Testimonial: Daniel Dulle (University College of Teacher Education)

IMG_0751

Dani­el Dul­le is stu­dy­ing the tea­cher-trai­ning pro­gram for beco­m­ing an ele­men­ta­ry school tea­cher at the Uni­ver­si­ty Col­le­ge of Tea­cher Edu­ca­ti­on Sty­ria.

Why are you studying the teacher-training program for becoming an elementary school teacher?

I love inte­res­ting and chal­len­ging tasks and the­se are tasks, tea­chers have to face every day. No pupil is com­pa­ra­ble to ano­t­her and for ever­y­bo­dy the mate­ri­al has to be pre­pa­red accord­in­gly. Also the desi­re to learn and the natu­ral urge of child­ren to gain know­ledge should be awa­ke­ned or sustai­ned in school. This pre­ten­se deman­ds ne wand crea­ti­ve solu­ti­ons and didac­tical know-how. I think that I con­ti­nuous­ly learn some­thing new in this job and I am able to deve­lop mys­elf. That is exact­ly why this care­er choice is right for me.

How did you learn about this study program?

Through my work at the child­ren muse­um Graz „FRi­da & freD“ I lear­ned that I enjoy com­mu­ni­ca­ting know­ledge to kids and teen­agers and that I am able to arou­se enthu­si­asm wit­hin pupils for a topic. After having thought about it some time and encou­ra­ge­ment by my pri­va­te sur­roun­dings I regis­te­red for the admis­si­on pro­ce­du­re.

What do you especially like about your studies?

You start to gain les­son prac­tice from the first semes­ter onwards and so you can find out soon, if you are made for beco­m­ing a tea­cher. In addi­ti­on, the­re are nume­rous addi­tio­nal offers, which allow you to focus on your own inte­rests.

What makes your university unique?

The dif­fe­ren­tia­ti­on and advan­ce­ment of indi­vi­du­al strengths are not only seen as con­tents, which have to be con­vey­ed, but are also lived. So every stu­dent is able to unfold his or her own strengths and deve­lop them. In a plea­sant an moti­va­tio­nal atmo­s­phe­re nume­rous crea­ti­ve ide­as deve­lop, which can be tested in the les­son prac­tice.

You should become a teacher?

I think, espe­ci­al­ly peop­le, who love to work with kids and teen­agers should think about beco­m­ing a tea­cher. Of cour­se, your own approach towards the topic of learning is of high impor­t­an­ce becau­se only if I have a posi­ti­ve approach towards the topic I can moti­va­te pupils to learn. In addi­ti­on, a high degree of fle­xi­bi­li­ty is nee­ded becau­se in school life, unex­pec­ted chan­ge of plans is very com­mon.

Have you alre­ady taken classes/courses at other Styrian uni­ver­si­ties or par­ti­ci­pa­ted in col­la­bo­ra­tive projects?

Until now I have not taken any clas­ses at other uni­ver­si­ties. But I had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to par­ti­ci­pa­te in an inter­na­tio­nal pro­ject with edu­ca­ti­on-coope­ra­ti­on-part­ners of the Uni­ver­si­ty Col­le­ge of Tea­cher Edu­ca­ti­on Sty­ria.

Why are so many young people drawn to Sty­ria for their stu­dies? What is so spe­cial about this uni­ver­sity location?

I think that Sty­ria is a very attrac­tive loca­ti­on for stu­dents becau­se it offers nume­rous fiel­ds of stu­dy at dif­fe­rent uni­ver­si­ties. Also the Sty­ri­an infra­st­ruc­tu­re offers ide­al living con­di­ti­ons for young peop­le. So the­re are not only gre­at pos­si­bi­li­ties for stu­dy­ing but you also have the oppor­tu­ni­ty to get a part time job and Sty­ria offers a gre­at amount of cul­tu­re and free time activi­ties.
