PRESSESHOW - an approach for up-to-date content in lectures

In university courses, technical content is usually deepened through exercises and internships. The internships are often introduced through experiment instructions and carried out by a supervisor. In this didactic scenario, teachers often ask themselves how to address the simplest learning target levels, remembering, understanding and applying - which contribute to meaningless timpani in many Bachelor's degree programs - and how to address the higher learning target levels such as analyzing, evaluating and generating (Kergel & Heidkamp, ​​2016, p . 265) while at the same time activating and motivating the students. In this article, a supplement to a classic exercise based on the principles of reflected and problem-oriented learning is presented (see Hilzensauer, 2008) and classified against the background of pedagogical-psychological foundations (self-concept and personal attitudes). In the following a didactic scenario is presented, which is called "press show". The peculiarity of this method lies in the integration of a daily problem, which is received in the media, into the face-to-face event. This opens up a field of application for self-directed and social learning. The methodology presented can, for example, be integrated into the practical part at an inverted classroom event.
