Submission deadline until midnight 28 Feb 2022

What will you learn?

  • to develop occupational knowledge and skills (with an emphasis on both inanimate nature and botanical-zoological-ecological and anthropological focus) that graduates can use in practice, especially in the next follow-up master's degree program;
  • Establish skills and attitudes leading to further higher education of biological and geological disciplines and lifelong STEM education;
  • the ability to reflect the process of education and training in nature-oriented institutions;
  • Self-reflection skill as a naturalist lecturer.

The graduate of the study program Nature Science with a focus on education is a qualified professional ready to practice as a teacher assistant who during the bachelor study gained the corresponding professional competencies that we perceive as a set of professional knowledge, skills, attitudes, experience, values and personality characteristics that are manifested in selected professional activities.

Practical training

Practice forms a coherent system of successive subjects. Bachelor's degree programs are assistant practice - tutoring 1 (2 credits), assistant practice - tutoring 2 (2 credits); Assistant Practice - Assistant Teacher 1 (2 credits), Assistant Practice - Assistant Teacher 2 (2 credits), Assistant Practice - Assistant Teacher 3 (2 credits). The student enrolls in the third, fourth and fifth semester of study. In the third and fourth semesters the following courses are connected with self-study preparation for the profession 1 (2 credits) and self-study preparation for the profession 2 (2 credits), in which the students of the assistant practice reflect. The aim of assistive practice is to acquire the necessary skills in the individual work with the pupil outside the process of teaching (tutoring at school or in the families of children) and on the other hand when working with a class teacher during the classroom. The aim of the related subjects is to share and reflect the experience of the practice.
