Dieser Band dokumentiert eine Reihe von Beiträgen der XIX. Internationalen wissenschaftlichen Konferenz Bildungsreform und Lehrerausbildung zum Thema Bildungswissenschaft auf der Suche nach globaler Identität, die vom Ministerium für Bildung und Wissenschaft der Republik Litauen, der Litauischen Universität für Bildungswissenschaften in Vilnius und der Pädagogischen Hochschule Heidelberg – University of Education gemeinsam konzipiert und veranstaltet wurde. Das Hauptthema der Konferenz waren Bildungs- und Qualitätsstandards der Hochschul- und Schulbildung. Dieses Qualitätsmanagement setzt somit den Erwerb interaktiver Kompetenzen im Bildungs-, Erziehungs- und Sozialisationsbereich voraus, gewissermaßen als innere Kräfte für Basiskompetenzen, die im Hinblick auf die Herausforderungen der Gesellschaft des kommenden Jahrzehnts die Befähigung zu Identität ermöglichen.

Towards global identities: internationalization of teacher training at the Heidelberg University of Education

Extract



Henrike Schön, Anne Sliwka

Abstract

The article offers an insight into the complex problem area of strategic internationalization of teacher education as exemplified by the experience of the Heidelberg University of Education. This paper discusses three major issues: the state of the debate regarding internationalization, the obstacles and difficulties which counteract that implementation as well as the major forces driving it’s implementation. This discussion highlights the difficult relationship between the demands of globalization and diversity in school life on the one hand and the yet to be established curricula for the internationalization of teacher training as a criteria of quality on the other hand. Finally, several aspects of the internationalization strategy of the Heidelberg University of Education are presented, from which the authors expect major advances in the training of teachers. The goal of teacher education must strive to sensitize teachers in the 21st century to adopt” global identities” and empower them to become cross-culturally competent to communicate and to act.
