Responsibilities

 

The staff at the Teacher Training Center are contact persons for students pursuing teacher training degrees at RWTH, and they also work with instructors and advisors involved in teacher training, offering a comprehensive range of advice and support. The LBZ office works with the various faculties and departments engaged in teacher training through subject-specific courses and didactics or general education sciences courses. It also collaborates with non-university partners to organize, coordinate, and further develop RWTH’s teacher training programs.
