(general competences)

  • demonstrate understanding and application of curriculum theories and basic didactic principles,
  • analyse, synthesise and envisage solutions to technical and didactic problems,
  • integrate contents in an interdisciplinary manner,
  • apply knowledge in practice for the resolution of various problems,
  • think creatively and encourage creative thinking in students,
  • demonstrate a research approach and problem-solving orientation and responsibly direct own professional development in the process of lifelong learning,
  • work creatively and autonomously,
  • demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the development processes, differences and needs of individuals or groups,
  • demonstrate knowledge and understanding of diversity and multiculturalism and observe the principle of non-discrimination in work,
  • use a research approach both in the discipline and in education,
  • use ICT in teaching and other professional work and develop information literacy in students,
  • conduct technical dialogue, participate in international projects and design and manage projects,
  • reflect on and evaluate the results of own work,
  • demonstrate good knowledge of own profession and regulations governing the work of schools,

(subject-specific competences)

  • apply the approaches of scientific thinking to the quantitative treatment of problems in nature, the environment and society,
  • provide adequate technical literacy to students in the field of education in physics,
  • demonstrate knowledge and application of established physics terminology,
  • demonstrate professional proficiency in the syllabuses, contents and concepts of secondary, vocational and elementary subjects with physics content in order to create learning conditions that enable students to build high-quality knowledge (durability, transferability, integrity),
  • demonstrate the highest level of proficiency in the specific organisational forms of teaching science subjects: demonstration experiments and mass experiments during lessons, design of project days, leading study circles, mentoring research projects, cross-curricular planning and implementation of lessons, and research,
  • demonstrate an excellent capacity to evaluate, select and use existing learning materials, teaching aids and ICT in the teaching of physics,
  • use innovative approaches to physics learning,
  • demonstrate knowledge of contemporary achievements and trends in the teaching of physics and the possibility of incorporating these into lessons,
  • organise and lead education in the field of physics and natural sciences.

Third-cycle doctoral study programmes (SQF level 10)

-

Students must complete all requirements defined by the study programme in order to complete their studies.

-

Examination performance is scored as follows: 10 (excellent); 9 (very good: above-average knowledge but with some mistakes); 8 (very good: solid results); 7 (good); 6 (adequate: knowledge satisfies minimum criteria); 5–1 (inadequate). In order to pass an examination, a candidate must achieve a grade between adequate (6) and excellent (10). 
In order to progress to the second year, students must complete at least 26 ECTS credits and complete all laboratory exercise requirements. The subjects completed must include Didactics of physics I and Practical training for teaching physics I. In order to progress to a higher year, students must also meet the conditions envisaged by the other selected two-subject study programme.
Students must complete all requirements defined by the study programme in order to complete their studies.

-

  • A completed first-cycle study programme consisting of at least 180 credits in the field of physics for education; or
  • a completed first-cycle study programme consisting of at least 180 ECTS credits in the field of physics, if prior to enrolment the candidate has completed course units essential for further study, totalling 14 ECTS credits; or
  • a completed first-cycle study programme consisting of at least 180 ECTS credits from a scientific, mathematical, computer science or technical field, if prior to enrolment the candidate has completed the course units that are essential for further study. These course units consist of 21 ECTS credits, which candidates obtain by sitting differential examinations; or
  • a completed professional higher education programme in the field of physics education, adopted before 11 June 2004; or
  • a completed professional higher education programme in a scientific, mathematical, computer science or technical field adopted before 11 June 2004, if prior to enrolment the candidate has completed the course units that are essential for further study. These course units consist of 21 ECTS credits, which candidates obtain by sitting differential examinations.
