Seminar C: Selected Concepts

In this seminar, we will jointly address early childhood education concepts for dealing with heterogeneity in early education and care institutions. After a theoretical introduction to the approaches of co-construction, anti-bias and doing-gender, students can focus on and develop selected concepts for dealing with heterogeneity under their own focus and constant supervision by the lecturers. The idea of the teaching-learning concept intertwines scientific theories/knowledge with early childhood education practice. The willingness of the participants to work independently and on their own responsibility (in groups) and to engage in self-reflective, biographical analysis is fundamental.
