In the LV we deal in particular with the following content: - theoretical basis (f.e.: relationship between education/care and ethics / ethics as a field of education / ethics in training and further education etc.) - Critical analysis of the social handling of value pluralism & the importance of social handling of value pluralism for the field of elementary education - ethical concepts: Getting to know and comparing various "ethics concepts" that guide action - Reflection on practice: Reflection on one's own values ​​and normsAssessment methodsFinal exam * Committed participation and active work within the discussions, including in-depth preparation (text reading and editing as well as research) in self-study: 20% (= 2 out of 10 points) * Final Thesis on practical and professional ethical aspects: 80% (= 8 out of 10 points) 1: 10 – 9,5 Points 2: 9 - 8,5 Points 3: 8 - 7 Points 4: 6,5 - 6 Points 5: under 6 PointsTeaching methodsimpulse presentations by the course leader; small group work, short presentations, text study and research work on the part of the studentsLanguageGerman> Qualitative and quantitative methods of data colle… Social Management in Early Education and Care moreQualitative and quantitative methods of data collection ILVLector: Dipl.-Rehapsych.

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.Assessment methodsContinuous assessment Part 1: Research on a selected transition (individual work): 3 points Part 2: Knowledge test (individual work): 3 points Part 3: Case processing (individual work): 4 pointsTeaching methodspresentatione, individual work, group work, text study, practice reflectionLanguageGerman> Qualitative and quantitative methods of data analy… Social Management in Early Education and Care moreQualitative and quantitative methods of data analysis ILVLector: Dipl.-Rehapsych.
