First In-House Education Programme for Maths Teachers starting 2016/17
A new Master of Arts studies programme for teachers, who will train, upskill and advise other teachers in mathematics is planned to commence in Winter 2016/17. The nationwide offer is a cooperation between the tertiary consortium of the German Centre for Mathematics Teacher Education (DZLM), Leibniz-Institute for Science and Mathematics Education (IPN) Kiel, the Institute for Educational Development in Schools in Schleswig-Holstein (IQSH) and Kiel University. The degree course will be available throughout Germany in the form of blended learning.
This Masters programme is unique both to Germany and to Europe, where, to date, no systematic structures exist for the continuing education of teachers. Additionally, besides the related focus and the new target group, the cooperation between educational administration and science is also one of its kind in the world of education.
