Qualification projects

Within the framework of the projects that are linked to the IZeF, qualification projects are regularly advertised. This includes bachelor and master theses for students as well as topics and project opportunities for doctorates (and post-doctoral research if necessary). Through the connection to the research projects in the IZeF, current topics from the field of teacher and teaching research are announced and made available for final papers. This enables relevant research questions and important research desiderata to be dealt with, with close links and support within the framework of the projects and further offers on the part of the participating professors, such as in the form of colloquia, for example.

Due to the large number of projects, a wide range of topics can be offered, from relevant issues to decidedly research methodological questions.

3. Future strategy for teacher education (ZuS)

In the field of action "Quality Assurance" several bachelor and master theses are to be awarded at the Chair for Empirical Research on Schools with a focus on quantitative methods (Prof. Dr. Johannes König). The topic of the work is individually variable and should include a partial aspect of teacher education monitoring. In this context you will also have the opportunity to actively participate in the concrete research process (e.g. questionnaire design, data collection, data entry, data control).

Interested and committed students are welcome to contact the ZuS Quality Assurance team.
