Connecting with the national and international scientific community is important to us. Our national and international collaborations involve various areas: Research, teaching and staff mobility.
A central component of IBP's international activities is its participation in the following international research projects (in alphabetical order):
- European Literacy Network (ELN)
- Implementation of quality development processes in early years education and care institutions, Erasmus+ Projekt „Qualimentary“, (Consortium Management in Austria (Graz), Italy, Slovenia, Portugal, Hungary, Germany)
- International Research Network (IRN) 'Organizational Education – Futures in Organizing
- Rethink Education and Science in Iraq: Development and testing of innovative and interdisciplinary teaching formats in Iraq on topics of reconstruction and reconciliation to support the re-establishment of the University of Mosul. Researching higher education development in times of crisis with a special focus on the educational participation of different minorities.
- Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study (TIMSS): Research on disparities in student performance in mathematics and science in an international comparison as a member of the scientific consortium of TIMSS 2019 in Germany. In addition, participation in the International Questionnaire Development Group.
The IBP maintains close contacts with many educational institutions worldwide through partnerships and participation in mobility programs (e.g. Erasmus+). Information can be found at: http://international.uni-graz.at/
Internationally, we will further develop teacher training in the coming years within the framework of the cooperation project GRAZiL with the University of Leipzig, which focuses on the exchange of teachers and students. As part of the Study Inclusive Education, we organize an annual excursion to various European countries (Portugal, Sweden, Italy, Bosnia-Herzegovina, etc.).
Staff members of the IBP are internationally mobile: In the last five years, various research stays were realized, partly financed by grants (e.g. Universität Genf, Mont Clair University, Bibliothek für Bildungsgeschichtliche Forschung des DIPF, Berlin, University of Hertforshire, UK). In addition, visiting scholars from abroad (e.g., from Germany, Bosnia-Herzegovina, UK, Portugal, South Africa) have visited the Institute for research stays, project exchanges, and guest lectures.
