Lecture contents

In this module, the students acquire an understanding of the conditions and objectives of ‘reflection' and collectively generate group rules for the formation of the module. Self-perception and external perception are addressed, and team and cooperation skills strengthened.
Furthermore, students acquire fundamental knowledge about selected social organisations i.e. relating to their history, goals, tasks, legal conditions, financial foundations, professional repertoire of methods, organisational structure and documentation. Current questions by selected institutions, as well as concrete practice experience are reflected, and related to theory and practice where appropriate. This is also done in preparation for a 4-week long work placement, which full time students complete at the beginning of the 2nd semester and relates to the practice orientation days for part time students in the 1st/2nd semester. Questions about reconciling studies, work placement and professional motivation are discussed. The different roles of work placement managers and interns are discussed and explained.

Lecture contents

Through a continuous exchange in a fixed reflection group, the individual and group-specific topics which are relevant for Social Work, as well as interest-based questions are elaborated.
The seminary content is oriented toward the topics, which are actively introduced by the group members. As is necessary and according to interests, topical emphasis can be picked up and deepened. Strengthening and allowing the individual responsibility and initiative of the group members is of central importance here.

Lecture contents

During their work placement the continuous reflection and analysis of this in-depth and personal experience in individual and group settings, are central. The integration of personal experiences and exchange in the seminar group deepen the professional understanding and offer a contribution toward their professional identity. The students learn to apply themselves to a team, organisational structure, case analysis, theoretical and conceptual basics of social institutions, as well as their respective methodological intervention.
Prior to the work placement, the preparation and detailed planning of this part of the degree takes place. Specific topical emphases, which are relevant for the field, are addressed. Furthermore, the students engage with their individual learning objectives and define their professional goals.

Lecture contents

Historical and current approaches to working in the educational sector are conveyed to the students, as well as accompanying adults with training measures. Based on this, the students learn about selected methods of Social Work, main features of work and educational counselling, special coaching and counselling requirements for professionally oriented work with recipients, relatives and groups. Through case study examples, methodological intervention relating to target group specific and target group overlapping Social Work is reflected, in order to understand the relationship between professional principles and the application of interview techniques.
Emphasis school Social Work:
In this module, the students receive an overview of the models, operational ranges and offers of school Social Work. Building on the module ‘Social Work and education', this course offers the students in-depth engagement with the structure, organisation and dynamic of the school and educational system, with relevant concerned persons and effective, possible or necessary offers of support. With a special focus on children and youth, the school is analysed as a socialisation factor and life-world, and an intercultural understanding for it is fostered. Methodological offers and mandates such as individual cases, group work, in-school and out-of-school networking, substantiate the possibilities for intervention. Through case study examples, situational analysis, intervention mandates and approaches are put in concrete terms.
