Main themes
"General didactics and education to interdisciplinarity" Main topics - how do we learn ? - what are the teaching aims ? - how to conceive and organise the training ? - why and how to assess ? - how to help the students in trouble ? - how to handle the class heterogeneity ? Through these several topics we will particularly approach matters relating to the motivation, the metacognitive process, the consideration of the students conceptions, etc. The contents will be selected according to the actual research in the teaching and learning fields. The emphasis will be constantly put on the approach of the learner. Methods - active approaches : we will pay a particular attention to the consistency between the education methods used in the "General didactic" course and the conceptual tools developed ; - analysis and questioning of the conceptions that the students have concerning education and training ; - analysis of the teaching materials, tools and concrete cases ; summary report ; - development of some key questions : the students will be allowed to train exercise analysis approaches ; The analysed themes will be collegially defined by the teachers team according to questions raised by the students after their confrontation with the school field. Tools of analysis of the teaching practices will be supplied or built in the course of the activity. They will mainly aim at developing in/with the students methodological competences and a reflexive view on them.
Aims

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 Aims The activity will be organised in 2 complementary parts: First part - to lead the future teachers to develop a habit of reflexive practice argued in their professional life ; - equip the future teachers on the conceptual way in order to be able to analyse, to build and to improve a didactic sequence in a given learning context. Second part - to confront their experiments of training courses and to take a critical retreat compared to their observations and their actions within the school framework - to analyze the teaching practices observed and implemented within the framework of their training courses of observation and teaching ; - to develop the use of conceptual frameworks of references and grids of analysis in order to carry a new glance on their pedagogic practices and to improve them. The prospects are that the future teachers get used to/develop a habit of well-argued reflexive practice in their professional life.
