Winterschool 2013


2003: The research group and the graduate school “Teaching and Learning of Science”, abbreviated as “nwu-essen”, were instituted by the German Research Foundation (DFG) at the University of Duisburg-Essen. In an interdisciplinary cooperation, experts from the fields of physics, chemistry and biology education, specialists in the psychology of learning and instruction, and educational scientists examined the problems of science education.  
Due to the expiration of the DFG grant’s maximum duration, the nwu-essen held a winter school for graduate students from February 12-14, 2013 in Essen.   The nwu winter school was a great opportunity for science education Ph.D. students to discuss the current state of their research und further planning of their dissertations.   In small groups consisting of not more than eight Ph.D. students and two or three experienced supervisors, each student gave a talk about their work’s current status.   This round also included the possibility to thoroughly discuss aims, designs, methods and results of the single projects.
