Integrating ICT in education successfully requires teachers who are competent in using ICT in instruction. With the study at hand, a pre-service teacher course is developed including theoretical, empirical and practical approaches in order to analyze how the differentiated facets of pedagogical media competence can be fostered in teacher education.

Integrating ICT in education successfully requires teachers who are competent in using ICT in instruction in order to support learning processes, foster students’ ICT and media literacy and promote school development processes with regard to ICT. So far, teacher education in Germany scarcely allows for a systematical development of pedagogical media competence. Evaluations of existing concepts are even rarer.

With the study at hand, a pre-service teacher course is developed including theoretical, empirical and practical approaches in order to analyze how the differentiated facets of pedagogical media competence can be fostered in teacher education. Additionally to the pedagogical media competence framework, the internationally renowned concept of TPACK as well as the European framework DigCompEdu will be covered in the course.

Using a longitudinal design, students’ self-assessed  pedagogical media competence will be measured three times during the course of the semester: at the beginning, after both theoretical and empirical input sessions and last at the end of the course by means of an adapted and extended questionnaire. Furthermore, the pre-service teachers will be asked to maintain a portfolio in which drafts for ICT-based lessons are to be gathered. These drafts will be revised based on peer-feedback by the pre-service teachers and finally evaluated by means of a set of criteria by the course teacher. Complementary interviews conducted with small groups of pre-service teachers at the end of the course will reveal important insights concerning course design, knowledge acquisition and students’ self-assessments.

The portfolios and interviews analyzed by means of content analysis will supplement the quantitative data acquired in the surveys. Therefore, the study features a triangulative research design.

The study aims at revealing important insights and evidence with regard to the development of pedagogical media competence and shall serve as a basis for the linked integration of this domain in subject didactics and the second phase of teacher education.
