Vocational Specialisation Information Technology
The vocational specialisation Information Technology forms part of the degree course "Master of Vocational Education/Lehramt an beruflichen Schulen" (industrial technical sciences). In this course, students can develop their occupational scientific and technical knowledge and didactic skills required (e.g. planning, implementing and evaluating learning processes) for their future occupation as teachers at vocational schools or working in the area of vocational education and training and advanced training. Students can attend project-based seminars to learn about a broad range of methods of teaching by way of higher education didactic training. Based on an analysis of the vocational and working worlds within the IT sector and its current changes, it is possible to lay down requirements for the design of skill-oriented training/learning arrangements and to examine those critically.
In the vocational specialisation Information Technology biat therefore carries out research and provides training on the historical and current developments in vocational work as well as in vocational training and advanced training in IT professions. This means that biat is involved in the nationwide processes of didactic evaluation and the redesign of syllabuses in a scientific capacity. European and international cooperations, together with studies in the field of Information Technology, supplements and thereby further findings and thus also enrich teaching and study projects in the professional specialisation of Information Technology.
