Competencies for dealing with heterogeneity
To capture conceptual and procedural knowledge, we are developing a knowledge test for prospective teachers that addresses different dimensions of heterogeneity in the school context. This test will also be validated for teachers in preparatory service and in school practice.

Reverse mentoring as a method to support the professional competence of teachers
ReMento’s goal is to develop, test and evaluate the didactic method of reverse mentoring in order to build up knowledge about the use of digital media in the classroom and the convictions of students and teachers that are conducive to this. Reverse mentoring reverses the traditional mentoring structures: student teachers who are more familiar with digital media due to their significantly increased use of digital media pass on their knowledge and experience with digital media to experienced teachers; teachers, in turn, share their didactic-methodological expertise with students who are less experienced in teaching practice and subject didactics. Together, both target groups are to develop ideas for the meaningful use of digital media in the classroom and thus lay the foundations for closing the respective skills gaps.
