group discussions in order to derive quality standards for both the supervision of school internships and the G.7 module. Well-tested tools will be disseminated and evaluated in further training events for the 3rd phase as well as in study seminars for student teachers. An interdisciplinary exchange is envisaged via the Graduate School (Graduate Lab).

Reflexive methods, e.g. reflexive photography, storytelling, meta reflections combined with video vignettes, shall close the mind behavior gap, which can rather be described as a mind perception gap, in all phases of the teacher training by increasing self-awareness through a sensitization to spatial perception and constructions and by making the students aware of unconscious behavior patterns as a contribution to transformative education. Particular consideration will be given to the key concepts of everyday geography, emotional geography and body as space/as place, which are still underrepresented in the German academic discourse.
