Professionalisierung des Unterrichts durch Motivierung der Schüler und Verbesserung der Lehrer-Schüler-Interaktion
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

This Erasmus + programme focuses on teacher training courses in GB and France. The main purpose is to improve the quality of the foreign language lessons, for our school this means English and French. Two aspects are particularly important and also linked with each other: motivation of the students and the personality of the teacher. In the field of motivation, participants will be provided with insight on motivation research, the role of group processes and the learning environment and find out how to design motivating tasks. Teaching effectively means motivating students and making them feel at ease, but it takes also a teacher who has certain techniques and strategies in order to manage difficult situations, challenging students and other stress factors. This will allow them to stay calm and resourceful and therefore effective. Concepts to manage stress and to stay mindful will be integrated. The training will allow the participants to reflect on their behaviour as teachers and if necessary modify their strategies in order to bring their teaching abilities and their students' achievement to perfection. The planned trainings include theory, but also practical models and techniques that can be transferred to the students. A teacher who is able to cope with stress is also a competent role model for their students. Through the learned models and techniques from positive psychology the teachers can also help their learners to promote wellbeing. The programme is designed for 4 teachers who will attend 2-week training courses in GB/France. All our language teachers are qualified and have been teaching students aged from 10 to 18 for many years (forms 5 to 13). They consider attending training courses and communicating abroad regularly as an essential aspect for all language teachers and are keen to gain new insight. In the long run, we are planning to send all our language teachers abroad in order to acquire competence in the fields mentioned. Teachers from other fields are encouraged to apply for Erasmus+ activities in order to develop the quality of their teaching. International projects with other participants in the courses are strongly encouraged.
