2. Objectives (expected learning outcomes)
The final competences are derived from the so-called basic competences of a teacher in secondary school as described by the Flemish Government (see http://www.ond.vlaanderen.be/nieuws/2007p/files/0420-bijlage4.pdf). The basic competences focused on during the initiation phase of the in-school training belong to the following socalled functional domains:
- The teacher as a monitor of developmental and learning processes;
- The teacher as an expert in his field;
- The teacher as an organiser.
- The teacher as an innovator - the teacher as a researcher
- The teacher as member of a school team
Attitudes that are given priority are critical disposition, inquisitiveness, organisational ability an cooperation.
3. Course content
In this course description the general principles are outlined. Further details can be found in the course guide Wegwijzer Vakdidactische Opdrachtenstage.
This part of the in-school training focusses on tasks of a teacher that are closely related to teaching: making a test, analysing a school book, ... Hence, this module supplements the modules of the in-school training that are oriented directly to the teaching itself.

In the internship schools themselves the organisation is supervised by the mentor-coaches and in particular the mentors. The didactics professors and the assistants follow up the progress of the training. Students can ask the didactician/assistant or the mentor advice about the in-school training. All organisational matters are the responsibility of the SLO coordinator.
