Research projects / Development projects
Hamburg teacher education uses scientific concepts and findings as impulses for the further development of curricula and training programs in the first and second phase of teacher education. Researchers at Universität Hamburg and the four public universities – Hamburg University of Technology (TUHH), Hamburg University of Music and Theatre (HfMT), Hamburg University of Fine Arts (HFBK), Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW) – strive to acquire funding for projects from which such impulses can result.
The currently major project of this kind was acquired by Universität Hamburg within the framework of the Quality Initiative Teacher Education: In the project "Professional teachers´ actions to promote subject-based learning under changing social conditions" (Professionelles Lehrerhandeln zur Förderung fachlichen Lernens unter sich verändernden gesellschaftlichen Bedingungen (ProfaLe)) more than 30 research associates dedicate themselves to developing and investigating teaching opportunities which support the integration of knowledge acquired in the teacher education programs.
This project builds on numerous successful studies in which scientists from Universität Hamburg were involved, e.g. Teacher Education Study in Mathematics (TEDS-M) and the State research cluster Linguistic Diversity Management in Urban Areas – LiMA.
