Snapshots from School - In Times of Crisis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic posed major challenges to people's daily lives and to the global economy. Especially in the field of education, the situation changed drastically for students, teachers and parents, forcing every member of the education system to rethink, to act differently, which probably would not have happened at this pace under "normal" conditions. Online resources, asynchronous teaching concepts and new communication and support options had to be mobilized quickly.

These new circumstances generate moments, innovations, creativity and emotions that the project "Snapshots from School - In Times of Crisis" aims to investigate. The aim of this research topic is to investigate the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on creativity, flexibility and innovation in education, i.e. what is the role of creativity and innovation and their relationship to resilience and coping with the challenges faced by teachers and students. How could creativity remedy this? How flexibly could the system and those involved react and to what extent did these challenges emotionally burden or relieve the students and teachers? What limits were reached and what changes had a positive effect on individuals? Here we also want to find out what emotional consequences the significantly changed conditions in teaching and learning bring and have brought.

The aim of the project is not to report on the tragedy of the situation, but to gain insights into the potential of these developments and their impact on people's emotional lives. A smorgasbord of experiences, impressions, feelings and emotions should shed some light on the situation and allow us to learn from the crisis instead of despairing of it.

We expect contributions from this project that will

  • inform schools and teachers about how teaching is experienced during the COVID-19 school day (teaching materials, project report)
  • inform educational science research on the role creativity and innovation played during the COVID-19 school day
  • support the teaching of educational science principles (teaching materials)
