Research Biology Education


Biology Education is the science of teaching and learning biological content and methods. The research-based education of biology is a central component of biology teacher training. One focus of our work is the modeling and assessing of competences among students, student teachers and teachers in the field of scientific inquiry. We work with qualitative and quantitative methods of empirical social research. In the context of experimental intervention studies, we examine the effectiveness of concepts for the diagnosis and transfer skills of (prospective) teachers as well as teaching programs for schoolchildren. We ensure the transfer to school practice through school-related publications and training courses.
