Pedagogical competencies

PhD Students


language of the event

One of the teachers' tasks is to acquaint the students with the basics of their discipline and its vocabulary. This task, however, may seem at odds with the popularization activities in teaching that often lead us to simplify. This raises the question: how can we popularise science in the classroom and teach specialist language simultaneously? In this session, we will explore together how to modify our vocabulary so that what we say is understandable, appealing, and at the same time, accurate and unbiased. The principles we uncover will then be practiced and reflected upon.


Mgr. Ingrid Procházková, Ph.D.

Manager and lecturer for the development of pedagogical competences


She is a university teacher and a member of the leadership of the Community of Educators of Future Teachers, responsible for the pedagogical and didactic training of future teachers at the Faculty of Arts at MU. She has done research on the quality of teaching and the preparation of quality teaching is one of her favourite topics to lecture on. She developed her teaching skills primarily in the non-profit organisation Brontosaurus Movement, where she ran children's and youth clubs and provided training for local organisers. When not mentoring future and current teachers, she writes about education and tends to the flora and fauna on her nature-friendly farm.

Karel Doleček


Karel got into pedagogy while studying teaching at PedF MU and studying pedagogy at FF MU. He continues to develop as a teacher through his ongoing cooperation with CERPEK and his lecturing activities. Professionally, he is primarily involved in facilitation. In the past, he was active in the organization Otevřeno, where he was involved in teacher education, and today he is a member of the organization NaZemi, where he is involved in critical pedagogy.
