Athletic visit from Brazil Consultation on the curriculum for sports teacher training
Volleyball, dancing, gymnastics, psychomotricity—during Professor Marli Hatje’s visit to TU Braunschweig, the focus was clearly on sports. The researcher from the Federal University of Santa Maria in Brazil was a guest at the Institute of Sport Science and Movement Pedagogy for three weeks and learned about the curriculum in the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes for sports teacher training.
Professor Marli Hatje’s stay is part of a consultancy project to revise curricula for physical education teacher training in Santa Maria and other Brazilian universities. The project is led by retired Professor Reiner Hildebrandt-Stramann from the TU’s Institute of Sport Science and Movement Pedagogy and is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
The aim is, among other things, to develop a modularised curriculum including module manuals. This will make the study structure comparable in some modules and support the exchange of students and teachers from the Brazilian universities and the Institute of Sport Science and Movement Pedagogy.
Over the past few weeks, Professor Marli Hatje exchanged ideas with her colleagues from Braunschweig about the goals, modules, contents and the didactic and movement education concepts. In addition to gaining insights into the degree programme at TU Braunschweig, the researcher also visited a Braunschweig primary school.
