Guide to scientific work

Internationalization in (core) studies

Internationalization is currently one of the central buzzwords in teacher:ing education. The core curriculum - together with the Center for Teacher:ing Education - strives to provide student teachers with opportunities for exchange and comparison with other educational and social systems in order to stimulate reflections on their own school system as well as of the well-known practice of teaching and education. Closely linked to international perspectives on teaching, schooling and teacher:ing are questions of education for sustainable development (ESD) in both global and local contexts. 

Internationalization and ESD can be addressed and experienced in different ways:

Choice of thematically relevant courses or courses taught by foreign guest lecturers in the core curriculum 

Participation in field trips on the German education system in international comparison.

 It is possible to complete part of the Schulpraktische Studien abroad. Information and advice on this can be obtained from the Department for Practical School Studies (Referat für Schulpraktische Studien), with whom internships abroad must be arranged. 

Further information and references to other programs for student teachers can also be found on the pages of the International Office. An overview compiled by the Department for Practical School Studies and the International Office shows the many funding opportunities and scholarship programs for internships abroad. 

Completion of courses in education, educational and social sciences as well as educational psychology abroad within the framework of a semester abroad (information and advice on this can be obtained from the International Office)
