YLAB, School Laboratory for the Humanities Opened

On 24 October 2014, the Education Minister from Lower-Saxony, Frauke Heilgenstadt, and the President of the University, Prof. Dr. Ulrike Beisiegel, opened the YLAB, the University's new school laboratory for the Humanities in Friedländer Weg. Henceforth, the laboratory makes it possible for pupils to actively and experimentally deal with topics of the Humanities in a stimulating learning environment (including a stage, colourful cushions and theatre props).

The YLAB is particularly interesting for student teachers, too: as a teaching-learning-laboratory, the YLAB offers students the opportunity to develop action-oriented lesson scenarios in the subjects English, French, Latin, German, History, and Religious Education, enabling them to put their ideas into practice with groups of pupils and thus to gain further practical teaching experience beyond the obligatory school internships.

  • Would you like to stage theatre plays in the English language with adolescents?

  • Do you find it thrilling to use production-oriented approaches to explore a literary text, e.g. by having pupils make their own films?

  • Would you be interested in extending your didactic knowledge hands on, e.g. by getting to know the approach of global simulation?

  • The Department of English Language Teaching, which was in control of the YLAB conceptualisation, offers several courses in cooperation with schools in Göttingen in the upcoming summer semester. Who knows, perhaps you will join one of them?
