Transitions and continuity in educational pathways SE

Lector: Mag.a Dr.in Maria Fürstaller

1.5SWS
3ECTS

Lecture contents

Transitions or transitions represent significant biographical phases in the curriculum vitae. In the elementary pedagogical context, the transition from family to non-family care, from day nursery to kindergarten and from kindergarten to primary school is of particular interest. The courses deal with the specific challenges associated with these three transitions. The main focus of the course is on psychoanalytical-pedagogical approaches to transitions.
- In connection with this, an overview of the various methodological and theoretical approaches to transitional research is developed in order to be able to work out the central findings on the question of the importance of transitions for early development and educational processes.
- A deepening takes place through the examination of exemplary educational biographies and various factors that can influence the course of transitions (e.g. structural aspects of educational institutions, family-cultural aspects, relationship biographies, etc.).
- In the course students get to know different models of transition support.
