For this workshop, Dr. Erkan Gürsoy, project manager of “ProDaZ: German as a Second Language in all Subjects” at the University of Duisburg-Essen, delivered a lecture on “Subject-Oriented Language Education: Irritating Research Findings and Concrete Examples from Practice” discussing concepts of supporting linguistic competencies in high-school subjects and sharing how his many years of experience at the University could be applied to Tübingen’s teacher education program.
Following the talk, the University of Tübingen’s newest additional qualification, “Language Coaching for High School Subjects” was celebrated in Room 027. The qualification was supported by the Doners’ Association (Stifterverband). Prof. Dr. Doreen Bryant and Junior Professor Dr. Kristina Peuschel successfully took part in the announcement of “Strengthening Language Acquisition – Teacher Candidates Gain:” 40 dedicated teacher candidates were trained in both practice and theory to accompany children and young adults on their educational path, assisting both in language development and subject-specific content. Furthermore, by virtue of this new additional qualification, the University of Tübingen has now been integrated into the newly-emerging network “Strong through Diversity – Fostering Intercultural Competencies in Teacher Education” and will contribute to accompanying research into the concept of Culturally Responsive Teaching.
