Orientation Knowledge for Teachers of the Future (OWiss)

Teachers and school administrators should know what they are talking about when they talk about e.g. digitalization, inclusion or sustainability. They need tools and procedures to navigate the increasingly confusing field of educational research, which is characterized by multiperspectivity. In academia, systematic reviews are a common way to maintain an overview. However, little has been done to provide similar tools for teachers in their daily work and to orvide an overview of research results. The innovative potential of the project is therefore to transfer methods for breaking down fuzzy terms and topics in educational science and their results into a webinar, to develop digital tools and to prepare further research overviews. In this way, teachers and school administrators will receive guidance on complex terms and topics and their professional actions will be supported.
