Projects of the Leibniz School of Education


The development proposal “Theoria cum praxi. Promotion of the reflective capacity to act as a Leibniz-Principle for Teacher Education”, or in short Leibniz-Prinzip, is funded in line with the collective Quality Campaign Teacher Education through resources of the Federal Ministry of Education and Research by the federal state and the country.


Changed learning and working worlds in vocational teacher education

Teacher education quality offensive – 2nd funding phase, additional selection round, focus on “digitization in teacher education and/or “teacher education for vocational schools”

The Leibniz works 4.0 project forms a future concept for vocational teaching (LBS) at Leibniz Universität Hannover (LUH). It takes into account the fact that there is a very specific need in vocational teacher education compared to other teaching positions. The main reasons for this are the professional biographical characteristics of the student clientele and special requirements for work in vocational schools. The latter is also subject to massive dynamics of change due to the world of work 4.0, for which preparation must be made, especially in teacher education courses.

Teaching Change

Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) in teacher education

The project "Teaching Change - Development and testing of teaching concepts on basic climate protection and sustainability topics in teacher training" aims to sensitize prospective teachers and special educators across subjects and school types in their important role as multipliers for sustainability and social change to strengthen. To this end, ESD should be integrated into teaching as a cross-cutting topic.


The #LernenVernetzt project emerged from a cooperation between the Leibniz School of Education (LSE), the Institute for Educational Science (IEW) and the IGS quality network in Hanover and the region (Q-IGS) and has been organizing since the outbreak of COVID-19 Pandemic student support for teaching staff and learners in schools and educational institutions. Students take on a variety of tasks. For example, they act as learning companions for the students, they actively help shape the lessons or support the pedagogical specialists in their preparation and follow-up work. The cooperation between students and educational staff takes place with regard to the needs of the actors in attendance and/or digitally. The focus is always on the individual needs of the learners and the main goal of the #LernenVernetzt project: to make a decisive contribution to shaping a more educational future.
