Scope:

The further study program „Technical Trainer in Electrical Engineering“ was developed and applied within a joint project of the State of Bremen, the German Society of International Cooperation (GIZ), and the University of Bremen (Academy of Continuing Education, Faculty of Educational Sciences & Institute Technology and Education). The course is domain-specific and combines specialized technical knowledge with innovative vocational didactics. The content and problem-solving technologies of the study program are based on the high German standards and the international body of knowledge.

Target group and didactical approach:

The certificate is aimed at teachers and trainers whose task is to train skilled workers and professionals for a global economy. To bridge the two objectives of the study program, the development of technical and training competence, an innovative training methodology is used, which is referred to as „learning and work assignments“.

This training methodology was developed at the Institute Technology and Education (ITB) and is also used in the VET teacher and trainer courses, which are offered regular to German teachers and trainers at the University of Bremen.

Moduls and Content:

Vocational Didactics and Teaching Methodology:

Learn and Work Assignments (introduction), role of teacher and learner (introduction), cooperative learning (introduction), self-directed learning (introduction), problem-based learning (introduction), organizing group work (introduction), presentation (introduction), feedback (introduction), learning motivation (introduction), self-concept (motivation), culture and values (introduction), safety and environment (introduction)
