The Institute of Educational Sciences has a long-established tradition based on a broad course offering and a diversity of disciplinary and didactical approaches, which have developed in correspondence with changes in societal needs. In this line of development, it is essential to recognise challenges such as the internationalisation of education, the demands of the knowledge society or the digital transformation also in the teaching context.
Our quality criteria are based on the principle that diversity in teaching approaches leads to creative and responsive solutions. Our goal is to provide high-quality education based on the status quo within the scientific community. Only in this way, we can enable students to develop into creative and critically thinking individuals, with science-based problem-solving competences, teamwork skills and competences for responsible action.
We ensure the quality of our teaching through various, reciprocally complementary perspectives on contexts of education so that students can acquire a broad range of knowledge and competences. Therefore, we pay much attention to curriculum and teaching development, and to quality assurance measures to sustain the University as a place for rich study experiences and lifelong learning.
