Education

One must accomplish two things when earning a PhD. First one must understand a particular subject thoroughly. Secondly, one must extensively in knowledge about that subject.

Teaching can be very frustrating if you do not advance your education skills and knowledge to doctorate level. This will enable you to understand the concepts better and deliver quality content to your students. It will also enable you to understand the student's behavior well.

Doctorates in Education in Hradec Králové in Czech Republic. Study the PhD Physics, with a focus on education at UHK! Doctoral program Physics – Didactics of Physics provides the opportunity for university educated professionals in the field of physical education to deepen their knowledge and training in fields they encounter in their professional and scientific activities. Students gain higher competences for inventiveness in solving problems associated with the transfer of physical knowledge, especially in the context of interpretation in the education of children, youth, and adults. Specifics of this doctoral program are: the influence of teaching physics history, transfer of scientific knowledge into teaching physics - especially in secondary schools, development of physical thinking of pupils and physical problem solving by them, enhancement of creativity in the classroom and in extracurricular activities, educational and psychological problems associated with teaching physics at the middle and elementary school, the impact of computer technology in teaching physics, the use of interdisciplinary relations, etc. Applicant Profile: Graduates of master programs Physics Teacher Training for Lower and Upper Secondary School or graduates of the master study program Physics and programs relatives who have completed additional pedagogical studies or otherwise obtain a teaching qualification in accordance with applicable regulations. Entrance Exam: Applicant’s level of knowledge and its depth, prerequisites for his/her independent creative scientific work in the field of Physics Didactics is verified by the interview. The applicant shall submit a brief plan of his/her intended dissertation project and provides proof of any previous professional and publications. Absolvent profile: Graduate of doctoral study Didactics of Physics is qualified for individual scientific work and is able to creatively solve problems arising in connection with the teaching of physics, ie. with the transfer of physical knowledge. They are capable to use scientific methodology of physics and appropriate general didactic interpretations to solve fundamental problems associated with teaching at primary and secondary schools, alternatively at high schools and teacher training in physics.

Doctoral Study on Chemistry Didactics is the culmination of the three-tier university education. Is a targeted grounding in research activities focused on teaching and learning chemistry, which is based on deepening the knowledge of the chemistry didactics and of the relevant area of chemistry, pedagogy, psychology, computer science and other disciplines, to learn the methods of scientific work in the mentioned fields and will significantly contribute to a comprehensive improvement of the work of chemistry teachers at various levels of the education system, experts on curriculum creation and its evaluation in accordance with current scientific knowledge and research. Branch includes a range of topics, e.g. the transformation of scientific knowledge of chemistry processes into chemistry teaching and learning, research and development of school chemical experiments, ICT applications in chemical education, environmental and toxicological aspects of chemistry education etc. Mandatory part of the study relates to the acquisition of deep knowledge of chemistry didactics (educational theory and practice in chemistry), selected areas of specialized chemistry and pedagogical methodology and especially chemistry didactic research. Individual study plan allows getting more specific knowledge and skills, in particular through elective courses. Applicant Profile Graduates of master programs Chemistry Teacher Training for Lower and Upper Secondary School, or graduates of the master study program Chemistry, and programs relatives who have completed additional pedagogical studies or otherwise obtain a teaching qualification in accordance with applicable regulations. Entrance Exam By the interview is verified applicant’s level of knowledge, the depth of his theoretical knowledge, prerequisites for independent creative scientific work in the field Chemistry Didactics. The applicant shall submit a brief plan of his dissertation project and provides proof of any previous professional experience and publications. The admission interview will verify the knowledge of a foreign language (English, German or Russian). Absolvent Profile Graduates of doctoral study Chemistry Didactics have extensive knowledge of the complex usable in teaching, scientific research and management activities in the field of general and vocational chemical education. They are able to creatively solve problems in education; they are able to design and implement research, especially in the field of chemical education. Graduated can work as highly skilled university departments engages with the professional training of chemistry teachers (and other science subjects), i.e. at the departments of chemistry and the departments of chemical education (natural sciences education), research institutes and organizational-administrative institutions dealing with general and specialized chemical education, adequate workplace at decision sphere (methodologies further training chemistry teachers, staff, school inspection, managers at different levels of education), national and international institutions and organizations focused on research in general and specialized chemical (science) education. Graduates can also work in publishing, focusing on the production of textbooks and companies oriented to the development and teaching aids. Doctoral studies represent a significant shift in the qualification of teachers of the secondary schools, where the teaching of chemistry is a general-education courses, but also in vocational schools, where the teaching of chemistry as professional courses. Obtaining research and teaching qualifications Ph.D. becomes the default position for further professional growth (e.g. assoc. professor and full professor procedures).
