Principle Investigator: Fischer, F., Reiss, K., Ufer, S. and Kollar, I.

EP4: ForschenLernen: Scientific Reasoning and Argumentation

The BMBF-funded joint research project ForschenLernen investigates the effects of inquiry-based learning and aims to examine activities that have been implemented within the “quality for teaching” funding program.

Principle Investigator: Fischer, M., Fischer, F., Mieg, H. and Deicke, W

EP5: DFG Research Unit: Active Perception
