Research Interest Show content

Our research work focuses in particular on (1) the didactic reconstruction of current research topics for schools and student laboratories - e.g. nanotechnology, green chemistry, (photo-) catalysis, functional materials, chemistry and medicine - as well as on (2) the development of digital teaching-learning tools (LabPi) with accompanying teaching-learning formats for teaching, learning and research. These topics will be synergistically networked with each other in (3) the development of (digitally) enhanced learning environments in student and teaching-learning laboratories. The work in all three research areas is closely linked to school practice and all three phases of teacher training.
