Research at Department of Teacher Education

Our skilled teacher educators conduct research and development work to increase knowledge about the hallmarks of quality in schools and in education. Our research takes place in strong academic communities and research groups with a clear profile in relevant disciplines. We have a particular responsibility for research in teacher education, which includes profession- and discipline-oriented research as well as artistic activities. The overall purpose of the research is to further develop the overall knowledge, approaches and skills in society with regard to learning, teaching and collaboration. The department also includes archival studies researching the challenges of document management, digitalization, transparent administration and data protection.
