Research and Education in Times of Transformation

Research Day 23.03.2023

Educational Sciences are currently facing profound social changes: pandemic, climate change, war and violence, increasing social injustice, a technological change as perceived in the area of digitalization, the intensified mediatedness as well as aestheticization of all areas of life, are only some phenomena that can be subsumed under the term transformation. Transformation also poses the question of sustainability.
