Our research topics
Curriculum and Its Changes
We attempt to answer general questions related to the educational objectives and content specific questions related to the processes of production, implementation, realization and evaluation of curricular documents. Special attention is given to the examination of relations between the theory of curriculum, curricular politics and educational practice regarding the selected discipline-specific and discipline-general issues.
Teaching and Learning
Knowledge concerning processes that take place in classrooms is produced in the projects. Related to this, IRSE develops the methodology of research in teaching and learning by means of video recording and runs research projects aimed at the selected aspects of teaching and learning individual subjects. Through the examination of the transdisciplinary and interdisciplinary relations, IRSE aims at developing the concept of transdisciplinary pedagogy.
Professional Development and Teacher Training
The third research area is research in the professional development and teacher training, which is understood as profiling at the faculties of education. It focuses on the process of professional development from a novice teacher up to an expert teacher. The development of a teacher’s professional competence is observed in the following areas with emphasis on the development of pedagogical content knowledge and professional perception.
