Basic theoretical topics are spread of voluntary topics according to student's interest; every student prepares either one's presentation from pedagogy.

Students show their orientation in theoretical and applied pedagogy in the test from theoretical part. They also prepare a presentation of chosen topic from the area of general or applied pedagogy. In practices students do pedagogical training as an imitation of secondary school's teaching which is followed by analysis of mistakes. Summary evaluation of students consists of the testing of student's theoretical knowledge (50%), presentation (30%) and managing of teacher training (20%).
