Department of Subject-Specific Education


The Department of Subject-Specific Education was founded in 2012 and unites the subject-specific education of future teachers. It is organised into three sections: Science, Geography, Computer Science, and Mathematics Education; Language Education including English, French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish; History, Social Studies and Civic Education. All of them are characterised by a research- and theory-led approach to teaching which emphasises the importance of providing a scientifically and empirically substantiated education for specialised teachers at the secondary levels I and II. There are also numerous national and international project groups conducting transversal research and generating results that are particularly important for the future-oriented field of Science Education. The results also form the scientific foundation of tasks created for the partially-centralised, standardised school-leaving exam in all foreign languages. The department thus has the most comprehensive cooperation of subject-specific education at Austrian universities so far.
