Teacher Education, E-Learning & Teaching Support
Andreas Vaterlaus heads the physics-teacher education program (Lehrdiplom für Maturitätsschulen). In co-operation with the Chair for Research on Learning and Instruction (Institute of Behavioral Sciences at the Department of Humanities, Social and Political Sciences), he develops and evaluates new teaching and learning programs for secondary education. Furthermore, he is strongly involved in the modernization of physics teaching at school by developing new content resources and by training future teachers. Since October 2012, Andreas Vaterlaus is Vice-Rector for Curriculum Development.
Guillaume Schiltz, a member of the Vaterlaus group who was jointly appointed by the department and by the Academic Services, acts as an educational developer for the department. He supports and advises lecturers in teaching matters, directs discipline-specific courses for teaching assistants, and implements teaching innovations according to the strategic aims of the school board. Quality assurance and quality enhancement of teaching and learning are both achieved in agreement with the individual lecturers and aligned to the objectives of the department.
