English in Professional Socialization and Professional Culture

The project "English in Occupational Socialization and Professional Culture" aims at supporting students of the Bachelor's programs in Business Education and Social Education in English-language courses. The project focuses on the non-fit of students' specific educational biographies, institutional expectations of the university, and professional requirements of the teaching profession. It serves to develop and test a module "English in Occupational Socialization and Professional Culture." The module is offered on a mandatory basis in both degree programs (WiPäd and SoPäd) and includes 1 seminar (5 CPO). It includes (a) a scientific examination of professional educational biographies, social background and linguistic heterogeneities in schools in seminar format, (b) an accompanying consultation via an office hours format tailored to the requirements of English-language seminars, and (c) a methodical-practical group workshop embedded in the seminar for self-reflective examination of student experiences, scopes of action, and coping strategies.

The project is financed by the Ministry of Science and Culture with funding from the “Niedersächsisches Vorab”.
