27/4/2017 - Academic visit from Slovakia at the University of Regensburg

In the framework of the mobility programme ERASMUS+ | 27. – 31.3.2017

Associate Professor Mária Pisoňová and Dr. Adriana Nagyová from our partner Comenius University in Bratislava (Faculty of Education) spent a few days at the University of Regensburg. During their stay the Slovakian scientists, whose major field of expertise is school management, shared ideas to collaborate with colleagues from the Institute of Education at the University of Regensburg. Both scientists also had the opportunity to visit different schools in Regensburg with the aim to learn more about the German school system and to get an insight into teaching methods.

The dean of the faculty, Professor Dr. Dr. h. c. Hans Gruber mentioned during the meeting: “… we’ve found some unexpected links in the time we’ve spent together – such as working with the same people on big projects, and thinking of some potential research collaboration ideas. We’ve also been talking about the possibility of arranging student field trips to Slovakia.”

9/2/2017 - International guest Marjaana Puurtinen, PhD

Marjaana PuurtinenMarjaana Puurtinen, PhD. is working at the Department of Teacher Education Turku Institute for Advanced Studies (TIAS) in Finland. Her general research interests are expertise in music reading, expertise in history, eye-movement research, comprehension of text and visuals and conceptual change research. She will be guest at our chair till March 19th

Currently, she is also coordinating the research consortium titled "Reading Music: Eye Movements and the Development of Expertise", funded by the Academy of Finland (ongoing between 1.9.2014-31.8.2018). The leaders of this project are Professor Dr. Erkki Huovinen (Royal College of Music, Stockholm/Schweden; Universität Jyväskylä/Finnland) and Professor Dr. Dr. h. c. Hans Gruber (Universität Regensburg/Deutschland; Universität Turku/Finnland).

During her stay at our chair, she will be conducting an eye-tracking study with organists. In terms of sight-reading, professional organists are, by far, top experts, and therefore of special interest to our project. As organists are required to read from three staves, their reading task is a lot more demanding than for many other instrumentalists. If you are interested in participating, you can write an email to sekretariat.gruber@ur.de.


13/6/2016 - International visit: Dr. Lujza Koldeova

Lujza KoldeovaDuring the week from May 23rd to 27th 2014 we had Dr. Lujza Koldeova as a guest at our chair.

Dr. Koldeova is head of the educational division at the department for education and social pedagogy of Comenius University in Bratislava (Slovakia).

Her scientific interest lies on the field of general pedagogy and empirical research methods within educational science. In these scientific areas she also works as a teacher.

Her research focusses mainly on the scientific area of educational theory, especially on the difficulty with rewards and punishments and their impact on the value system. In line with research project she participated in the creation of an electronic textbook about the basics of methodology of educational science. Currently she's part of a team within a national project working on moral development and attitudes of chrildren.

11/29/2013 - University of Turku (Finnland) - Prof. Dr. Erno Lehtinen

Master Courses Erno Lehtinen

We are happy to have welcomed Prof. Dr. Erno Lehtinen as visiting professor in Regensburg.

During his stay from October 15th until November 30th, he was teaching two courses:

Long-term development of number concept

This course will deal with the state of the art research on the learning and development in young children and school students. The aim is to show how mathematical thinking and adequate development of number concept can be supported with pedagogical interventions.

Research Traditions in Learning and Development

The basic idea is to become familiar with three historically salient perspectives on (research on) learning. Our theories of learning should be able to cover this complexity in order to be able to adequately inform pedagogical practices and the development of learning environments in natural situations. However, theories of learning and teaching methods based on these theories typically only deal with narrow aspects of these complex phenomena. The aim of this course is to provide students with a view to different theories and units of analysis in learning research which can help them in dealing with the complexity of real learning situations.


04/29/2013 - Invited talk by Prof. Dr. M. Henninger

Prof. Dr. Michael Henninger

On Thursday, May 2 (12-2 pm), Prof. Dr. M. Henninger from PH Weingarten will give a talk about the relevance of communication in medical education and in the workplace. He will introduce the programmes CaiMan and mBased and explain conception, development, and implementation.

More information about his research can be found on the homepage (http://www.md-phw.de/site/henninger.html).

If you like to join his presentation, please contact Dr. Helen Jossberger for further information.


University of Turku (Finnland) - Mirjamaija Mikkilä-Erdmann

Mirjamaija Mikkilä-Erdmann from the University of Turku (Finland) visited our research group at 30th of November 2011.

University of Turku - Henriikka Salminen und Dr. Koen Veermans

Besuch Turku 2011

Our research group is cooperating with the Department of Educational Science of the University of Turku in research since years. In the course of this research cooperation we had the idea to develop a joint degree course. Henriikka Salminen and Dr. Koen Veermans from the University Turku (Finland) came to Regensburg from 12th to 13th of September 2011 to work out a concrete plan.

In this project meeting we discussed details of our cooperation and further steps for the implementation of the joint degree course.


Prof. Dr. Nunner-Winkler

Prof. Dr. Nunner-Winkler

The core issue of the interdisciplinary course “Werte bilden. Grundlagen und empirische Erfassung ethischen Lernens” [Educate Values. Principles and Measurement of Ethic Learning] was the question how ethical learning can be implemented in the concept of action oriented education.

Prof. Dr. G. Nunner-Winkler (Max-Planck-Institut of Cognition and Neuro Science, Munich) gave a lecture on moral development of children and adolescents.

You can find further information on this topic in the „Neuen Züricher Zeitung“ (in German): http://www.nzz.ch/2006/12/10/ws/articleEPZ6N.html


Prof. Dr. Oser

Prof. Dr. Oser

The core issue of the interdisciplinary course “Werte bilden. Grundlagen und empirische Erfassung ethischen Lernens” [Educate Values. Principles and Measurement of Ethic Learning] was the question how ethical learning can be implemented in the concept of action oriented education.

The lecture of Prof. Dr. F. Oser (Fribourg University, Switzerland) had the provoking title

"Lieber Gauner sein, als doof:  Von der Lust das moralische Leiden zu umgehen und Zwiespältiges politisch zu rechtfertigen." [It is better to be a scoundrel than to be dumb: The passion to circumvent moral suffering and to politically justify ambiguity.]
