In September 2017 the department of didactics of biology at the Martin-Luther-University Halle-Wittenberg invites to the 21. Conference of FDdB , which will stand under the headline of 'Biology Didactics as a Science' and will take place in Halle (Saale). With that we combine past and present on the occasion of the anniversary of our foundation, since the topic was also the focus of the first conference in 1977.

The city, which owes its name to its history of salt production, is not only known for Handel, Halloren and chemical industry. Science also has a long tradition in Halle. With more than 500 years of history the MLU is one of the oldest universities in Germany. Today it teaches more than 20.000 students in a variety of scientific disciplines. Halle also was a centre for the development of social humanistic education in the late 17th century, based on life and learning in the “Franckesche Stiftungen”, which still are a centre of learning for pupils and (future) teachers alike.

Halle is a location for numerous research institutes, e.g. Fraunhofer-Institute, Leibniz-Institute, Max Planck Society and Helmholtz-Zentrum to name only a few.  This makes Halle an important scientific centre in Germany. Halle is also the site of the Leopoldina, the world’s oldest continuously existing academy for medicine and the natural sciences.

The department of didactics of biology at the university prepares future teachers for their profession. A central element of this is an emphasis on competence orientation. In remodelling the module structure of the course this was implemented in lectures, seminars and practical trainings, based on the national requirements concerning the standards for teacher training. A high amount of teaching is related to real-life conditions, continuing the traditional way of teaching at East-German universities, which also served as a role model for universities in Western Germany. Focus of the local didactic interest are MINT education and outdoor-education, the latter of which is also enforced by the fact that the departments of didactics of biology and geography share an interdisciplinary professorship.

The conference will take place in the Melanchtonianum, Universitätsplatz 9, 06108 Halle (Saale).
