component of teacher training and is therefore a cross-disciplinary task for all professorships associated with teacher training. Teacher training is
being improved, both in terms of quality and quantity, in the years leading up to 2020. This effort includes the establishment of 22 new professorships
and the annual enrollment of 1,000 students in the bachelor's program.
