Biology Didactics


Didactics of biology is the study of teaching and learning biological topics and competences. The department Botany/Cell Biology (Prof. Dr. Norbert Grotjohann) is engaged in the education of future teachers as well as in research activities in these fields. In our didactic seminars students gain important competences which enable them to work on current biological issues and their target-group oriented processing and teaching. The focus of our research activities is the selection of biological contents, their didactical processing and teaching as well as the theory-based development and empirical testing of teaching biology in both classroom settings and out-of-school contexts.
