The subject is cocentrated on gaining practical skills and experience to conduct teaching chemistry, namely to work with models (micro- and/or macrosystems), to use macrotechnical and/or projected microtechnical demonstration experiment and pupil's experiment and to organize class in practical methods of teaching.
Aim of the course -
Last update: TAJ832 (20.11.2013)

Students will be able to:

use the various types of molecular models in teaching,

prepare and present a macrotechnical and/or a projected microtechnical demonstration experiment,

project pupil's experiment inclusive of working manual with the accent on safety and efficiency,

prepare and organize the laboratory training at high schools.
