We are a research and learning community interested in the state of education in society and the reshaping of education. We train socially and culturally aware, broad thinkers, experts in education and changemakers in all levels of education, from early childhood education to adult education. Our learning community values the diversity of viewpoints and encourages broad and critical thinking.

Our research focuses on educational activities and educational knowledge, as well as educational institutions. We see education as a tool for social change, which is why the aim of our activities is to promote the development and study of educational principles and practices in society.

Our focus is on

  • changing and multicultural educational and work environments
  • the societal aspects of teacher training
  • educational policies, structures and cultures

As experts, we participate in public discussion on educational policy and in the strengthening of civil society.
