 BSP-17.1 Seminar: Fields of Social Work and Childhood Pedagogy
In-depth insights into selected fields of social work or childhood pedagogy. On the basis of a selected field of work, students will deepen their knowledge about the conceptual structure of their selected field, the legal framework and the corresponding didactic and methodological concepts. Students will study the respective problems and life situations of the respective target group from their selected field of work in detail. Students will analytically apply the social framework conditions that shape their selected field of work (e.g. law, politics, etc.). They will reflect on the role and duties of the specialists in their selected field of work and integrate these considerations into their concepts.

The fourth part of the seminar focuses on Book II of the German Social Code (basic security for job seekers), which affects almost all aspects of "Social Work and Early Childhood", as well as on topics from Book III of the German Social Code which are relevant for practitioner in the above mentioned fields.
