Preproject research group higher education
In the project to prepare a research group on university didactics, we want to initiate systematic didactic research on university teaching and studies, network researchers and contribute in the long term to establishing university didactics as an educational sub-discipline. This possibility exists because higher education didactics itself designates the field of research ("university") in its very name, similar to education or science research. In addition, the concept of didactics has disciplinary potential (see Rothland, 2008; Terhart, 2019), the special feature of which - in contrast to general didactics - lies in the teaching-learning object "science", which can also be described as science didactics (Huber, 2018, p. 37ff.).
The project will first reconstruct past major application initiatives for university didactics and then, under the coordination of the HUL, prepare a concept paper with UHH internal and external cooperation partners. The project was jointly applied for by Gabi Reinmann, Carla Bohndick, Eileen Lübcke and Alexa Brase and will be funded by the Ideas and Risk Fund of the University of Hamburg from June on. Marikje Kaufmann is a research assistant in the project. The aim is to develop a draft proposal for a DFG research group.
