Upper Secondary School Teacher Training in History
The aim of the preparation of the students of the teaching of history for secondary schools is predominantly the acquisition and deepening of professional knowledge of history from their baccalaureate studies, the acquisition of the didactic competencies for the instruction of history, development of the ability to manage pedagogical-psychological situations associated with teaching and with the operation of a school and development of the diagnostic and special educational skills connected with demand of an individual and differentiated approach to pupils/students.
The students perform the practical component of professional preparation through pedagogical practice. The subjects of Didactic Workshop, Pedagogical Practice I, II and Seminar for Pedagogical Practice allows the students to master the professional competencies necessary in the everyday work of a teacher, to become aware of their own professional needs and gradually to take responsibility for the planning, implementation and evaluation of instruction. During the practice, the student acquires a real idea of what the everyday work of a teacher involves. After mastering the teaching practices, the student is able to plan, implement and evaluate his/her own instruction at the appropriate level of standard of professional qualities and also autonomously perform all the other activities necessary for the performance of the teaching profession at a defined quality level. The student is also able to identify the strengths and weaknesses of his/her professional performance and to propose personal development goals, how to achieve them and to implement them in the given time.
A component of teaching practice is also the Seminar for Pedagogical Practice, which provides students a space for sharing and reflecting on the experience from the practice and helps them develop their reflective and self-reflective skills. The method of guiding the seminars is in spired by the concept of so-called reflecting teams, which is characterized by the cooperation of more experts from various areas. A field didactician along with a pedagogue or psychologist assures the instruction. Selected accompanying teachers are also regularly invited to the instruction. Thanks to completion of the seminar, the student is able to share and reflect openly on experience from his/her own pedagogical practice in the professional community and also use reflexion and self-reflection purposefully as an instrument of professional learning.
The graduates of the study programme of teaching for secondary school will serve with priority as teachers of history at secondary schools (general-purpose secondary schools and specialized secondary schools) and further also in the area of project didactics in museum and other educational institutions and the structures of tourism.
Students have a pre-defined list of required courses, which are supplemented with selective and elective courses. The student pays full attention to the single field of study chosen.
