Teaching of geography and economic education

DID Banner

The group does research in the fields of geography and economics education, with specific emphasis on geomedia uses in education based on the concepts of citizenship education, science education and spatially enabled learning. Both basic research as well as development of learning environments are supported. The group is deeply involved in the provision of german-language (GW-Unterricht) and international (publication GI-Forum) platforms in the field.
The group co-operates closely with the School of Education within the University of Salzburg, and with Universities of Education in Salzburg and Linz.
