Education, School, and Behaviour

Studentin leitet Kinder an

The university focus "Education", which was established in 2008 alongside the focus "Religion" at the University of Erfurt, has developed dynamically in recent years and focuses on the interaction of research on education, school and behaviour. This involves research into the acquisition of competencies and the question of the conditions on which this acquisition is based. This concerns language and decision making development, questions of inclusion and learning as well as health and media. In its breadth of content, methodological diversity and homogeneity, the research focus at the University of Erfurt is increasingly interesting for young researchers. This allows for a constant reflection on structural developments in research and teaching, especially in the Faculties of Education and Economics, Law and Social Sciences, but also far into the Faculty of Philosophy.
