Teletutoring in teacher training



Teletutoring in teacher training

  • Teachers of all school types in Bavaria are obliged to take further training measures. They are intended to intensify the job-related as well as pedagogical skills of teachers.
  • Future training methods for teachers not only comprise in-class lectures but also Live E-learning seminars.
  • Such E-learning seminars are conducted by so-called teletutors who are teachers having a specific qualification in passing on their knowledge and supporting students during Live E-learning.
  • The goal of the project “Teletutoring in teacher training” consists in qualifying teachers to become teletutors.
  • Such training measures for teachers who want to train as teletutors are carried out by the Academy for Teacher Training and Personnel Management (Akademie für Lehrerfortbildung und Personalführung) at Dillingen and are held in “virtual classrooms”.
  • In virtual classrooms the students and their teacher are at different places at the same time. They communicate via the Internet without any time delay. Virtual classrooms are thus online-based environments for synchronous learning processes.
