Research in pedagogy in higher education

Pedagogy in higher education deals with adult learning within the framework of higher education. Students' learning within formal learning situations is explored with an interdisciplinary approach, based on different theoretical perspectives and with different research methods.

Academic subject specialists from all over the University meet to jointly explore and design academic teaching. Ongoing research spans areas such as learning environments, professional development, broadened participation, digital learning, challenge-based learning and academic literacy.
