Research at the UCTE – Carinthia

The University College of Teacher Education – Carinthia strives to improve the scientific foundation of its students and teachers in continuing education. As part of these professionalization measures, practically relevant research activities are encouraged. These research activities include not only the teachers, but also, in some cases, the students.

On the one hand, the results of this research activities have direct effect on what is taught in teacher training and in continuing education. On the other hand participants gain research expertise, which, for the purpose of practical research, can also be used for the analysis and improvement of the participant’s own courses.

Many research projects are conducted in cooperation with external partners (national, international, and inter-institutional), or on behalf of and with financial contributions from other organizations/institutions. Our researchers publish their results internationally at conferences and in publications. Every year we hold a research day, to which national and international experts are invited.
