Launch of the ELMaWi-Transfer project

September 14th, 2020

Promotion of subject-specific competencies in prospective teachers of mathematics and economics. Kick-off meeting for the BMBF project ELMaWi-Transfer at the IPN

A kick-off meeting at the IPN in Kiel marks the start of the ELMaWi-Transfer project funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The project managers Prof. Aiso Heinze (IPN Kiel), Prof. Anke Lindmeier (FSU Jena), Prof. Olga Zlatkin-Troitschanskaia and Dr. Christiane Kuhn (both JGU Mainz) welcome members from the network and practice locations of the universities of Kiel, Lüneburg, Magdeburg and Mainz.

The aim of the joint project ELMaWi-Transfer, coordinated by the IPN Kiel, is to promote action-oriented, subject-specific skills in student teachers. The project will provide an online teaching-learning environment that can be used to promote and test practical skills of student teachers in mathematics and economics. The online teaching-learning environment is implemented in courses at the universities of Kiel, Lüneburg, Magdeburg and Mainz. The evaluation of the transfer success focuses not only on practical aspects but also on the learning effectiveness.

The online teaching-learning environment is based on the findings on subject-specific competencies among (prospective) teachers from the predecessor project ElMaWi, which was funded by the BMBF's KoKoHs program. The project showed that the competencies of teachers in mathematics and economics are based on their professional knowledge, but have an independent character. In the future, customized learning opportunities should make it even easier to develop action competence in the subject at the university. The kick-off meeting will focus on clarifying the organizational and content-related key points. The first learning opportunities will already be implemented in the 2021 summer semester and will be made available for use at other locations in the following semesters.
