Social peace


The fundamentals and central resource of a modern knowledge society are learning and dealing with change. Transition phases (child - pupil and student - teacher) are networked in order to enable lifelong learning. This course aims to improve self-direction as a basis for lifelong learning. This means being a personal role model, promoting Socratic curiosity, imparting knowledge, developing skills, pointing out and initiating ways of acquiring knowledge independently, promoting potential and talents individually, facilitating individual learning paths, communicating cultural identity, promoting internationality, proactively assuming responsibility for education and upbringing, not avoiding social problems, working in a team-oriented and collegial manner, dealing with social changes and understanding the development of one’s own pedagogical activity as a professional mission. The in-depth examination of Europe has become an indispensable task of the Austrian school.
