In­ter­dis­cip­lin­ary re­search on edu­ca­tion is im­port­ant in many areas of edu­ca­tion and busi­ness. Our group's teach­ing and re­search fo­cus on the in­di­vidual, so­cial and in­sti­tu­tional factors that con­trib­ute to edu­ca­tional pro­cesses.

Main re­search and teach­ing areas:

The­ory-­based em­pir­ical re­search in­ten­ded to help ful­fill so­ci­etal goals with regard to schools, uni­versit­ies, and pro­fes­sional train­ing and con­tinu­ing edu­ca­tion.

Im­part­ing edu­ca­tional science know­ledge in MSc pro­grams.

Co­oper­at­ing with aca­demic and edu­ca­tional or­gan­iz­a­tions to im­prove the qual­ity of teach­ing and con­duct prac­tic­ally ori­ented re­search

Our work is char­ac­ter­ized by an evid­ence-­based, in­ter­na­tion­ally ori­ented and in­teg­rat­ive ap­proach. We ap­ply edu­ca­tion science meth­ods that are ap­pro­pri­ate for deal­ing with com­plex the­or­ies and which ful­fill the ex­pect­a­tions of the scien­ti­fic com­munity. We pre­pare fu­ture pro­fes­sion­als for their roles in edu­ca­tional in­sti­tu­tions and com­pan­ies. We per­form ana­lyses and sup­port re­forms in schools, uni­versit­ies and busi­nesses. In our pro­jects we con­duct re­search on edu­ca­tional pro­cesses and the in­sti­tu­tion­al­iz­a­tion of edu­ca­tion. We com­bine re­search with prac­tic­ally ori­ented teach­ing and learn­ing. We im­part valu­able aca­demic know­ledge upon which pro­fes­sional skills can be based.
