Zielgruppen: Die Schülerinnen der oberen Klassenstufen (9 – 10 Klasse) in staatlichen Oberschulen

Zielgebiet- und Land: Punjab, Pakistan

Das Projekt der Einrichtung eines Nähraumes in der Mädchenschule  entstand in enger Abstimmung mit der Leitung unserer Partnerorganisation für den primären und sekundären Bildungsbereich in Punjab, Pakistan. Die Idee resultierte aus den Überlegungen, wie im Rahmen des gesetzten Budgets eine längerfristige Möglichkeit für die Schülerinnen geschaffen werden kann, auch innerhalb eines sehr konservativen Umfeldes, eine berufliche Perspektive, ein Einkommen und somit ein Stück Unabhängigkeit zu ermöglichen.

Target groups: The pupils of the upper grades (classes 9 – 10 ) in state secondary schools

Destination and country: Punjab, Pakistan

Recently, more and more snack bars and small restaurants have been established in the city. This is where our project starts in consultation with the school management. There is already a kitchen in the school, but it is not functional and therefore cannot be used. The pupils and teachers showed great interest in the modernization of this learning kitchen. Because the cook training at the school gives the pupils a well-founded knowledge that makes it easier for them to be employed or to become self-employed after graduation.

Teacher-Training Program

Target group: Teachers and pupils in state secondary schools

Destination and country: Punjab, Pakistan

The efforts of the Pakistani government to increase the completion rate of 10th grade pupils have resulted in a regulation whereby any school with a completion rate below 50% is subject to legal action. The school is obliged to prove that it has done its best to offer the pupils a solid education. To date, the state has not taken any concrete measures to reflect on and improve the teaching situation in order to identify, name and remedy structural problems in advance. Teachers lack the practical methods and the knowledge to reflect and counteract their own teaching methods accordingly in order to point out the deficits in the class which have a direct and indirect impact on learning behaviour and motivation. But in the 9th grade and especially in the 10th grade, the pupils are prepared for their entry into professional life. A solid basic education is indispensable for this. Within the framework of the described requirement, a course of further training is carried out for the school teachers.

Innovative Teaching Methods

Target group: University teachers at state-run universities

Destination and country: Punjab, Pakistan

Teaching methods in higher education are accelerated and need to be transformed with the development of science and technology progress. The traditional teaching methods in Pakistan require innovation in order to meet competency-based learning goals. Social Sciences disciplines have strong cross disciplinary background, so it is necessary to reflect on that background when new teaching method should be explored. Some of these factors will influence the way of teaching as meaningful as cultural traditions of learning and teaching that of course first of all have to be recognized by the project and will be an ongoing topic for the cooperation.

This Teacher-Training Programm will contribute to the impact on improving student learning in diverse settings at Pakistani institutes. It will also contribute to several other principles on expert knowledge and expertise, forms of prior or concurrent learning, the active engagement of students, and teachers’ feedback and quality from both sides. The conceptual framework for understanding how to capture ‘congruence’ between students’ academic learning and teachers’ ways of thinking and practicing is also drawn from this project. The researchers argue that high-quality undergraduate learning can be encapsulated through approaches to learning, ways of studying and ways of thinking and practicing in the subject.
