Teacher studies - combining studies in two subjects and pedagogy, where many of the courses are not exclusively taught to teacher students - pose motivational difficulties, especially so in the first semesters. MINT-L4@RWTH seeks to offer additional measures specifically designed for STEM teacher students, enhancing their study experience concerning the aspects of self-determination, social integration and competence. A similar goal is to make the appreciation of teacher students more visible and experienceable, for the students themselves as well as for the subjects' lecturers.
