The University is a highly acknowledged research and teacher training university for primary and lower secondary school teachers. Students can acquire master degrees and PhDs in pedagogy.
It is famous for its educational research and design. Many EU-projects are coordinated by the University. As a European project of high standard, LEMA is now in its closing phase and has had significant impact on all partnering nations and beyond.
The Institution has a profound interest in improving school teaching practices and its many projects reflect this pragmatic emphasis. Furthermore, the University has excellent connections to many networks (teachers, educators and researchers) and the regional school authority. This close relationship to key actors within education has always guaranteed the success of projects aiming at developing new pedagogies in day-to-day teaching practice.
