Overview Research and Projects in School Pedagogy


In our research projects, we focus on questions concerning the quality of teacher training and the design of teaching-learning processes.

Our goal is practical research and teaching in current school-relevant areas. Therefore, we draw on our network of school and educational actors within and outside Germany.

We regularly offer cooperation in our projects, for example as part of a doctorate or thesis (Bachelor/Master) or as a student assistant.

For schools and teachers or persons in school-relevant fields, there is also the possibility to cooperate with us, for example: via a teaching assignment in school and lesson development in an interdisciplinary project group.
