The Department of Education and Teachers' Practice has the main fields of study Didactics and Educational Sciences.

The majority of the teaching at the Department of Education and Teachers' Practice consists of courses in the educational science core (UVK) in the teacher education programmes. These UVK courses deal with, among other things, curriculum theory and (general) didactics, knowledge and learning, the basic values of preschool and school, and clinical education

The department's main research activities are conducted in the research fields of value education, curriculum theory, childhood studies and teachers' work.

In addition to basic education, we take on school development issues and skills development initiatives (quality work) on behalf of the state, municipalities and individual schools.
