Research in Technology Education: Methods, Approaches & Presenting

02.-03. July 2018, University of Duisburg-Essen, Center of Excellence for Technology Education, Germany

The CETE Summer School is a junior conference for young academics founded by the DAAD. It offers the opportunity of professional exchange and networking as well as workshops about methods, approaches and presenting in the research field of technology education.

 

The CETE Summer School wants to connect cross-national as well as interdisciplinary researchers and young academics for an exchange. It opens up a research-oriented forum for the accounted research potential still growing number of junior scientists who deal with technology education and its benefit and impact.

The international summer school is organised for young academics as well as students and all who are interested.

There is no conference fee.

Further Information

CETE and its summer school

The Center of Excellence for Technology Education (CETE) is supposed to open up more possibilities for the nationally and internationally scientific community. The exploration of Technology Education Processes ought to be boosted through joint research projects, Ph.D. exchanges, guest-lectures as well as international workshops and summer schools. Further, the work of excellent young academics in the research fields of technical sciences shall be supported by the network. Technology Education needs to develop competencies, promote talents and interests and hereby create positive identifications with technology in order to grant people maturity in a technology orientated world and in order to render society technological progress. Fulfilling these demands in the long run is the superior aim of the CETE network.

The CETE Summer School wants to connect cross-national as well as interdisciplinary researchers and young academics for an exchange. It opens up a research-oriented forum for the accounted research potential to the still growing number of junior scientists who deal with Technology and Engineering Education and its benefit and impact.

Research perspectives can be extended, specified and location independent cooperation can be initiated, through the interdisciplinary networking of scientists who deal with the topic empirically. The multidisciplinary exchange enables junior scientists to gather feedback and suggestions from different disciplinary perspectives. It contributes to embedding individual projects from the fields of teaching methodology and educational sciences in the overall context of empirical educational research. By doing this the organisation supports the visibility of joint research interests and research topics. It establishes a starting position for joint evaluations and future interdisciplinary and location independent research efforts of universities.
