At the Chair of Education/Primary and Pre-Primary Education the transfer of knowledge between research and teaching is international, throughout all stages and multi-perspective.
The relationship between theory and practice is reflected in an anchored curricular teaching cooperation with (external) school experts (e.g. from architecture, cultural studies or social pedagogy) and made fruitful for educational professionalization processes.
The chair combines epistemological work with empirical research in the following areas:
Professionalization of teacher training
Diversity and talent research
Education and space
Internationalization of teacher training
