Research and Evaluation
Theoretical positions on education and pedagogical criticism
The study of “Bildung” and education is fundamental to the institutionalized school system. In terms of conceptual history, the following questions are central: What is the current understanding of education? How can we facilitate educational processes? What educational goals are we pursuing? Derived from this, pedagogical critique of institutional routines becomes a main concern.
Educational institutions and educational evaluation research
The evaluation research developed at the department focuses on aspects of institutionally organised mediation and (initial) education. The successful design of educational and work processes in the interplay between the demands of the profession, politics and administration is at the centre of the analysis.
Aesthetic educational research and pedagogical experience
Educational processes are constituted through and in aesthetic dimensions. This raises the question of how aesthetic practice is carried out and how it can be learned and taught. By way of cultural mediation practices, possibilities for the aesthetic dimensions in the design of educational processes are considered.
