Between tradition and change Educational Research at the UDE
Education-related research at the UDE builds up on a long and successful tradition and has developed to be a central task of the University in the region and country. Lecture and research in this field have a correspondingly high social relevance, not least with regard to the competences of future student generations. The investigation and understanding of educational processes, educational results and the influencing factors therefore stand in a special scientific and social context, the impact of which becomes clear by the funding policy.
In a region very strongly affected by structural changes, the evidence-based further development of ecuational approaches conducive to development and learning under consideration of specific social conditions is of special importance. The differentiated observance of these complex interrelationships takes place at the UDE in an experienced academic environment. The UDE has one of the largest Faculties of Education in Germany and an especially extensive and diversified teaching methodology.
Thus, the IZfB is to offer the collegues who work on the subject with different theoretical and methodological approaches in various faculties and institutions of the UDE a widespread, coordinating and supportive frame for intensive exchange processes and new common research networks.
