Digital Learning Landscape: Inclusive Education

Digital Learning Landscape: Inclusive Education

The lecture “Digital Learning Landscape: Inclusive Education” can be found in the learning management system of the Leibniz University Hannover. This lecture is part of the compulsory programme in which all teacher education students participate. This includes not only the students of the Interdisciplinary Bachelor’s degree, but also students from the Bachelor Special Education and the Bachelor Technical Education. This joint learning is crucial for the students later working life and the implementation of inclusion, as in practice factors such as cooperation, exchange, teamwork and the ability to work in a team between teachers of different school types and beyond have proven to be important conditions for success in practice (cf. Werning, Mackowiak, Rothe, & Müller 2017).

In terms of content, the learning landscape encompasses learning packages of various subject didactics and revolves primarily around the content of special education. The students are thus sensitised to current and future special education fields and questions and are introduced to a basic understanding of profession-specific challenges. The contents of various departments offer a broad-based introduction to the topic of inclusion.

TASKS AND CHALLENGES OF INCLUSION IN TEACHER EDUCATION STUDIES

Inclusive education poses a fundamental challenge for the German education system. The introduction of the inclusive school has a variety of effects on teacher education and acquisition of professional competences in the handling of differences in schools and lessons.

With the reform of teacher education, work is being done on the development of joint offers in inclusive education for students of different form of schooling. In the course of which, in summer semester 2020, a lecture will start under the direction of Prof. Dr. Rolf Werning:

"Digital Learning Landscape: Inclusive Education". It is obligatory for all teacher education programmes and is based on the basic competences of the Master's regulation for all teacher education degrees in Lower Saxony.

In addition to the joint digital lecture, in-depth courses in the newly created elective area of the Bachelor's degree programmes are offered in all teacher education programmes.

In the summer semester 2020, students will work on eleven topic blocks. In concrete terms, this means that the students 1. look at all eleven topic blocks in the learning environment, 2. work on the assignments contained in the eleven topic blocks in both individual and group work, and 3. discuss and reflect on the results of the group work phases in weekly webinars.

In addition to the content blocks, the joint discussion in a virtual seminar room - a webinar - in which the students are supported in their learning by tutors is of central importance.

This video offers an introduction to the navigation in ILIAS for students of all teacher education programmes.

The learning support within the framework of the webinars, which is covered by tutors, is based on students in the 5th semester of the Bachelor of Special Education. The support is offered here via the advanced module I.

The future tutors will not only be familiarised with the subject contents but also with the technical requirements, which mainly refer to the learning management system ILIAS and the handling of the software of the webinar. A training by ZQS/Key Competences qualifies the future tutors in so-called soft skills. Questions about how a well-structured process looks like or how to communicate appropriately and provide appreciative feedback are the focus of the tutorial jump-start.
