At the Chair of Education with a focus on Diversity Research and Educational Spaces in Middle Childhood, the transfer of knowledge between research and teaching is international, across all levels and multi-perspective.
The relationship between theory and practice is reflected in curricular teaching cooperations with (external) school experts (e.g. from architecture, cultural studies or social pedagogy) and made fruitful for educational professionalization processes.
This chair combines epistemological work with empirical research in the following areas:
- Professionalization of Teacher Education
- Diverisity and Inclusive Gifted Education
- Education and Spatial Research
- Internationalization of Teacher Education

In the winter semester 2023/24, student teachers can attend an inter-university online lecture series on global developments in teacher education. Lecturers from Germany and abroad will highlight challenges in teacher education and pedagogical approaches in different countries of the world.
The lecture series is a result of the cooperation of four Bavarian universities implementing projects on internationalisation of teacher education in the programme "Lehramt.international" of General Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
In 2021, the projects BaTEG (Otto-Friedrich-University Bamberg), FAU Lehramt International (Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg), global.trex Passau (University of Passau) and GoTEd (Julius-Maximilians University of Würzburg) joined forces and formed a network to promote the exchange of best practices and joint initiatives with the aim of improving the framework conditions for the internationalisation of tecaher education in Bavaria.
