Facilitation and support of children's educational processes SE

Lector: Mag.a Barbara Lehner, MA

1.5SWS
3ECTS

Lecture contents

The course begins with a look at your own learning process in order to work out what prerequisites are required to stimulate learning processes. In addition to beneficial learning prerequisites, tools are also required to assess development. In the course, you will learn about theories and a method of observation that enable you to think about development and development needs as well as to understand the importance of the interaction processes between child and educator.
For the course, observations of children in their interaction with the pedagogue and other children are to be written using the “Work Discussion” method developed in London. Together, the protocols are used to work out how it can be understood, why children act the way they do, and the specific meaning of the action or intervention of the educator. On the basis of such a reflective assessment of the child's behavior and inner experience, the child can subsequently be supported in its development and educational processes can be stimulated.

Assessment methods

Continuous assessment
Timely writing of a "Work Discussion" protocol and its interpretation in the sense of the knowledge learned in the course as a thesis. Dedicated participation in the work processes in the course.

Occupational health promotion and prevention ILV

Lector: Univ.-Prof. Dr. Wilfried Datler, Mag.a Barbara Lehner, MA

1.5SWS
3ECTS

Lecture contents

Research shows the connection between health and, above all, the psychological stress experienced by the educational specialists in daycare centers (cf. Viernieckel, Voss 2012). The mental stress is related to the primary task of accompanying, educating and supporting the children and their families in the elementary education facility. The institutional challenges exist at all levels - specialist, management, organization and should be able to be recognized and reflected on with regard to mental health on the one hand. In this sense, the course takes a look at the institutional structures based on case material from one's own institution, so that the students are enabled on the one hand to do justice to the primary task of the institution and, on the other hand, preventively in terms of their (own) mental health (and those of employees) to take effect.
